Hot. Muggy. Sticky. Oppressive. We aren't supposed to have weather like this up here. What's goin' on, folks?
Doesn't do any good to complain and the high temps aren't going to kill us so why be grumpy and grouchy about it? Just keep drinking lots of liquids and be thankful for a refreshing shower at the end of the day.
Good progress today. Papa Pea started on the built-in storage unit that will go behind the door in the pantry. I worked on making room in various nooks and crannies of the house in which to store the scads of boxed up books and the contents of various cabinets and storage areas that are going to be torn out and/or moved in the next step which will hopefully start tomorrow.
B, our carpenter/friend, was here to put the top and doors on the pantry cabinets.
Here's the beginning of the tops being fitted.
Viola! Counter tops on and B installing doors.
There it is! All done except Mama Pea forgot to get the knobs for the doors when in the big city last time. Duh. (It wasn't the only thing I forgot. Brain on overload.)
I had B make the doors just like the units she built for us fifteen years ago in the kitchen/living room area. I just love the look of them.
The cabinets in the pantry are now ready to be stuffed with miscellaneous things I have to empty out of the kitchen/living room area so we can start on the remodeling of it.
Tomorrow we want to get all the wall shelves up in the pantry and start on the kitchen/living room demolition. Wish us luck . . . and some cooler weather, please!
The train to Looneyville is picking up speed.
