kitchen update

So now that the appliance nightmare has been resolved, there has been progress on the kitchen front again!

Look!!!!! Granite!!!!!

The appliance garage:

The island:

This shows the true color of the granite best:

Loving, loving, loving it!

Handles/knobs arrived. Floor tile picked up Saturday. Hopefully both will be being installed later this week!

I have been soooo fortunate with the cabinet, granite and tile folks (and I can’t say enough about my carpenter!) on this project. It makes me sad that the one place I had a hard time with is the one that I’ve dealt with for 20+ years. Oh well, hopefully I won’t be needing any appliances any time soon, anyway.

A blog about blogging

As I type this, I realize five weeks have passed since my last post. That’s not because I don’t have anything going on or anything to say or anything to show you. Jeepers! I’m remodeling my kitchen! I have lots going on, lots to say and lots to show you! Yet, I haven’t posted in five weeks!

The question was posed elsewhere if blogs are becoming a thing of the past. Replaced by simpler means of communication (read: Facebook, Flickr). Part of me believes it is true. A bigger part of me hopes that it is not. I’ve been keeping this blog for ~8 years now. I can come here and go back and read my posts, look at photos, and have many a “oh, ya!” moments. I don’t want that to go away.

What do you think? Do you still blog? If not, do you miss it?
