Things Are Picking Up...

Well, just a short post...but thought I better at least stop by for a quick "hell-o". 

Ebay sales have perked up again...a good thing.  Nothing like before Christmas...but at least it's encouraging. I sold a pattern...now wished I would have saved it for myself!!  LAMB CHOP!!!  Isn't he the cutest thing????

We've had another busy week...made a trip to Brockville to visit  hubby's Mom and Dad.  A nice trip...but we never seem to have enough time to go visit our friends. 

We're once again thinking of moving back to the area...but I sincerely doubt it will happen.  We go through this EVERY spring.  I have all but given up hope we'll  EVER get out of HERE!!  Dreams are free...and I once again have visions of living out in a rural area...with cows in near-by fields...a garden and the joy of living in my "own space".   I'm certainly not getting any younger. 

Geee....I sound like I'm on a real "downer"...not really.  Just one of those days...

Keep dreamin'.....

I'm Too Sexy For My Hair....

A day at the "spa" for Oggie Dog.  Nails done, bath and a hair cut!!  Isn't he handsome!!

Not much news over here.  Have been crocheting...and have a few more neck warmers and hats finished.  (Will share next time!!)  Think I'll start on a scarf tonight.  I'm NOT going to let the holiday craft and hobby shows "sneak" up on me this year!!  NO WAY!!

DH and I went over to The States last week.  Spent a few nights at our "favorite" little spot in Northern Michigan.  Went to a few antique stores and Walmart, naturally.  You have to remember that we have to drive 2 hours to get to the closest Walmart here in Northern Ontario.  Isn't that a shame to be so isolated????    Anyway, I only bought 1 skein of cotton yarn...lovely new varigated color.  And, of course, bought a few fat quarters of fabric.  I plan on making some quilted coasters.

So that's my news....nothing too exciting...but no complaints.  Oh yeah...I DO have one.  I sure wish it would warm up!! 

Keep smiling...see you soon!!

Where does the time go??  Do I waste too much of it doing idle things...or am I constantly busy???  I just can't answer that question...

Well, not alot of activity around here.  I think I have the hubby convinced that I need a raised vegetable garden built....it's now in the planning stage.  Poor guy has sooo MANY projects on his plate, I almost feel bad asking!!!

Work is work.....you know how that goes.  I DID give my two week notice on Saturday...but decided to stay...just a bit longer.  At least until some of these projects are completed. 

We went out to visit our best friends last week....and on the way out, I saw something "white" dash across the road.  It stopped in the bush, just a few feet from the edge of  the road...a beautiful snow shoe rabbit...which turns brown during the summer months.  I've seen lots of rabbits in my time, but NEVER a snow shoe bunny!!  (I didn't think to bring the camera, so "borrowed" this photo from the internet.)

Ahhhhhhh...something new!!!
