This week we spent much of our energy on the floors. I finished installing the engineered hardwood in the bedrooms and started tiling the master bathroom and kitchen floors. So far, everything seems to be turning out okay, although there were a couple times I questioned the wisdom of trusting such highly visible aspects of this project to an untrained amateur.
Nancy continued to hang shower tiles. She was slowed by a trip to upstate New York to take care of some business with her mother. She also need to rest sore fingers that were eaten raw by the mortar. She will wear gloves from now on.
More kitchen cabinets arrived. I was not aware that the used cabinets we were purchasing do not match. You can imagine our surprise when we realized that, so far the kitchen cabinets have four different door designs and two different hardwoods, oak and maple. Hmmm… I wonder what creative solution we will come up with this time???
Nancy and I will leave for Ridgewood, NJ in a couple hours to join in Grace Church’s Global Impact Sunday. We look forward to reconnecting with our friends there and helping them remember that our God is global. He is the only lasting hope in our troubled world. He has given us the privilege and responsibility to invite all people from all nations to his eternal Kingdom.
