Amy wanted to see a picture of the new kitchen island. So, here it is. I am still crazy about it. I have re-evaluated my hatred of the black and white tile. It’s not so bad…now. I think I will paint the kitchen and maybe tile the backsplash and then just live with the floor. I can do the painting and the tilework, so it should be a pretty cheap fix and I think I will love my kitchen. (well, i already love it, i would just love it more)
In non-kitchen news, I received my spinning wheel yesterday. I staked out the front porch by sitting in the dining room playing on the computer while waiting on dinner to finish cooking. I turned on all of the lights in the front of the house and on the front porch. he UPS man arrived at 6:08 or so. I had the door open adn my arms out before he got up the steps! I told him how happy I was that he delivered my spinning wheel….he just grinned….he had no idea what I was talking about!! Anyway, after dinner me and the girls put the beast together. It wasn’t too bad, it took about an hour. I am pretty sure that it would not have taken so long had I not had so much help. The girls treadled before I gave them baths and put them to bed. They are really thrilled with the thing. After they went to bed I stayed up trying to make yarn. Notice…there are no yarn pictures. I think I am going to have to practice a lot. Spinning is not as intuitive as it looks! Oh well, here’s a picture of my new baby. Not sure if she will have a name or not.
