For a number of weeks now it has been mostly me on the farm. Homer was lucky to get work off farm, revamping a kitchen. And then as sometimes happens, a long honey-do list appears that can fill up another week of full time!

The kitchen foundation remains unchanged. Same walls, floors and cabinets. New appliances a few years ago. The cabinets and breakfast nook were repainted. The wrapped Formica was removed from the walls and countertop, and a speckled granite went down. Sink and new faucet. A back splash of subway tiles.

Every thing in the rooms that comprise the kitchen was patched, repaired and painted. There was a bit of plaster that had been damaged and had broken off. A butlers pantry that is now a great looking cabinet. Really beautiful.

The home is located close to where my brother ran a comic book store. It was his own business in a space he rented. For about 6 years he went to this spot, now being converted to a falafel place. Funny how things change.

Homer has returned to get the heavy lifting done (literally) and then I've taken care of the small stuff. Today it is predicted to be in the 50's! So water can be run to all of our holding tanks, making life easier. No wind, rain or snow today either. A chance to make progress and no just maintain status quo.
