After months of hard work (well not necessarily me doing the work) the kitchen is finished. Yes, there are still the details but overall the big work is done – painting, floor installation – and it looks great. I am happy to report the new floor is just as comfortable for me and my favorite spot to lay in works just as well with the new floor as with the old. I have posted some pictures so you can see the new colors but it is better to visit in person to get the full effect of what has been accomplished. I finally can lay in peace in the new digs but the weather has turned warm and sunny so I am spending much of my time outside on the patio. Lots of big sticks have come down with the last big storm and the wind this past weekend and I am doing my best to help clean them up. I noticed Amy putting fencing in the garden so that must mean plants are beginning to peek through – I can be a bit clumsy and step on them when they are small so she does her best to protect them early in the season. I so do love the garden in the spring to she has her work cut out for her. I’ll be out all week in the good weather so I will be posting some signs of spring next.
