A few more photos from the new house.

I finally got the dining room put together today.  The room is only 10 feet by 15 feet, so it is a little bit of a squish, but overall it will work out just fine.  Our neighbours den/second bedroom looks into this room.
 We had the bottom of the Welsh Dresser refinished to update the look.  To see the before look at the fourth and fifth photo on this post.  I love the distressed look that they did and we will eventually replace the pine side chairs with black distressed ones to match the end chairs we bought when we bought the table.
This is the breakfast area.  Don't you love our view of the big front loader!!! 
 I found a place for my hall table.  I have had to throw out some of the flowers from the arrangement, but should get a few more days out of the rest.
 We found the perfect bench for the front hall as we are all getting too old and need to sit down to put our shoes on!!  Paid less than $150 for this leather look one out of Leon's.  Got the Union Jack cushion from Bed, Bath and Beyond.  They had other flag ones as well.  Thinking about getting a Canadian one to go on the bench as well.
 This is looking from the door to the garage to the breakfast area.  It's beginning to look like home with all the ornaments and pictures.
I did some baking today as well.  Had to read the instruction book first to figure out how to turn the oven on!!  I had mixed results with my baking, some of the cookies were over done and some under cooked.  I haven't cooked with a convection oven before.  So I guess it will take time to get used to it.

So happy for you!!!
I find convection is much hotter and faster...I still have not totally gotten used to mine after 12 years!! I think I just like the slower method...

Your new home looks lovely. Maybe once you get the hang of your new stove, you could do some more recipe posts, I always enjoyed seeing what you were making.

I have a new stove too with convection. Finding it hard to gauge cooking times as well.
