Good morning friends, I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. We worked all day Saturday at the house and then in the morning on Sunday. The afternoon was spent with my brother and his family. My brother and I have not lived in the same place for over 25 years and most of our time spent together in the past was either traveling together in Europe or at “home” for the holidays. It has been a treat to be part of my niece and nephews “everyday life”, going to their birthday parties, spending time at the pool, shopping with my niece for the day or playing croquet at the club.
I am savoring all of the summer fresh fruits and vegetables and have been to the farmers market several times over the past few weeks. I have eaten so many cherries in the last few days I might just turn into one but the season is so short I have to enjoy them while I can. Have you been enjoying summers bounty? What is your favorite fruit or vegetable from the market?
The house is inching along. Over the last month they removed the popcorn ceilings and then painted them. This week the master bedroom suite is getting painted and the carpets will be laid Thursday. Our mattress delivery has been delayed another week, hopefully this is the last delay and by August I will be sleeping in my new bed.
We met with a kitchen designer and have a preliminary design, and will be meeting with another one next week. The news is the same everywhere, delays for cabinets, in some cases 6-8 months and 6-12 months for appliances, everyone is over extended and cannot get workers and both general contractors we spoke to said they are a year out on projects.
Once the master bedroom is finished I can finally unpack our clothes and also move some of the furniture into that side of the house. For those of you that have asked I will put together a post on the house and what we are doing, to put it simply we are basically remodeling the entire house, new bathrooms, expanding the kitchen, new floors, new landscaping, paint, etc but we are not gutting the house to the studs. We are working within the existing footprint and walls, except for the kitchen.
I read this book yesterday and I loved it! It is the perfect book for the beach. Have you any book recommendations? If so please share because I am always looking for something to read.
Have a great day and don’t forget to come back tomorrow and I will share my cherry scone recipe that I made this weekend.
