oh, rosea

1403497322.870688.IMG_55121403497324.748746.IMG_5506A few weeks ago my husband and I had gotten into a small, silly argument. Later that night after I came home from work, I had a beautiful little plant waiting for me called an Echeveria/Rosea. Rather than getting roses I received a Rosea! It’s a cute play on words though I don’t think that it was intentional. Even though my husband had already apologized, he knew that buying me a new succulent would sweeten the apology. He was right. Hey, I’ll take them anyway I can get them.

I thought that the time would drag on but instead the 30th came very quickly. We are planning on having it mowed today, and to officially break ground. Huzzah! C’mon Little Barn, we want you built already.

P.S. Happy Canada Day … tomorrow!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
