Close to Nowhere
No kitchen, no floors; but I still have Solitaire
Tuesday afternoon I called home to ask my son, the computer whiz, to check my computer and his sister’s computer for that new “worm” that was supposed to hit PCs with a vengeange on April 1. (I’m writing this on Tuesday afternoon — I really, really hope it’s an April Fool spam...)
Anyway — back to my phone call — I asked Kris to check the computers and he said he would as soon as he could, but he couldn’t right then — seems like Pop and Pop’s friend Chris have torn my floors up.
I thought I was prepared for this. I was supposed to be!
I’ve worked in the kitchen for a while now — taking some cabinets down, repainting and rearranging what’s left, putting new shelves up, etc.
I’m about worn out from going up and down the stepladder. If I were six inches taller, I could have just stretched and saved myself a good bit of arthritic hip pain!
My upper kitchen cabinets look very nice. I’m a bit concerned about the paint color I’ve picked out though.
The cabinets are “muslin” which actually means off-white. I have a border for the walls, with veggies and baskets and stuff that also has some lavender and purples. I matched the lavender I thought perfectly, with, I thought, a very light lavender — kinda white-lavendery.
I’ve taken down one of my cabinets and replaced it with shelves. Before I put the shelves up, I had to paint the wall that was going to be exposed.
The paint is not white-lavendery. It’s deep lavender!
Pop just laughed at it and said he didn’t really care. However, I keep looking at it and thinking — purple?
I can’t get back to work in my kitchen until the floors are finished and my wall is either torn down or left standing. That’s still up in the air — Pop and I just can’t decide. One day it’s staying, the next he says we’ll pull it down.
I guess that’s just going to be a wait-and-see kitchen project.
Tuesday afternoon, as I write this, I’m almost afraid to go home.
Then...I remember my poor ole arthritic hips. I can play Solitaire until the floors are finished!
