I'm still here OR I'm back

10 days in Newfoundland does a body good!

We started in Lewisporte, where we saw bunch of houses, and I found a place to work!

Then we drove the 4 hours to my parents for a little visit, and had some lobsters. (have I mentioned I hadn't seen my father in a year)

this is my sister playing with her food

Then we drove another 4 hours to visit my sister and her 2 beautiful kiddies, AND my in-laws, where we had a few drinks. (We also took advantage of being in St. John's and dropped off all my paperwork to my college and association to get me registered for work.)

Finally, we drove yet another 4.5 hours back to Lewisporte for a second look at our top houses.

Saturday, we made a conditional offer on our top selection, and are waiting to hear if it will be accepted.

Our Ontario house has been on the market three weeks so far. We're having a lot of showings, but so far no offers. Tomorrow kiddo goes back to her old school, and the waiting game continues.


  1. Here's hoping everything gets settled quickly. Could you just rent out your Ontario home?

  2. That's a lot of driving time! Hope you get the house you wanted and yours sells soon. And blueberry-rhubarb sounds like an unusual combination for a wine.

  3. Sounds like you're having a blast! Best wishes on a quick sale for your home in Ontario. At least the market there is a little better than what it is here in the U.S!

  4. Wishing you the best of luck to get your house sold, get moved and get settled in and enjoying yourself.

  5. I've never been to Newfoundland but I'd love to go one day. Hope you get relocated to a place you truly love.

    Tossing It Out

  6. Well, at least somethings are moving right along!
