Today I love cabinet day, not a day when the cabinet is holding a meeting, but rather it is the day when our new cabinets are arriving and starting to be installed. I love that they are as amazing as we thought they would be when we ordered them and I love that we aren’t at all disappointed in our choices. I love that the island will have a top on it that we will be able to use while we wait for the real top that will take two weeks to be cut and brought in with the rest of the counters. I love that, even though we have to wait for some things yet, it’s actually great because we get to spread out the fun over days and weeks as each new part comes together. I love that while the kitchen and the floors have to be done at the same time so that everything is in sync, other upgrades to the house can be done a little at a time. I love that some of those upgrades will be coming in the next few weeks but lots of them will not even be decided on for a good long while. I love that the changes we’re making these days will leave us with lots of rearranging and reordering to do here in the blue castle.
Today I love having a day off of sorts while the cabinets are installed. I love that I get to write and do my radio show for this weekend and though that used to fill my day I feel like it will be a very light day today. I love that I will likely be in and out of the kitchen supervising and just generally being in the way a lot. I love that I cannot stay away from work being done and am always ready to help. I love that I know enough not to just step into a job and start doing it.
Today I love that the next time I make oatmeal it will be on the barbecue, that will be different. I love that we are on a new adventure that will have some interesting twists to it. I love that we may be doing some take out meals soon. I love that we have all kinds of food available in our freezer and fridge and that there are grocery stores open still and while we cannot meet with friends as freely as we used to, we still have good friends. I love that I have no idea what dinner will be tonight but I’m almost to excited to care right now.
Today I love drinking my coffee at a relaxed pace while other people work and I check in on progress every now and then and enjoy things getting done that I’ve been waiting for.
