The nursery is waiting on carpet. It is beautiful and I can’t wait to show you some of the details soon.
The demolition has begun on the kitchen and next weekend, the oven and sink are removed. We will move the banquette so the rest of the house will also have some spill over from the kitchen. Next week, the contractor is here to remove a load bearing wall. The kitchen is packed and ready for the demo. My heart, wallet, fears and house will all suffer.. My nerves are hopefully going to be able to survive. I don't do well when the house is upside down. My garden may be my solace.
Tomorrow my summer class starts and so does my preparations for fall classes.
So this week's menu is all about summer, having a kitchen and stopping and smelling the roses. Every dish can be eaten outside by the pool. Grab a bowl or plate and meander outside. Summer is almost here and I plan on relishing every moment of it.
