As I sit by the door waiting in vain for my new laptop cord to arrive, I decided to update the blog. My husband told me this morning that it's been three whole days since I posted! Three days! This is from the husband who I am with approximately 22 hours of every day. Babe, you KNOW what happened this weekend. You were there. Nevertheless, here is part one: Canada Day:
We had such fun at my Mom and Dad's for Canada Day. They decorated with lots of red and white-- flags, balloons, etc, and the kids all had Canada temporary tatoos-- along with some of the adults.
There was delicious food, including my grandmother's famous cabbage rolls (I always call dibs on the leftovers) and my sister's yummy cupcakes-- decked out in red and white with letters on them to spell Canada Day. Needless to say, they were a hit with the kids. (Not so much a hit with us once it was clear the sugar high was going to keep them up till 9:30! lol)
We all had to wear red and white, if possible. Q had a t-shirt that came with his subscription to The Economist.
In case you didn't catch it, that's a little economist humour. And this is a little more economist humour:
And this sweet boy, my nephew Carson, turned three on the 29th:
What a cutie!
While we were gone there was work being done at home. The pulls are now installed in the kitchen. I love them. I can't believe I'm actually writing this, but we have SIX different kinds of pulls in the kitchen! lol! 4 styles, two of which are in different sizes. My favourites are these metal "thumbprint" pulls on the uppers:
These are all brushed nickel handles and pulls made by Richelieu. There are different pulls on the island, to distinguish it further from the rest of the kitchen:
(A little fuzzy, sorry.)
More kitchen photos to come, as well as an update from the rest of the weekend!
