Tuesday Morning

This morning I'm off to Stratford to help my daughters, Breanna and Sara, move into their new living quarters. Bre will be staying with a friend because she only has a month left until she leaves on her adventures to Las Vegas, Florida and then Calgary. Las Vegas is a vacation with a friend, Florida to visit her brother, and Calgary to be an au pair (nanny) to year old twin boys. She's excited to say the least although she's not sure how she'll survive so far from home! Sara and her room mate have a new apartment so I'll be getting them settled in tomorrow. I'm afraid of how much work is needed to be done before we actually move, so I'm going a day early ; )

On Thursday, I'm having lunch at my house with a friend and that will be so nice! (Wendy, Gail's coming for lunch!) Then, I hope to have my niece over to do some scrapbooking. We're making a CD album together. Then....I have to pick up my husband in London so that he can have the car while I'm away (see next paragraph)

I'm excited about this weekend.......Wendy and I and our mothers are going to Frankenmuth, Michigan to have a couple of days of SHOPPING! Wow, how much fun will that be!!! The four of us have never gone away together overnight. I know we'll have a riot!

Have a great day/week!

This is the front of the place we live in. I think one satellite dish HAS to go!! Tacky-ville!! ; )
The place attached to us is being renovated. He's doing a GREAT job so will be nice when he's done. As you can see, we have a few minor repairs to the fronts as well but it's much better than it used to be when we bought it. I'll have to dig out the photos from 7 years ago!!

Well, tomorrow ended up being 9 days but it's only time, right?
Here's some pics of the place we live in.
It is all one open space with a kitchen and bathroom. We created a "wall" for the bedroom by placing 2 wardrobes and a dresser between the tv area and bed. It works for us :)

Now I'm on to Christmas gift making! That should pretty much fill my days until December 24th!!!

Updating Soon!!

I had totally forgotten about my blogs!! Once I got onto Facebook and then trying to sell our house, then moving and now settling in....I had totally pushed blogs to the back of my mind. Once things get there, it takes someone to jostle my memory and bring them to the forefront!! Yikes, I'm getting old!! Anyway, I hope to get these updated tomorrow with new info and pics. So much is new!!!

Two New Kits and an Album @ Digidollarama

By the looks of it, I was 'seeing red' this month! By coincidence, my 2 newest kits are definitely RED! The great thing about red is that it mixes with black and white so nicely! "The Lady in Red" and "Romance" kits can be combined and they both go really well with Wendy's Basic Black kit available here http://www.digitalscrapping.com/ddr/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=66

Since all the kits at Digidollarama are only $1.00 (WOW), you could get a huge mega kit by purchasing the 3 kits for only $3.00 and combining them!! WHAT A DEAL!!!
