The inside of our kitchen is all but done (still waiting on the decorative tile backsplash), but the outside still looks like a constructions zone. No bricks, Tyvek paper, a PCV pipe instead of a downspout, blue plastic, and dirt instead of landscaping. This shows the bump out, but we've got the same look going on the other side of the exterior door.
If this was the middle of winter, I wouldn't mind so much, but this construction zone is the view from the patio, which puts the kibosh on outside entertaining, including a kitchen warming celebration.
I'm losing patience.
Luckily, I'm reading a great little mystery set in Aix-en-Provence, where the characters enjoy good food and spend a lot of time describing the wondeful meals they eat and wine they drink. Maybe more wine would make me not mind my unfinished remodel.
