so I guess I will just chit chat about this and that.
Friday was a dreary wet day and very foggy. However on a positive note the temperature was above freezing and at least the snow is starting to melt. Mind you with the rain comes the mud, and that is one job we must do, get a load of gravel for the driveway to cover up the dirt. I still haven't seen any of my bulbs popping through the dirt yet, but at least I can see nearly all the gardens now.
We finally got the quotes in for the work we want done in the house this year. Dh is working six/seven days a week at the moment, and that will continue until at least June. So we are getting a company to finish drywalling the attic, and do the taping, mudding and sanding. They will also be sorting out our bedroom ceiling as well at the same time. We have given them the go ahead with that, so that should be done in the next week or two.
The other main job we want done is some work in the old basement and two new windows in the new basement. We haven't given the go ahead on that job yet, as that is a big and expensive job that is labour intensive and although we need to do the work, spending that amount of money frightens me. I do think we will go ahead with it, but that work won't be done until sometime in April when the weather turns a bit warmer.
Now I am not sure how many Ontario readers I have? If anyone in Ontario shops in the Zehrs grocery store's would you mind saving your grocery store cash receipts for me. We are fund raising at the church I go to and one of the fund raising things is collecting the Zehrs receipts.
It's March break here in Ontario this coming week, so I saw on the news that Toronto airport was super busy with people escaping the winter for more sunny destinations.
Also on Saturday night/Sunday morning the clocks move forward, as its Daylight Savings Time. We used to be a week behind Britain, but the USA decided to change that, and of course we Canadians followed suit......
I took this photo of a wall in Meaford last September, just thought I'd show you it.
