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."

  3. Aewsome pictures Jo! JK is growing so fast!
    Shame on your for making KD think there was pie...LOL Try simmering some patchouli, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. It smells less pie-like. lol
    I miss you guys, I Love you!

  4. Your daughter is ADORABLE. Sounds like you had a nice Thanksgiving... seems so funny to say that in October! lol Good luck with your house. I have my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed for you. Don't be a stranger!

  5. Happy Thanksgiving:)
    I stumbled across your blog and I love it:) I haven't read all of it, but I will:)I hope you have a wonderful day:)

  6. The pictures of you and JK in the kitchen are precious! I love to cook and bake with my kids...of course the kitchen is always a total disaster afterwards! Oh well, gives me a good excuse to clean it from top to bottom!! JK is too adorable! She reminds me of a baby you would see on a diapers commercial! She is a dollbaby.
    I love the pictures of your house too! My goodness you have done a lot of work. The patio has to be my favorite. I can not even imagine doing a project of that magnitude! That had to be a lot of work!! But with absolutely incredible results I see. Best of luck selling your house!!
    Have a great weekend!
