My kitchen isn't this big. Maybe someday down the road. Yours will look lovely.

Probably too big for the two of us but we like to entertain and have cookouts. Also, my Mom can’t do stairs any longer so we have a nice room if needed for her on first floor. We have a Guest Suite upstairs for friend and family visits. We decided to this because we really needed the extra garage space. I think we got a little carried away.

The boss and I took a break from. Bikeweek today and had a final meeting with the design center to tidy up are choices for our new home. So much to take in. Here are some of our picks for the new house. We decided to go with a different color on cabinets for the Island.

It all looks very nice.    I have similar pebble title in my Master bathroom shower.    I love it.   

I personally like the look of island being different.     I also like having lower cabinets be different color than upper cabinets then tie it all together with the island.    

It is so fun to pick out everything then be surprised several months when the finishes are installed and you see for the first time.

Oh, and I might have a carbon monoxide leak.  The alarm company replaced my detector last week and last night it was flashing red.  I'm talking to the alarm company now.  Freakin; 2021!

Oh no, I hope all is well.    Hopefully no leaks and just an alarm error.

I have green eyes and the pharmacist said, the drops might turn my eyes brown.  Boo!  Will I still be Irish without my green eyes? 😁  The Divina cruise includes an overnight at their private island, so, that is something to look forward to.  And, it goes to Cozumel.  If I can get up the stairs to Coconuts, I'll hop then.  If not, maybe they'll bring ceviche and a margarita to the bus. 🤪 I hate to miss that view, though.

Maureen, your cruise reviews/posts always made me chuckle.  One photo of you in Cozumel stands out in my mind. Can't be too descriptive but you were in Senor Frog leaning real close to a wooden statue. 🤐 

Enjoy your upcoming cruises.

That was just one of many classic photos. Several, as I recall, seemed to involve a particular finger in her hand.

@Milwaukee Eightthat’s a great color board. Wonderful selections by you and the Boss. Having an interior designer was the best choice we made when we did our house. Saved my head a million aches. I like the exterior drafts of the house as well.

Did her eyes change?

 

That's my question, lol. They also said my lashes might get thicker. My dumb luck, the lashes will stay the same and the hair under my arms will grow thick and lustrous.  Why is that hair still dark brown, but, my head is completely white?

Does the tequila taste anything like the Castries Peanut Rum? I read on Sid’s thread that there is a way to vote every hour or something. I see you also don’t have a link in your signature to your blog like Saint Greg does.

 

I've never had that rum. The rules say you can only vote once, that's what I've done. My conscience is clean. I don't have an actual blog, just created one post for that thing.

I'd post it here, but, now that Bob is not moderating,  I'm not sure it would be allowed. There is a place you can see it,  though..

A few photos, what a difference of 24 hours makes. The “today pics” were from this morning. This afternoon almost all the snow was gone. Spring is near.
 

Yesterday.

And a storm this afternoon. Was 17C for a high. We threw the baseball with Owen for a while after school.

I’m terrible at this stuff and not good with colors. We depended on the Design lady a ton. Lol

Had a beautiful rainbow, but no rain, as we walked to the restaurant on the beach, for our supper.

Also walked by a place that I will never darken their door.

I took my mom’s recycling down for her, and I was rewarded with an amazing sunset.

It just got better the further down the laneway I went.

The finale; the neighbour’s field had a pond of melted snow. The wind is so strong the pond had wavelets.  Wonderful end to the day.

Today was a beautiful spring teaser.  Nice sunny 75 degree day.  Working from home has its advantages.  I was able to do some yard cleanup for 1.5 hours then we bought out of shed some basic patio furniture.  I worked on laptop on patio for a bit then we went for a nice walk around the neighborhood.  

Sure felt good feeling warm sun again. 

Tomorrow back to the 50s.
