Closing in on the finish line…

The third week of kitchen work has come to a close.  All but two of the cabinet doors have been re-hung and I just need to make a jig for setting the door knobs.  Easier said than done.  I reckon I will spend Monday morning working on that.  I actually didn’t touch any paint today.  That’s a good thing.  After being elbows deep for three weeks, It was nice to take a brief break.

  Scott has actually talked about re-doing all of the doors with a different, new paint.  Neither of us likes the texture of the current new finish.  The latex enamel that he selected dries more quickly than the oil based type.  There is no chance for the paint to ‘run together’ and form a cohesive layer.  The brush marks are very pronounced.  So, he wants to change it already.  Aaaaggghhhhh!  That will mean removing all of the paint I just laid down.  I don’t know about all of that…

The new refrigerator is in.  It’s a KitchenAid with three front doors – two up top and one on the bottom for the freezer.  It’s sweet.  It’s got a touchscreen where you can ask it to perform different functions.  There is a USB port for loading photos that show up on the screen.  It will do conversions and dispense specific quantities of water.  It’s pretty neat..  Stainless…

Scott was picking up the matching range and while the men were loading it onto our trailer, one of them lost control and broke the cook top.  hmmmm.  brain surgery it’s not…  so that is now delayed while they order the new cooktop for it.  Can’t wait ’til everything is up and running.  Our current skinny oven has been a sore spot for me for years.  The new one will fill in perfectly.. 

The weather these last two days has been beautiful.  The ‘Smiths let the boys spend the night last night and then took them across the river to Cousins Rest. by boat this morning.  78 deg. is not all that bad for a February day when the rest of the states are pretty miserable.  Except, of course, for Maui, where it is always beautiful. 

Scott was talking about me heading back out there to see the family.  The notion of me flying with one of the children has been bandied about.  We would have to draw straws to see who would go first since we can’t do all of us at the same time.  I really want for them to experience the air there.  It’s just so… perfect.
