25Jun16 – It’s been an exciting week. We are installing our cabinet drawer & cupboard fronts after, get this, 2 (that’s t-w-o) years since we met with our first cabinet maker to build our kitchen cabinets. Now, if that isn’t a lesson in patience, I don’t know what is…………….Ahhh, it’s so exciting to see how beautifully it’s coming out. I just sit at the sitz bank for moments at a time just lost in reverie admiring our kitchen.
We’ve also been saving “rescue Mountain Laurels” and a red maple as well.
Our Fifth Rim Hike of the year was last Saturday. It was a strenuous climb to the top of Potato Knob, but so worth it. The views were spectacular!
So, we continue to be busy, busy, busy. What else is new?!
06JUn16 – Steve’s helping Larry, our cabinet maker, along by going to his shop and bringing back unlacquered cabinet fronts, etc as they’re ready and doing the rest of the work here. It’s helping to speed up this ungodly – long process. Little by little……
There’s a new home site being excavated on the mountain and the word is out that there are mountain laurels for the taking before they get trashed. Why did I think I had the time to transplant 4 of them? Trying to “Save the Laurels” I guess.
Two of 4 holes are dug. Two more to go; moving 2 lilac bushes from where they’re not happy to the two dug holes, and putting in two of the laurels in the lilacs spots, then planting the 2 other laurels in the two ready- to-be-dug holes. If that seems like a mouthful, image getting it done!
