Before The Isolation Began...











Hello everyone...

A lot has happened since my last post...

I sincerely hope that all of you are well...secure...and safe at home...

About a week before we were all told to stay at home...we had a great sleepover and
cottage visit with our dear Miss V...
At home here...she loves to put the bird seed out for our birds...And wear my boots to do this! hahaha!!!
It was a great day for a drive...and we had a wonderful time together...
As always...she found huge pieces of Beach Glass...💚💚💚

                                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have been busy crocheting...finally finished another one for myself!!
A lovely creamy colour...soft and squishy...and I learned a lot of new stitches!!
I am also busy on one for my Grandsons First Birthday coming up the end of May...hopefully we will be able to see him by then...🙏
We do Facetime a lot...he is crawling and climbing everywhere!!
Quite a little character...💙


On Sunday March 8th...our Miss V was baptized...long time coming...but well worth the wait...and she was thrilled...we all went to the church, and had a lovely family lunch in Burlington at a gluten-free restaurant...
She and her wee cousin Miss N, have a very special bond...💖..which I hopes continues for years to come...family is the best...forever!!!
Just look at those 2 beautiful girls...😇...and both with pink shoes!!💞
The day was sunny and warm...
That was the last time we have been together, or seen our grands.. up close ...to kiss and hug... 
My son set up a 4 way Facetime...and we were all talking at once...so nice...
Hope to do that every weekend...
My son and DIL are working from home...SIL working from home...
Schools closed indefinitely...
Only essential services as of Midnight tonight...
Hopefully we can contain this virus...if we all...JUST STAY HOME!!!

Thanks to all the Healthcare workers...cashiers at the grocery stores...people stocking the shelves...mail people...garbage pickup...the list is neverending...

              BUT YOU CAN HELP TOO!!!!!!!!!!

                 *** S T A Y   H O M E*** .............please!! 👍
 









Tell me what you are all doing to stay busy at home...

         Are you alone???   Are you staying in???

                Take care my friends...

                       See you soon.....

March Came In Like A Lion.........❄️💨💨























Hello Everyone...

March is here...can hardly believe it... February was fairly mild...with plenty of beautiful Flowers to help brighten things up...

My bird watching has continued...and you can see Mrs Cardinal had quite a hairdo on that windy last day of February...as my Boyfriend used the plow to clear the snow...very windy for days after!!

Today is raining...7C...hopefully all of the snow will melt...
and Spring will enter the picture shortly!!

Cottage is an everchanging landscape...after the Nov 1 hurricane hit, we never know what we will find down there...lots of damage still to be repaired...stones to be removed from gardens...new furnace and water heater to be installed...I know our kids will get down there with us, and get things cleaned up!! 

Hope you are well...the News is a pretty scary place right now...stay safe!!

Primulas are courtesy of my daughter Erika...love them!!

Been busy in the kitchen...not too many pics...but this soup that I made was a real WINNER!!! Turkey meatball,orzo and spinach...YUMMY!!!

So...thats about it for now...

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post...

I REALLY do have beautiful grandchildren...💛💙💜

      Enjoy your week...

              See you soon...

                   Cheers! :o)

Wanted To Share...(BRAG)...About My Crochet Projects!!!


































Hello everyone!!!

Yes...I know...Its been awhile again...never seem to have time for FUN things anymore!!

I have finally got these crochet pics put together for you all...

I made 5 Afghans for Christmas presents...PHEW!!! It sure was a lot of work... 

And a few tree ornaments to go along with the blankets...Oh...and a couple of Toques too!!!

The creamy white blanket was for daughter Lissa...

Grey mix was for daughter Erika...

Purple and green was for Miss Vivian...

Yellow...green and blue was for Miss Nora... 

Blue mix with some tan was for Master Kingsley...

I also crocheted some matching stars, that they could hang on their trees...

The Mid Century looking ones were for my son Ryan...who loves ANYTHING Mid-Century....

I made the Gnome with the red hat for Erika...and a Skull for my Lissa...who loves anything with Skulls!!! :o) 

It was a lot of work...but very rewarding...and it kept my brain occupied!!

The last pic...shows one that I started a few weeks back...for ME!!!!

There are a lot of new and different stitches in it...challenges me!!

     SO...the weather has been kooky so far in 2020...warmer than normal...hardly any snow where I live in Southern Ontario...

      As we did not get to go to Florida this Winter...this weather is just fine with us!!! 

    I celebrated a milestone birthday last week....70!!!!!!!!!!

I do appreciate all the well wishes on IG...I will definitely get a few pics put together for a blog post very soon.....

        In the meantime....hope you are all well...

             Thanks for hanging in here with me....

                   See you all soon...

                          Cheers! :o)
