Pumpkin Pies and Marshmallow Markets
OK! Almost a week since my last post. I'll never get to 200 posts if I keep this up! But it has been a nice week with very minimal time spent on the computer. Most of the house-fixing-up stuff is done. I just have the holes in the kitchen baseboards to fix, and another coat of touch-up paint in the bathroom. I'm so tired of house stuff. This entire year has been focused on the house. From the first bathroom renovation in January, until now. But it's almost done. Last week I was simmering some cinnamon sticks, orange slices, and whole cloves on the stove for potpourri when KD came home from work asking "where's the pumpkin pie?" He was horribly disappointed that there was no pie when the house smelled so good. So the next day I had to bake him one. He loves pumpkin pie, and JK seems to be learning to love it too. She had fun "helping" me bake too. We had Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend. If we waited until November, it would be winter already. KD had to study much of the weekend, but on Sunday we had a get-together with his family at his brother's big new house. JK tumbled down a couple of stairs while we were there because she got distracted by the dogs. She was more scared than hurt. She's quite good on the stairs usually, but I think B's stairs are more slippery than ours. Yesterday, JK and I went to have dinner with my mom and grandparents while KD hung out with his childhood friend from Ontario. I love visiting with my family. The time always seems to go so quickly. Suddenly it was 9 PM, and JK was cranky and tired. She had fun playing with Grover, my grandparents' huge fluffy husky. He's really gentle and didn't seem to care that she was poking him and pulling his fur. They did change the pictues on our house listing...at least on the mls site. They still have the old pictures on the realtor's site, but I don't care about that. No one is going to go to a specific realtor's site when searching for a home. We have had one call about our house, and he said he wants to come look at it. KD told him to just call before he wants to come. I would have tried to book a time right then, because I'm not always at home. This is not a realtor, but someone who found my Facebook Marketplace ad. So of course I'm going to stay home for that one. We've had no other calls, and I'm getting kind of worried. There are only 2.5 weeks left before the deadline to sell. As my friend said: "The market is soft....marshmellowey."
