To Be or Not To Be

That is the kitchen. Whether to be smaller in the fridge or absent of the cabinet. We got us a small kitchen here, reader. Or a small kitchen space, I suppose, is a more accurate description. I am grateful to be able to re-do the kitchen; it really needed it. But it sure is a challenge to figure out where everything will go and to keep expenses down. In a perfect world, I would have cannibalized the nearby powder room for laundry space and pushed the powder room over nearer the staircase, but alas, money still doesn’t grow on trees, y’all!

Sad kitchen with tiny sink, missing cabinet fronts and tiny, contact paper covered shelf.

Now I have a blank canvas upon which to lay a miniature version of the kitchen of my dreams. Sort of. With walls and soffits removed, I can lay the kitchen out however I want! Not. It is really a struggle to figure out where the appliances will go and still have at least a cabinet and a half for, you know, every pot, pan, plate, cookie sheet, skillet, glass, bowl I own. But perseverance be the name of my game. Winning is what’s up. This. Will. Happen.

For now, appreciate the blank space that is the kitchen to come.

Hello, sweet nothing.
Hello, sweet nothing.

Total blank space. Which happens to be my and Monkey’s current favorite jam. We agree that it does not get old. Ever. I hope I’ll feel the same about my kitchen if’n I ever get one.

Hope you have a good weekend, reader. Think of me whilst you have fun. I’ll be packing.
