Shelves for the spice rack. She had to measure and cut each one separately. No two are the same length. A good rule we have learned in this house. Nothing is square. Everything has to be hand pieced. You cut and fit, cut and fit till it fits. Patience is a necessity in this house.
The shelves are finished and dried. We even started painting the wall. The color is Warm Nutmeg. We have so much light in a relatively large kitchen that the color is not oppressive. We both like rich colors. The brown is so warm and cozy.
Finally after a couple of days drying we can add cook books, spices, a pitcher or two. We had a carpenter come out today to give us a quote on a couple of finish projects. The doors have to be re adjusted and some outside work on the soffits. We know our limits and when to ask for help.
We got a chance to attend a Inter Tribal Pow Wow in Newport this past weekend. The music and dancing were great. The weather was warm and beautiful. The dancers were happy and colorful to say the least.
Jasmine had to go home after her summer long visit. She started 1st grade this year in New Jersey. Her Pop Pop and I miss her and so does Alex. Emma and Lucy are at a loss. We are very thankful to be able to keep her with us all summer. She is now snaggle toothed. Great, just in time for school pictures.
We will have another addition to the farm tomorrow. The excitement is in the air. We can't wait. We will update the blog asap. Have a warm and cozy night. Much love and prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm.
