Hello! I am sorry there is not much new here for dinner but I am hoping to pop in and post something next week. We are in the midst of kitchen remodeling and I am totally wondering why I thought the month of May would be a good time to do this. Yes, the weather is pleasant for eating outdoors and for working inside, but what a busy month this was! Just the last two weeks were so full with a dozen graduation parties, one going away party and four birthday parties- three of which were in my immediate family! We have also had two sets of guests who braved the piles of boxes and furniture to stay the night here and another on her way this week. In addition, we are entering June, always a busy month and the kitchen still has two to three more weeks of work before we begin the dining room/living room painting and carpeting. Then it is on to the backyard (or back garden)!
Whew! I am not complaining because I do know I am very lucky that when we are done working we will have a lovely kitchen to enjoy but, yes, I am giving an excuse for lack of blogging :-) However, since I am eating out so much, I think I will blog on one or more of the little places we have been frequenting. So keep an eye out for that!
Would you like a little peek at the new color of our wood floor? We did hire a flooring company to come and re-do our floors. I really like the way they turned out! This is one of the few things we did not do ourselves but my husband re did our floors once and I know it is totally worth it to have professionals sand, stain and varnish! They had a machine that sucked up most of the awful dust as they worked!
Now we are on to getting the last few cabinets installed, next week we will get our granite counters and the follwing week we will have appliances!! Did I tell you we found a great deal on appliances and will have an induction cooktop? It will be an adjustment; I may be burning everything!
