We have a kitchen sink in a butcher block counter top. This is in addition to the other non-sink counter that I’d already put in. We have a very sexy coffee bar with cubby nooks. We have a low island that is done with half butcher block and half ash. We also have a very nice shelf over the stove that holds the stove vent hood.
Still left to do are the nude cabinets and counter tops (to be ordered from Sutherlands), hanging a new pendant light and a new main kitchen light (yet to be purchased), and putting in the various little shelves that will make the walls not nearly as blank and far more useful than they are now.
The house is being put on the market pretty much immediately and will be listed nationally in a couple of weeks. Know anyone who wants to buy a house? Asking price is $140K, FHA or conventional mortgages are available, and the kitchen, at least, will be a foodie’s dream come true.
And besides that, I’m pondering many other long-term projects, though the priority of them changes from day to day:
* Getting into ND school – time is of the essence, but the money keeps running away from me.
* Writing more sci-fi, fantasy, and horror – I’d love to get published in something other than an informational magazine. (BTW, I have an article coming out in Midwifery Today either this month or next, I’m told.)
* Learning some kind of programming language, and right now, I’m leaning towards Python (thanks, Jeff!) so that I can use Satchmo to build a shopping cart for work. (Details will come out later about this as I get permission to spill the beans.)
Thing is, I’m not a programmer by nature, but I do know how to structure data. It’s just a big question of what I want that data to do.
And in a completely unrelated note, I’m also starting a series of experiments to determine the efficacy of energy work in honing psychic awareness, particularly in the realm of finding things. The first experiment will be posted on the Normality Factor later on today.
