This kitchen is divisible only by itself and one.

Because, you see, it has been primed. (Math geek joke. I'm not one, but I live with one.)


The dogs are totally clued in to the fact that something unusual is going on. People were here all day and dogs weren't allowed inside. That's just wrong. And there's plastic sheeting blocking their usual kitchen entry point.

See the wavy ornamental trim bits above the refrigerator hole and the dog buffet counter? Those are going away. Our contractor has made replacement pieces for those areas so the lines will be nice and clean like I want 'em.

Tomorrow night it won't look much different. They will finish priming, and do some caulking and sealing. Doors and drawers have been taken off-site for similar treatment. The actual painting will happen Wednesday.

Granite guys came to make templates for the new countertops and windowsills today, too -- a day earlier than expected. That's encouraging. Still no promises about when granite will be installed, though. (I'd be very pleased with Friday... I'm just sayin'.)

Regardless, it's good to see the work happening!

That joke made me laugh.out.loud.

Good luck on the granite. Every time we've looked into it we've been told our kitchen would be counter-less/sink-less for about a month. EEK!

Does this mean you're eating out for the duration??

No way. We need to save the dining-out money to pay for the kitchen! Instead, we have our microwave and coffee pot on the counter in the guest bathroom. It's getting us by.
