Not a single stitch sewn today but I did knit a little.
While we’re not going to start the actual kitchen remodel until October, we’re trying to finalize the layout before we leave for Big Canoe so the cabinets can be built. I spent a great deal of time today trying to rework the kitchen because we can’t find a fridge that fits in the current space. This is the old design and we’re looking at moving the fridge to where the pantry is (#24) and moving the pantry to where the fridge is in this drawing. You can’t really see it in the drawing but there’s a doorway between the two sections that dictates how big the fridge can be.
I’m still fight this crud although I’m anti-antibiotics as I told the Doctor yesterday during a routine appt. She made me promise I’d call if not well in another two weeks or if I start to get worse again. I’m ramping up my walking again but it’s hard with the heat and not feeling up to par. My goal is 11,500 steps per day which requires that I get a walk in that is about 4-5 miles as I don’t get many steps around the house. Earlier this week I did 3.5 miles as I started back on the daily walks and as a result didn’t hit goal. Overall, I’m not unhappy with the week’s results but that’s making an allowance for being sick.
We’re getting ready for Big Canoe so that means some shopping. It’s a fairly remote area with Walmart about 20 minutes away and Marietta, an Atlanta suburb about an hour’s drive. We needed a new vacuum, a set of sheets, a pitcher for sangria, some batting and thread, etc … It’s all in piles waiting to be packed in the car.
Rae attended her first ballet class today. She’s very excited and demonstrated some dancing for us but Keith thinks she might be more suited to gymnastics. She’s got a lot of energy and is not really a dainty kind of girl – just like her Gram! We can’t wait to see all the kids and are looking forward to being in GA a month and having multiple opportunities to spend time with them.
PS – I’m making progress assembling the hourglass top but at this rate I’ll drag it out all week!!
