Good morning! It's week two on the kitchen update. It's been pretty painless. Eric Dennett, our contractor, is probably the tidiest person ever known to work on a house. We've had him here before, and so I already knew this. I could only wish we were that tidy. The countertops and appliances were removed and there' s not a spec of debris anywhere.
I can't even complain too much about the inconvenience. Well honestly, I could because I'm a professional complainer but it's not that bad. Coffee is in the main bathroom in the hall. My inexpensive Mr. Coffee has a timer, so for the first time in many years I set my coffee up at night and when I wake up fresh hot coffee is waiting. Not as delicious as a cup brewed in a French press pot, but still, pretty good. That's the taste of convenience. I can stay in the back of the house and mind my own beeswax while Eric does his thing. Quietly, and very politely.
Still it's weird to have someone else in the house during the day. I find it hard to concentrate. I head off to my retreat the second weekend in March, and so I've tried to focus on cutting myself a quilt kit. I'm not good a focusing in a group so cutting stuff out before hand is a must. Of course I won't get near the amount of stuff done as anyone else, but I need something to do! This will be something for me and I'll tell you all about it later. In detail. Every. Boring. Detail.
Ok my friends! I'm headed into a busy day of walking around the back of my house drinking coffee and pretending I'm busy. Hope you have a good week! If you feel so inclined, tell me what you're working on.
Oh wait! Did you see all the QuiltCon postings on IG and Facebook? What did you think? Also, did you check in with Pat and Jane, another Splendid Sampler block is available! Melissa Corey is the designer of the third block, Lots of Love. Check it out!
Alrighty, time to move it along! That coffee won't drink itself! xo
