The renovation finally | Weekly Snapshot

I've been having quite a few busy weekends and haven't been able to post often on Sundays.  Renovating I have dropped a teaser here a few times but here's the scoop finally - We are renovating a big chunk of our main level. We've been planning this for the past 6-7 months. It started as a kitchen renovation project but now includes flooring through the main floor and master bathroom. We will have the renovation crew start tomorrow and depending on when all the materials get in, it could be 1.5-3 months before they are done. I just hope the flooring is done quickly because then we can reclaim some of the main floor back. Not having a kitchen for 2-3 months is going to be very challenging but we've been promised a small work area on the main floor where we can cook early morning and later in the evening.

Thaw Blogsplash: Thaw by Fiona Robyn


A couple of days ago, I mentioned that I am interested in books focusing on a woman's struggle with her depression or mental breakdown. Katrina recommended Thaw to me, and I found myself captivated by the blurb on the book's description.

Here is the book summary: Ruth is thirty two years old and doesn't know if she wants to be thirty three. Her meticulously-ordered lonely life as a microbiologist is starved of pleasure and devoid of meaning. She decides to give herself three months to decide whether or not to end her life, and we read her daily diary as she struggles to make sense of her past and grapples with the pain of the present. "Thaw" explores what makes any of our lives worth living. Can Red, the eccentric Russian artist Ruth commissions to paint her portrait, find a way to warm her frozen heart?

Sounds interesting, right? Well, if you like it, here is something exciting. Fiona Robyn, author of Thaw, is organizing a Thaw Blogsplash, from March 1, 2010, when she will start blogging the entire book here. Fiona is interested in having as many bloggers as possible participate in it, so if you would like to be a part of this, check out this site. Don't forget to sign-up!
