Roof top garden progressing

For those still watching this blog, the roof top garden is coming along great. The grass arrived this morning - you can see the big crane that lifted it up to the roof and the grass (the long bags) waiting for installation. It will be going in the spaces that are not tiled as you can see in the forefront and back right of the picture.

With three BBQ areas it is going to be great.

We are in!

Finally, we moved in Thursday - took a while for the movers as expected but we were all in by around 5pm. Big sigh.

We have been offline since last wednesday, Cogeco finally arrived early this morning (Monday) and hooked us all up - whole home PVR, Internet ad telephone. It is the first time in over 20 years that I have been offline for 4 whole days. I didn't even open my laptop. (Ok, I did get business emails on my smartphone<S>)

However, my home office is now set up and my machines are working so I can get to work again.

We had Ikea installers here all day today doing a wall of cabinets in the master bedroom so we can finally put things away. Still waiting for our closet organizer folks to install the custom stuff, so coats and bedroom suits and shirts etc are still in boxes.

We have really enjoyed the last three evenings on the balcony looking at absolutely fantastic sunsets - almost like being welcomed by nature<S>.

Met our direct neighbours Stephanie and Sura, who move in later. Can't wait to have a get together for everyone to meet each other.

Tired from all the running around so pictures later.  Let me know how your move went and how you are doing...

Cannot wait.

Big Sigh

Our PDI was scheduled for tomorrow (Friday), a week later than most from what I've heard. We move in next week. Now it is delayed until the day before we move, really disappointing as of course we are dying to see what it looks like. Oh well, these things happen I guess. Something about back orders.

My sister's move went well the other day so one of the three of us are in, with two more to come over the next few weeks. Must say, it appears nice and quiet according to my sister and the balconies will be fantastic after a year of being stuck in a place without one.
