Sunny Sunday

Just a quick post on this Sunny Sunday morning, my comment form seems to be working again finally (something to do with the third party cookie setting?).
Having got back from an early morning walk to the top of the hill with Craig (he rarely joins me, but today, out of the blue decided to which made me happy) We chatted on the uphill, took in the panoramic view of the valley at the top and then half jogged down the hill trying to outrun the hungry deer fly, black fly and mosquitoes!! Once they get the scent I'm sure they signal to their friends and family that breakfast is being served!
Picking a punnet of slightly warm strawberries for our breakfast, from the garden and some fresh dewy crisp romaine lettuce leaves for a lunchtime salad, we sipped bowls of cafe au-lait on the deck - what a perfect start to a Sunday morning.
Now as Craig is planning his painting, gardening and other daily to-do stuff I am catching up on here before making a start on some sewing, mowing, hanging out the washing and helping Jemma with her furniture painting project.
Yesterday we both helped out at a friend's first auction, serving tea, coffee and grilling hot dogs, it was an interesting morning. Jemma bid on two items for her apartment, this little table on wheels, for her walk in closet and a picture frame.
Now she only has to find a small dining table and a couple of chairs to be all set furniture wise.
Meeting up with Brian in the city last week to sign all the rental papers and finalise insurance.
Here is a little sneak peak at her new humble abode, before she makes it look pretty and personalised.
The walk-in closet,
the lounge/bedroom,
the kitchen,

and finally, the bathroom (sorry Amber!)

  1. Super Dooper! It all looks amazing. So pleased Jemma has got her new pad sorted out. It looks wonderful! I am sure she will be very happy there. I know I would be!
    Thank you so much for doing the curtain, it looks wonderful. Now all I need is more time to paint the door! The light has been fitted in the washroom. It is all coming together.

  2. What a cute little pad - I bet she is so excited. Walk in dressing room is my idea of a Palace - so well done!!!!!!

  3. Hazel, Great to find your post, sorry it's taken me 6 days! Today is my catch-up day, been busy the last few days :)
    Wishing Jemma much happiness in her new 'home' away from home <3
    Lots of love to you all
