Thank You for the Wishes

Since Pumpkin, aka Cathey, my DD, set me up with a blog, she knows my password and has once or twice posted things on my blog. As most of you have seen on the latest blog posted, she posted a Happy Birthday announcement to me on it. As a result, I have received birthday wishes from several of you and I do thank you for those wishes, even if, at my age, I am trying to forget that I am getting older. LOL

We are still very busy working on the renovations. DH has all the painting done except for the trim around the windows which has yet to be put in. Our cabinet doors are presently on order as is the counter top. We have decided on a shaker style door for the cabinets, and have bought glass shelves for the china cabinet with internal lighting. Can't wait to see it finished. I am pleased with the colour we picked for the kitchen walls and with the white cabinets, it looks great.

DD slipped and fell on the ice on Tuesday night and hurt her elbow. As a result, we talked her into coming to stay with us for a couple of days, so Mom can look after her. Since she is moving to Nova Scotia in March, this also gives us a chance to spend some time together before she and her hubby leaves.

My MIL is settling in very nicely in the Special Care Home that she ended up in. We are so pleased to see her taking part in the activities, and she sounds great on the phone when we call her.

Must go as I am now the chosen one to have Brie on my knees for a while and it does make it more difficult to blog.

Thank you again for all the good wishes and everyone have a great week!

A belated happy birthday to you! Hope it was a good one. It sounds like your kitchen is coming along nicely. When it is finally finished, you can celebrate.

Heh, heh, heh! That's why you shouldn't give me that important information ;o)

Thanks for looking after Brie and I. It's nice to have a break and be spoiled for a few days :o)
