Last weekend was busy one as it tends to be these days. But we finally got started with our long postponed project – painting the walls 😀 We moved here, gosh almost 3 years ago (which got me thinking that I’ve been writing this blog almost 4 years now. Crazy! ) But let’s not get side tracked 😀 We live pretty quiet and settled life, we don’t jump on the walls and things like that 😀 Still we could start seeing life lived in this house. That includes little scratches from opening suite cases against walls, random finger prints, also our vacuum cleaner leaves annoying marks to base boards if we’re are not careful. Anyways our original plan was to get this painting done last year before Christmas 😀 HA. We are still not done yet but so sooo happy to get the project started. Other things that took place in the weekend were that we were cleaning our garage and storage. We took a load of stuff to Value Village and other donation centres. And a little shout out if you didn’t know this but you can donate your old clothes to H&M at least here in Vancouver area. And when you take your old clothes there you get a $5 coupon to shop there per one bag! I think that’s so great! You can read more about it here . I’m saying this because whenever I mention it to my friends they’ve never even heard about it! And yes, they do shop there 😀
What else. Oh yes! Remember when I was looking to buy a new hairdryer? You can read about it here. Well the GHD hairdryer and straightener are FABULOUS! So I ordered their soft curl iron too last week 😀 And I absolutely love it! Here are the best pics I could come up with 😀 Actually I was taking pictures to show my friend the end result.
Last but not least? Still thinking if there was more to this weekend 😀 Can’t remember but we got some fresh mountain air to our lungs this weekend too. Sunday morning we went for a hike. And our dog went for her first swim for the summer. Water in the lake was ice cold but didn’t seem to bother her 😀
Ok now I remember, our toaster broke completely and I lost like half of my thumb nail with it! So gross!!!! The handle came off. We have a 4 slice toaster and the other half handle came off almost two years ago and our toaster have been functioning partially and I’ve been wanting to get rid of it for a long time. But because the other half worked there was no need to throw it away 😀 Well now it got a permission to go! So this morning I toasted my bread slice in the pan with the scrambled eggs 😀 Works that way too!
