Back to the heat...

Well, the monsoons have passed, and we're back to 100+ degree temps. Ugh.

It's so hot outside that I feel exhausted just getting home--because my (paid for) truck has some issues, the air tends to cut off when I'm accelerating really fast until the gears change or going up hill. Which I do most of the way home, getting on the freeway that goes up a hill...

By the time I get home, I'm ready for a nap. But the cool air in my house tends to revive me pretty quickly.

On another more exciting note, my kitchen will finally be finished. After what? three years? Yes, sad to say. But my father-in-law has been doing the finish work, texturing the ceiling and walls, painting the ceiling, walls, *all* the molding, and the doors. And, wow, it looks great.

Although any football connoisseur would think we are Dallas Cowboy fans. Sadly, yes, I chose Navy blue and grey as the color scheme. I'll get pictures next week...but I'm not a football fan, I swear. And there are no stars anywhere in my kitchen. The final touch will be a small round table and chairs for the breakfast nook.

Next task...finish the living room.

It's about 48-50 in the carport. Rain, wind and thunder most of today! Brrrrrr .... could you send me a bit of warmth?

Now don't go and sell your house once all the UFO's are done! You know that you will only start more redecorating in another house ... LOL.

I'm really happy that your are finally getting done so you can enjoy your kitchen again.
