Kitchen Elves

This week my parents came to help on our house
and made big strides
while I was at school all day
they were assembling cabinetry.
I would return in the afternoon
to see the magic of their work
to turn what was once a leaky room
into a kitchen

Their amazing progress...



















With such big headway at the house
and the temperatures rising
I took the weekend off
to swim at the quarry
north of the city



















And today I worked on some of my own
kitchen magic
by trying my hand at a fruit tart
while dreaming of the counter space
at my kitchen in progress.

I will be craving a fruit tart all day thanks to you! :-)

I'm extremely envious of your talent, energy and motivation to do that sort of work on your home yourself. My old house needs lots of that! You are giving me inspiration though, I just might try it.

Ooooooooooooooooo, I'm sure the "elves" would have enjoyed that fruit tart...I can just picture enjoying a slice, seated at the island by the window.
