Summer Fun

with one comment

Tiling last week and mostly done.   Kind of fun to do but had to move furniture from here to there and back to get it done.  Books were the hardest to move.

Moved to dump truck loads of gravel over two days.  That was not fun.   With just a shovel it took a while.  Split about half a cord of wood by hand.  Will get the chain saw out shortly to get the next half cord ready for splitting.

At least now the house is semi presentable.   Now back to outdoor stuff and Toronto to do some boat work next week.

  1. Wow it looks so good Cam! Good for you.

    Well I’m back at work again. But with a plan! I will be retiring in less than 2 years now! Then I will finish work on the Coxwell house and once that is done we plan to buy a little place in pei (acreage) and rent the cowell house out. We should get on just fine and the nice part is, the money from Coxwell will pay off both mortgages! 🙂

    I am going to become a ‘creative farmer’ lol. (that means mostly i want to paint and draw in my vege plot…..) Paul can deal with the chickens and whatever else he wants to have!!

    I CANT WAIT!!!!

    Every time I’m losing it here I just think of that! hahha. whatever gets you through the day….

    The herons are beautiful! Wow. I saw a night heron in Crothers Woods (Don Valley) last spring…so cool! And a couple of owls and lots of red-tailed hawks…

    Anyways keep posting…it helps get me through the days here!!! I am living vicariously through you for the next 2 years….

    have a good weekend on the boat!
