This is just too funny…I have to share it..LOL! DH saw the guy who was doing our reno’s somewhere this morning and told him not to come down our driveway as it was really slick….then he said “unless you get a real truck”….now the guy who is doing the reno’s drives a new jeep and DH is a dodge deisel man….and the Jeep man got a little bent outta shape about that comment although DH was only teasing….he’s a world famous teaser….LOL.
So……..along comes the reno guy, in the Jeep and Zoooooooooooom…..down the driveway he comes….no problemo!!!!!!


Well along comes Mr. Dodge Diesel man a few hours later and wouldn’t you know it…..he slid right off the top side of the driveway……LMAO!!!!!


And so here is Jeep guy in my Toyota, trying to pull Dodge deisel guy outta the boooooosh!!!!lol (and that girl who is watching is my best friend who’s older Jeep has been stuck in my driveway for two days….so she’s borrowing my Toyota..LOL).



As it ended up….my Toyota doesn’t have a trailer hitch but the neghbour happened upon us hillbilly’s and HE had a trailer hitch so he ended up pulling Deisel guy out ……with a Ford..LMAO!!!!!! 🙂

So all in all, no harm done although there was a little testosterone flying around for a while… girls were just rolling our eyes and giggling at them all…..HAHAHAH!!!!!! And then dd and Rosie had a great play in the snow!!




Here’s what I’ve made so far….enjoy!!

Every once in a while you know you’ve got a killer shot on your camera and can’t wait to see if it turned out, well this is one of those photos!!!! It was early in the morning, the sun was coming up and I came down the stairs to my office to see this out my window….OH WOW!!!!! So I grabbed the camera and took this from inside the windows…lol. (it was -6 celcius and I wasn’t dressed yet so no way was I going outside…lol)
Don’t you just love it when mother nature hands you a slice of heaven!!!!!

….do NOT ever try to do reno’s in the middle of Jan. in Canada again!!! 🙂
We have been buried in dusk and caulking for almost two weeks now, and it has been down to -5 celcius every night so I can’t even open the windows at night to get rid of the sealant smells etc etc….blech!!!!! On top of that I have a nasty cold, so between that and my house being upside down and MESSY and DUSTY and waaaaay out of sorts I am getting more than a little cranky…lol….and I know the worst and messiest part is yet to come….patching respraying the ceiling in our office which is in a main living section of the house….grrrrr!!!!!
I know that when all is said and done it will look so nice in here but then….we will list it for sale ….which means more people traipsing through my house….ughhhhhh!!!! So for now I just keep telling myself….go with the flow Wendy….go with the flow….lol!!!!! Oh and here’s a pic of my master bathroom all cleaned, caulked, sealed, painted and spiffy’d up!!!! 🙂
Our walk in shower is HUGE and they had a dumb narrow plastic block wall just inside the doorway on the right which had gotten water under it and was a mess with mildew…needless to say it was ripped outta there….lol….it didn’t have to be there anyways!!!





…using the Scrapbooking Fanatics Jan. kit. Loved playing with this Prima Paintable “snowflakes” paper…


You are a Hippie

You are a total hippie. While you may not wear birks or smell of incense, you have the soul of a hippie.
You don’t trust authority, and you do as you please. You’re willing to take a stand, even when what you believe isn’t popular.You like to experiment with ideas, lifestyles, and different subcultures.
You always gravitate toward what’s radical and subversive. Normal, mainstream culture doesn’t really resonate with you.
