Kitchen In Process Pics

Hey. Want some pictures of the in-process kitchen?  Are you tired of hearing about the kitchen yet?  Me.  Too.

We're also trying to figure out what to do about mowing and maintaining a summer version of this house (which we've never experienced, you know?), wondering how to open the pool, and planting the gardens (lettuce, spinach, peas, onions, carrots so far).  Oh.  And an orchard.  Have we talked about the orchard?  Apparently we have one now.

Only by God's abundant grace am I still a functioning human right now.  Thanks St. Joseph!

So.  Kitchen.

The beforebeforebefore pics of the kitchen are HERE if you've not seen them yet.  It is scare bear.

Ready, Freddy?

Hey guys....wait up! (7qt)

I'm doin' it!  I'm blogging! What day is it! I don't know what's going on! A major kitchen renovation is no joke! Especially when there's nothing to show for it but an enormous mess!  Beer me!

Three of our eight birthdays happen during the first three weeks of spring, which also happen to coincide with Palm Sunday and Holy Week and Easter this year.  Plus the sap is still flowing and the syrup is still boiling and the garden is being planned and there's a full kitchen remodel starting the weekend after Easter and Paul is preparing for his first communion and oops, I should really order those end of year tests soon, shouldn't I?


Anyway.  I'm not anxious or overwhelmed exactly.  Just....I'm just all in, y'all.  I'm feeling really so immersed in all the things.  So how 'bout some pich-ers instead of talkin'?

Kitchen Re-Re-imagined

If you are not already tired of hearing about The Kitchen....well, bless you.

Once upon a time I wanted all white cabinetry and white countertops and white all the things because I'm delusional or something.  Or I just wanted opposite of what we had in the past maybe? Ugh, it was a hard decision to make, to switch away from that vision.  You know why?  Because I love love love looking at pictures of crisp white kitchens on Pinterest and imagining myself standing at the window with a gentle breeze blowing through my hair whilst I lovingly massage some fine china with my hole-free rubber gloves. Sadly, reality is a thing, you know?

March is too Springish for computering I think

AH MAH GAH. What is haaaaaaaaaaaapening, dweej?

Shoot, y'all.  If you aint on the instagram, you can stalk my feed over in the right sidebar, because it's basically the only place with (almost) daily updates.  I just can't keep up with life right now.  We're happy!  Everyone is great.  Good things.  But whoa.

The weather changed and the snow melted and we started pruning things and babies who had been stuck inside got to start going outside.

Ramona Quimby and the Sacrament of Reconciliation (with pics of Paul's big day!)

These days I'm reading the Ramona books out loud to Paul and Cecilia.  One chapter a night before bed.  She's like a girl Calvin, have you ever noticed?  I'm finding the books WAY more entertaining as an adult with kids than I did as a kid reading them to myself, that's for sure.

Anyway, there's this one chapter where Ramona's parents get in an argument over something silly because they are tired and she's freaking out because this is clearly going to lead to their entire lives falling apart and how COULD HER MOTHER DARE thwap her very own husband on the hiney with a spatula as she marched out of the kitchen????  (As someone who regularly thwaps her own husband with a spatula on a regular basis, this particular detail had me rolling).  The next morning we find everything patched up between the mister and the missus and Ramona and her sister shocked and furious that their parents aren't perfect and that they make mistakes.
