Welcome to my blog, where you'll read about my family's progress in renovating our home - a custom-built board and batten (minus the battens) house built in 1975 on a rare 5-acre conservation-type piece of property in small town Ontario, boasting spectacular views of the village from the ridge at the back of the property (which I like to call, Ridgeview). When we moved here in the summer of 2010, the house had original carpets, flooring, cabinetry, windows, and decor. All it needed was a little TLC and a creative mind to remodel it, and so we got started...

You'll find links to some helpful home improvement sites and local contractors.

I also write inspirational poetry and quotes...so you'll catch glimpses of some of my work, and find links to my favorite sites and blogs, or you can follow my Poetical Soul blog (click here or the link at the top of the page).

Hope you enjoy your visit.

Enjoying Sunset Views

Did I ever mention what amazing views we have here at Ridgeview?  This evening, after dinner, I took advantage of the longer days, the dryer weather (we had a TONNE of rain this past week), and the sunshine to walk my dog in the village.  When I got home an hour later, I ran upstairs and just happened to look out the skylight in the stairway to see an amazing sunset.  I just kept going up...straight to the loft deck, grabbing my camera on the way.  There's something about gazing at the sun, especially sunsets, that makes time stand still and nothing else matters <3 <3 <3
