…helps keep the blues away!!!
My “One Little Word” that I had such good intentions on working on, kind of fell by the wayside but I have been thinking of today as the beginning of a fresh new start…I’m taking ownership of my issues and instead of them controlling me, I’m going to control them.
I had this big, boring blog of paragraphs all typed out about my personal issues with depression, weight and still pending surgery, but I decided that I’d rather share my some of my photos from our camping trip last week. So without further ado, let me share with you some of the sights and feathered friends I had the pleasure of enjoying.

It’s done! We have yet, another kitchen reno under our belts, our fourth if anyone is counting. We couldn’t be happier with the results but now we look at the rest of the house thinking how plain and boring it looks…I see more projects in our future!!

No, I’m not Tim “The Toolman” Taylor but I have been helping my husband with renovation our kitchen. Unfortunately I haven’t been as much help as I would have liked to but I’ve been dealing with a health issue which has meant an ultrasound, MRI and now an impending surgery…how fun. I am however, still working on my one little word, just as much as I had planned.
Anywho…..our kitchen is coming along very nicely even working with a very tight and frugal budget. Thank goodness both hubby and I are pretty handy and we can do everything ourselves. So far we had rebuilt a wall, moved some cupboards around, resituated the fridge, laid new flooring, countertop, backsplash (which I’m still trying to like), replaced baseboards and painted the walls. The last couple of days, under cabinet lighting has been installed with my help and pretty much all that is left is to paint the cupboards.
Rebuilding of a wall
New floor and baseboard
New counter and backsplash
Yellow is the new wall colour. The moulding is also new so we could separate colours on the vaulted ceiling which connects to our living room.
I will be sharing the finished product with before and after photos and hopefully once I am back on my feet feeling better, I will have more exciting photos to share….this crazy bird lady is suffering some major cabin fever!
