the ikea kitchen build (part one)

we're building an ikea kitchen . . . . it is so much fun! seriously it really is!


first. wendy hauls a box off of the big piles of boxes and opens it up.



then she grabs the bag o' bits and sorts them all out.



then she figures out what each panel is, where it goes and how it should go together.

then she screws some of the bits into the panels.

then she hammers some of the bits into the panels.

then she pulls the whole thing together!

checks the diagram to fiind out where there are bits left over annnnnnd to reassure herself that the product of her awesome building skills resembles that suggested in the lovely pics inside the handy dandy ikea guide.

and then she hoists the finished product up onto her shoulder and chucks it onto the great big pile of finished cupboards . . .

moving . . . on . . .




i placed the beautiful old (red-brick, two story, front-and-back porch) house i have lived in for the last three years on the "market" yesterday. 
it has been (and is) a strangely baring experience to let what has been my home transform into something i must say goodbye to.
but i need you to know that i am also deeply excited to feel the strong fingers of the current that is pulling wendy and i along as we will finally get to share a home in east city for a while, and then . . . well, we don't know of course . . . but we know what we hope, and, what we're working towards . . .


the day i bought this house 


yesterday, arriving here with wendy after a day getting the necessary stuff to rebuild the kitchen in our shared home in east city . . .



 i love her. it's as simple as can be!

this is wendy in front of our shared home in east city . . . .
