We have been hit by a big winter storm here in OKC so Jimmee and I are getting an unexpected break from work/school. Although I’m feeling a little under the weather, we still managed to get some work done on the backsplash and other things in the kitchen.
I haven’t been going outside because it’s too cold for me and my sore throat, but our animals have enjoyed playing out in the snow (until they start shivering and want back inside). This is what it looked like when I opened the back door yesterday morning.
Here are some photos from the front…
Also, I took a few photos of the backsplash from when we worked on it this weekend and then some from yesterday. We had to stop working on it because we ran out of boxes of tile, but we’re going to try to get the whole thing squared away this weekend.
Yesterday we were able to start the other side of the backsplash and add more height to the side by the sink. The range hood is also about half-way up, but we are going to have to take it down when we tile behind it. It will be pretty easy to take the bottom part down again since there are just two screws holding the whole thing up. Jimmee also cut the baseboards to size, but we haven’t actually attached them to the legs yet. It’s really easy to attach them so it will just take a second today to do that part.
I’m really loving these snow days (but not this horrible sore throat!). I’m thinking that we’ll go back to school tomorrow since I haven’t gotten an e-mail saying that it’s cancelled, but it’s been a really wonderful break. Hope you all are staying warm and safe!
