kitchen: the floor finished

More progress on the kitchen today.


We got the new floor! It's a nice sheet of vinyl - nothing fancy, but that was the point. Since the kitchen is so small, we wanted to keep it as bright and big as possible. We ruled out vinyl that looked like stone, wood or tiles - why not just use the real thing? - and went for something easy to clean. It's nondescript, but in a good way.


Those with eagle eyes may also have noticed that we got a new dishwasher. Our old dishwasher stopped working after our cycling trip (unrelated to the kitchen remodel - just a coincidence.) We held out as long as we could, but it became more and more evident that it was not going to fix itself. Ah, dishwasher, how we have missed you...

Speaking of missing things (sniff!) I got nostalgic and homesick for Thanksgiving today. I miss my family in California. Boo. It was nice to see them on the webcam - hurray, technology! - but I decided that being surrounded by friends and food was what I needed.


So I sent out an email and bought a turkey on my way home from work. We'll have our feast on Saturday. Gobble gobble!
