Random on a Sunday

I am pretty miserable today so I'll make this brief. I have nothing planned for a post today because I spent about 8 hours yesterday getting everything out of my old kitchen, then tore everything that was left in it out (with help...thanks Jeff!!). Photos to come eventually on my kitchen blog. It was hard work and every muscle in my body is aching. My left eye is killing me (?? something must have landed in it yesterday), and from carrying out loads and loads of garbage onto the driveway in the pouring rain, I am now getting a cold. It gets worse. This is now my kitchen for the next 4 weeks.


I don't want to bring everyone down with me so here are a couple of random photos I took around the yard the other day. As much as I hate the fact that fall means winter is on it's way, it makes for some pretty photos.



To continue the randomness, I thought I would include this adorable photo of Pugley, my former cat. My younger sister Jen now owns him. He's the grumpiest cat in the world and I love him. Jen loves him more because he lets her touch him. :P


And that is my random Sunday. Hope you all have a great random Sunday.

Pugley is so cute, I love big fluffy cats, my cat monty is really grumpy too, he only get us stroke him when he's in a good mood!

Four weeks will fly! And look, how handy! The sofa is right there ~ you can sit while using your salad spinner.
All kidding aside, this temporary set-up will make for an even more striking comparison when your beauty of a kitchen is complete. Olé!
May you be feeling better soonly.
p.s. I vote for grey floors.

Ah so many things in common. I also live with and love the grumpiest cat in the world (perhaps Pugley could be the grumpiest cat on the American continent and Millie could be the grumpiest cat in Europe?). I've also had a miserable Sunday. And I'm also doing a kitchen renovation - although I'm supervising my London kitchen renovation from Ireland. I have nightmares about paint colours and cabinet doors.

Sending you eucalyptus air to feel better -soon.

I don't envy you the reno process,but it is making me have little twinges about another kitchen to plan. I can see that's why people have a 2nd or 3rd or so child. We forget the bad parts and just think of the joy of creation. I think you did a great job on appliance choices. I have a F&P cooktop and it's a workhorse.

amr, LOL - who knew how handy it would be to make dinner WHILE sitting on the couch?

OMG siobhan, I can't imagine dealing with a kitchen renovation from another country. That would give me nightmares too.

white, grey, white, grey...AAAGGGHHH!!!

maureen, I think the joy of the reno ended as soon as I started having to do manual labour. Shoppping was fun, demo not so much. I am anxious to get my new appliances - glad to hear you love your F&P cooktop. Hoping my fridge of theirs rocks.

Is that a raccoon in your temporary kitchen? That is bad.

Poor Kim! I've seen the photos so I know how much work you did. Take away sounds like a good option for dinner or bowls of breakfast cereal :)

Pugley is WAY too cute. Like, WAYYYYY too cute. I want to squish him SO badly right now. Where's my cat when I need her? Probably under the kitchen sink...

You have such a gorgeous blog--really delicious eye candy! And I feel your remodel pain. I've been there and will be going there again soon.

pugley really isn't that grumpy at all. he is the sweetest cat, he just has some random vendetta against kim and jeff. awesome pic! that one, along with the others kim took will be matted and framed for my front hall.

Anon, the raccoon is one of my cats, Cheeks. And thanks everyone else! Sam, as much as I too want to squish Pugley, he HATES that...from me anyway.

My contractor just called, he will be starting tomorrow morning. YAHOO! And my cabinets are arriving in Toronto tomorrow so another YAHOO!

Jen, HE IS SO GRUMPY! And not just to Jeff and I. But I think alot of it is I smell like 6 other cats and Jeff used to egg him on. He's lucky he's so photogenic because I can fogive him for being a little prick. :)

at least your new kitchen has a view. :-) Just remember, you can get through anything if it is temporary.

Hopefully those 4 weeks will pass very quickly for you! I love the photos from your yard and of your sis' grumpy cat. Too cute. Hope you feel better soon!

great photo's!
hope your eye is feeling better, but in the meantime -
that's one pretty snazzy make-do kitchen, Mrs!
you might find that because of it's compactness, and because it has been pared down to the essentials, you're able to be super efficient?!
