I Did it !!!

My apologies for being away so long.
I've been a very busy girl. 


I'm writing this, sitting at my kitchen table, directly from the woodlot.... I still have a lot of work to do inside and out, but I've been living in my brand spanking new home for about a week now.


Living on My Land... No Words <3

Thank you guys for the comments and emails you sent me, since I went AWOL a little while back. It's nice to be missed. I miss you guys too... I've just been a little "preoccupied" and now you know why ;-)

Fun Times :P


No, I'm not on vacation...
but I did get to wade in inches of water a couple weeks ago.
Straight off my bed as my feet hit the floor !!!

Consider mild temperatures last November, quick snow melt and excessive rain, along with living in a "renovated" basement apartment of a half century old building, all of which adds up to a recipe for disaster. A perfect storm of epic proportions, uh... not so much... more like, at a minor scale, thank God... but none the less, left me running around in my underwear, frantically trying to gain control of the situation.

I give justified praise to my spin mop, for obvious reasons, and the not so subtle hills and valleys of the original floor, hiding under the new "pretend slate" vinyl. Despite the fact that everything is on one level, the kitchen and a few room corners remained dry, will the rest of the apartment was drenched in melted snirt, a couple inches deep in most of the bedrooms, living room, and bathroom. I had started packing for the move, and my daughter's room still had boxes on the floor, that hadn't made it out to her new life yet. Cardboard does love water... damn it! But I could breathe a sigh of relief as I noticed that the high spots on the floor saved a few items from soaking in the lovely moat, that appeared in my home overnight. 

I was able to save most it, and didn't forget to count my blessings... like the fact that I have a non-leaking roof over my head, and a septic system that is not backing up every couple years. Been there, done that.... Moving on.

Speaking of snirt... here's a pic I took a few weeks ago at the mall parking lot.


Canadian Snirt Mountain ~ Ain't it lovely !!

I'm happy to say, the apartment is still dry, and most of the snirt is gone bye now.  I actually see a few strands of green, way way over there, across the apartment parking lot. About time!

I know, I know... A lot of you have leaves in your trees :/
So? How many times have you mowed so far? :P ;-)

Happy Easter !!!


Finally Sunshine !!! :-)

The past couple of days have been really nice, as far as the weather goes. I drove all the way up my driveway at the woodlot for the first time in months. It was nice to spend the day out there, and just take time to "breathe".
