bad little blogger



Hey all, sorry I've been a bad little blogger. Actually, I've not really had much to talk about. Went to the reptile show on the weekend, it was very enjoyable... I didn't come come with any new friends even though I would have liked at least one sweet baby. I will have to wait till the next show in August.


I have not been sewing at all. I know, I know. Bah. Work and the house have been taking up all my time as of late. The house looks SO much better though. We have been working solid on the yard since the snow left. Every single time we are out working on the yard a neighbour will stop by to tell us how much better it looks and how happy they are that we moved here.. lol. The people who lived in the house before didn't look after it. Which I guess why it's taking us weeks and weeks to make it look nice!


This was the house before... it was so neglected it hardly looks like the same place. It is hard to believe it was that bad. The neighbours have all said that the previous owners did not do a thing to the place it hing in 4-5 years that they lived there.. scary. No wonder it looked so bad!


Well I better get back to work here! Month end is calling me..... noooo.. heehee.

HUUUGS!

Long weekend = tired back at work day.. lol.

Had a nice long weekend... Minus the sunburn I received on my back, neck and arms. I should have thought SUNSCREEN, being outside in +26c all day! But anyway, we worked outside on the front yard Friday, Saturday and Monday. Sunday I spent most of the day half asleep .. I think I got overheated Saturday. The front yard looks fantastic though. I planted so many pretty flowers, I am quite proud. I should have thought to take some before and after photos.. but I really don't want to remember what it looked like before.. it looked terrible! I promise to take some photos this week and update my past few ramblings with some photos.. lol.

Hugs!

Starting to feel a little better, yay!

Yay, I am finally starting to feel a little better. I am still sick.. but I don't feel like I'm going to die at least.. lol. I am off work as of 5pm today and am sooooo looking forward to this long weekend. It looks to be a beautiful one for once. Usually the May long weekend envolves alot of snow and rain.. But so far the sun is shinning and I am soooo wanting a +26C weekend so I don't have to wear a coat and be frozen. lol.
My Mom and I are planning to plant my front flower bed this weekend. I am pretty excited because this will be the first time planting things in my very own home!
Brad just got back from a few days visiting his Dad. I am happy to have him home.. but I have to admit it was nice and peaceful with just me and the cat. Ghost was happy anyway.. lol. He doesn't like Brad.. heehee.
But anyway, I had better get back to work. I have soooo much work to do before we can close for the weekend!!
Love and Hugs!

Still sick

Geesh, I am still sick. I swear when I get something I have just a horrible time getting rid of it. Anyway, I spent most of the weekend resting. Brad and I did go out to a bead shop on Saturday.
I got some very cool beads at the bead shop that are soon to be turned into miniature lamps. After we had a yummy Donair lunch. We then went to a RC Hellicopter club and watched the guys fly, it was pretty cool.
Sunday we had an early morning and went to my brothers house, his g/f wanted to part with 2 sweet Bearded Dragons.. and since I have 3 already I thought, hey, whats 2 more... heehee. I have yet to get the HUGE tank they gave me with them set up. I need more bedding for it, which I'll grab on my way home from work.
Later Sunday we drove out to my parents for a Mothers Day feast. It was fun but I was not feeling all that well... but I still ate lots. My mom and I planted Sweet pea seeds, which will give lots of flowers in a few months time. My Dad was having fun filling the pond. We made the mistake of trying to put the new fish he had bought my Mom... but the water was too cold for them so we had to make a quick rescue. I'm happy to say all fishes are happy and swimming. We Albertans just can't wait for the snow to melt.... there is still ice is spots.. but my goodness ... a little green lawn, the hint of leaves. Everyone goes a little Crazy.
As for Crazy, I got my little 1/144 scale dollhouse kit. It is sooo cute and tiny.. I am a little worried about all the warnings on the package saying it can cause birth defects and cancer though...... it's a dollhouse.
Anyway, I better get back to work! Love and Hugs!

Sick

So I'm at home sick today. I rarely take a day off sick, I will go to work hacking up a lung. But today I just felt so dizzy when I woke up I didn't think it was a good idea to be driving. So I am in bed and Brad has been looking after me.. Which is really nice. I am thinking about sewing but my arms and back hurt so I think I will continue to just rest. I really don't like missing work so I to get better!
Hope you are all having a good week!
Hugs!
