    Oh, thank you for the bird song! Remember when I visited you in June 2008 I wrote down a few bird melodies – but I cherish actually hearing this one!

    You are so very pretty! I like your hair long too.

    Your words “The cold and hardship of winter are what make a warm and windy Spring day all the more delightful, don’t you think?” are good for the soul – perhaps even a PEI philosophy!?!

    Sorry LJ, but home renovations NEVER end, you just find other projects to do! (ask me how I know!)

    I have my money on the kitchen being in that list. I’m looking forward to seeing some photos. The kitchen is on our list for the summer too, so you’ll likely have some company on Renovation Road.

    Spring and home renovations seem to go hand in hand.

    I always remember that cast iron sink you trashed. In fact, was talking to hubs about it the other day.

    Renovations at the get-go are done with such excitement and zeal. What seems to follow is drudgery and procrastination. I’m still waiting for the living room and adjoining ‘computer’ room to get some paint on their dreary white walls (there’s a longer list but I’ll pass on listing them). FIVE years waiting; however, the master bedroom, guest room, bathroom, screened ‘house’ that I’m not allowed to call a room, and pretty barn red shed are wonderful.

    I look forward to seeing some more of your completed reno’s!

    Spring is my favorite season and it blows by so fast. The trees budding, flowers popping up and the grass greening, birds singing and then the crickets in the grass. The signs of new life.
    I am with you on the lilacs, we have a row across the back yare(10) and unfortunately they are thru for the season. Did not bloom very long this year, color not as vibrant nor the scent but still at the top of the list.Daffodils and tulips are done, spring does not last long enough.
    Enjoy it and good luck on finishing the renovations. Post pictures please.

    It awesome to get a bit of additional info when renovating and designing (or planning too). If you are looking for some professional tips, I suggest looking at Masterrenovator.com, the guy has good tips for things you don’t usually think about.
