Itchin' to Finish the Kitchen

Hello out there! I hope everyone is getting ready for a fantastic Thanksgiving, and it is my hope that we all give thanks where it is due - to God. Well, the cabinets are back up, and I started tile work last night. You'll have to excuse the dust! We're living in a cloud of it at the moment!

The cabinets seem so far away now!!! I love it!! Well, except that frig, but it will have to stay for awhile.

Here's the tiling I've gotten done so far.

How many days until Thanksgiving???? I need to be tiling!!! Off I go!!!!

Tear down that wall!...and that's just what he did! Gayland told me Friday that he was ready to knock down the kitchen wall and move it over, so he needed me to clean out all the cabinets. Whose stuff was in there??? I KNOW it couldn't all be mine...what I thought was going to be an hour project, turned into about four hours. Here was my kitchen about 4:00 yesterday afternoon:

Yep, that's my trashcan closet laying there in the floor...but by 10:00 last night... Wooohooooo! Can you see where the old tile stopped? That's how much new space I have. I love it!!! Now I have a lot of tiling to do, but that's ok! Oh, can you see the doorway next to the stove? That's the entry to my new pantry!!! I may not be in Heaven, but it's just durn near close!

...So Ashamed of Myself!

I have NOT been a good blogger lately. It seems like I haven't slowed down in months. Come to think of it, I haven't. Maybe that's why it seems that way! We have had so many blessings in our life that I can't even begin to name them all. God loads us up with them every day! This past weekend, we rode in the San Angelo Veteran's Day Parade for our Cowboy Church. We had walkers with a banner, longhorns, horses, llamas, and a float! Talk about a group, now... The weather was beautiful, and we had a few folks come to church Sunday morning just because they saw us in the parade! That's what it's all about. A friend of mine got this picture of me having too much fun!
