Leap Day....


I feel like I haven't blogged in months. Its the February thing. But its the last day of February and its time to rejoice!!

First ... reno updates....

Before
Blue walls, yellow floor, white furniture.... very small room, and difficult to keep clean. Especially if you are sentimental and keep every little stuffed animal, love note and burned cd you have ever been given!!!

Now, warm walls, wood floors, homemade quilt (thanks to Gail) and homemade trunk (thanks to Pudgy). I need a headboard, pillow shams, curtains, bedside lamp and a few wall hangings. Other parts of Mick's room are the Closet and the wall unit. Her room is so small, its really hard to take pic.


This past week has been fairly hectic. Michelle and Scott arrived on Monday, just in time to take over my duties around here, so I could go to Halifax with 3 others to attend "THE POWER WITHIN" conference. The four of us hit the city and enjoyed a fun evening of wine and chatting. Two of the other women I was with were mom's of kids, and Sara and I didn't have as many obligations at home, but it was sooooo nice to sit back and chat and enjoy each other. The conference was hilarious on many levels.... from being at the end of the long line (of about 500 people) to get into the seating, and at exactly 8:15am, the doors opened at our end!!! what that a sign or what.... we were the first to get into.... our seats were on the floor less than 100 feet from the stage (we actually paid extra for floor seats) but getting in so early gave us the upfront option. I will touch more on the day in later blogs, but what a great way to start the day. The rest of the week was catch-up for sure, but it was heavenly to have Michelle and Scott here to pay lots of attention to dad....

My sister left this week to spend a month in Myrtle Beach, and my brother has now landed in Wabasca Alberta working on a road project... Amazing how small a world this is. I chatted via MSN with both of them tonight, while Gail spent a night in Emphoria, VA (which is the pipe tobacco my Dad use to smoke!) and Tracy was warm and cozy in his "hut" in Northern Alberta

Michelle and Scott head back tomorrow.... if the weather is cooperative. There break is over and Stephanie's has just started. We won't see Stephanie this break but they will all be here at Easter, so that will be a great weekend for us.

Leap Day..... Stephanie told me, no need to count calories or points today..... its one of those few magical days of the year when those things just don't matter.....
