April 24, 2017


LOL, this totally fuzzy picture is my favourite of the day. It was a very busy Sunday. I spent the early day working on classes. Then we had a tree assessment to see about cutting down some branches to make it safer and whoa, it was expensive and a lot of work and worry. I'm not sure what we're gong to do - other than get a second estimate! Then Justin and I went downtown to do some clothes shopping. He really needed some spring/summer gear. We were pretty successful, which was great. I actually went out with my glasses on, as you can kind of see. My allergies have been so bad there was no putting my contacts in! Hopefully that will pass soon.


It was nice to have company over! Jamie and Dad came by for a visit and it was nice to kick back, relax and hear (and tell) lots of stories. And eat, of course!


Here is the crummy so-called "gourmet" mac & cheese I got at Make It! over the weekend which overall bored me to tears. There were some highlights though and none of them were food (pickles that burn your mouth, drinking vinegar by accident...). Wish I could say the rest of the weekend was an improvement but... it wasn't.

Sounds like a fun and busy weekend for both of you! :) Glad you got out shopping Jamie and fun you were hostess Shannon.

That's an awesome picture Jamie! You both look so happy! Sounds like it was a really good day , but one where you got a lot of good stuff done (and had some fun from the looks of it!).

Eep, sounds like a rough weekend Suzie. Sorry to hear Make It wasn't a fun experience and didn't hit the mark. Glad to hear there were some highlights mixed in.

It is a super cute photo of you two despite the blurriness!

Thanks Shannon. I think I blew a fuse doing too much stuff and most of it wasn't worth it. Gotta be more selective from now on.
