Tired but satisfied

It has been a busy, busy fall so far. And yes, in Manitoba, I can still say fall and not winter. We had +14 today. A perfect day for washing windows and playing outside with my grandboys. And no, My daughter has not had her baby yet, but any day, any hour, any minute, it could happen.

I have been battling a slow moving cold. And just when I thought it was all done with, I think I got a touch of the flu. H1N1? I don't think so, but who knows. It was fairly mild. Just enough to make you feel… Continue

Autumn in the air.

After having a fabulous September with temps way above normal, we have returned to more normal, crispy fall days.

I have had abusy couple of weeks, but finally managed to get back into my quilting room yesterday and finish the machine quilting on two lap quilts. These are for VQC cancer patients. Today I began the quilting process on an heirloom wall hanging that I am doing with handkerchiefs that my MIL saved throughout her lifetime. When she passed away, we found enough of them that each… Continue

Awesome storms.

Wow, what a night we had last night. We have finally got the heat of summer, but only for a couple of days yet. And when that heat arrives, the humidity soars right along with it. It is days like that, that I stay where it is cool and quilt.

But that is not what I was going to tell you about. Around 5a.m. this morning, I woke the the low grumbling of thunder. Well, if it was going to rain, I had to go and close the windows to make sure that we would not have a lake inside once the… Continue

At last, it is done...

Well, the wine is bottled and stored away for another ccouple or three months to give it a bit more time to mellow and mature. It is beautiful to look at...it has an orangy blush color. I used rhubarb, prune plums and saskatoon/blueberries in the making and the plums have sure given it a lovely color. Reminds me a bit of a sunset just as the colors are beginning to fade a bit. And hey, the taste is pretty good, too. Not bad for my first attempt at wine making. I don't know if I would ever have… Continue

Wet again

Well, for the third time this year, the creek down the road from us is overflowing it's banks. The birds that like to nest in the willows and reeds in wet ditches and creek banks will likely have lost their nests again. Luckily, most of the ducks and geese that nest around here have hatched their eggs already and all this extra water will not mean much to them. We had over at least 5 inches of rain in the last day and a half. So, we are experiencing overland flooding as all this water makes its… Continue

Love the photos very much.. So looking forward to getting a few flowers in the ground.

How random occurences in my life leads me places. Yester as waiting for bus front my house met my backlane neighbor silly as it is we hardly see each other all winter. Yester was so special I lost track of my agenda and ended up escorting her via transit all way to her work.. Backtrack and ended up in a totally different agenda.. Walked into a temporary employment agency knowing very well the same old story of no work avail.. Turned out I was called back for an interview and looks promising.. So God has plans for me, and have learnt to trust his destiny..  But so so grateful of my knowing so many quilting friends.

The quilt show will be over today, and my house will need some cleaning

and more laundry, start cooking meals ahead of time and back to the

regular quiet grind of staying home, and maybe starting plants indoor

ready for May/June planting.. Doesn't fell like spring yet but all is to change they say next week.

I grew up in Hay River.  I visited Inuvik with our high school debate team in 1980 or 81.  We also flew into Aklavik, yikes.
