Extreme Gardening

We've had a lot of rain lately, like everywhere else I guess. I did not realise how wet my garden was until I decided to try to pull a weed that was a bit too far for my reach and set foot in the garden, and sunk into 7 inches of black mud! I had to ask for help as I was stuck there, sinking, trying to keep some kind of balance, with my other foot safely in the grass about four feet away. I just could not lift my foot. It had been swallowed by a sinking mud pit. I guess we were quite a sight as he tried to pull me out. Eventually, we heard a big smack and my foot came out, without my sandal. My knight in shining armour was so nice, he stuck his arm in the slimy pit to recover my sandal.Too bad, no camera or video, no proof! I guess the part he liked the most was when he hosed me down. I used to pay a lot of money for mud baths at the spa, now I just have to go roll in my garden!

Katie, this one is for you!

Right Now
Yes it's been forever. I guess I just did not have that much to say and I was figuring out a few things about life...
What am I doing right now : (idea taken from Krista Wells blog to get me to write something!)

listening: birds chirping in my back yard
eating: not hungry right now - yeah!
drinking: water
wearing: grey pants and pink T-shirt (Life is Good) - for sure!
feeling: happy Dave is coming back tonight - sad for those who have to wait for their honey to come back from their travels
weather: grey and warm - not raining right now
wanting: chips - I can even hear them calling my name from the store... oh my!
needing: time to finish my December Daily (so slow) and finish cleaning up my scrap room
thinking: about my friend who is sad
enjoying: a little reprieve from the pain thanks to Voltaren
wondering: what I’ll have for dinner tonight
counting : the tulips in my back yard = 11 and lots to come
hoping : the week-end will be nice
wishing : happy anniversary to my hubby - 7 years tomorrow
planning : to go back soon to a chick flick with my chicklets!

So there you go Katie, I BLOGGED!
Love you girly!

Card Avalanche

I am really alive : 2 posts in 2 days....
As I mentioned in the previous post, I made about 200 Xmas cards this Fall because my sister-in-law and I wanted to participate to various Christmas Bazaars. Sales are so-so this year since people are afraid to go out because of H1N1 (it reminds me of the "One of a Kind Show" in Toronto, where Dave and I went to help my aunt, that year there was a strike of Toronto municipal employees and ...SARS - no crowds, unfortunately.....)
So here is a sample of my cards :

Kitchen - Before and after



Don't get a heart attack, I am still alive. I guess we were too busy with the move and scrapbooking, and making cards and trying to solve our house related problems. It was not easy, you have to hound those people, but we are slowly getting things done. We also started to like the house. At first, we were not too sure. The kitchen is getting there. The molding has to be repainted and 4 cupboard doors have a mind of their own and are warping... they will be replaced.
So this is the kitchen before and after. The before version had one advantage, my husband got used to where things were put away!I really like my after kitchen.
I won't make promises about posting, so I won't break them. To come : some of the 200Christmas cards I made for different Xmas sales (that's not going too well because there very little attendance on account of H1N1 - oh well), my December daily, etc.
