This week's house/condo of the week is just plain awful. I can normally find something I like about a place, but honestly this condo is just plain awful, right down to the way it is all decorated, and it has just had $300,000 spent on it........where? I guess if you want to be downtown it has the convenience factor but otherwise, I wouldn't give you $100,000 for it, never mind 1 million!!!
The cottage of the week, well there wasn't one, they did an "office space," instead. I personally would find it hard to work in a space like that, as it is too "pretty." Also that space is way too tidy for any real work to get done, don't you think. Then in the summer how much work would you get done with a deck just outside the door?
***Deal Alert*** If you are in Canada and happen to be passing Canadian Tire they have a KitchenAid 2-quart saucepan on sale for $8.89, should be $39.99, it is worth every penny. I have one and it is a great size to have in the house. It's on sale from Friday through to Sunday and there is also a scratch and win the same days, where you can win a McCain frozen cake, or a $5 money off coupon, or a $5,000 gift card for Canadian Tire. I would be happy to win the $5 off card. I will be popping in as cling wrap, aluminum foil, magic eraser's and a few other things are all on sale for 89 cents each. Plus it's 10 x the bonus points for gas with the coupon this week as well at the Canadian Tire gas bar.
We went to the market again on Thursday and walked away with 12 bags of rolls for the freezer. More leeks, carrots, parsnips and broccoli. Also 7 white pine trees and we bought a gorgeous turn of the century chest of drawers with a mirror on the top from the antique market. I will take a photo when we get it cleaned up. Dh said as soon as I saw it my face just lit up, and he knew I wanted it. Also the guy that owned the booth happened to be there and knocked $35 off of it, so that was nice of him.
As far as I know I have emailed everyone who requested the crockpot recipe book. If I have missed you please let me know? I am hoping to get caught up with everyones blogs over the weekend. It's been a very busy week again around here.
