Where did I leave off?

Bill’s been bugging me that I haven’t blogged in a bit.. but it’s been a bit frustrating.. again mit de standstill. Cotton dropped off the forms, as we were told walls and foundation would happen end of this week, But then got the disappointing phone call that told us it wasn’t going to start until next week Wednesday, and then it would be another week before backfill. This is turning out to be almost a month after we were supposed to have started. I deal with this everyday in the administration of our construction business.. but to deal with it as a customer it’s a completely different thing.

On the inside of the house however, Bill’s got all the ceiling down now.

A few of you have told me that you don’t know what you’re looking at in the house in the photos, and can’t orient yourself. The above photo shows the view from the garage door into the house. The tile floor you see is the old kitchen and dining area. The wall Bill is standing at is where our fridge and stove used to stand. That wall is coming down, as is the old bedroom wall that was behind our dining room.

Here’s a video (sound on) taken from the front entrance that might help.

It’s over exposed in the beginning, I was trying to capture the forms in the excavated hole out the front door.

A bit of a frustrating week for me.. but then I snapped his pic this morning, and melted. I am so very blessed to have a hard working, strong gifted tenacious man who is committed to this project, and working at it daily. Helps that he’s pretty HOT too…

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.
