Moved the track lights to the center of the kitchen. That seems to work well. Today I put in a dimmer switch as well in case we decide they're too intense. I've also installed some under-cabinet lights. The switch is in and the wire has been run up to the attic. All I need, in theory, is another hour to put the wiring together with the power. I'd like to do that tonight still, so I can see what the lights look like, you know, at night.
