The wait is over

My house has finally sold.

After a long drought, there were two offers today. Same price. One with conditions and one without. That was a no brainer. I took the offer without conditions and the house is officially sold.

My move date is 15 July. Now I can enjoy the house and the yard without having to leave all the time for showings and open houses. This is great.

Not sure what my next move will be. Probably into rental accommodations in Ottawa while I take my time searching for a place to buy. I'll be sad to leave but it had to happen sooner or later so might as well be sooner.

Take care.

We haven't tried this one yet, but it sounds like a good way to say "farewell" to your old balcony.

Blueberry Watermelon Twist.

1 oz Yellow Tail Bubbles
1.5 oz blueberry-flavoured vodka
1 oz watermelon liqueur
2 oz fresh lemonade

Shake all ingredients except Yellow Tail Bubbles in a martini shaker with ice.

Strain into a chilled martini or Collins glass. Add ice. Top with Yellow Tail Bubbles. Garnish with fresh blueberries and a small watermelon wedge.

VoilĂ  Fresh and tasty.

Hi Chris,
Thanks for the encouragement while I try to find a place to live in Ottawa. My fallback plan is to couch surf at my friends house if I can't find anything. She doesn't mind and it would save me the trouble of having to sign a lease on an apartment.

The drink recipe looks great. I'm missing all four ingredients but if you are endorsing the recipe then I'll go out and get them. Actually I'm missing the martini shaker too. Now that I'm moving to the nation's capital I guess I should get one and a set of martini glasses. Yet another reason to go shopping. lol
