Fire and water

Among some more exciting things, I've been working hard on the kitchen and excitingly it's now a place where things can be cooked. There's still a fair bit to do, but it's starting to feel like a real place to live again. Here are a few more photos...

Ultra-minimalism, or just a work in progress?

Craigslist provides the stools and pot rack (in the next picture)

It may look like we have a sink and a stove here, but they're not connected to anything. How frustrating.

Look, a sink! a stove! they work! at last!

One of the things more exciting than renovating the kitchen (as if that were possible?) was last weekend's "adventure ride" with Paul and Lina on the Elk-Thurston ridge trail near Chilliwack. For something quite local, it felt very adventurous indeed, with a huge painful climb followed by a heinous bushwack and a very alpine-feeling ridge trail. The great views were sadly not visible, but we did get to see what clouds look like from the inside. The day was finished off with a fun and flowing downhill and gravel road commute back to the car.
