still under construction

Day 16 of our renovations and I love my house...i love my house...i love my house...notice the sarcasm dripping between the dots? Why oh why did we tackle such a project. We have a very old house the previous owner put on a new basement and NOTHING is square. not even my windows! Know how i can tell? The dust lays all to one side! Well perhaps the wind has a play in that. Even the contractor we hired to help us with the finicky drywall work says we should be in the guiness book of world records for the most amount of putty used in the smallest square footage!
I love my house...i love my get the idea. During the renos Tim and i escaped to Lethbridge to visit with family for 4 days and it was nice to get out of the drywall dust! While there my very brave sister in law offered to help me paint! Crazy girl, she must have had a few slokies or something! Pardon my butchered attempt at writing a dutch word for "drinks."
So this honorable woman came to our humble abode and chuckled at my disaray! Then off to work.....and work she can! She is a slave driver. My coffee time got cut in half! Half i say! But we did get much done! Thankyou Bernita! i am indebted to your patience and willingness to help out! Until i blog again dear readers, cough couch, excuse me i tried to dust off my desk while typing.

It all started out with a birthday wish, i asked Tim for a new fancy shmancy frying pan for my birthday from costco. Well, it turns out i was spoiled with a gift certificate to a flooring store instead. So i picked out new lino to rid myself of the sad-pulled apart hard to clean laminate flooring i had before. Well after the lino quote tim asked if we should go for a fireplace quote seeing the floor was out anyway why not keep renoing? right? WRONG! now i have a wall coming out, the part above the kitchen cuboards is out, the trim is all going, the tile in the bathroom is being stripped out and new paint goes on next week. I am the most spoiled girl on this side of Ponoka, maybe all the east side of hwy 2 even! Anyway here are a few pics for you to enjoy! Maybe next year if i ask for the frying pan again i'll get a new lawnmower.....hey a girl can dream right?
