Week 52 ~ Saying Goodbye

This is the final week for Focus on Life... year  1... I have posted every week....

I'd really rather not say goodbye to this group!  It's been a lot of fun... Sally announced last week that the group would be continuing. The 'blog' signups for year two have started so some of us won't be saying good-bye! 

What have I said goodbye to this year...  My tacky country kitch kitchen

The sink is just out of this picture to the right.  You can't really see the vinyl wall paper with little blue houses all over it  (GACK)


Same wall, same counter top refinished... window used to be above sink and didn't look outside... oven hood will be put back together after tiles have been grouted... stove is where the sink used to be  Fridge is now where all the drawers are in the 'country kitch kitchen'

My mother said goodbye to the condo that they moved in to in October  2010, when she was moved into extended care , (shortly after her 90th birthday) dad is wait listed to be moved into the same complex.  So the condo will need to be cleaned out.....

Goodbye kitchen! I wish pine didn't yellow so much otherwise it would stay nice in my mind. I have some pine furniture my dad made me and used this pickling stain on, it looks wonderful still and the pink furniture he made for his own home and just varathaned is oh so yellow! Happy 2014 in your new kitchen

Just proves that parting isn't always "sweet sorrow." Thinking of all the fun cooking you will do in your new kitchen! Happy New Year!

I love your new kitchen! Fun to start over isn't it? At least when you're young. My heart goes out to your parents and you... That's a stage that must be difficult and yet we have to accept the change.

I will definitely be cking in from time to time and will participate when I can via instagram and FB. I hope to do a lot of blogging in 2014 now that I've given myself some "time off" for a bit.

Happy 2014!
