The work on the house continues…but more exciting (for me) now. You can see a new all glass door (middle of photo at back) that leads to the backyard, from the dining room, and on the right, a platform has been created for a propane fireplace that will go around that corner. The unit won’t be in till February, but I can see it in my mind’s eye. Before the framing was all done, I couldn’t quite “see” anything! Frank, of course, the creator of the changes, the blueprint maker, can visualize, conceptualize and fantasize about it all.

The best news is that the steps to my studio have been created. This is the reason that the renovations started…to move the kitchen wall on the right, over, to make room for full size (legal, safe) stairs to the attic space…now only to be referred to as Barb’s studio!


Speaking of…we will be renting here until the end of February, so I set myself up in our bedroom to have a place to sew, and paint. Didn’t want to wait until March!


We also hung outdoor ornaments on the lovely Smoke Tree on the front lawn of the rental, and put a spotlight on it. So grateful to have a home, when you think of all the refugees arriving right now!   My grandparents and mother immigrated from Poland… my dad immigrated after WW2…Frank came from Holland. Immigrants. Happy to be Canadian.
