Sound of Silence

Listen... do you hear that?? It's the sound of rain and.... silence!! Yes it's that time of year again, back to school. don't get me wrong I love my boys however some days I love them more when they are not fighting with each other, the dog, me and generally everything around them. Or asking to eat every 20 mintues.

It's exciting to hear about their day, see what they have done and help them lear new things. But... ahhh the silence. :)

our Kitchen redo.

When we moved into this house a few years ago, thankfully everything was painted tolerable colors and we could re do rooms as time, and money, permitted. We finally got around to the kitchen. However we still need some stuff done that money didn't permit like a new stove and floor. I am pretty sure there is some water damage by the sliding door and that is just going to have to wait so the tiles stayed. My wonderful parents came up and spent several days helping me do this project and acting as interior decorator and electrician as needed. Add to the fact we were working in here when the earthquake hit, it all added up to alot of memories.

Here is the countertop and a snip it of the brick wall and green wall paint
