Weekend Home Improvements
Michael spent the weekend working on our kitchen. Here you can see that our spice drawers to the left of the stove have now been completed! I can't tell you how excited I am about this. We started renovating the kitchen about 3 years ago. This project has been a huge undertaking, and we are about 80% complete. I guess it has been about a year since Michael has worked on the kitchen. There have been so many other things pulling at his time. (Farm work and building a business are just a few of the latest)! He also finished the tile in the kitchen. When he laid the tile, he did not put it under the stove or the refrigerator. He didn't want to move the appliances on to the freshly laid tile in the kitchen. We were going to wait about a month and come back to finish the job. Well a little over a year has gone by so he decided it was time. Wow, what a difference it makes having the tile under the appliances. He also replaced a broken part on our dishwasher, and it is amazing how much better that cleans. He glued up some more cabinet panels so they will be ready to install as soon as he gets the time. (Lord willing it won't be another year)!! As soon as he installs the new panels, I will start putting on the finish.
We also moved our chickens into the collard green and lettuce bed. They do a fantastic job of cleaning up a garden bed for the next growing season. I am hoping that they will have eaten much of the bug larvae and that we will enjoy less bugs in our garden. Our chickens are laying about a dozen eggs a day now! Yesterday our son gathered 14 eggs so I guess they are happy with their new "home improvements" as well.
grace and peace,
