You all followed me all the way through my big kitchen remodel in Nov/Dec 08 and you let me get all distracted. You let me forget to update you on how it finished up!! Wednesday turned into a difficult day emotionally. I won't go into details, other then to say, things still aren't right with Andrew. On my way home from one of the countless doctors appointments I have been attending, I stopped to pick up the makings for lasagna. My attempt at salvaging the evening. (maybe if I make his favorite meal, we won't have another melt down that night) As I strolled through the store, I passed the flower area. I paused and sigh. Then picked out a lovely punch of tulips for myself.
Later when I was home working on my lasagna and smiling at my flowers, I thought... "hey, I never showed my blog the kitchen". The lighting is horrible in these photos. There isn't much I can do about that. The rom is on the northside of the house will very little natural light. You can see we tiled the backsplash, and made a "display" cabinet for all my lovely Pyrex. I love seeing all those colorfully stacked things lookin' all colorful and lovely in there.
I have my favorite vintage enamel top table sitting on the wall opposite the stove. And above it hangs a mirror that I hope will catch a reflect a little of the light in the other rooms. Oh, I found really cool chairs on the side of the road that are going to look really cool with my table. I just need to find the time to wire wheel the metal and pick out the perfect fabric for the seats. Hmm... I miss free time. Where has it gone this winter? The time where I get to be me... blissfully creating to my heart's content.
I haven't lost hope yet. I know I will find my time again. I know there will be days where there aren't any meltdowns. I know there will be flowers in the garden in the Spring. Doing little things like buying myself some tulips make the days until then a little better.
