I know I am not the only one asking that. One minute it was the beginning of July, next minute it's August. This month is an exciting month in that we will be finished our mortgage by the end of the month. Actually we only have four Friday's to pay, so in theory should be all done on August 23rd. However there are discharge fees etc in the amount of $325 to be paid, no idea when that is due, but by the end of the month we will be done. Bought our first house back in 1982, so have been stuck with a mortgage since then. Six and a bit years in Britain and twenty four and a bit years in Canada.
We have had some nice cool weather these past few days which has meant no a/c on. Just paid June 14th to July 16th hydro/electricity bill and that was $174.72. This next month's bill will be similar no doubt and totally expected for this time of the year. However if this cooler weather continues we may get a cheaper bill.
In the middle of winter I always get a craving for salad. So of course I have been craving soup this week. Had a ham bone in the freezer, so made ham, bean and veggie soup the other day. It's so good.
The centre island came back from the shop and it's all lovely and painted now. What a huge difference.
They even changed up the castors for me and they are safer and a lot nicer. The island has also been lowered and is now a similar height to the rest of the cabinets.
If you click on this link you will see a before photo of the island.
