Our stuff arrived and we've been working for the last 3 days on putting it all together and organizing the office. Whenever I do renos I get so frustrated because I'm not as tall or as strong as I'd like to be. I need to work on that. Anyone have a leg stretcher I can borrow?
Thankfully our friend Jay was in town from Montreal ... and he and our friend Stu came over for coffee and I put them to work. I am so thankful for their help because I am no where near tall enough to do anything that was required.
Dick in a box?? :)
I let the boys visit and work on the units ...
... and went into the kitchen to start working on a "Thank you for helping us" lunch. I had almost no food in the house but I did have red lentils so I went about making Raunch Red Lentil Soup. Of course the kitchen was full of Ikea stuff that was too heavy for me to move so I had to work around the mess as I cooked (BTW - I'm wearing gloves to cut a jalapeno pepper).
mmmmmm. Soup. I also threw some Better Than Butter Tarts into the oven for the boys ... The recipe for this is in the new calendar. This stud is looking for a stud...
Can't show you the finished product just yet ... cause we're still working on it. Ugh.
In other news ... Look at this cute travel shaver!! My in-laws came over this weekend for a visit and a woman that my Mother In Law works with gave her this vintage travel shaver to give to me because she knows how much I like kitchy things. Thank you!! I love it.
How cute!!How was your New Years? Did you party? I was in my pajamas and brushing my teeth at 11:55pm. Gerry and I had a little count-down and a kiss at about 12:02am before we hit the sheets exhausted.
