The Gratitude Project - Day 2
I've decided that just like when I made my gratitude journal a few years ago, I'm going to space out the big important things for which I'm thankful throughout the month. I mean, it wouldn't be good reading if I started out with all those and then petered out toward the end of the month, right? I'm sure that people will realize if I post that I'm thankful for glitter before I post that I'm thankful for my husband that I'm not saying I think glitter is more important than he is, you know? I just want to try to keep the weight even and the posts interesting.
Not only is it wide enough for my large cooling rack, it's granite too! So much nicer than the old cracked laminate, that's for sure. I am very happy about this, because I just gained another six or seven feet of counter space, if you think about it! Yay!
In most rentals, painting is verboten. I've not only been given permission to paint (remember what I did to my bathroom?), but he's reimbursing us the cost of paint since us doing it meant he didn't have to repaint before we moved in. How's that for an awesome landlord?
It's good, because not only is our kitchen a lovely poop brown color, apparently before it was brown it was magenta. Now, don't get me wrong - I love a nice red wall. If you recall, I had a red wall in my last kitchen. But magenta??? That's not pretty. It's especially not pretty if it was not all covered up and there are streaks of it like this under counters and around the edges of the cabinetry. It wasn't too noticeable with the old bar, but with the new one the magenta is definitely still visible.
