Monkey's and houses..........

I am a member of Fab Find and this was on the site yesterday and thought it was fun:


Harmony Monkeys


We’re looking to start a choir. We don’t do anything but sit in our cage at the zoo anyway, so we thought we’d try and come up with a way to get visitors to throw us coins instead of food. We want to save up enough to buy our way out of this jail cell. We practice every night and perform everyday, except Wednesdays. On Wednesdays they bathe us and we’re too depressed and humiliated to sing after that. (If you’ve ever had a fire hose hit every part of you body, you already know why.) They may call us howler monkeys but we happen to think we sound a lot more like harmony monkeys. If you’re ready to join our cause come by around midnight and let us hear your pipes.           


Thanks to Fab Find for the above, but I won't be joining the choir!!!


This week's home of the week, is gorgeous, I could just move in and not change a thing.  I would have liked to see the back of the house as it says there is very little outside space, but you're right in the thick of things in downtown Toronto.  We would never be able to afford it, but if it were given to me, I wouldn't say no!!!


The condo of the week, isn't my cup of tea.  If you read the comments they are both informative and funny, especially the "Miami Vice," one.  My favourite colour is red, but the whole red and white theme seems very outdated to me?   Also who on earth can afford $1,500 a month on condo fees?


Update on the driveway: The guys came by and took a blow torch to all the weeds, and then put weed killer on them.  Add that to the weed killer I put on, you would think they would die?


Got a fair bit of weeding done in the flower gardens yesterday.  Still have a ways to go, but I feel as though I am making progress at last.


Are you all making a start with your garden?

I am also making progress in my garden. Last week worked on the flower beds around the deck.
Yesterday, I trimed and cut the front lawn, weeded and moved some Mums in the flower bed. Ouch!! My legs are feeling it this a.m.
The soil in the back garden has a lot of clay in it, so it is either too wet and sticky or baked hard like a brick. At the present time I need rain as it is very dry and like the latter.
The flowers around my pond are beautiful, all blue, light purple and white with a few pink tulips here and there.
Have a great day.

I was hoping you would put up a home and condo of the week, I really enjoy them! I'm with you on this one: love the house, don't like the condo.

I did not care for the condo...I did like the home, but thought the fireplace kind of odd...the one at the end of the second row of photos...

My husband is saying t he same thing about the bermuda grass coming up in the front flower bed. Nothing is going to kill this stuff, I think he should go ahead and make friends with it.
