What happened to a month?
The last time I posted was a month ago and so much has been going on with me within this month.
One of the biggest changes was moving to boarder town, Sarnia.
The bridge above is the Bluewater Bridge that connects two great countries, Canada and the USA.
When I first moved here I wanted to live on the water side. I looked but did not find anything within my price range on the waterfront. So I did the next best thing, I found a sweet little condo located near the bridge, near the water.
Last week my children and I went down to the park located on the water.

Just in time for this Freighter to sail by.
It blasts its horn as it passes under the bridge.
|That's me, exploring and enjoying my new town.|
Shortly after I moved into my new place, I was talking with my Mother on the phone and describing to her my new digs.
When I told her I basically live under the bridge, she asked me if I hear the passing of the big transportation trucks.
At the time I said I did not, but these days yes I can.
The quietest part of my day is the evening, and with the window open I can actually hear the rumble of their engines and the sounds their brakes make as they make their way, inch by inch to the Customs station.
You see those big things on the highway, one right after the other passing you and think nothing of it. But when they pass by you overhead and their destination is the country next door, they take on a different form of life.
A bit of a mystery. You wonder where they are heading, which State is their destination. How long they will be on the road.
Like any new place, I am trying to figure out where I want to place furniture, what looks good where.
What colour and style I want to explore.
I went to my local Thrift Store and bought this vintage dresser. I took the mirror off and gave it a good cleaning.
At the same time I bought a bar stool table and chairs. Something different than I normally go with.
Have not taken pics yet, but will do soon and show them off to you.
The table needs to be redone and I am thinking painting it black. I was out at Walmart the other night and looked at getting black leather bar stool chairs to replace the ones that are there now, they looked very comfy.
I am excited about this new look I am putting together. Different from my country look I have always gone with.
I will be keeping the country look when I buy the farm, but for now I am experiencing something new.
|Glimpse of the table on the left...will get a better pic out soon.|
You can see a glimpse of the table on the left.
Water down the road from me and water fountains in my home.
Water.....so soothing, on a large scale and small.
I am going to enjoy the summer living in this boarder town.
I have always loved this community and will continue to search in this area when I purchase the farm.
And if you think about it......I live so close to the this boarder bridge that technically if I sat on the roof of my condo I could wave to my Michigan friends across the way.
So if you are in Port Huron, MI and happen to look across the St. Clair River and see this crazy Canadian waving......it's just me!
Don't be shy to wave back!!
I will be linking up with Tweak It Tuesday at Cozy Little House
