banned from the kitchen and I wasn't even cooking!

Kitchen renovations were in full swing today. 

Sadly, I was not involved in much of the renovating.  I was banned from the kitchen before things really got started.  I was told that I was more help when I wasn’t helping.  I suppose tripping over and bumping into things makes for a dangerous combination. 

Of course, I was on occasion needed to give a hand when two hands weren’t enough.  Or when something needed to be vacuumed. 

The work is going slowly.  I would suggest it was because I’m not helping, but I’m certain my husband would say it would go even slower if I was helping. The truth of it is, that there is just more to do than I expected.  I think we will be done with the island by tomorrow.  I promise to add pictures when it is finished. 

In other news…

I’m working on a new novel.  A thriller.  Sample and title will be forthcoming…watch for it.  But in the mean time, I need names for my characters.  If you would like your name in book let me know.  I will choose a name from those submitted to me in comments.  The main character is a 30something year old man.  I also need to find a name for his wife, and a few other minor characters, so keep the submissions coming. 

Tomorrow looks to be another rainy day.  I have a lot of writing to do, and a kitchen to remodel…well…Mike has a kitchen to remodel. 

Until the next time…I’ll be watching from the sidelines.
