Perfect Yellow


We got the kitchen painted this weekend! YAY! It feels good to get some things scratched off the gigantic list you create when you move into a new place. Rob also hung up our glass doors, put the hardware on the cabinets, and installed cabinets lights. He is not a fan of Ikea right now .... maybe I am not the only one with an Ikea love hate relationship?!



Almost every box that was marked kitchen has been unpacked. It was noted that I have a lot of dishes. It was also noted that I am the one who cooks in the house and all notation stopped after that. Although the kitchen has made HUGE leaps since we moved in I am still not ready to show you the whole thing yet. We still need to do the tile backsplash and the floors. 

 It has been very damp, rainy, and cold here for the past week. The leaves are starting to turn colors. Aries keeps singing her favorite song. Damien is getting a little stir crazy being inside so much. Odyn is very sleepy and has a little cold that won't go away. 


To keep the kids from cabin fever we decided to make cinnamon bread together. The extra bonus was the wonderful smell that filled the house. The sweet smell of cinnamon, the warmth from the stove, and the gloominess outside made us all think of winter. 


So for now I guess I will embrace the rain because it's not snow and keep unpacking.
