Good morning. It's early yet, so the sun is not out yet. But, the air is cool and feels good. I've been up since 5:15 am, watching "Christmas In July" on QVC. I enjoy seeing all the fun new things that are available now for holiday entertaining. When I was younger, a lot of these things would have been such fun.
Yesterday was my Michael's and my brother Artie's birthday. They're not here, but I hope they know that I'm thinking of them. I miss them, so my memories of this fun day are very precious to me.
Eddie and Kevin came by yesterday afternoon to start work on my kitchen. They will be back this morning to finish up the job. After they left last evening, I went to turn on the kitchen light, and guess what? No light. No big deal as there is a light over the sink so it's not really too dark.
Next, I went to cook supper in the microwave for Pogo and me. Oops! No microwave either. Until Eddie gets the new outlets in, there is no electricity in most of the kitchen. Finally, I got out a long heavy duty extension cord and plugged it in out in the laundry room and ran it into my kitchen. Now I can use the microwave, or whatever else requires electricity.
Eddie removed the stove top from the cabinet, and replaced it with a beautiful new countertop. (I don't have a regular stove. It's stove top on top of a base cabinet.) Plus he is building two slide-out drawers inside the cabinet. This will make it easier for me to get at the pots and pans. Here's a picture of the base cabinet. Mine is much darker.
It will be so nice to be able to reach all of pans without crawling around in the bottom of the cabinet to find something. It will also be great to finally have a nice countertop with outlets and room for my oven. I usually have to do all my baking in the stove out in the kitchen (in the main house). Now I'll be able to bake in my own oven. Woo Hoo.
Today I have more photos of some of the lilies in our garden. They are just so beautiful. Gosh, it would be wonderful if they bloomed all summer long. Ah well, we are enjoying them while they bloom.
God willing and I'm not sick, I would like to get more plants for the garden, and maybe build a patio of sorts with a gazebo so that it would be comfortable to sit out there. We'll see. This year I lost all of the Spring, so I'm getting a late start on the yard projects.
One of the things I did do was to order a large deck box to put the outdoor chair and bench cushions in. Now I won't have to be bringing the cushions in the house at night and taking them back out the next day. Here's an image of the deck box (taken from the web).
Well, I think it's time for me to get busy and do a few things before Eddie gets here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
