What a pleasure that our electricians have finished working on the second floor. Now, them and I have decided to take a break from each other.
They say that, on the market, the first price is bitter, the second price is sweet, and the third one is peace. Let's just say that our contractors and I have parted peacefully.
In order to strengthen the calming effect, our family has taken a trip to the Royal Botanical Gardens, from which I brought these photos.
Something strange is going on with me lately. I feel like I'm about to buy a garden gnome. Possibly not soon, but eventually. The first sign that one will eventually appear in our garden is that I keep encountering gnomes everywhere. I have to admit that some of them have great personalities.
I have several requirements for my future gnome. He must not look creepy. He must not smoke. He must have a red hat. He must have a kind expression in his eyes, and a smile. The last gnome that I saw in the store - whom they called a Travel Gnome - had an overly concerned expression in his eyes.
Finally, the weather has given us the opportunity to have a barbecue on the backyard. For the first time ever, I've tried to barbecue salmon on a cedar board. It turned out to be very delicious.
I wanted to end this post on a calm note, but I couldn't help showing you this gargoyle that adorned somebody's front yard. First of all, I think he's in a very sad mood. Second of all, what kind of a message are the owners of the house trying to send?
I hope you all had a great weekend.
