I've gotta new gratitude!

I was thankful for unemployment today.  If I had had to work, I wouldn't have been able to help my husband lay the backsplash tiles, which took us from morning to night. It was actually fun and - who knew? - I'm pretty damn good at it, too!  (New career, perhaps?!?) Tomorrow morning, it will take only a few hours to grout it (no longer than the Macy's parade), then I'll be whipping up stuffing and sweet potatoes for dinner at Grandma's.
 Did I mention the fridge is in and running, too?  (A small cabinet will be installed above it.)

It's just beautiful BG! You did a great job designing all the colors and finishes. Enjoy this day with all the new "toys". Happy Thanksgiving from us in Houston.

I love the bookshelves! My cookbooks are still packed away along with 100 other boxes of books that have no home in our new house (old house had a giant library, new house, none). My helpful hubby labeled all the boxes "books" and not "cook books" or "Kim's stupid novels" or "garden books" or whatever, so I cannot find anything. Whole kitchen is fab.
