I found this cabinet in Value Village in Ottawa when I was visiting my daughter. I just loved it. I love it even more since I painted it.
Guess who's going to see Simple Minds at the end of September?
I stopped by one of my favourite places on the way home from work this morning. I miss the water. I don't do anywhere near enough fun stuff that I want to do. The boring everyday stuff gets in the way.
I need to change that!!
This is a night stand that I got at Value Village
I really like the vintage, distressed look in furniture. My hubby and I have been painting a lot of it.
We found this dresser at a yard sale.
Today was a BUSY day!
I did errands and grocery shopping early in the morning. Then I spent the better part of the day in the kitchen- cooking. I made homemade dog food (ground beef, peppers, spinach, broccoli and a few blueberries) and liver dog treats. That went into our brand new freezer!
I cut up a huge amount of vegetables for the week: celery, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, peppers. I roasted potatoes and cauliflower and made two loaves of meatloaf- which I put into containers for the freezer for a few dinners over the week.
My daughter graduated from University two weeks ago. What an accomplishment.
I thought I would do a few comparisons.
This is me on the left, 29 years ago, when I graduated from Nursing School. I was two weeks shy of 23 years old. My daughter, on the right, is 23 and just finished her architectural history degree.
This is my dad and me when I was 7 or 8. He died when I was 12.
November 14, 1922 - June 22, 1979
39 years without my dad.
