A sad day!

Yesterday at 9:00 p.m. my dear Aunt Thelma left us, she passed peacefully. Finally her struggle came to an end and she is now reunited with Uncle Harry. She and I were blessed with a very close relationship. When I was eighteen years old I spent two weeks with my Aunt and Uncle at the cottage. Apparently before I arrived she said to my Uncle Harry  "What are we going to do with an eighteen year old for two weeks?" They did not need to worry, for me going to the cottage was fun enough. We did other things too, there was a trip to Grand Bend and of course a lunch date at Cosmos. I still visit Cosmos pretty much every time I visit my Mom. We did a lot of other things in my two weeks. What really stays in my mind is what a lady my Aunt was. She spoke perfectly, dressed perfectly, and she treated me like I was so special. From that visit on we were the best of friends, we never had anything but good times when we were together. Two years ago I found a special card for her for Thanksgiving it had a covered bridge on the front and the verse suited her to a tee. Of course when I went to mail it I couldn't find it. Thankfully I found it and this past Thanksgiving she received it in the mail and she did like it. I know I am a very lucky person for having her in my life. She has taught me many things just by what she did and how she did things.
Today heaven received a new angel, and my Aunt and Uncle are reunited. She struggled for some years now and God bless her she is at eternal peace.
Soon I will choose a new cross stitch project it will be my Aunt Thelma project! Stay tuned I still have not decided but I will shortly.

Is it spring yet?

It seems that living in South Western Ontario means the weather is nuts!!!! One day we have rain, one day we have snow, one day we have sunshine. What a rollercoaster.
It seems we have great news about our Brentwood on the Beach retreat, we are totally booked. How great is that? I know that I can hardly wait to pack my bags and get ready to drive. One large suitcase for threads and projects, one small bag for clothes and my swim suit. You have to have your priority's straight.
Thanks Jayne for changing my blog to spring and for adding Johnny Reid songs for my listening pleasure and hopefully everyone else's. This Scotsman sure knows how to sing!
Thanks for checking in. Have a good week.

My Birthday!

Hi everyone, yes today is my birthday! But you know after so many years sometimes you just want to stop counting. My daughters tell me it is just a number. Well I suppose it is but the body is starting to change, the face is gathering some lines. Well enough of the depressing stuff. My Mom has arrived for a visit and as my DH is working tonight Mom and I are off to Red Lobster to have a great meal of Lobster etc.
Tomorrow we are off to my daughters to celebrate with the whole family.
Have a great week end everyone!
