πŸŽ¨πŸ˜‹ Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Mazes

This is a scheduled post! We had to pack ourselves and the pets up and leave the house for a few days while the basement was spray-foam insulated! The great thing about spray foam is that it's also a vapour barrier and a fire retardant! 

Hello my friends! 😊 Welcome to Thursday Art and Dinner Date! Today our optional theme is Mazes! As renovations continue, I will be missing in action until mid-September from Blogger. But please join in with your art and food posts and share with our lovely community! 

I have scheduled YouTube videos as well for those interested:

  1. Spray-foam-insulation sounds good!
    Our condo is in an old house, no such safety-precautions (but two fire extinguishers and a firefighter aka Hubby, that should do ;-)

    I´ll see to your videos soon - perfect work-breaks!

  2. Probably much better not to be in the house while the basement is spray-foam insulated. Your drawing is cute! We have wild turkeys here as well and they can tear the entire garden up. I prefer to see them outside of my garden.

  3. I hope the renovations are going really, really well and that you and your furry family are fine.

  4. we don't have anything like spray foam insulation in the UK (probably because only very old houses have basements). Very disruptive for your pets to be moved out but hope it is all cosy and you are settled back in now.

  5. I think it's a wise decision to vacate the house while the work proceeds, Rain, and I hope you are able to make a vacation out of it. You'll be snug and warm all winter.

  6. Oh, dearest Rain, now you all had to get out of the house too! I hope the renovation will be over soon!
    All the best

  7. Hi Rain. I'm stopping by but not linking this week because a new challenge starts at Art Journal JOurney and as an admin, I need to post for that. (I'm also away the next 2 weeks so I won't be linking then either. But I will be back mid-month!) Hurrah for getting your basement foamed. That should help with temperatures down there I think. And did you actually get beets this year? Lucky you. Happy September and I hope the new month is a good one for you. Hugs-Erika

  8. Happy Thursday everyone


  9. So sorry about the disappointments in the garden. It has been a strange growing year. Except for hard beans my garden is done already. My crops not near what they were last year. I planted some late potatoes but the nights are turning cold already so we will see. I know you are working hard over there but do take some time for yourself.

  10. Hello,
    The spray foam insulation is good to have, I did not know you would have to leave while it was being done. But, it good to be safe. Love the turkey video.
    Happy September! Take care, have a great day!

  11. Good luck with the insulation project!

  12. Husband is currently embarking on what we are calling the insulation project. He, and our son, and our daughter and her boyfriend, and some friends of son, over the course of a few weeks have dug out half of our old (old!) basement and now husband is creating a mini- wall of cement to be able to attach a stud wall close to the old original stone foundation. Then insulation will be applied, as well as a new cement floor overall poured. This should have been done years ago, but with increasing heating costs, it has to be done now. Good luck with yours! -Jenn

  13. So where do you go when you and all of your crew have to leave the premises? You still haven't told us what you are planning to do with the extra space :)
    Love your Wild Turkeys and so fun having them in your yard. We had them around the farms when I lived up north, but nothing so exciting where I live now ... I sure miss all of the nature I was surrounded with before we moved:(
    I envy you for your wonderful, peaceful surroundings ...

  14. Good morning, You are making lots of progress on your basement project Rain-good timing just before winter
    Hugs from the lake

  15. Sounds very sensible not to be in the house while the basement is spray-foam insulated, hope it goes well.

    All the best Jan

  16. I hope you make it through all this! Of course you will. You are good at everything!

  17. You are very busy, Rain... I see you working on and on.

    Thank you for hosting again. And I love your artwork 😘

  18. I could probably use my whole house spray foamed lol. Will catch up with the videos after the commenting. Elle xx

  19. Cute sketch and a lovely assortment of videos! Continued prayers for a successful renno, XOX
