  1. It's official!

    by , 07-05-2014 at 11:24 AM (Creative Call)
    We signed the dotted line for the kitchen cabinets and countertop. Total cost will be about $9000, half of which we already put down in a deposit. We also bought a dishwasher and range hood, for $1100. Now all we need to do is buy the backsplash tile and decide on the flooring. August will be an expensive month!

    On top of that we received a dental treatment plan for myself for $6500!!! I about fainted. Insurance will only cover $2500. I am looking for a second opinion from ...

    Sorry for the long absence everyone. I had a slight problem with my heart over the winter months and now sport a brand new piece of equipment called a pacemaker. I feel much better now. However other areas in my life have suffered.

    What are we up to these days?

    We have embarked on a kitchen renovation. Contractor is signed up to come mid-August to start ripping things out. I am packing up dining room stuff to make room for kitchen stuff as it is our makeshift kitchen ...
  3. Is it Fall Already?

    The leaves are already turning yellow on some of the trees across the alley! I feel cheated out of summer. I have been very busy.

    The last couple of days I canned 32 cups of sugar-free applesauce (with stevia). I also finished hooking 5 rugs for sale, and have another 4 almost ready to go. I received a cheque for the ones that sold. That feels good.

    I am gearing up for a big sale this fall. I was given 'heads up' notice one of the shops I sell my rugs at will ...

  4. Carefree Summer?

    by , 06-28-2013 at 08:39 PM (Creative Call)
    What's that? Well things have slowed down a bit here, but I am busy catching up on my rest and crafting. I finally hung the paintings I had framed on the wall. It required an entire shuffle of paintings throughout the house. We decided to use our long hall wall as an art gallery/storage for paintings. It will be kinder to the paintings than storing them on the floor in the basement or in a cardboard box.

    The upshot of all this is I have new paintings on my living room and ...

  5. Back home again

    by , 06-16-2013 at 08:06 PM (Creative Call)
    Had a kid from church come over to help DH mow the lawn and do some weeding. It started to rain, so they came inside and I had him help me make some Blueberry Muffins. He and hubby were right at it looking at astronomy stuff on the Internet. I invited him over sometime to use our telescope ($20 at a garage sale) to look at the night sky.

    Did up a schedule for the week on iCal and about fainted. It's wicked busy! I insisted on building in half hour rest breaks twice a day. Otherwise ...
