    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...

    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...

    It has been a busy summer so far. I still tutor four mornings a week. I tutor ESL to both adults and children. It is volunteer work I do through the church. I also managed to teach a gentleman to drive Canadian style. He has his license and I am relieved I do not have to drive with him...

    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...

    :) We are going on vacation...somewhat. Things being what they are, we have very little time for vacation this year. Hubby has five weeks vacation through work, but we cannot afford to take them if we want to fix up the house. Soooo... We are going to take 7 days to go to the West Coast to...

    Vacation is on, vacation is off. Hubby feels the heart pull him to see his prodigal nephew married. So I think we will go. But we may not go for as long or as far. We can cut the trip costs in half that way. It would be $1500 for the two of us for 9 days. The catch is we have to pull a 12...

    It's a windy, blowy, overcast day here on the prairies. Currently we're at a balmy 0*C. So nice to have warm weather again! Though with the wind chill it's -8*C. I am home with nothing to do really. A day for a nice break. I have been hooking rug, and planning menus for the trip to the...

    Dropping the other vacation was a good idea. I just figured out an eleven day trip to the coast and determined we can do it for $1000/person for the basics, IF we do not stay in major centres like Vancouver. I have done Vancouver to death, so I am more than happy to spend my time elsewhere...

    Hubby and I went out to dinner last evening and talked vacation. We both had a really busy day and decided to treat ourselves. The upshot was, after a long hard look at the budget, and coming up with a list of expenses for both trips, we decided to axe the one closer to home. It was just...

    So I started out the year planning a staycation for the summer so we could get things done around the house and yard. Then hubby's nephew up and announced he was getting married...in BC. That's a 2 or 3 day drive away. Add to that our boarder who is from Asia, and currently back there, and...
