September is bipolar so far.

Yesterday was stinking hot. The day before yesterday was stinking hot. The day before that was stinking hot. So what's today? 12 degrees, of course! And I'm Canadian, so I'm talking proper Celsius. I think we have a high of 15 all week. At least it's supposed to be sunny.

This will be nice on one hand because I won't have to worry about it being too stinking hot to have the kids out at the house with me while we continue getting it ready to move into. And when I say "getting it ready to move into" I mean, "making sure we have walls and floors and plumbing and things."

But on the other hand, now I feel stupid because I'm pretty sure most of the kids' socks are packed in a box somewhere. Of course.

We are now 3 weeks from the opening of our move-in window. The pressure is on.

I tried to think of an old-timey slogan about progress, but....never mind.

This was the sunset two days ago from what will be our dining room doors.

Have I actually said here that we're renovating an old farmhouse on an acreage and we're hoping to move in October? Maybe not, but I think most of you who read this know me in real life or outside of this blog anyway and know that already, so it's moot. Or moo, if you think like Joey Tribbiani.

oh my goodness it's September. That means October 1st is 30 days away. Holy cow. (Apologies to any Hindus reading this.)

But things are coming along! The first coat of primer is pretty much done in the basement (any guesses about who was helping me?)

And we got most of the drywalling done in the kitchen yesterday, it's really looking good!

The kitchen cupboards are stacked patiently (or maybe not so patiently) in the living room, waiting to be installed:

My husband has been working his fine behind off getting stuff done out there, and I really really appreciate all he's been doing <3
