My husband and I went for a drive today...we passed this on the side of the road (granted the road was gravel and in the middle of nowhere)...

I think it looks like a head covered in moss! What do you think? Do you see what I see?? Creeepy!

Here's one of my husband, they don't call him "Superlaner" for nothing ;)

Thursday is the new Friday!

Well, tomorrow is Thursday...but like some of you, it's my Friday :)

Not only is it my Friday..but we are lucky enough at my work to get tomorrow afternoon off! AND I don't mean to rub it in or anything..but I took next Tuesday, Wednesday off as well...which means that yes..I have 6.5 days off for cashing in only 2 days of leave!! Now that's what I call planning!

So, if I have 6.5 days off..what are my big plans you ask?? Ya..ahh nothing. I've got nothing planned.

I have some ideas...

* meet up with my friend Tina to go for a run..probably around the lake..that is one of our favourites

*card making - i'm eager to create a little with my cupcake and owl punch :)

*i'd like to take my camera out early one morning to this lake off the highway we pass on my way to always has this low lying fog/mist and often has a gaggle..of swans (gaggle??)

*dinner with my folks

*finish my taxes (booooo!!)

*catch up a little on my PVR'd General Hospital - yes it is definitely a guilty pleasure (insert embarrassed face here!!)

*figure out how to put tabs on my blog...there are so many things I would like to do with this blog...and although i consider myself computer literate..I am no HTML wiz :(

Anyways, the last time I posted my weekend goals here..I actually stuck to them ..or close to it here's hoping I do the same this time! I'll keep you updated ;)

Oh and p.s - I mailed the quilt off yesterday!



Here's another picture of my Charlie...look at his tail..think he wants me to thow his ball?? He's so cute :)

Ready to go!

I heard from my BFF the other day..which has made me more determined to get that quilt in the mail...

So I sat down tonight and created this card to send with it.

The owl punch makes these little guys SOO easy! And I just love having their eyes all wonky :)

I'm wrapping it up tonight and sending it tomorrow!

I really need to stop procrastinating :(

Happy Sunday everyone :)

It's almost 2pm, and it seems like I've already been through a whole day! I've done laundry and dishes and the dreaded ironing.

The weekend seems to be going by way too quickly!

Yesterday my daughter was in a regatta so we were at the lake early..then we had some family and friends over for dinner, birthday cake and a little "apples to apples". Have you ever played that game? We bought it a few weeks ago, and love it :) So easy and so fun...there is always at least one person who laughs until the tears come!

One thing about yesterday that I'm really excited about is this material I bought :)

I think I might use it as a centre panel for a quilt...but who knows..maybe I'll get adventurous and try making a "real" one!

I find the hardest part is picking the colours and patterns..what would you suggest to use with this?
