Mountain in Hiding

We have had yet another storm this afternoon, constant rain, and no sign of the mountain.

This afternoon I stood on my back veranda and took a couple of very uninspiring photos, basically to mark the day as being a bit of a dud, weather wise. I know the garden is lapping up every luscious raindrop though, after being parched for the last few weeks. We are coming into our rainy season, so I suppose I will have to get used to the idea of more rain over the coming months. This time last year we were in the midst of a drought, so this year is a definite improvement. I can cope with the occasional grey photo day – rain is precious.

Today I emptied out some kitchen cupboards, and when husband arrived home we began dismantling the kitchen. It’s the original kitchen from when we built the house in 1994, so it has served us well. Now though, it’s time for a change.

Here is a before photo –

I forgot to take a photo before I emptied the cupboards, but never mind. I have plenty of photos taken in the kitchen over the years to look back on.

After husband removed a few cupboards, this is what we have now –

I can still cook meals on the cooktop, but hopefully – maybe – fingers crossed – I’ll have my new range installed by next week. I think the next job is to repair and paint the wall where the cupboards were removed. I’ll add more photos as the work progresses. 🙂

    1. We are doing most of the work ourselves because the cupboards are in good condition and I just want a new door colour. I’m tired of the wood. Where the range is going though the cupboards need some rearranging. Luckily my husband is good at this kind of work. 😊


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
