Easter weekend

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.

We stayed home and took the three day weekend to do some cleaning. I didn't take any pictures of the before and after - we pulled everything out of the garage and power washed the garage on Saturday. Needless to say - after a winter with the grit and salt - it was really dirty. This afternoon we power washed the screen porch and all of the porch furniture.

My son Joe was home from college on Friday and spent the day installing above and under cabinet LED lighting.

Here are a couple of pictures - my camera isn't the greatest - but you get the idea.

The lighting isn't done yet - Friday was just a trial setup. He took the circuit board with him so he can program the above cabinet lighting. We are going to have the lights turn on via motion detector and the above cabinet lights fade from color to color. He installed red, blue and green LED lights above the cabinets, so we will be able to have multiple colors.

You can't see it - but I have a center island - which is where I do all of my prep work - so I never really thought I cared whether the counters under the cabinets were lit . . . but I have to tell you that I love the way that the kitchen looks with the cabinet lights on.

I ran Friday morning and then attended a 90 minute yoga class. Saturday I ran and took today off. I am anxious to run tomorrow morning. I am planning on 5 miles - 2 with my dog and 3 without.

I hope everyone has a great week.
