My week-end is over .......actually...it 's my work week. I only work the week-ends...which is enough. This week-end was extremely busy...I put in a 10 hour day on Saturday and picked up a few extra hours today. My customers were VERY generous...which makes the day easier to deal with.
Not much planned for the week. I do have to work for our neighbor for just a few hours tomorrow...but other than that, the next 4 days are mine. House work is in the plan, as we were gone last week....and it shows!!!
John took the ATV out on the lake this afternoon...wish now I would have gone along for the ride. It looks to be absolutely beautiful. What do you think???
Snow in the forecast for the next few days...hopefully it's just a light dusting. We've been fortunate this year....

Yes...it's been awhile. No excuses...haven't been that busy...just haven't taken the time!!!
Well...here are the mittens I FINALLY finished for a customer of mine. I enjoy working this pattern....fast and easy...warm and comfy. Next project...a tam...in brown tones and turquoise blue. Lovely color combo......something just alittle different.
Went over to the States on Monday....with another couple...and we had a blast!!! The motel was very nice...shopping was fun...and the food was awesome!!! One disappointment...the pool and hot tub were closed for repairs!!! Oh well...there's always next time.
While in Michigan, John got a car "float" for the Met...less expensive that buying it here in Canada. I picked up some make-up...groceries...and didn't bother with alot of items on my list. I did manage to get some Christmas shopping done...found a SALE--70% off sterling silver and gold jewelry. Bought earrings for the 2 oldest grand-daughters. I do hope they like them...actually I think they'll be thrilled!!!
Other than that...not much going on around here...warming up some outside. It's hard to believe we're heading into the 3rd week of February.
Think I'll catch some t.v. time...catch you on the "flip-side"....

It's Friday....not that it really makes any difference. It is the start of my work week...all 15 hours of it. I acutally looked forward to it this morning.
It's been a busy week...we put in an offer on the house we wanted. It was countered...so we were READY to put in another....need I say more?? I think the remodeling on this one is more than John can handle right at the moment. But let me tell ya...once Elliot Lake gets her claws into ya...you might as well hang it up. I'll live and die in this place....I hate it.
On a happier note...I sold another hat....this time the denim blue beret. I just relisted a snow-boarders hat in a blue and green camo. I dropped the price a little bit...maybe that will catch someone's eye!! Stop by my eBay store when you have a minute... http://stores.ebay.ca/Debeeedos-New-To-You-Shop
Still working on those mittens...lost my "mojo"...
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods...until next time!!
