My kitchen cabinets are from IKEA. The shelves are their standard beech finish, but my doors are a darker color. There are end-cap pieces to make the sides of the cabinets the same color as the doors. They were really easy to attach – until I got to the part under the microwave. That would require cutting a piece. I don’t know why, but that made me put it off. For a long, long time. Six years, to be exact. Yesterday I finally cut the board and attached the pieces. It looks nice. I still have to do the toe-kicks.
I have been spending a lot of time alone lately. I like alone time, but I think I have limits. I think I’m starting to crave more human interaction. As I was returning some screws at Home Depot yesterday, I initiated a long conversation with the woman in front of me in line. She is replacing her deck steps. The guy with her (not in the picture) looked like her son. They’re almost done. The mosquitoes are driving them crazy.
I’ll have to make sure my solitude doesn’t drive me crazy. Maybe I’ll just go to Home Depot each day and chat with the people waiting in the returns line.
