Sometimes when I am doing the dishes with one of the children, they really open up and start talking...telling me their hopes and dreams. Today one son was telling me about some writing ideas he has and we discussed how to make them actually happen. He has always had a wonderful imagination and is using it in his writing. Then he went on to some gardening ideas he has that will be blessings to all of us: a feast for both the stomach, the eyes and the soul. Both of us are more than ready for some homegrown tomatoes and basil.
As we were finishing up I was wiping down some cabinets and started thinking about our little kitchen remodeling project that I would like to soon get underway. I thought about adding some chalkboard paint to some of the cabinets where I could write the breakfast menu on one, lunch on another and dinner on yet another cabinet.
Then it occurred to me that I could paint the inside of the cabinet door with magnetic paint and put needed recipes for the menus on them. The breakfast menu on the front with recipes needed to make the dishes on the back of the door. How handy would that be?
Then I started looking at the track lighting and had visions of changing that up as well. The track lights could be moved to the hallway to highlight the children's photography and art work. What a nice display that would make!
I would like to install mounted lights under the upper cabinets to light up the countertops and I am thinking about some old school house looking pendant lighting for the ceiling. It would probably take 3-4 lights, but I think it would look very neat.
So, what are you dreaming about today? A writing project, gardening, remodeling or just a relaxing day at the beach?
