I mentioned that I was going to a friends camp at the lake on Monday. There were 5 of us chickies that gathered for a lovely lunch, lots of talk and laughter then supper before we went home.
It rained so hard all morning but by mid afternoon the sun shone and it was beautiful.
The chickies ~ that's me on the right. Our hostess, Jan, is holding a copy of our
new study book called Boundaries.
I hear it's a good study. Has anyone heard of it or read the book?
I guess you all heard about the little earthquake in Virginia that was felt all the way up here in little old Fredericton. It was shaky enough to cause 2 or 3 office towers to take a break in the afternoon and go out to the sidewalk.
This is the Fredericton skyline. Small city and small office towers.
Our office towers are not really towers. The tallest is 9 floors. I like small cities with small office towers.
I didn't feel a thing out here in the country. We did have an earthquake here in 1983 I think, that shook our house badly. We thought it was a chimney fire. A few hairline cracks appeared in the sheetrock afterward but that's all.
Oh, I think we might just have us a bit of a storm on Sunday night into Monday too. I guess Hurricane Irene 'might' make an appearance. Then again she might not. One never knows with these storms that seem to travel at will from left to right. So, we could get about 100 mm of rain or maybe 30 mm. And we'll no doubt get some strong winds and it will be warm and humid. I will have to put all my hanging baskets and plant pots in the garage for protection. I want them to keep blooming for another few weeks.
I am getting ready for the arrival of our daughter and grandson next week too. And our son-in-law comes the following week. I have a lot to do yet, lists to be scratched off, food to buy (got the diapers already), cleaning, scrubbing, laundry. Some of the cleaning can't be done until the dog is removed from the premises.
Sir sheds-a-lot can't be in the house with a crawling baby for almost 9 days!
So, Marshall will be boarded at our son's
house where he can play with his buddy, Buckley. I could get used to that.
Murray installed the new over-the-range microwave last night with a little help from 'moi'.
We celebrated by cooking a bag of popcorn! Corny, I know.
But it was after 10:00 and we were tired.
The dishwasher is in place but not hooked up yet.
I really hope it can be hooked up and running on the weekend but...
I'll let you know.
Almost done. Still the backsplash to do and some under cabinet lighting
and the dishwasher hooked up.
Did I mention that hubby has to go on a business trip on Monday
and Tuesday? Oh yeah. Just when there's a hurricane coming and I could
use some help with the cleaning. And, we have company coming!
Did I mention that??
And I have to go to physio and grocery shop on Tuesday too and then
come home and clean and cook and mow lawn. Just kidding!
I don't have to mow lawn. But, I will be busy!
So, I may be scarce around here for a while. I've got lists to scratch off.
This little guy just might make it all worthwhile. Don't you think so?
I love that smile. (he has 6 teeth now)
See you soon. I hope.
I'm going to scratch off 'write blog post' on that list.
Blessings and hugs,
