Hard to motivate when things work so well

We are having a bit of hard time getting motivated to make the molds for the concrete counter tops. Why? Well, I know it sounds silly, but the kitchen is so functional. It was go, go, go time for so long that Colin really needed a break to do fun things. Even though the plywood counters work, I do think it is time for an up-grade. Maybe this weekend we will start on the molds.

Privacy at last

We finally got some blinds for the big window in the kitchen. This means I don't have to get fully dressed just to leave my bedroom anymore. Which is nice, because getting dressed when you are sick is not a fun thing.

They are up-down, down-up blinds. Yay.

The new favorite spot in the house

This is my new favorite place to sit in the house. I love sitting at the new bar. The light in the kitchen is so inviting and if someone else is in the kitchen making a snack (Colin), then we can still interact with each other without getting in the others way. 

Colin got a tool chest for his birthday so hopefully we will get the Hoosier cleaned out soon so that we can have a less cluttered dinning room. And yes, that is my step stool tucked in by the stove. I'm a shorty so all the upper cabinets are out of reach without it.

Magic Spices- no, not those kind

Here are my magic spices that if you didn't know my magnetic paint secret you might think they were the coolest thing ever. Actually even knowing the secret they are the coolest thing ever. The only problem is that the paint is not strong enough to hold some of the heavier spices. The heavier ones we put on the hood.

Am I a slacker or what?

So sorry I have not written in so long. My health issues sort of took over my every waking moment. But I will try to be a bit better and not leave you hanging for two months. So because I am still lazy  sick, I am going to post some pictures of my mom's lovely spring table. The flowers on the table are from my garden. Yay for spring.
