Absolutely stunning. That is such hard work, too. Hubby is out back digging the trench to lower the water line. He is sure the building inspector will make him do it anyway!

Anyway, I'm sneaking on my phone to pop in and say hello. Our house is still under construction. My husband has done a lot of work in this house over the years but this has definitely been the longest and most difficult project to live through. The wood floors are all sanded and finished. I'll post a picture of my dining room and living room. He also did the kitchen and den floors, all the same. Today my husband plans on putting up molding. Lots and lots of molding. Then lots of painting to do. Then we should finally be able to design the kitchen.
Other than that, I have been super busy with the kids and keeping up with my daily chores. The girls head back to school tomorrow. We have been getting appointments out of the way, shopping and even doing some trial runs to see where their new schools and classrooms will be. They are usually back to school before the 9th, this is kind of late for us. I'm looking forward to getting back to my normal routine.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!

I forgot to add that it looks like your cat is looking at his/her reflection in the floor!

It has been so much fun. Right now I am in a salute to songs from Christmas TV specials

Don't forget, Superfreak has a song a day thread also.

Following a wonderful trip home to Sault Ste. Marie, I have returned to my adopted home of Ottawa. I had a wonderful time with my family and visiting my grandmothers. Now, I guess, it's back to the real world - and trying to re-enter the real world via job searching.

Plans for today? Football is back! I plan to visit the gym for a couple hours late this morning and then sit on the couch and watch football for much of the day. I can't wait to see the Packers take the field once again. It's going to be an exciting season. I just hope some of the changes they made will be beneficial.

As for the weather, it is quite evident that we are nearing mid-September. The sun will be shining all day, but temperatures will only reach a high of 16c/61f. The forecast for the week has it warming up in Ottawa. Highs into the mid 20s/lower 80s by Wednesday. I'm not complaining though...

Excited to see the countdown drop. It will be something when we reach into the 50s later this week. Oh, and who can forget the hidden milestone of exactly two months until the beginning of the Christmas Season?! Another reason to look forward to Friday!

Have a great Sunday everyone!
glad to hear you had a great visit with family.
We here are having the fall feeling weather, down to 4c the other night. Yes, Christmas is really on the way!!

Got the house cleaned yesterday, bought tons of stuff, and we are ready to go....just two more things to do and we are ready for Little Bambina....we are waiting on the car seat to come in (supposed to be here tomorrow) and waiting on some furniture to arrive (supposed to be here Wednesday).

Super excited as we approach the 100 day mark....took several pictures last night...but I'm going to wait until the Christmas Blossoms thread opens...which is something else I can't wait to see....won't be long now....

Yall have a great day! See you around later this afternoon!
I can smell those ribs already!
Enjoy your day and have fun with the baby preps!
