As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Another Sneak Peek

The scene tonight...preparing our evening coffee with water from the kitchen sink (not the bathtub), with the coffee pot back on the counter (not in the kitchen floor).'s simple pleasures. 

You can see a glimpse of the new wood countertop, and the bead board backsplash. 

Earlier, Ron drilled the holes for the faucet.  We had needed to wait for a coat of stain and four applications of polyurethane to dry before the faucet could be installed, thus we had been without a kitchen sink since last week.     

The sound of running water tonight was glorious.  And the coffee tasted especially good. 

Tasks completed:

Tasks yet to complete:

  • A bit of molding around the farmhouse sink
  • Finish repairing the hole in the wall
  • Another coat of paint on backsplash
  • Make second window sill and bottom trim
  • Touch up cabinet/wall paint 
  • Make new cabinet doors to accomodate smaller space under the new sink
  • Make valances

We're getting there!


  1. Yay! Being without the convenience of running water in the kitchen must've been a challenge. Everything looks so nice...I know that you are working on the finishing touches so thank you so much for the glimpse. It's keeping my curiosity piqued!

  2. This is torture, I just want you to know. I CAN'T Wait to see your kitchen in person!!! It looks soooo beautiful. What a great job, you guys.
