Jake! He is a wonderful dog. A few months ago he had a skin infection that caused his hair not to grow and he was becoming pretty bare on his backside. Luckily our veterinarian was able to prescribe a good medicine and within four weeks Jake was starting to look normal again. I have a few pictures of when he was sick, but he looks much better now and I though I would take and share a few photographs. He is over two years old now and I’ve grown to love him. We’ll occasionally buy him a toy so he can have fun. Jake loves the toys the have a squeaker. You can see the remains of one of his toys in the background of the bottom picture.

Remodel: Putting It Together

Sunday, 25 October 2009, 7:45pm

It has been a while since our remodel project was deemed complete for the year. It would probably better be called a “phase” of the master remodel plan. We purchased a wonderful dining set that has some really comfortable swivel and non-swivel chairs. They are made out of metal and held up really well under the weather that was experienced so far.

We also finally put together the Outdoor Heating Lamps and got them functioning to generate some nice warmth for the fall weather and upcoming winter. We have two of them and unfortunately one of them needs some minor repairs before it will work. They are quite stylish and really affordable. We purchased them at Costco during the summer time.

The office finally received its own deck. This was one of the last elements to be installed and the workmanship is very good. There is enough space to place a chair and enjoy the fall weather or let the dog out in the chilly mornings without really having to leave the house. The lamps provide excellent light and this deck really is the start of the second phase of the project that we may get to next summer.

Enjoy the photographs! I took them with my Nikon D300 and a Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED wide angle lens with a SB-800 AF Speedlight flash. I was using a corrupted 32GB flash card that has since been replaced, but many of the pictures I took were damaged.

Molten Chocolate Ebelskivers

Molten Chocolate Ebelskivers! Charlie made dinner tonight and it was delicious. He made an oven roast with lots of vegetables and a super tasty sauce using his new pots and pans. He also got all the ingredients together and made some ebelskivers for dessert. They are like doughnut holes but with a filling. Normally we make a cinnamon brown sugar ebelskiver for breakfast and Charlie took it to the next level with some Molten Chocolate ebelskivers tonight.

I decided to take a few pictures. Please enjoy and maybe we’ll have you over sometime soon for some ebelskivers.
