…And Here We Go…
I haven’t posted in a while, because, well…,life got in the way…The condo got “staged” and a new session/semester, started at work, with yet more courses I’ve never taught before. The good news is that the condo was sold in 5 days. The deal closed in 10 days and I’m over the moon. The sort…
My condo is now almost completely staged, ready for potential purchasers to tour, and I LOATHE it! This IS NOT a space I am comfortable in. It is devoid of my/any personality. It has all the visual flavour of an arrowroot biscuit. Were it any more bland, it would be the spatial equivalent of a…
A very special delivery.
Before Christmas, I ordered a book from Kenney’s Bookshop and Art Gallery in Galway, Ireland, “Jane Austen Embroidery” written by Jennie Bachelor and Alison Larkin. I’d pretty much forgotten about it. packing up the condo and getting it ready to go on the market pushed this purchase out of my head. Much to my surprise,…
Eco Friendly cleaning
My cousin posted a photo earlier this week, a picture of an eco friendly Swiffer sweeper cover her mom had made for her . It’s washable, reusable and, when it comes to the end of its usability, it can be composted because it’s made of 100% cotton. Not only is it more effective than the…
The Second load of packing and Donating
Thank goodness for my helper who has been an absolute treasure in helping me pack up (heck she’s really doing most of it, who am I kidding?) my condo here in Ontario! I’d been utterly lost without her!
Am I Nutz?
The house I have bought in Yarmouth this summer is being overhauled as you’ll have seen from previous posts. I got an email from the gentleman from whom I bought the house and who is@germainewoman overseeing some renovations for me. He was approached by a nursing agency to see if he could arrange some accommodations…
Sticking up For Me
As you may know, (heaven knows I’m talking about it enough 😀) I am having some renovations done to a house in Yarmouth Nova Scotia. One of the renovations involves removing a pantry, adding electrical plugs, and pushing a refrigerator into the newly expanded area. Doesn’t seem like something that’s going to cause a lot…
Doing it different
In the kitchen of the Yarmouth NS house there are/were two full length pantries. One of the fabulous guys working on the house suggested taking out one of them and sliding the fridge into the opening. This slight of hand will gain 14 inches of floor space. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but…
One of the many things that drew me to the house I’m purchasing was, as ridiculous as it may sound, the pocket door that separates the living room from the main hall.
Somehow it seems fitting, that on the first day of 2023, I am starting my personal journey to Yarmouth, NS. There’s still so much to do here in Ontario. I am still fighting the urge to procrastinate packing. My condo is going to go on the market next month (February) and I’m still working on…
