Join me in recounting a few weeks in the life of Allan & Mary-Ann 🕵️♂️🕵️♂️
I normally proof read, not for this post. Hope there are not too many typos!
June 26th: What’s going on now? The microwave, that’s been working well, started to shut off after a few seconds. Plug it into another outlet, same results. New microwave time. Buy it, plug it in. Does the same thing. Nue-Lit Electric to the rescue
June 28th – On our way to Ikea Calgary an SUV passes up and we hear the dreaded “bang” on the windshield. Fortunately it’s just a chip and can be repaired. Detour to Speedy Auto Glass in Calgary; although we have glass coverage we paid out of pocket as they consider the $60 a claim against our policy. We’ve learned it’s not worth putting it through.
Then on to Ikea
Installation went very well!!
July 7th: Build the outdoor patio set day, so much to build
In the evening friends popped by for a visit. Allan beat Shelly at Quatro; but it was Shelly’s first game-a rematch is sure to come.
Our first outdoor card game. Loving the new glasses
Then a delicious dinner
July 14th: Pick up dining room chairs at the Brick day. The first thing Allan didn’t have build. We just had to remove the plastic.
There was lots of debris on the pick up ramp, unfortunately, we ended up with a flat tire.
July 19th: Fire wood delivery day! 🔥🪵
July 20th: It’s build (by others for a change) the hot tub platform. They did a wonderful job!
July 21st: What’s on the build menu for today? Chairs!!
Box and parts = these
Way too much styrofoam, off to the dump
July 22nd: Getting the pergola ready for the hot tub. The patio stones are being removed to make way for the 6×6 framed gravel base.
July 23th: Allan working hard to remove the bush stump.
Allan the VICTOR proudly displaying the stump
Whoops didn’t realize it was the grape bush
We may plant more but not behind where the hot tub is going
This is our third attempt at a great room carpet.. whoa such a small box for an 8′ x 10′ area rug! Hum! A lot wavy!!
We went out for a walk and came home to more stuff to build!
First use of the seat! Yahoo, it didn’t collapse 🙂 The other piece is our “control centre”
The finished products!
July 26th: Build, build and more build. Today’s project…
Allan is such a pro at this by now. Great job, looks wonderful.
July 30th: Today we set our best, length of time for a fire. We started it about 7am and stopped it abut 5 due to the weather. My ❤️🔥 god rules!
July 31st: Allan’s Birthday 🎈🎉🎈🥳🎈
It starts with a fire
Then a breakfast prepared by me with a beer
Bailey is hiding cause she doesn’t want to go back to storage.
We get to choose dinner on our birthdays, Allan selected 🍕&🍺No surprise here 🙂
The pizza place has a special on 3 pizzas, mix & match.
Allan had a great birthday, started in Tabor and ended at home 🏠 We will be having another celebration when Kyle & Megan get here!!
