The area is beautiful.

Today we had a hummingbird in the back garden, enjoying the flowers of our bean plant. We only got a fleeting look at it as it flitted about.... and it was too quick to depart so no photo.
Amateur astronomers, grab your telescopes. A spaceship is about to crash into the Moon, and you may be able to see the impact.
The spacecraft: SMART-1, a lunar orbiter belonging to the European Space Agency (ESA).
The impact site: Lacus Excellentiae (The Lake of Excellence), an ancient, 100-mile wide crater in the Moon's southern hemisphere.
The time to watch: Saturday, September 2nd at 10:41 p.m. PDT (Sept. 3rd, 0541 UT).
This would be cool to see. Via - NASA

This is a required posting, its been so long since the last posting i figured it had to be done. I think I have finally convinced Mom to come and visit me in Feb 2007. Will have to get the plane ticket soon. We are looking forward to December as Mom and Dad Anthony are comming to visit on the 20th of Dec.... the countdown is on! Then they will be back to visit baby early next year..... Its nice to know that family is on the way :)

I am so happy no one wants to look at my place today. I am tired of people just wanting to come by and take a look at my wall color..... Or maybe my fabulous bed set.... I truly do love it, more then when we first bought it. Someone just make an offer, the house is clean, good condition, the appliances are good..... Show me the offer. I want to move in to another place and stop worrying about if someone's going to call and want to come over and there's a spot on the sink. Friends and family don't care if there's a spot on the sink. Yesterday after Steve vacuumed, I started picking up little fuzz balls off the carpet, now I'm sure no one would even notice them....... But I saw them, I had to pick them up. I'm worried I will have to steam the carpets again, although they are still looking good. Occasionally nova's foot print looks like a spot, until I get close. Steaming is hard work when you are pregnant, especially when you only want to sleep. I think I'm going to be having a boy. We have not decided on the name, although I have a name in mind for a girl. There is always hope. Nova has been causing some concern, his allergies have been acting up and he caused himself to have an infection from all the biting and scratching. The vet gives me discounts on my visits there................That's how often my boy goes

I like the fact that they use the same monitor (Dell flatscreen) and phone (Vtech) I use at home in the series to make things look cool.

Well we really just the grounds, and really just the rocket on display. The rocket is a Corvair GCM-16 Atlas, the same kind used when John Glen first went into space. Nova was kinda anxious, and we couldn't take him on the grounds, so I just stayed long enough to take a quick look and some photos, and we were off again. I really have to go visit the museum sometime.
Still having some time to kill we took a pleasant walk in the Conroy Pit, a place where Nova is much more welcome.

Having found and taken my booty, we shuffled indoors for the preparation.
The tomato was sliced as bread was toasted, whole wheat for Tammy, whole grain for Stephen.
It hardly whimpered at all as I carved it.
Sandwiches were prepared, and made ready with beverages for the first official tomato of the season-sandwich tasting.
Lettuce, salt, pepper.... and some sliced cheese for Steve. Mmmmm, yummy tomato. Very juicy and tasty.

Best wishes on the start of your new life.
Stephen & Tammy
So I am really sore from all the cleaning and the baby is making himself known. The morning sickness can come without warning. It saved me from cleaning the shower yesterday, as I just could not do it. I am having cravings and aversions to particular foods, never constant only lasting a little while. Now I am partial to MacDonalds Chicken nuggets, one day it seemed like the only thing I could eat. Yesterday I could barley eat anything as it all seemed to make me ill. Pregnancy is interesting.

Tam, Nova and I went to Dicks for a burger and shake (awesome burgers BTW) and then a drive through downtown Gatineau, with return via scenic highway 50. We were so busy prepping the house that we hadn't really made any plans for the time when we were ousted from our home. On our return there were still visitors, so we took a walk around the block, and walked back incognito... pretending (and indeed actually) to enjoy such a lovely adult-friendly young professional neighborhood on a nice afternnon. Care was taken to greet several of the visitors as they exited with broad smiles and how-do-you-do's.
Our realtor visted later and told us that the house was showing very well... especially for such a nice semi-cool sunny summer day. He generally hopes for rain on open house day, as more people tend to visit.
We already have another appointment for a showing tomorrow. So we'll have to plan an outing for tomorrow as well.
See the MLS Listing
We're just finishing up the final vaccuming now, and then it's out the door. We're not sure where we're going for 2 hours... but I'm sure we'll find somewhere to go.

Here's a photo of the storage area... lots of bins. Mine's a 10x10.
Here's a photo of the contents. Basically 10x10 feet of stuff that we don't actually need, that we've been tripping over for the past 3 years instead of tossing. Now we're paying to store it. Crazy.
The lock is to ensure that nobody steals the stuff that we don't want. 24x7 cameras and a barbed wire fence protect it.

Windows are hard to paint.
Other than that, we've just got a few tasks to do before showings start on Sunday (1 PM). We got a call this evening to enquire about a viewing... but we're not showing until Sunday. I guess there was a little mixup... but it shows that at least there's some interest.
