Well, the floor is done and they have started putting the cabinets in. I am starting to get a inkling of how it's going to look. Pretty fabulous if I do say so myself.
I love the way the light shines on the cabinets.


I worry about the wood floor. Trying to keep it from getting dented may be a challenge being as I am clumsy and drop things alot. There will be plenty of rugs all over which should help some, but we live in our house so it will get walked on with shoes and stuff. Oh well, it will still look beautiful for a long time and even if it gets gouged or scratched badly it can be fixed.

Friday morning they are coming to measure for the countertop. Then it will be ready for installation in 2-3 weeks.

Hopefully, this weekend I can start putting stuff away in the cabinets. Everything is all over the place and covered in dust. I probably should have covered everything with sheets but that would be planning ahead of time; and planning ahead of time is rarely in my brain chemistry!

Work as been a little tense lately. No ones job is indespensible and, given the economy right now, everyone is worried that they will start making cuts and they will lose their job.

It's been pretty cold lately, I have been walking in to work every morning.

Nice and brisk!!

Love those white cabinets! We have white ones too along with the wood floor. It's been great. Don't worry about the wood floor. As it ages, it will have "character" - just like us! Well, at least ME - hahahaha!

Best wishes on surviving the economic turmoil right now.

I love the color of the cabinets! I need to get mine painted some day. They are the original cabinets and they were made of good wood but they are stained dark brown. I would like a creamy white!

Junebug..I painted our cabinets in our old house from dark brown to white. It was a lot of work but worth it!

The floor looks absolutely gorgeous. You must be so excited about it all starting to come together, but the 2 to 3 week wait for the counter tops must be agony.

My goodness, it's all coming along so nice. I LOVE the cabinets; just gorgeous. I can't wait until it's done and it's not even mine. hahahaha But, truly I'm so happy for you guys!!

I hope and pray your jobs will be secure. ((HUGS))

It looks wonderful! I can't wait to see it all finished.

This is the first time I have really been worried about the economy. We have to have faith that this too shall pass. In the meantime we are cutting back.
