Good Things are Worth Waiting For

admin, · Categories: House and Home, House Improvement

Fall is coming and we never got to do anything about one of the projects that we had planned for this summer and that was to update our kitchen cabinets. We planned to either re-stain or paint them and change the hardware but we never got around to it. The reason? The budget simply wasn’t there for that project because aside from soccer, our son joined the concert music band at school which means more expenses. And I do believe that his curricular activities are a priority. So the cabinets will have to wait for next year. I hope we get to do it then.

I love the designs of the cabinetry at ovis online and I think we can incorporate some of it on our planned update. It may not be exactly the same since the cabinets are old and outdated but we’ll try our best to make them nicer. They’re still very usable and the wood used isn’t falling apart yet. The fixes that needs to be done are just cosmetics – easy to update actually but still, it needs money and time.

Keeping my fingers crossed that the project will materialize next year.

My DIY-er Husband

admin, · Categories: DIY, House and Home

Just finished talking to my hubby on the phone. He called me from work to ask for some measurements in the master bathroom. He is going to be doing some fixing on the floor soon so he needed the measurements for the materials that he would be needing.

My hubby is a fixer-upper or better yet a DIY-er. He does all the plumbing here at home and soon he will be doing some carpentry work too. The fixing that needs to be done in the bathroom doesn’t need plumbing but more of carpentry since it has to do with the floor. He has been wanting to do it for a few weeks now but life has just been hectic with us since school started because aside from school, our son is also into soccer as well as the school concert band.

He is looking into doing it this weekend and I am hoping he will not run into problems and the fix would be easy peasy for him.

Good luck, Hubby!

He’s Baking Brownies Again

I am referring to the hubs and this is already for the nth time and I am now drooling. The brownies are not cooked yet. I just know that he is baking again because I am hearing noises in the kitchen right at this very minute while I am writing this including the sound of the electronic hand mixer. The kitchen is close to the master bedroom so even though the TV is loud in the living room, I can still hear him clearly.

I am really getting hungry now thinking about the brownies. We use Hershey’s dark cocoa because we love dark chocolate and it is just delish. And he uses his late mom’s recipe to do it. His mom used to cook the brownies all the time when he was a little boy so baking the brownies certainly makes him nostalgic. Sweet.

Hurry up, Honey! I certainly can’t wait to munch on your super delicious brownies!

Seek and Ye Shall Find…With a Click

I find it funny sometimes how things used to be and how things are now – way convenient and easy to access without having to give much energy to it. Case in point: Searching for something. Before, you had to actually go to stores if you wanted to buy or just check for anything. If you wanted to research, you had to go to the library, and the list goes on. But in this day in age, all you got to do is open the browser in your computer, search online, visit website, and you will have the answers to your questions, or buy what you want or need, etc. And that’s only with your fingers doing the work. Everything is kinda-sorta ‘automatic’, isn’t it?

Yup, just exactly what Miranda Lambert’s song is about. I like that song of hers, ‘Automatic’ and have been singing it over and over again. I am a country-music girl, without a doubt which I believe is something that will not change even if all else changes. :)

Poor Hubby!

He’s got a bug. :(

When he left at 6 o’clock this morning, he was already not feeling well. And when he called me at around 9 o’clock from work, he is already feeling awful. I can actually tell in his voice how bad he is feeling.

I wonder where he got it. He thinks somebody at work must have had it. He wants to come home and just have a rest but he couldn’t. He’s got lots of things to do that need to be done ASAP.

My poor hubby. Hope he gets well quick. I really don’t like seeing him feeling ill. Also, here’s hoping we don’t catch the bug that’s been bugging him. I am keeping my fingers crossed and my shield against the bug, tight. ;)
