It's been awhile.
My daughter and I booked a flight with 1 day's notice, but we didn't get to see him before he passed.
Since we knew that evening he was going quickly, my sister held the phone up to his ear, I told him I loved him and that I'd see him in heaven.

Yes, there were lots of tears getting those few words out.
Traveling was difficult and I was glad to have my daughter help me through the airport because I couldn't have made it without her. My body just wasn't ready to travel. Mr. DIY flew out a few days later.
I was relieved that I was able to have energy and brain power to make it to the end of the week and I've been trying to recover since I arrived home.
I haven't gotten any projects done and we're still in the middle of our kitchen reno at our Mountain Cottage.
We're at the Mountain Cottage this weekend trying to prep the sink base for the farmhouse sink.
Farmhouse sinks are always trouble.
I've had them installed in kitchens I've designed and every one of them is a challenge.
Ours hasn't been any different.
But, Farmhouse sinks look so good and add so much to a cottage kitchen, that they are definitely worth the extra effort and headache ...and the 2 extra trips to the big box store for unforseen oops and I forgot about that occurences!
Still, I've had to stay one step ahead of picking out the details.
I found the apron front sink at Signaturehardware.com. I purchased the sink way back before I ordered the cabinets.
The faucet is Cassidy from Delta in the chrome finish. I ordered it online at Lowes.com
Last week we picked up some classic white subway tile and white grout. We picked this up at Lowe's.
I like Amerock's traditional drawer pull, but haven't decided where to get them or what knob I want.
You can see our original plans, including the layout and the appliances we purchased 2 years ago HERE.
The kitchen reno is coming along slowwwwwly, but we're making progress.
I'm really loving everything we've done, especially the Plank Ceiling (our last project)
and, of course, our Vintage Style Pantry.
Hope you are having a good weekend.
