Hey there! Hi there! Ho there! I’m baaaaaaack!
Vacation was wonderful…11 days of bright, blue skies, temps in the mid-to-high 80′s, NO humidity, NO rain, fantastic food & drink, afternoons lazing in the sun and all the fun and activities to be had at Walt Disney World. Aaaaaahhhhhh…
For this trip I only brought two lenses forcing myself to view the ‘happiest place on earth’ with fresh eyes. When you’ve been as often as we have it is so very easy for all the “magic” to become mundane…a ‘been there, shot that’ sort of thing. Not this time! I photographed whatever looked interesting to me and came home with more than 850 images. How many will be blog worthy? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see.
Life has been even more hectic upon our return late Saturday as we are now in the midst of a kitchen renovation which began early Sunday morning. Since I’m the designated project manager, I’ve been meeting with the contractor and coordinating all the various subs. (As much as hubby and myself love to DIY, this project is a bit too large and complicated for our experienced skill set and once you get the City Inspectors involved – yes, I’m talkin’ permits here – any of the work we’d normally feel comfortable tackling ourselves now has to be performed by a ‘licensed professional’. Huh, go figure. )
That isn’t to say we aren’t having a hand in things. The new design is all mine and we did some of the demo work on Sunday/Monday as well as moved TWO refrigerators (thanks David and Megan!). And once several plumbing pipes are relocated, electrical and central vac runs re-routed, walls constructed, a granite counter extended, custom cabinetry built and installed, and the new refrigerator delivered and installed, trust me, there will be plenty of finish work for us to do.
Hmmmm, I wonder if I can get a discount if I wear my mouse ears??
