Week 6 in Pictures

Another busy week has come and gone.  We're making great progress on the Great Kitchen Remodel.  The ceiling tiles are up, the drywall is up, mud applied, and primered.  Hopefully today we will get what needs painted done.  We don't need to paint much since most of it is getting covered by cabinets and backsplash.  Doug is hoping to get the floor put down today also.  Once the floor is down, we can call to bump up the delivery date on the cabinets.  Oh, and we ordered appliances this week also.

This week also brought with it a first for me ... I had to wash the dishes in the bathtub.  I never ever thought I'd have to do that.  :)  But it is hard to use the kitchen sink when it is sitting out on your front porch.  :)  I used two dishpans - one to wash and one to rinse.  Or at least put the clean dishes in until I rinsed them with fresh water.  It is so completely strange when one of your children asks you to stop washing dishes and get out of the bathroom because they need to go.  :)  Once the floor is down, Doug will make a temporary set up so we don't have to be without a kitchen sink.  I'm looking forward to that.  Although what I'm really looking forward to is that new dishwasher we ordered!  :)

Surprisingly I did manage to snap a few photos each day.  Here's what I found this week ...

Just a weed I came across while outside enjoying the sunshine.

More sunshine!

Went for a run/walk before dinner.  It was a great way to recharge.

Winter returned.  At least for the day.  Honey and I walked around outside for a bit enjoying the snow.

Drink up is the theme for My 3 Boybarians Project 52 this week.  I drink mostly water and since water is pretty boring to photograph by itself, I added a strawberry.  And photographed it by the window in order to get some sunbursts.

While out shopping for some more things for the kitchen, Doug and I picked up a bouquet of flowers.  Happy Valentine's Day early, I guess.  :)  It has daisies, tiny pink roses, red carnations, pink lilies that I'm waiting to bloom, babies breath, mums, and some other flower that I have no idea what they are.  I just love fresh-cut flowers!

Now winter is back!  We got several inches of snow and blustery winds!  It was soooo cooooold!  Even so, the kids insisted on sledding for a bit on our neighbor's hill.  Alex cracked me up carrying his sled on his head.   (My submission for Inspire Me's red theme).

Hope you have a wonderful, love-filled week!

I just LOVE that horse with the sun shot- wow!!! :)

Kathy said...

These are all fantastic...but my eye is drawn immediately to that last photo. Just that shot of red in the sea of white and tans is so appealing.

Oh my goodness- that flower is so beautifully dreamy!!!! I can only imagine what it's like going through a kitchen remodel like that. I can't wait to see the finished room!
