I just wanted to do an official post and let everyone know that I am returning to my former blog. Truthfully, I miss it. I was on that blog for many years and it was like a comfortable pair of old shoes.
Here is the house we are going to be living in. There is stuff around from the guys who are fixing it up. I love how bright and airy it is. I love that it has a fenced in backyard for me and the kids to enjoy. I am excited. We also have a little cupboard under the stairs (like in Harry Potter LOL) . This is SO much better than our little apartment in a crappy scary neighbourhood.

My favorite part of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic was William Robertson & Son Store! It has been on the Halifax Waterfront since the 1840s. Robertson Ship Chandlery has been restored to the way it looked at the turn of the last century. I think it looks so amazing
The PhotoHunt theme for the week is~ Clean ~. This was a tough one for me, but then I thought of our fun day at the World Oceans Day event and how it was all about keeping our oceans clean and how we spent the day out enjoying the fresh clean air and the smell of the ocean and I figured it would fit just fine.
I thought I would share some pics of my parents and my brother and sister. It has been so long since I saw my sister that I didn’t even recognize her, not even a little bit.
And here is how it went. It wasn’t a long visit, but was okay with me. When we got their Rose was throwing a temper tantrum and then mom gave Lilly a book from their religion that was WAY to mature for her (like answering questions regarding a couple’s sex life and such) so Wandering Aengus took it away and SHE spent the whole rest of the visit throwing a temper tantrum making my mom feel bad.
So two out of my four kids threw a temper tantrum and my mom felt bad about the book. Dad gave her money and she bought something at Scholars Choice and that made her happy but they were gone by then. They bought some cute clothes for the kids and admired how cute they were, but it was mostly awkward and uncomfortable.
When we got home, we were walking up the three floors to our apartment and Lotus slipped on the stairs, I caught her by her wrist and when we got home, she started to cry and hold her wrist. I felt terrible, because I felt like I was responsible for her pain. We took her to the doctor but we got no real answers regarding her wrist. The doctor manipulated it quite a bit and said that as far as he could tell it wasn’t sprained or dislocated. She was miserable most of last night with it, but today she isn’t crying about it as much but she is favoring it a lot. If she keeps favoring it, I am going to take her in to get an x-ray to get a second opinion.
I thought I would participate in the Saturday Photohunt this week and the PhotoHunt for this week is ‘Taste’. I thought about it for a second and realized I had the perfect pictures for this theme! I took them at the waterfront. My oldest daughter, Lilly is very much enjoying the TASTE of cotton candy and my youngest daughter, Lotus is timidly attempting to TASTE cotton candy for the first time.
I am completely addicted to Nutritional Yeast. I add it to everything. It is SOO yummy and it adds a fullness to recipes that I like.
I think we have our house. I am so looking forward to letting the kids play in the house and sitting in our yard and letting them run and play.
I have a list of things I want to buy when we get settled (barbecue, garbage bins, dishwasher, swing set, etc.) I really look forward to being in a house again.
I love listening to the baby giggle, but as far as I know I am the only one who has heard it. It is so sweet to watch and listen to him.
One thing I am glad about is that this house is a little smaller and less expensive. That means I can get the things I want to and that I can still plan on replacing our broken (now gone) van in a few months.
