I can't believe how much time has passed since I last posted. But in all truth, not much has happened this summer, except perpetual sunshine, good weather (we are all still walking around in short sleeves), enjoying the outdoors, and hard work in and around the house.
That is, until today! It happened like this... I looked at kitten pictures on the Internet. A dangerous habit, as will be proven. The moment I came across the picture below, I was sold. Absolutely, completely and utterly in love. What is worse, these kittens are up for adoption right here in Creston... Need I say more?
How can anybody resist that cute little white thing in the middle with the dark ears, nose and tail? So today Mur and I phoned the lady who put up the ad. One thing lead to the next, and before we knew it we cuddled her in person (the kitten, not the lady!) and decided to adopt her. The kittens are only two weeks old, so we won't be able to take her home for several more weeks. We will go back to her house soon though to take more pictures!
What else happened? As I said, not much, except for a bit of good news. From the day we moved to this house almost 4 years ago now, not once has Mur been able to sit still. He has been so busy making this place pretty, from putting up wallpaper all over the place (not a common Canadian habit) to just about gutting the entire basement. He has not finished everything yet, but I am proud to say that except for little bits and pieces, the only area to finish now is the theatre in the basement, and even that is coming along nicely!
Not only the inside of the house is starting to look pretty, but we have planted a garden outside, and Murray created a workshop for himself as well. Here is a project he finished recently: the anteroom to the theatre. Only the baseboard is still missing.
And the not-yet finished theater.
Last but not least, I realize it is high time to update my loomknitting blog again... summer really slipped by so quickly that I was shocked to find out how long it's been sitting idle. Again, stay tuned... to be continued... I promise!
