To make pictures of chicks is not safe. While I tried to make some, Robin-mother attacked me. Then I have to do so through the window.
As of December 30 in the morning I saw through the window a lot of birds on the tree. They looked not really seasonal. I made pictures of them and surprisingly found they are Robins. Usually they come here sometimes at the end of March or so. However, this winter is not a real one for now. The temperature is mostly around +5C, there is no snow, even at night time we do not have any frost. Probably, the birds felt the Spring in the air and decided to come back to us. They actually brought the Spring on their wings and happiness of New Year!
The only thing I will miss in nearest time is the beautiful Maple behind of my house window. After over twenty years my lovely Oakville living we are going to move out of here. Many of our friends are really surprised and regret of our decision. They do not understand how can we leave the house I’ve built so beautiful and comfortable for living. I believe the next owners will appreciate whatever we leave for them.
Life is going on and we need new impressions, new projects and new inspirations. We are not going to far away from this lovely town, and it is not farewell. We are just saying good buy!
Our new place for living is the beautiful Vineyards Ontario region. I hope in couple months you will enjoy my new pictures and posts from there.
Colourful summertime! Flowers are blooming, butterflies are flying – What a Wonderful World!
Rennweg, Zurich, Switzerland. The road to one of four main Zurich Churches – St. Peter Church. It has the largest church clock of Europe.
Traveling through archive pictures this one caught my eyes and recall some good memories.
Today I was lucky to have this patient model to make some pictures of it. This dragonfly just sat for relax, as I understand, and stayed still for at least 15 minutes. The only motions I’ve seen were the shivering of wings and tail causing by wind.
The most fun job is to build the ceiling. The Embassy ceiling system is the best choice to make the basement ceiling looking nice and clean. Finally I came to the end of the project. Perhaps I will make few pictures of the final product to let you know how it looks like and why I decided to make this job. It was absolutely uninhabitable space and now it is nice and cozy place for work, relax and entertain.
Do not forget to open one of the pictures and follow by arrow to watch every single picture in bigger size.
Life is not only about hard work. Fortunately, the weather brought to us Sun, Warm and Colour! Now is the nice time to be outside and enjoy the flowers, birds chirping, bees buzzing and relax.
After framing is done the next step is to build the water and sewer piping to laundry and bathroom. The most time consuming job is plumbing. To trace all the pipes, to choose right connectors, to solder them, and to fit all that stuff to appliances is quite a project.
Compare with the plumbing the sewer is kind of relaxing and enjoying process. Just measure, cut, glue and vu à la you have it done.
It was necessary to relocate some existing pipes, such as furnace exhaust, to make then easer creation of the bulkheads.
The most challenging and tricky part of framing is building the bulkheads. All of the home communications such as water, sewers, power cables, telephone lines, ducts, central vac pipes etc. are located under the basement celling, this is why to cover all that stuff the patience is the most desirable character trait. It is time consuming job. Most of the time it is not strait forward project. Pretty often it takes time to make a special design to solve the problem.
