Demolition Derby

I’ll let the pics speak for themselves mostly. Today Bill got a big head start on the demo, taking off all the plug and light covers first, taking wall mount microwave down, then cabinets… opening up a wall…and WOW we have open concept!

The tile is gonna be a bear…

This video doesn’t exist

Meanwhile I made runs back and forth between our house and the J lounge, making chili and bringing Bill lunch, bringing last few items from house into storage as well.

Featuring jalapeños and garlic from last summers garden, and using up more of the pantry! Woot!

I also got a bit of quiet play time in with Brooke and Oma Wilma. I’m so gonna enjoy the next few months getting to know some of my great nieces and nephew better.

I rigged this paper warning under the chandelier, cause I fit under it easily walking, but Bill, not so much. Note the paper.. “everything must go!”

Oh and you know what I was saying about paper clips?

There is no end to them!!!

Bill (Guillermo 'cause he likes pretending he knows Spanish) and I (Amy) have been married since Sept 2005. We live in Southern Ontario, Canada - Niagara Peninsula in fact, smack dab between 2 of the Great Lakes. We love God, our family, our church family, and making each other laugh. (ergo the profile pic, he decided to make our photographer laugh by throwing a leg up on me just before the shutter clicked, which made ME laugh) When we married, I told Bill: "I don't know how to cook" but he had faith in me. So 15 years later, I'm still learning, and having fun. I've never (in my whole life) cooked a whole bird, chicken, turkey or otherwise. I've never roasted a beef, other than in a crockpot on low for 8 hrs. I like trying to find healthy & easy recipes and then I rarely follow them. I don't enjoy recipes that take hours or intricate steps. I have a special fondness for the Podleski sisters, writers/creators of the Looney Spoons, Crazy Plates and Yum/Yummer cookbooks. In 2018 we suddenly decided to rip our small house apart from stem to stern, moving out for 4.5 months while the house was demolished inside and out, and then rebuilt with an addition. If you go back in the archives to July-Dec 2018 you can follow that story. It's made our house open and so much more conducive to entertaining, small groups and large. It's given us the kitchen I've dreamed of to create and learn in. We feel incredibly blessed to be able to write about our journey, our faith in God and some fun recipes along the way. Thanks for joining us.
