This and That

It's been a fun, busy week of fun. Just keeping busy doing this and that and enjoying spending time with special people.

Saturday and then again today, Sharon and I took to the malls and stores and made great headway on our Christmas shopping. We've enjoyed taking a couple of days to Christmas shop together for as many years as I can remember and they're always days filled with much laughter, smiles and many trips to the car to drop off gifts to share with family and friends at Christmas. Thanks for another great day friend! The time we share together is always treasured. Next year there will be 3 of us! :o) Next year we'll be the ones with the highchair at our table and people will be enjoying Hannah's antics just as we smiled at the adorable little boy who sat near us today. *sigh!* More fun times ahead! Looking forward to sharing them with you!

Saturday evening Rebecca, Brook and I went to see 'Madagascar 2'. Cute movie made all the better by spending time with the girls.

Shared a wonderful evening with K1 last night. Love ya friend! It was so good to spend time together.

Home renos are still going well but I have to be honest and will be very glad when they're behind me. It's great to have the work done but oh my....the dust! Ugh! Won't be sorry to see that portion of the renos gone. Once they're all done I'll post some pics.

Not an overyly exciting post but with work being extra busy for the next few weeks, spare time is minimal. Happy to take the time I have away from the office and share that time with family and friends. Dust? Yah, it's still there but it will still be there tomorrow so I choose to spend my time with loved ones. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it. The truth? Just plain tired of dusting over and over so pretending I don't see it. :o)


  1. Sounds like you're continually having fun!

    I had to laugh when I saw your tags for this post..."misc dribble". HAHAHA! Must have been the dust :o)

    Love ya...can't wait until we have our "movie night" and you can include me in your "dribble"! (Sounds like we're drooling!)

    Have a great day,

  2. It sounds like you are having way too much fun!!!

  3. Enjoy life. The dust you cleaned will not be the important things that count in the long run.

    Keep smilin!

  4. Busy, busy Catherine!

    I have the same view on dust. But the cool thing is that kids love to have their own dust cloth and help get rid of that dust . . . so you're all dusting and spending time together . . . it's a win win situation. :) We'll work on that one with Hannah!


  5. Can't wait to see the reno's when they are done.

  6. Had a lovely time with you on Monday as well. Who'd a thunk that we'd end up at a Dairy Queen in the middle of November??

  7. i love reading your posts. you are always doing something fun

  8. Yeah dusting gets boring and not as fun as going to the movies or Christmas shopping!

  9. Catherine,
    Thanks for visiting as well. I used to meet lot's of Canadian families during the quilt swaps and now and then I run into them on the blogs.

    I am happy that there appears to be referrals coming by late Spring. I found that staying busy was helpful and it looks like you have bunches of friends to do help you create wonderful beginnings with your daughter. How great, I'll be looking forward when you finally have your daughter in your arms!

    Blessings to you and Have a great holiday season.
