When the kitchen was first painted, I worried. Was the yellow too mustard? Did it actually look green in certain lights? I tried to hush the Worrier in My Brain. Lucy had wanted a yellow and white kitchen and my goal was to make it happen.
A few days ago Nick started to put up the cabinets.
Naturally, that made me nervous, too. I’d chosen a line I’d never heard of (Wellborn) and I’d chosen MDF doors for inexpensive practicality. I devoutly hoped this had not been a mistake.
Nick has been working at night. In the early mornings before barn chores, before the men arrive, I walk around and inspect the progress.
I think the cabinets are going to be fine. They don’t look like expensive cabinets because they are not. But they will be great for us.
We are due to move in nine days. There is so much work still to be done on the house, so much choosing, purchasing, and picking up still to be done by me, and I’ve barely started packing our things in the lake house. Can it all really happen in time? Stay tuned.

As of last night, Moxie still had not calved! I’m pulling on my Carhartts and heading down to check on her now.
