New in the Kitchen

While I sit here next to the fireplace, working on the Handmade Body Care booklet I’ve promised you and waiting for the furnace repair man to come, I thought I’d show you a few photos from this morning. We had an eventful week as a team of men came and laid down the most beautiful Marmoleum floor in our kitchen, the color of water. Another team of very generous and helpful men came to move an impossibly heavy butcher block from Scott’s childhood home into our kitchen. We scurried to finish painting while the appliances were scattered all around the house and this kitchen is another few steps closer to feeling just like home.

The last bit of stolen sweetness that has been sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks is finally draining on the counter top. Scott’s off for a day of clamming/crabbing/fishing with friends, the kids are in school and daycare. All’s quiet and cold. I hope to be back very soon to share news of a finished booklet for you!

    Doesn’t it feel good to have things as you want them? Your new kitchen looks amazing. It looks like your bees did a good job this year, too. Can’t wait for your skin care booklet.

      His parents bought it when he was about 14 or 15. For thirty years they all cooked together around that butcher block, it is very special that we were able to bring it into our kitchen!

    The kitchen looks beautiful! I’m excited for the Body Care booklet – I’m planning on using some of your recipes for Christmas this year, and can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with!
