Ramblings of a crazy lady

So I think I just have bad luck. The roofers did not show up and I had 3 people at my house and a Bobcat. I had to be in Calgary that day so I made sure I had back-up people there just in case. *sigh*. I don't think I am supposed to get a new roof.

Spent the Saturday cleaning the house and doing errands.... and I did manage to get the new bears up on Etsy. Sunday I went out to my parents and helped install more cabinets. I'd like to say that is almost done.. but a couple don't fit right so they have to be made again.

I spend Sunday evening on the couch.. it's the first rest I've had in a long time... I just felt icky and could not get warm... But Ghost and Mouse were happy that I was "sitting material" and used me as a place to nap... 40lb's of warm cats helps keep that chill off you! heehee!

So next on my list is making a few xmas ornaments and I want to start decorating the house. It's a bit early but if I start slowly now... I might acutally get there.

I shall try again to leave you with a photo of my latest baby chin!
Hugs, Melanie

New bears! Finally!

I hope you like something and if you are not into miniature's I have a few new
larger guys that will be going up as soon as I can get some photos done.

Bear Hugs,

running around in circles.

Well, I've not been writing much because I've had nothing very interesting to say.... but since things have not gotten much better I will just check in anyway! lol.

I need a vacation.. I am exhausted... it's not going to happen though! lol. I spent the weekend assisting in the installation of the cabinets for my parents kitchen.. they look awesome but we still need another weekend of work there to get it totally done.

Tomorrow, I've finally got someone to do the roof on the house. At least that will be one thing off my plate... as long as they actually show up and do it. I have tomorrow off due to Remembrance day but I have to go to Calgary so that is pretty much a write off day. 6hrs on a long boring road. Blech. At least I don't have to make the trip alone as my Brother and his g/f are going to come with me... I really don't want to drive that far alone.... the big sissy I am.. heehee.

In 2-3 weeks the new floor is going into the upstairs bedroom.. I hope! Seems every time we try to tackle something things go wrong. It's picked out though, it just needs to be ordered and then installed and the closest has to be painted and finished. XX <-- crossing fingers. It has been dragging out forever it would seem.. but will be SO worth it! I've still not had time to get the new bears up for sale.. I have photos of all the minis done. I just need an hour or so to actually get the photos uploaded. Unfortunately I've not had ANY spare time the past month it seems. I really hope things get a little easier soon as I am worn out. I need a break! I want to sew, take some photos or go out shopping one day. *insert pout*

Well I better get back to work here.. I wanted to leave you with a photo of the latest Chinchilla baby that was born here.. but it won't upload so I will have to do it another time.

Hugs,
Melanie
