Restore

We are thankful that we’re able to give back a little with this demo/Reno.. not just purging, trashing and selling. Bill took the day off Monday from his day job to do more demo and to be home for the Restore truck from Habitat for Humanity to come pick up our kitchen, some plumbing fixtures, light fixtures and doors.

With their permission, here’s some pics from Bill. Habitat’s ReStore is a Canadian idea, accepting donations of building materials from homeowners and businesses to sell to raise funds for their home building projects.  It’s such a great program all around.. less landfill, raising funds, helping people.  They also take appliances, one of the things they have the greatest need for right now.    Good to know for when we’re ready to make that change!

Life and other more important matters took precedence for me the last couple of days, but I hope to get back in the house tonight to help with demo again.

Excavation is booked for tomorrow weather permitting! Woot!

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.
