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.

{30 Days of Thankfulness} Day 6


I am thankful for my kitchen!

About a month ago, I have you a progress update. Ron was off that week and we (mostly he) were working hard on the kitchen checklist. Our goal was completion by Thanksgiving. But guess what?

We finished last week! 

I plan to do a separate blog post sometime soon (need to get some good photos). But in the meantime, here's a sneak peek. 

Yes, I am thankful for my kitchen . . . and for my handyman!

  1. Always nice to get a project done and to have it done ahead of schedule is an extra blessing. Looks very nice. Now I’m wondering about the paint because it definitely is not reading pink. Ron did a fabulous job.

    1. Thank you, Vee! It is so nice to have it done and Ron outdid himself on this project. You'd never know that there was a washing machine there and that the new cabinets had not always been there!

      Photo editing? Same paint though.

  2. Oh, that's a lovely corner in your kitchen. And how lovely that you (and handyman hubby) got the project done well ahead of the stated goal.

    1. Our projects have not always been so timely! There was a time that we were doing a major remodel of our Farmhouse dining room (new windows, refinishing floors, paint, new drywall . . . major) so that we could use the room for a big 50th birthday party for my dad. We were painting the trim the night before the party!. Too close for comfort! Not sure whether our skills have improved or our expectations became more realistic.

      Regardless, I am grateful to be finished ahead of schedule!

    2. Cheryl,

      When I was a girl my dad built new kitchen cupboards in our little farmhouse where he grew up/where I grew up. The final touches of that project was being done one Christmas Eve -- as happy as my mom was for the new cupboards, she was getting antsy that the kitchen was still such a mess and we were about to head into Christmas with her house still upside down. I think that was a project 'too close for comfort' too! :)

      My dad used to tease my mom sometimes. (I don't know if it was deliberate.) He'd be working away on something and suddenly say, Oh no! My mom would rush to ask him what's wrong ... and then he'd reply, Oh, it's okay, I'll be able to fix that. It used to make her crazy. Funny, the little old things we remember from back then.

    1. Thank you, Martha Ellen! I need for there to be time at home + good lighting conditions so that I can get some decent photos. The kitchen is difficult to photograph. But I'll be working on it!

      Ron is an amazing DIY-er!

    1. Thanks, Ellen! I am eager to share! (I just wish Kati had not taken our --ahem-- her good camera with her when she got married.) 😉
