Soon, Very Soon

Autumn isn't really here and neither is October.   It's still in the upper 90's, some days reaching just a little over 100.   And it's dusty.   So very very dusty.   Everyone is over it.   Over the heat, over the drought, over the weather.   

I'm also over the kitchen remodel because on Tuesday I learned there is a window that wasn't ordered that is a 3-week lead time item.   That holds up the framing which holds up the drywall which holds up everything else.   It also holds up being able to close up the hole that used to be my kitchen ceiling.   Today the plumber will be here and the electrical is supposed to be done.   Other than that, I have no photos to share because everything looks the same as it did last Friday.

Is there any good news?   YES!   I ordered my quartz countertop yesterday and it came in about $700 less than the estimate.   And I also chose my travertine for the floors.   The remaining items are the faucet, backsplash tile, and pulls for the drawers and cabinets.   

Soon, very soon.   


Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by.

I remember those remodel days, not so fondly at all. But, bright side is that when it's over, you will be soooo happy with it all!!! Hang in there for a little while longer...I did a lot of walking and otherwise, just being gone or else I'd be crazy and drive everyone else crazy too. :) Sure hope you get a weather break soon. We weren't as hot or as dry as you all have been, but we were so ready for a change too. Today, we're engulfed in fog with highs predicted about 70, and a bit of rain next week. It feels good for a change. Fingers crossed that it heads down south to your neighborhood!

Yes, soon, very soon. Hang in there--We're sending patient vibes for you, but keeping a few for ourselves, it's not something I'm really good! :-) Take care!!

And I LOVE the photo you took of the eclipse, it was really amazing, wasn't it?

Exciting and happy I am along for the "look and see!"
The waiting and patience becomes quite the task . . .
Good news though, you'll stand back and look at beautiful! Soon, very soon . . .
