What I did on Christmas vacation

Monday, 02 January 2012 11:30

Remember when you were a kid and the school assignment was to write a report of what you did on vacation?  Well, here goes...

Brenda and I decided that we needed to redo the countertops that had to be trimmed to get the new stove to fit.  So before Christmas we ordered the supplies to laminate new countertops. 

The day after Christmas we headed to the lumber yard to get the particle board to build the countertops, and got started.  Here are some before and after pictures.

After the wine bar was done we moved on to the larger counters...

Then of course there was a bit of a distraction when a guy on a bike went riding past on the lake... a little odd.

Back to work, and on to the hardest part.  installing the under mount sink, and the countertop with the stove cutout.

We finished in time to celebrate the new year!

Happy New Year!

And we made some home made cavatelli.

White Christmas?

I captured this image from the tuppercam yesterday.  A little dusting of snow on the newly frozen lake.  Maybe we will have a white Christmas

Goodbye old friend.  You served us well for 13 years... even if Matthew did call you a crappy old stove.

Happy 100th Birthday

I love Lucy and she loves me
We're as happy as two can be
Sometimes we quarrel but then
How we love making up again

Lucy kisses like no one can
She's my Mrs. and I'm her man
And life is heaven you see
'cause I love Lucy
Yes I love Lucy
and Lucy loves me

Yellow Visitors

Tuesday, 02 August 2011 07:22

Early one morning last week we had a couple of visitors.  Surprisingly Desi and Lucy didn't notice these two hanging out on the fence, and in the garden.  I think they were picking bugs out of the garden for breakfast.  I was able to snap a couple of pictures of the 2 American Goldfinch that hung around for a while.

2 American Goldfinch

From Wikipedia:

The American Goldfinch (Carduelis tristis), also known as the Eastern Goldfinch and Wild Canary, is a small North American bird in the finch family. It is migratory, ranging from mid-Alberta to North Carolina during the breeding season, and from just south of the Canadian border to Mexico during the winter.

The only finch in its subfamily which undergoes a complete molt, the American Goldfinch displays sexual dimorphism in its coloration; the male is a vibrant yellow in the summer and an olive color during the winter months, while the female is a dull yellow-brown shade which brightens only slightly during the summer. The male displays brightly colored plumage during the breeding season to attract a mate.
