Quiet Weekend Celebrating A Belated Easter and A Special Puppy!


Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! I have to say, this was a really great weekend! It was FULL of rest and recuperating!

Friday started with our tradition of Pizza night! I have continued on with my vegetarian ways when it comes to pizza! I just don’t see the point of eating pepperoni if I really can’t even taste it! So, instead I LOAD up the veggies!

After supper, Ryan and I settled in for a movie at home! We watched A Time To Kill! A phenomenal movie with great acting and story!

Time to kill

Saturday morning Ryan and I were up fairly early. We got our days started with a quick workout and a leisurely breakfast afterwards. It was hard to tear my husband away from the TV this weekend because of the Masters. As much as I love to watch golf as well, I can’t do it all day long! So, I puttered and did house work in between watching some golf.

That afternoon, we headed to Ryan’s parents house for a delicious meal! Bev cooked a yummy turkey dinner with all the trimmings! I certainly had a turkey coma and slept so hard that night.

The next morning Ryan and I slept in later then we usually do. We both did our workouts and I took a long and leisurely bath! Feeling energized I started on some spring cleaning! I emptied out every shelf and drawer in my bathroom and re-organized and cleaned it! It is now just how I like it! Everything perfectly lined up and clean!

I decided to paint my nails while watching some TV. I feel like they look like mini Easter eggs now!

With Ryan watching the Masters all day I decided I wanted to get some crafting done! I have had some beautiful material for over a year now ready for a new quilting project! I decided yesterday to pull it out and get started on it!

After a few hours of cutting fabric, it was time to start on supper! It’s a regular occurrence now in this house to have a plate like this out to snack on! Ryan is so hungry while I am cooking supper that he ends up eating these all up without even realizing what he is doing! I’ll get the veggies into him one way or another! ha ha!

Yesterday was a very special day at our house too! We had a puppy that was turning 6! 6 years ago, Tucker was born in Surrey, British Columbia. I was still in school in Guelph but would soon drive all the way out to BC! A few months later, home sickness would rear it’s ugly head and I would fill that empty feeling with a new puppy! Years later and both Tucker and I are home now in Quebec and very happy! He has brought so much joy to my life!

We celebrated by making Tucker his very own mini hamburger patty! And yes, we did loudly sing “Happy Birthday”!

That night, the Masters had gone into playoffs! So, while Ryan and I watched an intense ending to the Masters, I also started putting together some of the blocks of my new quilting project! It felt so relaxing and fulfilling to be crafting again! A sure sign of no more house renovations! My creative juices are flowing into a different avenue!

How was your weekend?



  1. Aww Happy Birthday to the pup! And wow, you have some serious quilting skills. You're going to totally be that Mom that makes all the great keepsakes for her kids. (Sidenote: Maybe you should make some for me and I'll just tell people I did it. Haha)

  2. There is no end to your talents! Love the quilt!

  3. i want a house - with a crafting room - oh wait, I would need to be crafy and no kids...crap, guess thats out of the question! Need to wait until I have a house of my own..and one that has a Stacy Cave...and well I need my kids to be independent and on their own - ya know, that stage that the whining stops and I can actually do things...oh wait, is that like another 18 years...blech!

  4. I've really been wanting to pick up quilting, but I've been nervous to start the cutting. I love the colors you chose! Make sure you post the finished product, I'd love to see it!!
