Kitchen progress this week: the counter tops are on order !! On Friday the Cambria sales rep and his son came to our house with his fancy machine to measure and template the tops. It was some type of digitizer (sp?) that sent information to his computer so they can accurately cut and fabricate the quartz. Too complicated for me but it impressed my husband. And I think the sales rep was equally impressed by the cabinetmaker! As you can see, we've still got a long way to go but things are starting to take shape. Glass or maybe mica will go in the upper part of the cabinets and the refrigerator and pantry cabinets and crown mouldings still need to be installed. It's taken us almost three years to get this far so I'm used to the anticipation! Since we didn't get to spend much time here last time, Sunday afternoon climbed on the Harley and rode back to Stream Cliff Farm Winery and Herb Farm. Mr. and Mrs. T came along and our first stop was the winery.
The guys didn't do any tasting, but Mrs T and I picked out some of our favorites. My tastes go more for the sweet wines so these were my choices. Aren't these the cutest labels? We made it here just in time! The skies opened with a good 20+ minute downpour.

We watched the clouds roll by and were very glad to have avoided this downpour! Unfortunately we weren't that lucky on the ride home as we ran into another heavy shower and had to take refuge at an old gas station.

Our guys were man enough to enjoy a late lunch at the Twigs and Sprigs Tearoom!

My choice was the Blueberry Walnut Salad, complete with edible flower and herb bread. Mmmmm.
We browsed through some of the little shopping areas. Mrs. T models one of the many gardening hats for sale in front of an antique quilt as she clutches her wine purchases.
Unfortunately (or fortunately!) my camera was shoved into the trunk of the bike as we waited out the rainstorm on our way home so no photos of the soggy bikers cowering under the awning at the old abandoned gas station . But it was a great little trip anyway and now the T's know the new motorcycle seat purchase was worthwhile!

We stopped to check up on the parents-to-be for a few minutes. The nursery awaits! No news yet but they're definitely counting the days!

Counter top should be here in 10 days to two weeks. Grand baby.......? Which will come first? Send your comments and let me know which one you think! Have a great week!

Love how the nursery turned out!

Hmmm... I'm going to guess... cabinets first.

Ummm...countertops first! Sorry we missed the downpour pictures -- I'll bet it was fun! ;-)

This is me... said...

First - your kitchen looks gorgeous.

Second - there is something kind of fun about getting caught in a rain storm on a bike, that is as long as it passes fairly quickly. Now my husband, on the otherhand would keep going with the thought we are going to run out of it.

Third - the nursery is adorable. I love the wall color.

And I wouldn't know how to bet on the arrivals. One pregnancy was 3 weeks late and the second one was three weeks early. Both arrivals sound like alot of fun though!
