Our New Home

We finally found a place to live and will be moving the first week of October. It is a frame cottage...everything on one floor except the bedroom. We have one 4 piece bath upstairs and a 2 piece bathroom downstairs, which makes it very convenient. The only time I will have to go upstairs is to clean or go to bed at the end of a long day.

The house has four bedrooms, so when the boys come to stay they can each have a room of their own. All appliances are supplied, including the microwave. The large pantry off the kitchen and numerous cupboards will give me lots of storage space. The living room/dining room is open concept. Our round oak table and chairs will fit in there perfectly.

There are laminate floors throughout, which suits me fine. I'm not a fan of carpeting. We can take Dakota and the house has been entirely renovated, painted and it's in spotless, move-in condition. There 's a small yard, a patio, a workshop and a shed.

What more could you ask for. The only thing missing will be the green space we have here. It's on a main street but there is a park two blocks away. Just hope we like it. The landlady is new to renting and the one thing that concerns me is that she thinks she can enter the premises whenever she wants. I explained that is not feasible and against the landlord/tenant laws of Ontario. Hope it doesn't cause a problem.

Sorry I haven't been around for a few days. For some reason every time I tried to log in, it took me to an error page. Glad I'm back once again.

I will post more photos after we get the key.


  1. Mary, congratulations on your lovely home, I love it! I look forward to more photos. <3


    Can Alex save Winter from the darkness that hunts her?

    YA Paranormal Romance, Darkspell coming fall of 2011!

  2. It looks like a lovely place. I hope you'll be happy there.

  3. It looks like a really nice place!

  4. What a nice looking house! I hope the landlady gets the message! Sounds perfect other than that.

  5. Mary...... that is a cute little place.... I am so glad that you are going to get settled and I pray that the park is as beautiful and the walk you used to take....... If I were there I would help you move and pack and tote boxes and unpack and all the things that comes with a move......

    Exciting new things girl...... HE is on your side...

  6. Mary, your new place is beautiful! I understand about your mother. Ms. Fran was mean and hateful one day and sweet the next. Never knew what she would do or say. Its really hard to see someone you love in this way. Glad you will be living in a different place as that will be less stressful. Think of you often but not able to open your blog very often. Think blogger is making a bigger mess by updating everything!

  7. I cannot believe you could find such a lovely place to rent. Hope you will have many wonderful years there. Hope you landlady gets the message about uninvited visits.

  8. Mary, what a delightful house you found! It looks so well taken care of and I just know you will love it:-) Of course you will miss having a park right across the street from you but having one 2 blocks away is not bad at all. Just hope that new landlady heeds your warning that she can't come and go as she pleases once you've moved in!! xoxo

  9. Such a cozy and charming house! I know you'll be happy there!
    Sorry I haven't been around. Such a busy summer with fall looking the same way. I've missed you and will try to stop by more!
