BUT I was stricken with a very horrible stomach ailment. I didn't eat for 2.5 days, or do much of anything for that matter.
Then the heavens parted and I felt better. First on the list was painting the kitchen. It will be a while (weeks, months? years?) before we are able to install a tile backsplash like we want, so I decided the next best thing would be to paint it.
When the countertops were replaced, we just pulled off the old backsplash. It's textured with glue and stuff.
First pass was painted two tones: pacific and quarry (darker). Lots of friends came over and gave their advice. In the end, I decided that it is my kitchen and I can do what I like.
So I painted over the lighter pacific. Eventually the backsplash will be a lighter color so it will help the kitchen to be lighter. Let's face it, I have a HUGE kitchen and could paint it all black and it would still look huge.
I also got out the spray paint. Two very 80's brass lamps were blessed with a new persona. They are so much happier now. I only wish I'd taken before pictures.
Meanwhile, Mr. Intensity is loving being spoiled in Kentucky. He lost another tooth this week.
A trip to Bass Pro Shop found him as the new owner of this cross bow. (The other grandparents also spoiled him - with a Lego set - but I don't have pictures of it.)
As if driving nine hours to Kentucky wasn't enough, they decided to drive three more to visit more family in Indiana. In red is Gretchen, one of Hubby's favorite cousins. To her left is Joel, Hubby's brother who lives in Louisville, KY. On the very end in pink is Naomi, who was born on Caroline's birthday...mere minutes before Caroline.
Speaking of cutie Caroline...she helped scout out the new donated cypress boards that will be used for raised beds in our neighborhood's community garden.
That's our week/end. How was yours?
Come play with Mom and Kiddo and tell us all about it.
