Wow, since my last post when we were improving the backyard at Markham we have sold the house and moved to a townhouse!

Everything happened so fast - after the County came into the yard and cut back our willow without our knowledge, we realized we needed to go...the dog walkers pushed us over the edge. Of course, the five flights of stairs was a major factor too! Happily it turned out to be the right decision and this house will be perfect for us going forward. 

Joey is seven and a half months old and now weighs 6.2 pounds. He had a very bad experience with Vectra 3D on Tuesday and we thought we had lost him but he's slowly coming back to normal...he's scheduled to be neutered on September 11. He's a big boy now!

We got our awning project approved and it should be installed sometime in October. I've ordered the plantation shutters and they should hopefully be ready soon. The new refrigerator comes on September 12, Joel will be building us a new mantel to replace the puny existing one (he's already built us a bookcase shelf for the TV). Once these things are done, the house will be perfect!

Today I'm going to continue finding places for the remaining pictures and decorative objects - it's not as much as it has been! Richard put up the new kitchen fixture last night and Will is going to use the more modern one at his house. It's starting to look like home.

Hopefully I'll start having time to get back into Joomla again. It's been a couple of months and I probably have a lot to re-learn!
