There is a very, very small apartment on the third floor that is not rented. My brother has been doing some painting up there in preparation for a prospective tenant. This is the view from one of the windows. You can see more of the harbour in person but in the picture you can only see a bit of it just to the right of the big pine tree.
Our home renovations have been completed…at least until spring when I think they will be replacing the railing and all of the fences. Oh, and we will have a new front door (brick red) by Thanksgiving! It was a rough haul with all the work being done on my and my mum’s apartments but we are so happy with how it all turned out. You can see the third floor windows where the view is so spectacular. Our apartment is on the second floor and my mum is on the first floor.
My niece, Noel, came to visit over the weekend. My sister, Holly, stayed at my mum’s last week so that she could get 5 radiation treatments in Boston. A few years ago, when my sister moved she gave her dog, Sadie to my brother. Noel and Sadie were quite happy to be reunited for an afternoon nap.
Joe found a wonderful film called, Echo in the Canyon, last weekend. I think it was on Netflix. It was all about the musical scene in Laurel Canyon, California in the mid-sixties. It featured The Beach Boys, The Mamas and the Papas, The Byrds…It was done by Jacob Dylan and we really enjoyed it.
It’s comin’ on Christmas.
I know….it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. However, I saw a giant pine tree lit up just across the street from the parking lot at work, two windows with Christmas lights in theme in a third floor apartment and an actual Christmas tree in a second floor apartment both in old town just around the corner from me. It was such a nice treat to see all of that on my way home from work.
