A Wee Bit More Progress

We didn't manage to finish the insulating of the pantry ceiling today, but we got close. Rain added that little bit of a challenge to our efforts again. More cutting in the garage and running to the pantry and back.

The hole you see in front of hubby on the ladder is where the one window in the pantry will go. The hole in the ceiling behind him isn't really a hole; it's a skylight which will bring a smidge of natural light into the pantry.

He got a little more done after I took this picture. Doesn't it look nice and sunny outside the cut out for the window? Yup, just as I went in to fix dinner, the sun came out and it was lovely for about 15 minutes. Then the fog and grayness rolled back in. Talk about a teaser.

I'm hoping for some nice weather tomorrow because I think our first strawberry picking of the season is ready. Yahoo!

That is going to be SOME pantry. I'll bet that for a while, whenever you go missing, you'll be found just basking in the glow of your fabulous new pantry :)

Does hubby make house calls? I could sure use a pantry like that :)

So exciting! I love the idea of a window and skylight in there, I probably would put a deadbolt in there and lock myself in from the kids!

Hey, Jen - You know, that will probably be the truth! What I'm half afraid of is that when the time comes to fill it, I'll do so and not have enough room for everything I've dreamed of having so handy in there for years and years!!

Hi, Fiona - Hey, you've got your own handy husband! Mine has a list so long he may never get to leave the house!

Hey, Erin - Let's see . . . do you think I could possibly fit a comfy chair in there for hours of uninterrupted, quiet reading???
