NaBloPoMo 19: Sorbet

For a bit of refreshment, today I'm providing you with a sorbet. For once, I'm not going to talk very much about dieting, except in my labels.

Instead, I'm going to show you the kitchen renovation that's been tormenting me for months.

OK. This is the only picture I managed to take of the before:

Kitchen, before

and this is During, except from the opposite end of the kitchen.

Kitchen, during

It's not much of a change, right?

Well, there are some differences. New floor, new window, new cabinets. But it's going to be the exactly the same layout. Same appliances. And I'm sorry, but I like white cabinets, so the new ones look almost exactly the same as the old ones.

It's sort of like listening to someone talk about dieting and then finding out she only plans to lose seven pounds. Right?


  1. Update me on the granite problem.

    Oh, it looks good.
    The SAME, but good.

  2. And how do you stick to 22 points and not spend most of your time hungry?

  3. bb: thanks! This is actually kind of an old picture. The granite (that you've heard so much about) is there, and they're working on the floor even as we speak.

    SC: I can't claim credit for it. There was one there. But! It was old and drafty and basically sucked.

    jen on the edge of starvation: Hmm. Mostly, I think it's because I eat high volume, high fiber food. Oatmeal with raspberries, a high-fiber low-carb wrap for my sandwich, lots of veggies in the sandwich, a pear for dessert--that kind of thing. I mean, if I tried to get by on Lean Cuisines and those 100 calorie packets of Oreo crisps, I'd never make it.

    Also, I drink gallons of tea with 2 percent milk and Splenda.
