ALSO remodeling the family check book! (Hear hubbie groaning.) Now I need a few things more, besides all the new yummy lighting, plugs, new granite, sink, faucets, globbeta-gloppeta machine, new paint to replace old wallpaper. New pots, don't you think? New dish towels. Maybe new kitchen window shades and--
Wait, wait, says hubby. What do you need all that for?
Dunno, babe. Just in the mood. SEEMS right, donchaknow.
The above? Old kitchen.
Soon? New kitchen. We've been torn up here for--oh, shoot me, please--over 4 weeks!!!
Happy they are nearly done.
Why redo the place? Well, I spend most of my day in my office, approx. 8 hours. In the kitchen? 2-4 hours. I love to cook. It is my Decompression. Relaxation. And since I have promised for years now to close up my office at 5, 6 at the latest and come downstairs to share cocktail hour and create dinner, I figured after 15 years, it was time to spruce up the place. And hubbie has gotten himself a new super-duper wine cooler because he is my sommelier and my assistant chef and washes all the dishes, too.
Stay tuned for finished pix of new place to enjoy!
