We're still hanging about around here. We ran into a bit of a snag the other day and are a few tiles short of finishing a part of the backsplash, so the boys are tackling some of the less exciting finishing work while we wait for those to come in.
One thing we did yesterday was implement Mission: Peekaboo Micro. The layout of our kitchen won't accommodate a wall unit and I was pretty hell-bent on my mantle-ish cabinetry over the stove in lieu of hanging a microwave there. My word, was that big black box ever so garish sitting on my new counter. After a little head-scratching and measuring and accepting the loss of one shelf, we decided to have the guys install an outlet in the pantry so we could slide that puppy in and store it out of sight for good.
It's making me very happy. It's the little things, you know. And if pantry storage ends up really being a giant pain in the derriere, we can always take it back out. For now, I like shutting the doors on that thing.
Photo note: I've been terrible about using my real camera these days. With our house in total upheaval, it seems like I've lost my shooting and downloading mojo and can't make real photos happen. I have been enjoying some photo apps on my iphone, thank goodness. (As much as I love my Hipstamatic app, the Instagram app is even faster and easier, I think. And then I can upload directly to flickr as well... who needs a computer?? ) xo
