Window trim day

Tues May 27 2008

Rich met me out at Home Depot this AM to go pick up some lights for the kitchen. Do you have any idea how awesome it was to shop with someone that knew what they were doing?!?

So I also needed to look at tubs. Rich graciously pulled one down so I could try it out. I didn't have to look for someone wearing orange for a change, too cool...

I left Rich to head back to my place on his own while I carried on with my search for appliances. It's an exhausting choice to sift through. It makes me think there ought to be a company that builds them for you upon spec... "I want that top with that dial with that finish." Too much to ask? Someone really ought to think about that kinda biz!

Later Ben and Vic arrived to add some GORGEOUS wood trim around the windows out back. The windows alone still stun me but add that trim and I don't feel like I'm in Yarrow any longer. What is this place?!?

I also met with Doug to discuss the kitchen cabinets. He plans to draw something up then call me in to go confirm and choose a finish. He had some fabulous ideas on this and that. I have struggled so long on wondering what to do with that room and here comes Doug with paper and pencil and had it figured out in 10 minutes. Nice!

Neighbours Francis and Allison and Gerry snuck in to check out the progress and see what's going on. I LOVE watching expressions when they see the results for the first time knowing how it use to look. And I caught a quick glimpse of Janette too.

Thanks to the team for their continued efforts! The results are no less than stunning.

Ben, I have a GREAT idea! How about we park your rv in my driveway so you get some use out of it? My camping fees are reasonable...
