Warm Weather

Well the week end is here and the weather forecast says sunny, hot weather all week end. How great is that. My DH is on a drive to Toronto as we speak, and I am now going to find my threads etc. and I am headed to the back deck to stitch, oh yes I am going to make a cup of tea too.
I am working on the latest monthly ornament, I can't remember the name but there is a snow man on it. It is quite cute. I have been very busy at work lately and I am afraid stitching has taken a back burner. I have been so tired my bed has called me and I have been going to sleep quite early. Hopefully this week will be back to normal and I will get some stitching done.
Hope everyone has a good week end, enjoy the warm weather, soon the snowfalkes will be coming!

Saturday Morning

Good morning everyone, it has been a long week. I was on holidays for three weeks and have just gone back to work. It is a shock to the system. After about an hour it is like you have never been away.

The weather has been pretty warm and humid, we had one day with no humidity but now it is back. I am looking forward to fall with it's cool temperatures and the glorious display of coloured leaves. Fall is my favourite season.

I have been stitching on my monthly Christmas ornament, I am one month behind I am on the snowman, the skater is to follow. Last night I started the border and guess what I had to rip it out and start again. That was a waste of time.

Today I am putting some beads on a poppy ornament that I plan on giving my mother-in-law tomorrow, it is part of her birthday present. She will be celebrating her 80th birthday, We are having the party in London at her daughter and son-in-law's home. We are looking forward to celebrating her big day with her. Birthdays are always a big deal in this family.

Hope everyone has a great week end, drive safely if you are travelling.

I am back home

Hello everyone, I am back from my travels. I went to Ottawa for a couple of days to pick up my grandfathers roll top desk. My Aunt had it and had asked me if I wanted it. The answer was a YES, I have so many fond memories of my cousin Sharon and I colouring and later playing office on that wonderful solid oak desk. It is a beauty. When we get my computer room all straightened out and painted and the desk set up I will post it. It may take awhile. It is going to be a big project.
When I got home from Ottawa I repacked and headed off to Sarnia to spend a few days with my Mom, the weather was very hot . We spent our time at the lake watching all the boats and freighters going up the St. Clair and into Lake Huron. It is a beautiful spot. One morning we picked up my dear Auntie who is soon to be 90 years young and set off to the family cottage to have lunch with my cousin Dean and his daughter Annie. Dean had been fishing up north and had brought back the most delicious pike, pickeral, and perch. It was a very yummy lunch. It was good to see Dean again we do not get to see each other very much even though he only lives an hour away.
I have done zero stitching this week. I hope to do some on Monday. We have company coming for the week end so DH and I will be busy entertaining.
Hope everyone has a great week end!

Off to Ottawa

My daughter Rachel and I are off to Ottawa today to pick up a roll top desk that belonged to my grandparents. It has always held very special memories for me. My aunt phoned me a few months ago and asked me if I would like to have it. Needless to say I was over joyed. So today my daughter and I are off to pick it up, she has a veicle that it will fit in. The sun is shining and it should prove to be a fun trip.
Yesterday was a great day we celebrated our friend Channing's 60th, he loved his 68 Nova. He was over joyed at all the decorations on his truck etc. and his gift. Then we went out for dinner to a Greek restaurant that was excellent, I tried moussaka for the first time it was delicious!
Well I must run I am of to the capital of our great country Canada. I will post in a few days.
