Color on the Walls

When we got back from Manitoba the sheetrock was done and ready for the last coat of primer then ready to paint. Mike got right to work on it. The first picture is the kitchen/dining room. Mike and Jimmy have been putting up the pine tongue & groove boards on the ceiling...very labor intensive but boy are they pretty!!

The kitchen again, it looks kind of green in this picture, but is blue like in the one above.

The Master Bedroom. The back wall is Pumpkin Spice. The jury is still out on that choice but we are going to see how we like it with the pine ceilings and wood floor. I think it is growing on me though.

Master Bathroom...this is a deeper grayer blue than the kitchen.

The dormers in the Living Room the walls are Navajo White. I am loving the pine boards on the ceilings!

The guest bathroom is a nice medium green...kind of hard to see in these pictures.

There is still the seemingly never ending touch ups to the paint that need done...but for the most part it is done.

A Wonderful Thanksgiving Surprise....I'm going to be a Gramma!!!

We decided to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with Kelly and Ryan, so we packed up the dogs and set off across the Rockies and the Prairies to their home unaware of the wonderful surprise they had waiting for us. Amid the toasts of Thanksgiving, Kelly shared that she was going to have our first Grandbaby!! A happier moment I cannot recall!! A Baby! May!

Life gets no better than this!

Kelly made a beautiful feast of turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, turnips & carrots, mashed potatoes and gravy and all the trimmings....I must admit I could hardly taste my food, so full were my thoughts of the upcoming event!

Their new harvest table and chairs arrived just in time for the first of many holiday and family dinners around it. She had it beautifully usual.

A huge turkey...roasted to perfection...

and 3 delicious pies...Ryan's apple, pumpkin and coconut cream.

Their Front Door...Love the little Crow on the pumpkin!

A walk along the endless beach of Lake Manitoba.
