What does a Garden Gnome do when she is not gardening, in the kitchen or doing genealogy? Well the answer might just surprise you so read the entries to find out more. This blog focuses on everything we do to make our house a home. There will be a strong emphasis on home energy efficiency and do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. At the same time there will also be crafts, knitting and crocheting projects along with any other little tips we do to create that down to earth, I want to be here home. Please enjoy your visit :)

House Sale Update - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

My apologies for not updating sooner.  We arrived home from our spring vacation to see my husband being hospitalized.  So it has been rather interesting here to say the least.  Our house has been for the most part on the market since March 2010.  We went private after returning home then reduced the price  dramatically because we really want to close on our new house.  It's back with a real estate agent.  The new price is getting a lot of interest but so far no offers. 

We are continuing to do the spit and shine.  We had a concrete firm come in to raise our sidewalk and we have put down a lot of new cedar mulch.  The outside is looking really good!  We are continuing to do smaller projects indoors as well.   This week we are replacing the drop ceiling tiles in the laundry room.  It will make that room looks a bit brighter.  Next on the list is painting the master bedroom.  We will go with a neutral colour.  And so we plug along, hoping for an offer...
