Drive by blogging

I’m coming to terms with our new “schedule” that keeps on shifting… trim is mostly done. Desmo just needs to put door hardware and shoe mold on after flooring and paint. Blinds are getting measured tomorrow, while I clean clean clean getting ready for the painter who is starting in Monday. Floor registers were cut out today, and the plumber should also be running water lines tomorrow.

Here’s where we’re at today…

And yes, today on Nov 15 we’re getting some snow accumulation.. Its supposed to taper off overnite, and turn wet tomorrow. We’re chicken sitting, so Bill set up a heater for the “girls” as their water was starting to freeze.

Angle iron was delivered today for the new brick shelf on the house. Bill will be installing that in the coming week. Progress continues!

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.
