The picture from the living room looking in toward the kitchen through the pass-through shows Rachel's murphy bed: a horizontal twin model. A big slab of granite is going over the top of it to make a counter for the kitchen; it will extend just a little bit into the kitchen itself. Will make a nice place to set hot items from the oven and also serve people buffet style. Can't wait to do some entertaining!
To all our friends and family back in California, we're surviving the cooler weather just fine. I guess when you're in California and you hear about snowstorms back east, you assume the worst. Believe us, we'll let you know if we're experiencing the worst. So far, it's been very mild: a little bit of snow, a little bit of wind, a little bit of cold air--nothing our clothes can't handle. :-)
