House Tour - The First Floor

 I promised a house tour, so here it is. I have decided to break it up into three parts so things don't get too crazy. So today it is time for the first floor (or most of it anyway). Since we have only lived here two weeks, I can take no credit at all for how things look, the layout or anything like that. My in-laws did a great job taking care of this place and remodeling parts of it. I do have plans for paint in some parts, but I haven't gotten to that step yet.

The entryway. The door we most often use leads you here to the entry way/laundry area.

The first door you come too then leads to a bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet.
 The door at the end of the entry way leads to this. It was the office, but we are making it a toy room. But the filing cabinet will have to stay where it is because nobody wants to try and move that. We have some of the kids toys here and Joash has some things in the basement. Mostly things that he doesn't want Mataya to get into.
 Then you turn the corner and go down this hallway.
To the left is our kitchen and dinning area. We also have our computer in here. I love the open feel and all of the windows.

The kitchen part of the room.
 To the right is the living room. Again lots of windows and really open feel.
 Come back tomorrow for part 2 - upstairs!

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!

I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

 The little home is full of all sorts of Mo…
