HAPPY 2012

Beauty.. Freshness.. Dreams.. Truth.. Imagination.. Feeling.. Faith.. Trust..
This is begining of a new year! 

Was your 2011 wonderful?  We had a good, busy year. 

It's with optimism and a smile that I look forward to 2012 and reflect on 2011.  The next few months will be cold and wintery here in Ontario, a good time to buckle down to finish projects and start new ones.  With that in mind I'm going to take a planned winter break from blogging.  I'll return in spring, hopefully with projects to share and more time to spend blogging myself.  I plan to keep visiting all my friends in the blogosphere and enjoy your wonderful posts.   Stop in to say hi on Flickr if you're so inclined.  See you back here when the daffodils bloom! 

May 2012 will be all you wish for and more.  Live, love and laugh much, tell those you care about you love them and find happiness in your day.  Renee 


you may live in Canada, if...

Sharing a little Jeff Foxworthy whimsy as we head into winter.  Here's what Mr. Foxworthy has to say about Canadians, during a recent appearance at Caesars in Windsor :
If someone in a Home Depot store Offers you assistance and they don't work there, You may live in Canada.
If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, You may live in Canada.
If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation With someone who dialed a wrong number,........................... You may live in Canada.
If 'Vacation' means going anywhere South of Detroit for the weekend, You may live in Canada.
If you measure distance in hours, You may live in Canada.
If you know several people Who have hit a deer more than once, You may live in Canada.
If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' In the same day and back again, You may live in Canada.
If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow During a raging blizzard without flinching, You may live in Canada.
If you install security lights on your house and garage, But leave both unlocked, You may live in Canada.
If you carry jumper cables in your car And your wife knows how to use them, You may live in Canada.
If you design your kid's Halloween costume To fit over a snowsuit, You may live in Canada.
If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km -- You're going 95 and everybody is passing you, You may live in Canada.
If driving is better in the winter Because the potholes are filled with snow, You may live in Canada.
If you know all 4 seasons: Almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction, You may live in Canada.
If you have more miles On your snow blower than your car, You may live in Canada.
If you find -2 degrees 'a little chilly', You may live in Canada.
If you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your friends, you definitely are Canadian and proud to be ♥ ♥ ♥



A little sunshine in our back yard.

And the last of the tomato harvest.  
May your day be sunny and bright! 


mani pedi

Nicole and I had some spa fun this afternoon to start our Labour Day weekend.  Mom and daugher mani-pedi - what fun!  Yeah, that's gray polish on my toes...  It's really taupe-brown-ish, kinda...  gray.

Hard to believe it's already the last weekend of the summer.  We're in the midst of a crazy heat wave that blew in with severe storms.  The high today saw a humidex of 41C (105F).  Crazy is the only word for it.  Tomorrow and Sunday are more of the same with a huge drop for Labour Day Monday to only reach 16C (61F).  A tornado touched down last week about 5km from us in Cambridge, damage was limited but Goderich was not so lucky.  Hoping any of you in or near tornado areas are safe and well.  We are Not a tornado area, normally.  It's really unusual for us to have really severe storms - winter excepted.  This summer has brought a lot of strange stuff.

In hopes of cooler temps, I cast on a little something for myself to ease back in to knitting.  Toast!  How do I love thee??  Finally a pair for me.  Knit in Cascade Heathers "Oatmeal".  I can't wait to wear them.  Soon, soon, very soon - I hope.  Autumn is my favourite time of the year. 

Happy September everyone!  Be well and enjoy a lovely long weekend!
