Remember when I wondered if my dad is a superhero? Well, he is. I know it for sure now.
I went up to NH briefly two weeks ago to visit him and my step-mom and to just check in on the A-Frame. Over the spring he had put a new roof on the porch, re-sided the front of the addition section, and stretched new screen into the front porch frames, so I wanted to see all that and get a sense of what kind of work I'm looking at this summer.
We had already decided to tackle the kitchen as the major project for the year, so my dad and I discussed the options (Ikea, furniture, cobble something together) and left it at that.
You know what's coming right?
I mean, WHA?!
He built everything I said I wanted (super simple frame, clad in pine that I will paint white, open front that I will hang curtains from, counter over-hang for stool sitting) and he just knew that I would love the live edge cherry counter tops (he just happened to have that wood laying around).
You can imagine how much squealing I did.
So now I'm off to Maine for the holiday and to visit our friends of the pink blanket fame and then we go to the A-Frame for a full week of work and book-reading and puzzle-doing and deer-fly avoiding and pond swimming and birthday partying and writing and painting and soaking up the quiet.
Happy 4th everyone!
