Happy St Patrick's Day! I hope you all had a lovely day. Our day was busy but not as productive as I had hoped. Par for the course in a large project. V reassured me by saying that "Sometimes, when you want to climb the mountain, you have to lay the roadbed first". A nice way of saying that I need to be patient.
But, I did take advantage of the absolutely gorgeous weather- cloudy and breezy but 70!! I took a walk outside to see what I could find. The day lilies we planted last fall are coming up.
But, you really want to hear about the kitchen, don't you. I know it is what is consuming my life at the moment. I didn't get any tiling done today. The island was being uncooperative with placement.
But we got it in with some fussing to get the stove in the correct place under the range hood.
The counter is only dry fit at this point and we will need to move the stove again as we are planning to tile under it. But here is the basic effect.
We finally got the island anchored in the right place. We were hoping to get the tile backer down but gave up for the night and decided to have some wine instead.
Tomorrow- the tile backer will finally go down and we will start on the final phase of the remodel. And it will only be Friday. We've done pretty good work for a week.
I'm also planning to finally start my tomatoes and peppers this weekend. Spring is on the way!! Hoorah! I'm also hoping to have enough time while the weather is cooperating to finish cleaning out the garden but we'll see how it goes.
