Our Kitchen Island Continued… And a note on Honed Marble

Hope you had a great weekend!!  We got the teensiest bit of snow (not enough!!) and hung around home for the most part.  The guys worked on our island and I’m loving how it’s coming out:

The reclaimed wood from Lorimer was applied horizontally across the drawer fronts.  It’s almost totally flat when you look at it and the guys did an amazing job of keeping the wood flush on the sides of the drawers.
Here, Spiderman is investigating the newly applied tape “pulls” on the drawers:
(This means he can now get into the drawers himself which makes my life easier.   The kids can grab cups and get water from the spout on the outside of the fridge..  They can ask for a snack and I can say go ahead & get it.  Ahhh drawer pulls- who knew?!!)


Anyway, they still have three more sides to go, so we’re only part way there, but I am so excited with the results so far!!  To read more abou the process, check out my last post here.
 
 
And finally, we have white honed marble on top of the island and I LOVE it.  It’s super-easy to take care of  and looks and feels so good.  I really wish it didn’t have such a bad rap.  (And I have two boys and a baby, we entertain a lot and we are faaaar from careful.) 
 
In general I find that people (who’ve never been exposed to it & are listening to the stone companies)  are so afraid of using it & I feel like they’re really missing out on something special.  Yes, some things can stain it (red wine is the only thing I’ve noticed when it’s sat out for hours on there) but the stains turn into pretty gray marks… I don’t even notice them with the movement in the marble.  I’m actually dying to dirty this thing up a bit.  I’ve left so much stuff on it in the hopes of seeing what it would do and not much has happened though it’s definitely gotten prettier as it’s seen more use of the past couple of months. 
 
 Like what I love about most natural things, life changes it and makes an impression on it. 
 
I don’t get why unchanging and perfection should equal beauty.  I feel the opposite.  (Except about my face haha!! j/k)

5 years for Donlevy following sexual assault indictment

Crown district attorney Cory Bliss told the court that Mark Donlevy’s actions in 2004 were “ambitious, unpleasant, demeaning, humiliating,caution: upsetting content

A Saskatoon judge will decide next month how long Saskatoon massage therapist Mark Donlevy will spend behind bars for raping a woman following their first date during the warm months of 2004.

Sentencing arguments for Donlevy who last month was found guilty of sexual assault regarding the the 2004 incident were made Friday afternoon at Saskatoon Court of Queen Bench. Both the Crown and defence acknowledged prison time is a certainty. The Crown argued for 3.5 years in custody, while your defence argued for three.

Donlevy, 49, Was invited to cope with the court after arguments; He simply said he believed his lawyer had a wonderful job up to now. Heather MacMillan Brown reserved her decision until Nov. 15. Donlevy will continue to live on his acreage outside Saskatoon until then.

Crown prosecutor Cory Bliss told court Donlevy actions in 2004 were offensive, disheartening, Humiliating and depicted a violation of (His victim sexual credibility. Said aggravating factors in the case include such things as Donlevy used physical and sexual force to have unprotected intercourse with the woman, Who was 28 at that time. Her identity is subject to a book ban.

In arguing for a lesser term, The defence said Donlevy has no prior criminal record and is no evidence of bad character. instructed (Donlevy) About how he would best define his view of matters and he used the word He ashamed and recognizes the damage this has caused to all, not to mention his family, support lawyer Alan McIntyre said.

McIntyre further told court that Donlevy suffers from ptsd after serving 19 years in the army, Including a seven month deployment in Somalia. He said Donlevy took anti malarial pills prior to that arrangement, Which exacerbated the indications of PTSD.

Donlevy trial on one count of sexual assault lasted three days in september. The only witness who testified was the woman who were raped.

Now 42 years of age, She testified that she met Donlevy through an online dating service in 2004, When she was 28 and Donlevy was in his mid 30s. She said they met for coffee on a hot summer morning and then went mini golfing, To a drive in movie as well as to a club, where they danced.

She said she felt intoxicated at the club and asked revisit Donlevy place. then, She claimed, She told Donlevy she felt sick and would sleep. She said he led her to his house, removed her clothes, Forced her to perform oral sex on him and then had forced vaginal intercourse with her while she cried and told him she didn want to have sex.

She reported the incident to police in late 2016 after she saw news reports that Donlevy was facing sexual assault charges about his work as a massage therapist. Donlevy is scheduled to stand trial this year on 11 counts of sexual assault related to his therapeutic massage work, regarding the incidents alleged to have happened between 2003 and 2016.

this trial, Donlevy lawyer argued that it could not be said with certainty the woman had not consented to sex because there had been a of sexual practice throughout the date including consensual kissing and close dancing.

He argued the woman decisions for the day including asking to go back to Donlevy place suggested she was in control of her actions.

In her final decision issued last month, MacMillan Brown took trouble with this aspect of the moldovan girl for marriage defence.

Accept this line of reasoning would draw me in perilously close to an area that is rife with myths and stereotypes about victims of sexual assault how they are able to behave, How utilised together react, Why they didn be differently, She claims.

would’ve me buy into the myths and stereotypes that Canadian courts have repeatedly and forcefully rejected.
