Happy St. Patrick's Day

Just a note to wish everyone Happy St. Patrick's Day. For a change this year, we did not have a storm on March 17th. In the past years, we have had really bad weather on this date.

Today, I housecleaned my stairway and downstairs hallway. I was not looking forward to it as the ceiling in the stairway is really high and I needed DH's help to hold the ladder so I could reach it. Yahoo, it is finally done!

I have decided that when I am finished my housecleaning, I am going to put my sampler quilt on the frames to do the quilting on it. I never did finish that particular quilt top. I seem to remember that I do have the backing for this one, so I will have to go looking and find it. Once on the frames, I will be able to quilt on it when I have a minute to spare.

I finally got my countertop on and I am really, really pleased with the look it creates. Yes, when it is totally finished in the kitchen, I will post a picture of it. Hopefully, it won't be long now.

As most of you know, DD has moved to Nova Scotia. Well, she has purchased unlimited calling in the Maritimes and DH and I have unlimited Skype calling so it has been really quite nice to be able to talk with her anytime it strikes us. I don't feel that she is so far away now.

Must get going, and do a couple of things before I sit down to watch TV.

Take care everyone!

I'm Back

Folks, sorry for the absence, but due to a number of things happening all at once, my computer just laid there unattended.

As most of you know, Cathey went to Regina last week to her husband's graduation. So, as all good grandparents, we took care of Brie, our granddog. She was spoiled a little as all she wanted to do was lay on my lap - no objections from me.

On top of that, we are still in the renovation mode but we are getting closer to the finish. Thank heavens. Our kitchen cabinets are all done except for the countertop which we were supposed to get last week, but due to the builder receiving the wrong top from the head company, we are having another delay. The countertop builder had ordered the right top but they sent him the wrong colour. Arghhhh!

While DH was doing the renovations, I started my housecleaning and that is going quite well. All I have left to do is my laundry room, the walls in my guest bedroom, the stairway with the hallways upstairs and downstairs. Then I will be done. I am quite proud of myself as I have cleaned out MOST of the unnecessary things in closets and dressers. We do tend to collect things.

On Tuesday, DH and I went to Moncton to visit his Mom in her new home. She is happier now but still says she would have loved to get back to her apartment. While in Moncton, DH visited his favorite place - Princess Auto, and Fabricville, my favorite place is next door, so that is where I went. However, Fabricville is closing that store at the end of April and they had everything 50% off. Having cleaned out and reorganized my fabrics in my quilt room, of course I had to buy more fabrics when it is 50% off. Love it when a plan comes together.

Also on Tuesday, DD and her hubby made their move to Nova Scotia. We are really happy for them. We will miss them but when they do get internet and a phone line, we will be able to get in touch with them. We do wish them all the luck and happiness in the world in their new adventure and to her hubby, really hope he enjoys his new job.

Well, I must get going as I still have a lot of work to do. Today, it is really beautiful and sunny out but a little cold. It is not cold enough to keep a couple of snowmobiles out on our lake right now.

Have a great day everyone.
