03/19/22 Kitchen

Today I helped my sister put up her kitchen cabinets. I gathered the hammer, the little nail, the impact driver, the screws, the washers, the levels, the drill bits, and screw heads.

I measured the cabinets. I measured the wall space. I measured the stud locations. I measured it all twice, three times.

I took the doors off the cabinets. I removed the shelves. Anything to make them lighter.

I grabbed a box to stabilize the upper cabinets while I pre-drilled holes, fumbled with the screws, switched between the drill to the impact driver.

I leveled and re-leveled.

I watched the first thunderstorm roll in. I watched the clouds turn to blue sky, then back to clouds again. I watched the chickens through the windows pecking through the wet grass. I watched the horses stand in the doorway, waiting for the rain to pass.

It was a day where we worked almost like a team and got many of them installed. I stepped back, proud of the change before me.

  1. I really enjoyed your structure of “I (verb)” for each new paragraph. It provided a soothing tone and took me right along with you. Your description at the end with the thunderstorm and chickens was also great (rain = change –> I see what you did there!).
