Seven more sleeps

Hi everyone,
I am getting very excited, my DH and I leave in a weeks time for the coast of Maine. We have not been in many years and we are both so excited to make the trip. We will be travelling through New York State, Vermont, New Hampshire and then to Maine. We have no plans other than to drive and to explore the back roads and to enjoy the fall foliage. The mountains are always so beautiful this time of year. We may travel north from Maine through the White Mountains and on to southern Quebec where we are both originally from and maybe surprise some friends with a visit before we return home to southwestern Ontario. Pray for good weather, it would be nasty to have rain at the ocean.
I have been working on my 4 season wreath, it is slow going but what is done is quite pretty. Stay tuned for a photo. Maybe tomorrow.
Have a good week everyone!
Two special birthdays are coming up soon, one 50 one a little older!!!!! (Stitching Sisters)

Fall is in the air

Here it is Monday again, I had a great week end, my cousin Sheila came for a visit. We had such a good time, had a few glasses of wine, had a good dinner and then a few more glasses of wine. What could be better???? We went to sleep rather early for us and slept in later on Sunday. Had a nice visit in the morning and then she was off. It is an hour drive for ger and knowing her she had a few things to do when she got home. She is a busy bee and has a lot of irons in the fire as my Grandma use to say.

My DH and I are planning a trip to Maine the first week of October, our anniversary is on the 14th and we have decided to take off. DH proposed to me in the White Mountains in New Hampshire, so we always like to go back and visit some of our favourite places. This time we are going to go all the way to the coast. We also love the ocean and it has been many years since we have been to Maine. We really have no plans on where, we will decide when we get there. Hopefully we find a place to rest our bodies when we get there.

Tonight is a quiet night, my hubby is working, he will be back around 7:00 and then he is off to bed he has an early morning (middle of the night) drive tomorrow 3:00 a.m. Yes Jayne I know for your hubby that is the norm. We will see how mine does.

Well I am off to do some stitching and watch a few of the new shows. Dancing with the Stars and maybe Lonestar. I can hardly wait for NCIS and all the CSI's.

Happy Birthday Maddison

Friday September 17th my oldest grandaughters birthday. We are so proud of her. This is her first year of high school and she was terrified at the thought of going to a new school. But all is well, she is getting into the routine and has met some new friends. It does not seem possible that she is growing up so fast. It seems like yesterday that she was a little bundle of joy in her pink sleepers with the bunny ears. She would be mortified by those photos. We celebrated her birthday last week with her Gr. Grandmother with cake and ice cream. Tomorrow I will pop over with another little gift and maybe a cupcake. She said vanilla is her favourite. How boring is that??? Oh well it is her choice. Happy birthday Maddison!

I spent the afternoon stitching  on a project for a friends birthday today. Two stitching friends have their birthdays on the same day and it's coming up soon. I think I had better hustle. I was not feeling my best today, felt a little down. I have a leg that gives me a lot og grief and today was not a good day. I am blessed with good friends that care about me and one in particular was a good listener today. Thank you so much J, I really felt like poop and you did make me laugh. The rain all day did not help my spirits either, was that a depressing day! Tomorrow is Friday so the work week is pretty much over. My cousin Sheila is coming for a weekend visit and I am so looking forward to seeing her. She only lives an hour away but sometimes our lives get in the way of our time spent together. She is a great lady and has so much to share with everyone.
Have a great week end everyone!

Summer of 2010

Labour Day is always a sad holiday for me. It means the summer is pretty much over and that means the days of sitting out on our deck and enjoying our beautiful back garden are coming to an end. It means that my lovely grandchildren will all be headed back to school. My oldest Maddison will be entering high school. Chloe is going into grade 7, Benjamin into grade 4. and my youngest Mackenzie will be in grade 1. She thinks she is very grown up, grade 1 is a very big deal for her. I hope her teacher has had a restfull summer, she is going to be busy with that little one. I always say she is small but mighty. I am going to miss those days were they just stop in for a few hours and we spend time together. But there will be sleep overs this winter I am sure. After all Mom and Dad do have to go out once in a while and then they get to party with Grandma and Grampa.
Yes the temperature has fallen here and would you believe it I had to put on a sweatshirt. Wow it has been  a while sice I have worn one of those. Steve is watching tennis and I am spending some time on the computer.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe Labour Day. Travel safe, don't take any chances. Be aware!
Happy Holiday Everyone! Take time to stitch............
