If you haven't seen my Happy News
yet, be sure to check out my last post
! In the meantime . . .
Ron is off this week and things are happening in the kitchen!
And I am not
talking about cooking, although there has been some of that too. After all, autumn has finally arrived and I am itching to cook fall foods. This week I have made White Chicken Chili from the Love, Welcome, Serve
cookbook, a Bolognese sauce served over spaghetti squash, and a Harvest Apple Cake
. I'm also planning to make a batch of pumpkin muffins to share.
But back to the kitchen.
After three-and-a-half years in the Pineapple House . . .
. . . the washing machine is out of my kitchen and has been moved to the basement! Yay!!
Now work is underway on the south wall of the kitchen. If you recall,
we are Ron is moving the refrigerator over, reconfiguring the cabinets, building a new base cabinet unit, and installing new countertop. Then we'll need to paint this wall of cabinets.
Before . . .
Work in progress . . .
Gotta love it when your refrigerator is in the middle of the floor! 🤣 (Actually, I DO love it because it means that progress is being made!)
Side note: I hate that the cabinet/trim color reads pink
in photos. You may recall that parts of the kitchen trim have been painted three times already
and I promised Ron that I would settle on this third color (Benjamin Moore's Kangaroo) and be content. I am content sometimes. When the lighting is just right, it is the color that I like. But artificial light brings out the slightest tint of pink and photos make it worse. Sigh.
Ron is making great strides this week, and we both hope to have all the work done by Thanksgiving!
