Steady Progress and Summer Holidays!

Slowly but surely we have been making some progress in our house! Most of the Bedrooms upstairs have their pine flooring down and have been painted, our dad has been installing the radiators and doors in some rooms, the tiling is done upstairs, all the room's are painted, light fixtures have been going up (though slowed because our handy electrician/grandpa has been in England for the past 2 weeks), yes it finally seems possible that we might move in by the end of July sometime. 




This is our property looking North-East and it looked so beautiful last night after being freshly cut.


Wild roses are found all over Canada but is considered Alberta's Provincial Flower and it grows all over the perimeter of our "Hundred Acre Woods," which surrounds our house in a "U" shape from north to east to south.

My first week of summer holidays have been interesting…it's rather gloomy and windy out today but we have had some warm days sometimes even getting up to 26+ degrees Celsius. On Saturday us kids (Christian, Blythe, Calder and I) all went out to our cabin on the lake and spent the day suntanning/swimming in the waves. It was unfortunately quite windy that day but the sun was warm. On Sunday however our parents joined us and it was quite cold. 
Hopefully this weekend is better, I'll try and take my camera and snap some pictures of our Canada Day Weekend festivities! We'll surely be clad in our nations colours, red and white. I might even be able to snap some pictures of the Fire Works that the campground has not far from our cabin.
I hope you have a wonderful Canada Day Long Weekend and if you don't live in Canada I hope the weekend's good to you. (I think people in America might have a long Fourth of July weekend…or maybe it's the weekend after…I don't know.)
Anyway I'll be back with some pictures of that, ta ta for now!


  1. Your room is looking great! Can't wait to see it all finished. Love you!

    1. I know I can't wait to set up my bed and everything, there is so much stuff that we have had FOREVER that's just been sitting in our storage room at our old house and here, so it will be nice to finally see everything together :)
