Moving tomorrow

It's here finally - the big move to Stratford happens tomorrow. Seemed like such a long wait and now it is upon us. I am so looking forward to it.

Here is the kitchen. The light coming in from that door is spectacular - it faces south.
I am going to be reconfiguring the kitchen but have some electrical and plumbing work to do first before I can change the layout here - it is a bit awkward with the stove right beside the fridge. Ok for now but not ideal. There is no fume hood either so that will have to be added.

This is the house - my Stratford friend Liz took the picture the day the sold sign went up. I am hoping the snow is gone by now - although Stratford is in a snow belt.

I would love to find some archival pictures of the house when it had its front porch - you can see the discolouration the brick where the porch roof was. Maybe a restoration project down the road!

Anyway there is lots to do still so see you on the other side

Puppy slept through the night last night!


What a difference a full night's sleep makes

Verrry interesting...

Paid a measuring visit to the new house in Stratford today and was delighted and enchanted to see some Opuntia in the garden. It is a hardy cactus and a bit on the obscure side so I am much anticipating seeing what other delights await me under the snow.

A bit of a shock to have a couple of inches of snow cover there still when all of ours is gone (it is in the snow belt after all) - all the more to anticipate

Granite wants to know what all the fuss is about and can it be eaten

4 week freak out

I move in 4 weeks - now I am starting to freak out as we are in the month of the move. It always seemed so far away until today!

My daughter moved into her new apartment on the weekend and the house is already feelinga bit echo-y and empty. Much to do!
