Somehow The Boy and I both got a three day weekend together, so kitchen renovations are back in full swing. We spent the better part of today smashing out tile and cabinets and now the kitchen is completely empty. Except for some old linoleum that doesn’t want to come up, but we’ll worry about that later.
We made it through the day without injury! Unless you count the window, which The Boy accidentally smashed with the hammer…. so we’re getting a new window too! Yay. So tomorrow we will be assembling and hopefully installing cabinets. We have what seems like thousands of IKEA boxes in our garage full of various bits and bobs that are supposed to come together to form cabinets somehow, but we’ll see how that actually turns out tomorrow. We need to get them up soon, we paid for our countertops today. Assuming things go well(ish), here’s a bit of what we’ll be putting in…
Countertops – Silestone.
I am so sore right now and it’s probably going to be even worse tomorrow. The Boy is in the kitchen taping plastic over our window as a temporary fix until we can get the new one installed and I think that maybe I will knit on the awful socks for a while before I collapse for the night.
Oh yeah, I went to Stitches West yesterday and bought a lot of stuff. Lots of roving, a couple sweater quantities, some stuff for my yarn room, etcetera. Maybe I didn’t really need any of that stuff, as it is very possible that I may be approaching SABLE status, but the new additions definitely look nice on my yarn shelves…
For the non-knitters, SABLE stands for stash acquisition beyond life expectancy, when one has more yarn than one can possibly knit in their own lifetime. That’s perfectly acceptable though, right?
