choices...

we are having to make choices on getting this kitchen make over on...
this choice was a no brainer...
stainless steel and very plain...
easy to keep clean through the years...
because we cook so much here...

we need one light over the table and I don't like things that hang down too much...
a flush mount will work here...
and this is also the cheapest one online...

and we need track lighting or pendants over the island...
the sink is in the island...
there is a flush mount there now...
so this is what I found...
and this is LED, so it says we won't have to change the bulbs for 25 years...
we might need a medallion to cover the larger hole from the previous light, and those are cheap...

this was a close second...
its also an LED light...

both can be used with a dimmer switch, which I think is what we will end up with...
I have never been in a kitchen with LED lights, so if you have or have them in yours, I would love you feed back about them before I order these...
we are sleeping on it a few more nights before I put the order in...

I spent yesterday in bed, got up for lunch and supper and slept through until about 9pm...
I was getting up as DH was heading in there for the night...
I am finally feeling better, but going to just hang out again today...
DH has a 3 day weekend and I would like to do something besides blow my nose, cough and dibble my pants when I sneeze...

got all the valentine bags ready for the kids and DH...
got the valentines mailed out to family earlier in the week...
so we are ready for that...
hard to believe the next big holiday after this one is Easter...
so ready for spring...
we got a bit of snow last night, but our son, who lives southwest of us, had the ground covered...
spring is going to feel so good!
have a great weekend and happy heart day!

I like those track lites, and that one over table is similar to what we did at Julie's house, and it looks good.
I'm thinking the led lites will be good, but check on the replacement price before you order them. We have one at church, to light the cross in the window, that the new bulb cost about $235.00 and I didn't get the . in the wrong place.

over the island, we have 2 separate hanging lights. not track.

Tete finally caught up on your blog-I think the dimmer switch is
the best thing since sliced bread-at certain times the LED lights can be too bright for me so dimmer solves that problem. So many beautiful pics and crafts I loved seeing. Hope the migraine goes away and stays away.
