Low and High Emotions


Not sure what to title this post.  It has been a pretty quiet week here around home.  My brother and I worked on our little rental house.


Spent most of the week building cabinets in the kitchen, baths, and utility room.  Seems most people now go to the big box store and purchase their cabinets ready made.  We still do it the old way.  We build the caseworks and hang them ourselves.  Also build the drawers and mount them.  We have the cabinet doors and drawer fronts made by a local cabinet shop, which we also install.  The countertops will be ceramic tile.  The end is in sight.



But by the end of the week, a very important event for our family had taken place.  Our little girl has moved on.  She journeyed from the dusk of her youth, to the dawn of adulthood.



There is nothing that could have made us any more proud. 


What more can I say?…..


  1. What a beautiful family!! You must be very proud of her and if I remember right she is your only grandchild?

  2. Congratulations! She's absolutely beautiful!

  3. That last photo says it all. Congrats to your granddaughter on this big life event.

  4. What a great graduation pic with all of those mortarboards in the air!! And with Honors, no less...

  5. Not bad for a pretty quiet week! :)

    I'm impressed with the cabinets... and a little teary eyed at the graduation.

    Best wishes to her and all of you!

  6. Yep, I agree, the last pic says it all!! Congratulations!!
    The house is looking very nice!!
