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!

~Happiest when stitching~
