Kitchen Update

Today marks the day - I think - of having the least kitchen. The holes for the washing machine drainage and the exhaust hood were punched throught the wall today, and except for the sink, everything else is already cleared out. As soon as the contractor's tools are cleared, the kitchen will be even emptier, but those don't count as kitchen to begin with.

Speaking of the exhaust hood, I just received a phone call from the company from which we ordered it, asking how the delivery went. I'd love to know myself. Their customer service was pre-emptive. It may yet arrive this afternoon. The dishwasher, on the other hand, really did arrive, the first appliance not-destined-to-be-used-until-kitchen-installation to do so (although the kitchen sink arrived last week).

The kitchen is now painted, at least one coat of it, white ceiling, Jasmine White walls, and - in a somewhat necessarily hasty decision - a Peppermint Beach door. I'll post photos of it tomorrow. It's very - vivid; which I wasn't expecting, based on the swatch.

Today's a day off from kitchen! It was so decadent to run errands and not worry about not being in the house!

Being kitchenless would kill me. I would pine away.

Oh, I looked up "Peppermint Beach" paint, and it had a chart with 4 or 5 different shades of PB. Is yours the darker, greener version, or a pale, pastel, seafoamy version?

Re: Survival
We've been cooking on the grill and microwaving, so it's not as if we're unable to prepare food - it just limits our range and style.

It's Peppermint Beach 4, in the middle. I'll post photos today.
