Kitchen Update

Handles

Greg has installed nearly all the handles we picked out at IKEA.  I love them.  They add a real finishing touch to the cabinetry.  This weekend, he’ll finish that up.  My mother-in-law and I will probably finish the painting.  I will clean everything within an inch of its life and — floor or no floor — we’re moving back in.  My family is so done with eating out that it isn’t even funny.

The only thing I’ll be missing is my morning visit to our local coffee shop.  Jenna Sue’s has become our regular breakfast place — me and the kids.  We leave the house extra early.  I get a “triple mocha, non-fat, no whip” with either a mixed berry scone or a cranberry muffin.  Ruthie gets a toasted bagel with butter and sometimes strawberry jam if she’s feeling wild.  Gage gets a morning bun or a piece of their amazing coffee cake.  I hate to think what all this eating out has done to our budget but the reception and greetings we get there every morning are so worth it.  Still, even in the mornings, I’ll be okay with skipping the amazing mocha that someone else made me and the friendly welcome I get there in order to get a little extra time and my own kitchen back.  I can still go to Jenna Sue’s on the mornings I go in early for staff meetings!  Once a week ought to give me that small town time I crave!

And, I make a pretty mean triple mocha, nonfat, no whip myself!

    Yes i agree with you… The handles looks simple and very nice, i also like the color green the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy. Job well done!

    How exciting Liza!! Can’t wait to see you all moved back into the new, beautiful kitchen. I am sure Jenna Sue will understand. :c)

    The handles look great! I remember when Roger and I remodeled our kitchen how putting the handles on added a beautiful finishing touch.

    So, at Jenna Sue’s do they serve bagels from the Bagelry? Yum. I miss their sesame bagels.

    Sounds like Jena Sue’s needs to become a Weekend Morning tradition. Saturday or Sunday. You pick. Hee.

    It’s looking amazing–congrats!!
