HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my husband Larry, and it's snowing out!! Larry is one year younger than me, I turn 50 on March 1. I do not feel 50, I don't think I look 50, and unlike a lot of 50 year olds....I am still raising fairly young children...but that's what happens when you are 28 when you meet your soul mate.

Anyway, back to the title of this post. Larry is 49 today. I don't think we are doing anything special, as our son will be 14 next week, so we kind of decided that we would all celebrate together on Monday and go out to supper at a local restaurant.

And the other part of the's snowing AGAIN! We had been so spoiled the last few winters with not much snow...not this year! Seems like every second day it is snowing.

I think after hubby has left for work and all children have caught their buses, I will head on down to my sewing room. I want to get a start on youngest's Swedish Weaving blanket. I have made a blanket for my other two children for their Birthday' now it's her turn. Her Birthday isn't until July, but I will work on it in my spare time when she isn't around.

Anyway, oldest DD is waiting for the computer, so I will end this for now.

Let's see what else we can do today!!

Okay, got my photo added to the profile, now let's see if I can add some of my cross-stitch to this post. Cross-stitch is what keeps me sane (hubby begs to differ at that!!)
WooHoo!! I did it! This is a small cross-stitch that hangs in our family says "Nova Scotia"...and was by Victoria Sampler...I believe.

Greetings from wet Eastern Canada!!

Okay, today is the big day that I plan on getting to know this blogging thing!
I hope to add some photos today as well.

Tomorrow is hubby's Birthday.....mine is on Saturday and our son's is next week!! Busy Birthday week here.

Yesterday I went to Blanket Club with my cousin...okay, there was just the two of us, but it's a great chance to enjoy tea, sweets, lunch and ofcourse work on our swedish weaving blankets!

Last night I worked on my "Isabella's Garden" cross-stitch while watching American Idol.

Good morning from Eastern Canada

I do believe that I will enjoy blogging, when I get the hang of it. I think I also need to be comfortable writing in it...right now it's still a "little weird"

I was just looking ahead at the weather forcast and it is going to snow on my Birthday (Saturday)....:( I was so hoping we could go for a drive that day. Oh well, maybe the forcast will change.

I have"Blanket Club" today. You will be hearing about this probably on a weekly basis. It's a Swedish Weaving club started by my two cousins and myself....we meet at my cousin's house and spend a few hours gabbing and weaving. It's become one of the high points of my week. I enjoy it alot.

Well, off to wake the kids up....will probably add some more later.
