Starting a Condo Renovation Project

The theme of this year is getting small tasks (or “projects” done).  I have a list of things that I put together at the start of the year and I am working down the list as quickly as possible.  My jobs are prioritized based on their importance (for example, painting my home is further down …

An Early Melt

Winter used to be my favorite season of the year.  I love snow on the ground, the relief from allergies the time of year provides and just how quiet things get when the temperature is below freezing.  As a child I spent a lot of my time outside playing in the snow, and winter for …

An Open House Day

For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed going to open houses.  For me, it is an opportunity to see many home designs and get a feel for the good and the bad as it comes to houses.  Each and every one of them brings some good and bad things to the table, …

An Afternoon of Baking

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to be in the kitchen.  I find it truly amazing that you can take a bunch of ingredients that don’t taste exceptional on their own to create something that is delicious, and I have spent hours in the kitchen experimenting with new creations.  I know …

Teaching my Grandmother Typing

At 92 years of age, my grandmother has seen a lot of things in her lifetime.  She has lived through wars, seen the rise in technology, and experienced more changes than I have in my short time here on this planet.  Her real strength comes from adapting to these changes and I have seen her …

Mold Scare

After the slew of issues I have had this year with water problems, I have been a little paranoid when it comes to my home.  I suppose I took for granted that my house was supposed to be a safe place to live in, but since that belief has been rattled a bit this year, …

Finished my Only Renovation this Year

Last year was a whirlwind for me when it came to renovations.  It seemed like every free moment I had was spent renovating my home or helping others get their renovations done.  During the many renovations that were done, I picked up a lot of skills that I will be able to use moving forward …

The Best Place to Buy Educational Toys Online

While most people have been taking advantage of the boxing day shopping deals for themselves, I have been taking advantage of the deep discounts that you can get on just about everything at this time of year to do my birthday present shopping for next year.  I have a number of nieces and nephews to …
