waiting for the fish to bite

12 September 2014 - a bush seems like a great place to wait

grass works, too

the fish seem to be taking their time
Nigel and I tagged along with family on a fishing expedition to the river.  You can't tell from the pictures, but Nigel was more interested in interrupting the fishing.

Extra pictures on Facebook.

The Great Remodel of 2014 begins...

9 September 2014 - Nigel and I investigate the partially demolished stairs leading to the future master bedroom suite.

9 September 2014 - stairs, looking from below, further along in the demolition and reconstruction.

6 September 2014 - Nigel in the future master bedroom suite.

6 September 2014 - looking the other way, toward the stairs.

7 September 2014 - Nigel in the kitchen area, which we also plan to spiff up.  He's already exhausted by the remodel, and it's just gotten started.

9 September 2014 - the same kitchen area, but with part of the cabinets removed to make room for the improved staircase going up to the second floor.
I've quickly realized that home remodeling pictures are only interesting if Nigel's in them, so I'll try and include him as much as possible :)

back from a walk...


26 August 2014
Nigel was in adventure mode this morning, taking me on a rather extended ramble to streets hitherto unseen by us.  He's been gradually mapping out the neighborhood ever since we moved here.

He has a much better sense of direction than me (ok, that doesn't take much, but his is pretty amazing), and an uncanny (or maybe typical dog) ability to locate all the parks and green spaces.  When he's had enough, he leads me unerringly back home.  A few times he's turned me around when I tried leading him in the wrong direction.

All my painting things are packed in boxes right now, while we begin what will be an extensive home renovation project.  If we're lucky we'll survive it with our sanity mostly intact, though maybe we already were insane to want to take it on in the first place.  In the meantime, I hope to continue at least virtual painting.
