99% Done


What a productive weekend!
Floors.... done (almost)
Tom (my brother in law) came for the weekend and helped Terry with the hall and dining room. They started Saturday afternoon and with very few breaks they finished on Sunday afternoon. We are so excited to get the house put back together. The WE is Mollie and ME.... This whole floor thing has stressed ole Mollie beyond fun. She isn't eating anymore... that HOW BAD IT IS! Vet wants her to lose 10 lbs so we decided the NEW FLOOR diet would work best... too bad it doesn't work that way for me!
Terry and Tom having a sandwich break...

Mollie... very happy its all over! (and very happy that I am home now) I have been gone to Halifax to help Kim with her bake sale.

Hallway... done

Dining room...done

Livingroom done....

Please excuse any mess, or upheaval you may see around the house in these pictures. I literally got home, and the floors are almost finished but friends and family want pictures... here they are, including the mess!

Bake sale
Kim (sister in law) is running in the "Weekend to End Breast Cancer" and needed to raise $2000. She has been working on it since January and this is the last week. So, I know I have baked my brains out for her bake sale and quite a few friends also baked for her, and today we had a bake sale at two separate locations. We started at a church hall for an hour and then on a neighbourhood corner where Kim and friends live (and use to live) Never got one picture. Burned out my camera batteries on Bella's feeding frenzy... Bella is the new puppy that is in the Trigg household and she is a 16 week old black lab puppy. Bake sale was a big success, making almost $340 with ticket sales and book mark sales and the baking... pretty cool, eh.

I got some really cool ideas for a few little fundraisers for my "Run for the Cure" in October!
