Spring Fever: Take 2

April 18, 2008

Laura’s Blog Entry

As promised, the kitchen corner.

Before:

A mess that I’m not a-used to. It was driving me crazy. Probably because of the nearby basket of hats and scarves. Winter coats are currently in the washer, soon to be packed away. Good riddance. Can’t stand seeing that stuff in April.

I also took down Mari’s little magnetic calendar that is really more of a preschool thing. And the calendar from the Chinese place that is four feet long. Who needs a four-foot calendar explaining your birth year animal? Mari does, apparently. It is hearby banished to the basement.

Now, for your viewing pleasure, or at least your lukewarm interest, the after:

When four hooks were good, twelve hooks are better! They look especially nice with nothing hanging on them. That’s the tricky thing about hooks. But since we only have a few tiny closets, we will have to hang things on them.

The day I say, “Goodbye!” to the stenciled walls of this kitchen will be one of the happiest days of my life. There is no point in painting in there – the whole thing needs to be gutted. Any work I do now will just get disturbed by new wiring, etc. that will be happening… someday… in the far, far future.

“Dream on… dream on…”
