Bill will be arriving on the 23rd of this month, to hopefully move me & the three cats... out of the cottage & into the house.
Here's what's happened this week with the trades.
See how the wall looks blue? That's the Smoke & Mirrors paint colour that is really grey. I see different colours on the walls at different times of the day.
Jeff my kitchen/stair trades person said they had called him, to tell him they would be installing on Tuesday but Jeff said he was only available Monday...curious to see this unfold.
Look at at trades garbage/litter around the kitchen, I use to say to my kids...'Were do you think you are? At home or some other dirty place?!!' Pick up after yourself!
I was too afraid to go into my new bathroom as it has one of the two operating toilets, now that the Johnny-on-the-spot, has been taken away. It also has the only operating sink in the house & I don't want to see black grout spills in there. I'll look...next Friday, on week 24!
My girlfriends are noticing how upset I'm getting. I just want to have a home, a home that is respected, not one that looks like a bunch of teenagers have had a party in.
Everything, even though it's new, is now covered in dust, stickers are still on the windows, nothing is looking new anymore. The garage door is covered in dust & dirt.
I think I won't go to the house until next Friday. Maybe it can get turned around.
Maybe it will be over... in two weeks, week 25. Stay tuned.
Feral Cat - Kitty
This cat has beautiful green eyes & its body is looking, now that it gets fed.
I need to make a feral cat house. I'll be back in town on Monday, to donate blood, 'It's in you to give.' & with all the stress I'm going through with wanting to be in the house, I'm sure my RBC are at a heightened state, so it's a win - win for the blood bank & myself!
Some Sewing Sanity~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I did it several years ago & found it in my London studio & finished it this week.
Wow I miss Boris Loree, that little man of mine. His tail was a #4 Hook tail & it was a nuisance for him when his walking lead would get 'hooked' under it.
The winter Christmas rabbit has had a window added behind him & some snow flakes will be needle punched in to show it snowing outside. I saw some tonight!
I could not resist this sweet, antique planter of a barn & sheep, made in Japan. It will really come to life with some greenery in it. My big find at the thrift shop was a GAP denim coat, lined in Borg, for $5!!
Yes Bill, another coat! Once I get all my clothes together, I'm going to count the coats & get an inventory. But one has to have coats for our, ever changing, four seasons, winter, spring, summer. & fall. This is a fall & spring coat that will be used, when I'm working outside.
Thank you for taking the time to visit. I'm getting a little impatient with the house & Christmas right around the corner.
Family will be flying in & it was difficult this Thanksgiving but we made the best of it. With the cold weather just around the corner & outside cement work still to do. I'm stressed & have the histamine intolerance to prove it!
Till week 24.

When was the last time, you did something for the first time?
