Love being Canadian

We are having some people in for a little C day celebration! Just burgs , salad, and of course cocktails. I have all my salads done and am listening to some cheesy summer music on the radio (secretly I'm lovin it). Iain is just finishing up some weeding and Sio is off on an elusive lemonade search. I am ready to shower and get my party garb on.
Happy Canada Day Y'all

New Bathroom and Sunshine

Whoop whoop!! The bathroom is fantastic. Have already had a couple of baths and showering is quite an experience. I'm excited to decorate it now ---- thinking of a beach theme.
Finally some sunshine and laundry on the clothesline. It started out overcast and cool this am and I was terribly disappointed. But this aft the sun came out and it hit its high of 22. I did accomplish getting my closet cleaned out and as lame a freak that I am I enjoy seeing my neat and tidy closet

Poopy Rain

The only thing good about this week is that by the end of it we will have our new bathroom. Today it is raining AGAIN!!!!!!
I haven't cleaned for almost two weeks (no point with the amount of dust flying around ) so tomorrow will be a heavy duty cleaning day. Robert is coming in Saturday to golf with Iain so I'll have to get that spare room cleaned up from dust and leftover bathroom stuff. It will be nice to wake up in the morning with clear eyes.
All of a sudden our little next door neighbour (Gwen she's 3)has become Miss Chatty. She wants to ask you what you are doing altho I get the feeling it is more of a vehicle for her to tell us what she is doing LOL!!!

Feelin' dirty and tired

Spent the morning playing in the mud under the guise of weeding the gardens. After that awful hail, rain,thunder and lightening storm yesterday and last nite everything was sodden. I was up early again this morning,didn't wash my hair but now wished I had cuz I feel yukky.
Bathroom is looking even more amazing. The pot lites are up and there will be absolutely no excuse for nicks on the legs now. The wall tiles are up -- grouting to be done hopefully tomorrow. As I write this Ron is putting the vanity together. It is absolutely dreadful outside -- raining and only about 15 and all I want is a hot shower ( sniff sniff).I'm hoping he is done soon so I can have my lick and a promise bath in the laundry tub. I may even have a little lay down.

Drinking iced latte and waiting................

Up real early this morning 6:00!! This may sound extremely lame but having a man in my house all day has screwed my routine. Of course I know he is putting in our amazing new bathroom but it still is upsetting. So this morning I got up washed my hair in the laundry room sink put coffee on and sat for 1/2 an hour all by my lonesome. I spent most of the day in the garden and my poor old 51 year old back finally said enough is enough. And here I sit nursing an iced latte and waiting for Ron (that's my man's name ) to finish up so i can have a dip in the pool. Yup we put our pool up yesterday. Sio spent a good time in it til the thunder rolled in.
By the way the bathroom is looking amazing!! He thinks he will be finished by Thursday or Friday at the very latest. I am sooooo looking forward to a shower and then a lonnnnng bath ( music, candles and sparkly).
Guess I should bring my sheets in off the line and move the sprinkler
