So...

So life works itself out in pretty cool ways...

+ We'd been talking for awhile about selling our 2nd lot (when we bought our house, we got 2 lots with 2 separate titles... they are both 33 x 122, this is a great thing because, in Cranbrook you can't subdivide a lot any smaller than 50'), we discussed this idea with both sets of parents and a friend of my father-in-law's called us up and said he was interested in buying our lot... 3 years ago we'd be lucky to sell it for $15,000 and well now it's going for a LOT more than that!

+ In order to sell this lot, we need to remove our carport, because it crosses the property line. We have been going back and forth about building another carport in the back off the alley or building a garage, finally we settled on getting footings poured this fall, so that we could eventually build a garage. Today when I picked up Blair from work we were discussing it again and started talking about how even though a garage is considerably more expensive it would be really nice to have a covered parking area AND dry storage (since our basement is, in some areas, anything but that come springtime). So we figure we'll get some guys to quote on it.
We get in the house, check the messages and some guy from the college had been talking to one of my F-I-L's friend and heard we were looking to get a garage built and that he has between 9 and 11 students that need experience doing garage like things: pouring footings, erecting walls, putting on roofs... and that it would all be supervised by him...
Blair is in the process of calling him back and hashing out the details...


So yah for blessings that come knocking on your door!! And yah for F-I-L's and their friends!!

Tonight we are off to the RDEK company picnic, and I believe that it is T-Bone steak again like every other delicious year!
