Wow!!!! I'm on an island kick! I wish....and I'm not even a tropical person!
Right now the temperature has dropped 12 degrees since I got up. Last night I slept with the window open. Yesterday people were shopping in sleeveless tops and shorts.........later today we may need snow boots. Tonight it will drop to 18F.............and tomorrow morning we may require ice skates and, knowing our school system, there will be delayed or cancelled classes again. At this rate, with so many lost school days, the kids may never get a Summer vacation!
What in the world is going on with the weather......everywhere?
So what do you think? Did I do well or not? Does my vision of making my already useful kitchen island work even better? Small house, smallish kitchen, older limited space cabinets, large soup pots and baking dishes...............it suddenly hit me like a smack in the head a few weeks back. French magazine photo showed a kitchen island with a pot rack underneath - why had I never thought of that. Perhaps because I forgot to marry a handyman, or one who loves building things, or playing about with wood! I didn't listen to my mother - she always told me, "don't marry a man like your father who can't even hammer a nail in the wall".
I did! So, borrowed my friend's hubby for this job. He came this morning, installed the rack he designed and I painted over the weekend............and I am thrilled with it. This is almost better than being away on a tropical island for me.
Update: It's sleeting. It's so cold.Although I have my island, and hubby has piled up the firewood for tonight, I also have my painter working upstairs today. The textured ceiling in the 'office' is scraped smooth, a huge fan is blowing cold air about the cottage (and I'm now wearing a huge scarf wound around my neck, and fuzzy socks!) to dry it before he can return from a long lunch and start painting! With the possibility of bad weather tomorrow, will he be able to return? I see this reno running over into Wed. even perhaps Thur. Hopefully he'll be long gone by Fri. when the new carpet is due to arrive!
