Skied To Work

It was admittedly a show off thing to do. It didn't go as well as planned. I usually take 30 minutes to walk to work. It took 50 minutes to ski to work into the teeth of a particularly nasty north wind breaking trail the whole way. Not the fun and speedy adventure I'd hoped for.

Basement Built Ins

Chris and I have used every room in our 3 bedroom home for 1, home office, 2, sewing room, 3 bedroom. So, we had our excellent cabinet maker create a built in double sized murphy bed and shelves for our downstairs room. The guest room is most times Chris' boardroom, so multi purpose was important. Our cabinet maker Marc Berube was rather fed up with working with poplar so built it out of birch. In retrospect he agrees with us that it would have looked even nicer built out of poplar. Still, all and all a lovely piece of furniture. And no, we are never leaving this house!
