Day ??? I Lost Track

These are the reasons I am using for not getting things put away in the kitchen. They aren't the real reason though! I think I am coming down with something. Yuk! I don't want to be sick. I have a touch of a sore throat and just feel like crap. So today I worked on my newest socks.

Crystal, Mike and the kiddos came out yesterday. Mike did some touch ups and installed a soap dispenser on my utility sink. Little Big Man was supposed to be taking a nap but he proved to his parents that he is a big boy now and climbed out of the crib! I swear I tried not to laugh. Miss Clella is growing too fast. She responds when you talk to her with that precious smile. Then Dee, Vern and Taylor came out for dinner--thanks again Mike & Crys for the pizza. It was great to have a house full of happy people.

The new sink came in this box and I knew it would be a great new toy. I was right, nothing better than a big box to climb in, on and under. We thought maybe the dogs would leave Clella alone if we layed her down in the box but it wasn't the dogs we needed to worry about! She didn't like it for long so I HAD to hold her for a while.

Here are my new socks. I got the yarn quite a while ago and started them before my surgery. I hate doing the ribbing and the first one isn't as nice as the second one but they are mine and I'm not going to let that bother me. I am working on both socks so I don't get too lost with my yarn pattern. And the fact that I will have them both done instead of just one sock. (Not naming names but there is this one lady I met with a monster stack of single socks. She doesn't like to get bored working on one pair at a time. If I did that, I'd have a huge stack of single socks and no pair to wear!)

The last picture is for Sissy Sue. She had surgery on Monday and now she is home recouping and surfing the web and needed an update. Update for today is a couple more boxes empty, a few more to go.

I haven't comeplety made up my mind about the backsplash. I thought it was made up, I bought the tile and the grout, then Crys came up with another idea. She thinks painted bead board will make a nice backsplash. We even picked out the colors. Now I don't know what I want so I am going to live with it for a few more days. If you click on the picture, you can see the tile on the left of the stove. What do you think???

Gotta go, I'm hoping to get the the toe section tonight.

Thank you for the update Luv! Okay, my two cents on the tile vs. paint. Sister the tile is pretty plain. You are not a plain tile kind of person. Nuff said? That's just my thought, but in truth except that you are going to live there until they plant you, the tile would be a good way to go for it's salability factor.

Love you!!

go for the tile. painted stuff does not have a scrubability factor at all... tile will last forever- it's the most durable product out there. Are you going to put crown molding up above? You should =)

Judy, it has been fun watching your kitchen take shape. Go with the tile. Also, thanks for the pics of Elliot and Clella that you post. We are looking forward to seeing them in May.
