Then there is light...

 we are slowly unfolding our lives again
moving back into the kitchen
 living a "normal" life once again
peaceful and quiet
 familiar smells and sounds of our abode.
 Gone are the days
 of feeling displaced and awkward
amongst dust, power tools, contractors, people walking in and out
 washing dishes outside with the garden hose
our table, chairs and couches on the porch
living room filled to the brim with cook wear
 always on "red alert"
crossing our fingers that the dogs
don't walk on the newly varnished floor leaving permanent foot prints behind
 not having water
 or electricity
 nor a hot meal in 3 weeks
am I complaining?
Uncomfortable and unfamiliar
 it was all worth it
 no regrets

...and if it gets dark I can turn the light switch on!


  1. I'm glad you are back in your home and things are returning to your normal. I am looking forward to seeing your new kitchen.

  5. Can't wait to see it...i'm sure it's going to be amazing! A whole family surviving a major reno is something i haven't lived through so I can't even imagine the upheaval and the stress, so I'm glad you are seeing the light and nearing the end. Have a great week Camilla
