It felt good to have the fresh breeze whipping around, it's so humid inland, I'm missing the shore.
Soon, I'll be going back to the house, just another 4 weeks. I'll be home for Thanksgiving, fingers crossed!!
I love the size of the front foyer & as you can see...there's many doors coming off of it!
From this view, you can see the frosted front entry, the powder room, basement door, the large kitchen opening,& coming around the corner will be my sewing room, the black hole opening on the right is a closet, that goes down a long hallway. On the other side of the hall is the stair case, another coset, the elevator, & the door to the garage!! Many many openings & doors...10, just of that foyer!
I'm going with the light oak coloured one. The rest of the floors between the stairway is black slate with dark grey grout. I find the lightness refreshing & more visible upon the coming's & going's on the stair treads. There will be a carpet installed down the middle of the stairs, after we have moved everything in. Now I'm thinking the mid tone to keep with the brick tones...
And I wonder why I'm Histamine Intolerant now!!!
Bill took me to Moncton on my birthday last Wednesday. We went to the Home Depot for 4 new one piece toilets & 2 hot water heaters. Happy Birthday to me! It was a fun whirl-wind day, I had to change out of my sandals & into my sneakers to keep up with Bill!
Can you see it peaking through the hole that Francis drilled out? Oh what a cozy winter this year!
There will be no shortage of power as this 400 amp gets tamed into its box!
For those that have rubber boots, this is an interesting product! When I purchased my Hunter boots last year, the sales person told me it would be a wise investment to get the cleaner for those boots.
I've never paid so much for rubber boots but these were the same brand of boots endorsed by Queen Elizabeth, so they must be the best! And they have not let me down! With all the comfortable hours of wear & tear in the wet weather & garden, the boots have shown their wear.
Oh... & Hunter boots is & has not sponsored this endorsement! lol
When Bill & I were in Moncton this week on my birthday whirl wind, we shopped at Costco & I have not been in for awhile but have been a member since 1992, in London ON & it is still the same at this time of year.
I laughed out loud & said to Bill that it has not changed...Halloween on one isle & Christmas on the other! With that jolt of Christmas coming, I thought I'd better step up my sewing if I want to get my Christmas projects done!
Today I've going to cut & sew those 42 log cabin squares, well really more as I'm chain piecing & would notice another dozen going through. It's a good way to use up the scraps left over too!
The block finishes at 6 1/2" so it will be a very effective 5th border. Then three more will need to be added for a total of 8 borders! The finished quilt will measure 78" x 96'', a twin size quilt or a good sized, cuddle quilt on the couch.
Call me traditional...I just love the colour red at Christmas!
Funny Fond Pillow...
I saw this pillow while on the Wayfair.ca website & thought how true! That wee dog, the wee little man, was my companion & therapist for sure.
But what a fun pillow someone has designed, I just love it!
As the saying goes, "Better to have loved & lost, than to have never have loved at all." I don't know who said it but they too must have had a aching heart & tried to think positive on the pain.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. It will be a month before I move into the new house & I've so many decisions to make on this last stretch with the colour on the walls. So glad the flooring is done...if the black slate flooring can be found now...
