I'm well aware it's been a month....

Sorry, I have no excuses. Well I do, but I won't waste my breath!

Summer has finally arrived, we haven't seen rain in weeks! The clothes are drying nicely on the line and the garden has finally started to grow. My mom and stepdad were here for three weeks, and they didn't do any relaxing, all they want to do is work. It was exhausting just watching them. They arrived on Friday night and we spent Sunday at Rona getting supplies. Those crazy kids worked their butts off and had our kitchen remodelled in days! First the old view...


Yucky, dingy and dreary.

And the new view...
Bright, airy and shiny! We originally wanted to restain, but the laminate was too thin to work with and we had some damaged spots that needed lots of sanding. So we went with a light grey in a melamine paint, and new handles, and Mel and Tom found this dark grey tile for the backsplash. It looks stunning! Here are some of the hard workers, Mr Cherries;


Mr Rona,




They also built me a new platform for standing on when I hang my laundry, so I don't have to balance on wobbly lawn furniture anymore. It even has a pedestal for my laundry basket;)

Mr Rona is enjoying a nice summer off work to due knee surgery that couldn't have come at better time! What a lucky guy. It's no fun being the breadwinner that's for sure.

And lastly some FO's that were finished earlier in the summer.

Nice picture of me. Not very flattering. They did an awsome job on the kitchen, and I tried to help out with what I could.
