Cabinet done, floor coming along! A special gift and a graduation!

 Well almost another week has passed and it's been productive. πŸ˜€ Most of the week was spent working on the outside kitchen. Ken's getting the pavers down. It is slow going as each paver needs to be leveled so the floor isn't out of whack. He tries to get 2 rows done a day before he has to go on to other things because there is still stuff to do around here. It's also been very hot . Summer is in the air for sure. 

Two more rows were done today. This was last night's picture
I think he's only got four more rows to do πŸ˜ƒ

I concentrated on the Youngstown cabinet and sink.  Gotta say the prep work was the worst, but it's done! 😍 Finished the sink today.  With it being a bargain in the first place at $30.00, for $42.00 and some elbow grease, sanding and painting we have a beauty! 

We knew there was a treasure to be got here 
Good thing we have vision! Haha..


This shows some of the gloss that the cabinet and sink have
on them 

Yeah, pretty bad huh..I had to laugh as I got down there to
sand inside the cabinet it scared me, I thought it was a lizard
inside the cabinet on the wall. We all know I don't like lizards!

Before some sanding and cleaning 

Hard to tell in the picture but it's very glossy..

Hopefully we can get it on the cabinet either this afternoon or tomorrow.
                        Ken's got a little plumbing to do to get it hooked up 

We'll head for Lowe's to pick up a little more concrete on Monday.  

Yesterday we were surprised with a Fed EX delivery of this beauty we didn't know we were getting! Thank you Eric and Christina! πŸ’— Eric said it was a Mother's / Father's Day present.  I say it's that and Birthdays and Christmas! I talked with Christina last week and she was asking things about the kitchen, but I never guessed we'd end up with this. πŸ’™

Love this! 

Eric and Christina posted on FB yesterday so I had to steal.

They attended the California Highway Patrol graduation as one of  Seth's friend's,  Rhys graduated the academy. They've all known Rhys (Reece) since they were young. He used to be at Seth's house or vice versa until they moved to southern California years back. When he got his drivers license he drove up to see Seth and family. Very proud of this young man! 

Mason and Rhys πŸ’™
Eric, Christina, Rhys and Mason πŸ’™

They even found the plaque from when Ken's brother Don graduated the 
in 1987

Congratulations Rhys!! 
His dad pinned him as he is also Highway Patrol 😊
made me tear up talking with Eric last night 

Ken barbecued tonight some awesome pork! We had left over veggie mix and it was all so good! Have a great night πŸ˜‹
