Welcome to my new and improved Blog.

I decided it was time for a change!

I write this Blog for me, no one else, just me. It is a way to think outloud, and to share my experiences with the world. Maybe some will be interested and some will not, and who knows, I might figure something out myself. I will talk about whatever comes to my mind, and sometimes it is hard for me to do, but I will do it anyway.

I enjoy photography so you will see a lot of my work. I love to read and you will see quotes from my favorite authors. Generally follow my life as try to obtain my undergrad in Art History and English at Carleton University.

Please read, enjoy and comment, open disscussion is welcome.

Here they COME!

Yes Finally!

I finally download my pictures of my ktichen. I was waiting for the new LIGHTING to go up. And it did yesterday. Saturday night we all went out and bought new lights for the kitchen. Over the island we had a 3 light track light but no tracks. I 'm not sure what to call it. And I wanted 3 separate lights or pendant lights hanging down over it. First I had picked this blue glass one but Jack didn't like it he was afraid it didn't suit the house. So we looked some more. I couldn't find a light for over the table so I guess it was a good thing we looked together. What we got was sooo much nicer and it suits the house and ME. Now we have to paint the window and put the frames on, Plus the base boards and the cove mouldings I want at the ceiling but that will come after Christmas and may take some time. I'm really enjoying having a room that looks almost finished.

So what do you think? Not the typical Kitchen colours but I like them. Although I wish the brown walls were browner. BUT I got out voted on Rusty Nail. Looks like poop I'm told but I liked it. i had a friend who had it and I thought it was awesome in her ktichen. So we ended up with Pilgrimage Foliage. Now I have to get at the back splash that I have been collection recipes for , for the last 3 or four years. I'll post a picture when I get that done.
