To Do Tuesday 2-22-22

Welcome to To Do Tuesday on 2-22-22 - how cool is that? Doesn't happen often, that's for sure! Here you will find a linkup to keep track of your goals and achievements and in-process projects. Everyone is welcome to join in, and you will find the linkup at the end of this post.

Jack is giving his critique of the painted drawers

Last week I had no goals other than to control the chaos in the house with our new puppy, new three year old dog, and the kitchen cabinets being painted. I'm happy to say that we survived the week! We are both still tired, but the pups are doing great. Boomer the 9 week-old puppy has us partially trained on when to take him out. If left to his own devices though, he would use the entire house as his bathroom, and night time in his crate is another matter. Let's just say paper towels are our salvation. Baker, other than wanting to eat our cats' food, is sweet and obedient and loves to play with Boomer! He is the epitome of "good boy".


The kitchen cabinets are painted, all of our "stuff" is back in place, and yesterday the contractor started on the backsplash. Hopefully next Tuesday I can show you some before/after shots, but look below to see a sneak peek of the backsplash.

Here are my goals for the coming week:
1. Work on catching up with Riley Blake Design block challenge
2. Make a few blocks for the Wedding Quilt
3. Catch up on SAHRR

  2. You have been busy but its looking great. All the best with catching up on the Riley Blake Challenge which is a lot of fun. Being the last week of the month, no new block so that gives a bit of catch up time.

  4. Linda, your kitchen is looking amazing! I love the photo of Jack in the drawer, too - cats are so hilarious! We haven't had a puppy in a long time, but remember house-training as a full-time job. He'll get there, though. Thanks for hosting us every week!

  5. Wow, your kitchen is looking great! I'm glad Jack is handling the quality control part of the painting - I hope he at least waited until the paint was dry!

  6. Love the photo of Jack. How's he doing with the pups? Tony wants us to get a rescue dog as that is all he has had all his long life. Neddy is his first from a puppy and he has always had 2. But it's hard at the beginning with training but that will settle down fast. Hang in there. Lovely back splash...going to be so easy to clean too.

  8. Hi Linda! Your kitchen cabinets look gorgeous. I am a huge fan of white - they just look so nice and crisp and clean to me. Your new backsplash compliments them nicely. It sounds like everyone is falling into a routine - both the pups and you two. Thanks for the linky party today! I've got to go check out a few friends posts. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  14. The kitchen looks great! I love those tiles, remind me of ones that I have but in a beach glass color way. Percy slept better in the crate when it was covered...you may have already tried that. Hooray for surviving the week and having a refreshed kitchen and animals to tell the tail (ha ha) of a week of learning to love each other.

  15. Ha! Cats are so funny the way they have to just sit inside things. I leave boxes (from shipped items) sit around for a bit after I get them in the mail just so my cat can have some new entertainment for awhile. Oh, I bet you are so happy with your new kitchen! The sneak peak looks great!!

  19. Any type of home improvement takes a lot of energy, even if you aren't doing it. Sounds like the puppies are settling in well. Hope you've been able to get in lots of stitching time this week.
