Tomorrow, we have a bit of a busy day. We're supposed to be having a contractor out tomorrow morning to look at our house and give us an idea about the renos we want to get done. Adam and I are contemplating either minor renos (gut the bathroom, redo a bunch of flooring, and reface our fireplace in stone) or major renos (all those listed above plus moving our fireplace's location, as well as building a bedroom and a half bath in our current family room). After our hopefully quick meeting with our contractor in the morning, we have to drive 55 minutes away to Wetaskiwin, for family pictures.
Sunday brings Adam's birthday, so with Sunday school and church, the local Christmas craft fair that I hope to attend, baking a cake and making a special b-day dinner, I'm anticipating a rather busy day.
The only other excitement we've had lately was a porcupine that wandered onto our deck last night.
He seemed to get rather confused about how to get off, since he was too big to fit between the posts. I felt bad for him, because for over 10 minutes he just wandered back and forth, along the rails, trying to squeeze through all the openings. But this was no small porcupine. Finally, he realized that there was an actual deck there too that he could walk on, and as I cheered him on from inside the house, he meandered to the stairs and found his way out. I'm sure he was terribly frightened by it all. We seem to be attracting all sorts of animals lately. Even the deer have ventured back on the deck, recently, to nibble at the dead perennials that I hadn't yet trimmed back.
And are, as I type this, eating the Halloween pumpkins on the front lawn.
