It's fun to spend time in the kitchen! Making cookies, talking on the phone.

Faucet installed

The faucet went in Wednesday afternoon. Just in time for holiday visitors. It would have been trying to go sinkless during the holidays. If you live in Noho, Claude Laprade is the man. Although he's probably busy...but you really can't go wrong. Bravo Claude! Happy Holidays.

Countertop Arrival

The Stone Soup guys backed the truck up and extended the ramp directly from the street to our front door. (Whether there were any trolls under the bridge, we may never know!) The largest pieces were on special dollies that wheeled into the house. The dollies flipped up, allowing pieces to be moved the shortest distance under their own weight.

Lights update

Well, our Tech lighting is not quite all complete. We ordered 1" standoffs and one of the standoffs was a 2". As you can see here with Mr. Too Tall:

One of these is not like the others!

So that tiny detail has kept us from getting all the lights up on the ceiling. I heard from Hampden-Zimmerman: the wee standoff is on order, but is held up by Tech to ship out with another HZ order. I guess the $2k we paid for the lighting doesn't prompt Tech or HZ to ship the wee piece to us FedEx directly. So we wait. The other Tech order is expected to ship around Dec. 12. So we should have the newest addition to the short standoff club by Christmas.

How's that for a holiday lighting story?
