The kitchen is outdated, but it is clean and functional. To hold us over until we decide to embark on updating it, we are just going to remove the paper and paint it. It will be fine for a year or two in this shape.
The L-shape is interesting, but going from a closet sized kitchen to this is going to be wonderful! Brian and will be able to cook together comfortably.(the kitchen nook)

Brian and I got up early to meet a landscaper over at the house to discuss clearing the land in the back of the house to make a yard. At first glace it doesn't look like it would be that much of a deal, but after going around and marking trees to be cut down you realize that it is a couple days of full work from a complete crew and a couple of bobcats.
The surveyor will be out the begining of this week to mark our property. We don't intend on clearing the entire property in the back of the house to make the yard, but it will be nice to know exactly where ours begins and ends. It hasn't been surveyed since 1968. I guess the one owner that had it already knew, so there was no need.(looking back at the house 1/2 in the east lot)

Jayne, Brian and I went out for wine and cheese. I think I will start calling it fika! There was a slight breeze in the air that made it seem like spring. We sipped red wine, ate goat cheese and laughter. After we cleaned the plate we headed to The Go Bar for a little karaoke and YES I did sing. I broke out a little Queen, Men at Work and Hall and Oats. BRING IT ON!
