Our little Princess and other things...........

Went down to see Our little Princess and the family on Tuesday.  She is growing so much and she is getting so much strength in here neck, so her head is not as wobbly.

She sleeps through the night and averages around 14 hours of sleep in twenty four hours.  She will be three months old on Friday.  Time is certainly flying by.  She does not like being on her tummy and as she has a little reflux prefers to be sitting upright.  She is also a little talker and here she is talking to her dolly.

The reason I went down to Brampton, is that I was meeting dh in Mississauga to see about ordering the counter tops for the kitchen.  This is what we bought:

We should have them in a couple of weeks.  I love granite but can't afford the prices, so laminate is an affordable option.  Regardless removing the tiles worktop is a good thing, as it is so unhygienic , with all those grout lines.

I pulled out the turkey carcass from Easter and boiled it up for the broth and I got all this meat from it:


Made a turkey, rice and corn chowder with it.  It's amazing how much more meat you can pick off the bones when you boil it up.

I have just posted another book review here  It's a Harlequin book and it was very, very good!

Sweet Nitara appears she is going to be quite the thinker from her photos. You have been a busy woman. With snow again the soup will perfect to keep the cold from your bones. Sigh, will Winter ever end?

Oh, your granddaughter is so cute!!

I think your new counter is going to be gorgeous.

Do;t feel bad about not affording the granite. I have heard it requires a bit of upkeep beyond keeping it clean and tidy. My sister-in-law has new counters and I will watching to see how long it looks good.

Oh what a sweety ! I remember Brampton when it was a small farming town , now it is a huge city and that's why we moved to crowded . I moved from a farm in Caledon/ Orangeville area to Brampton it got to big and now am in a country valley village south west of Brampton . Our boy's are in Brampton . Granite can be tricky to look after I have heard a lot of people wish they never had got them as they aren't that durable so no worries I think the counters you picked are nice and besides durable counters are better for every day use then for just looks . It has been pouring all day here with the odd storm rumbling around ! Spring is here in South western Ontario finally ! Have a good day !

Nitara is a sweet, adorable little girl. Can't believe she is three months' old already. I love her outfit.

Fun looking at countertops. I can't wait to start doing things on our kitchen but it's going to be a while.

Also, that's a great tip on the chicken meat. Do you have a recipe for the chowder?

Have a good one Gill.

Such a cutie. :)

Didn't you have a pic up of the laminate you had chosen? If so, for some reason it is not popping up today.

I meant to tell you last night that I really like what you had chosen.

Not even the picture of Nitara...though it almost does. The square pops up for just a second and then it disappears...I wonder if it is my computer or blogger? May go check on hubby's computer.

Okay--about the dozenth try got the photos.

One more crazy comment...the laminate you chose--I would love to have that in fabric!
