"UR blog is sad and lonely, it needs an update"Well, I had a big assignment due today, but now it is done, so I will try and make my blog less lonely. Ok so now I have to figure out what I have done in almost a whole month! So I decided to go to the photos on the computer for a reminder
This day was an open house for the foundation I am on the board for. We are trying to open for the 2012 celebrations. We received a heritage grant to help us do this! If you are interested in more info, please see our website.
Here is a picture of the limestone building that has been named "the barracks" by the community
Right beside where I work is the Ganaraska River in Port Hope, or the Ganny as it is called. In the spring and fall it becomes flooded with fish making their way back up stream to lay eggs. I have always felt that these fish have something against me, because whenever I am told they are running, I never see them. On the 7th, my co-worker Kim told me to get out there and take a look, but to go down stream a bit... WOW!!! am I ever glad I did!! Do you ever feel sorry for these poor fish... very hard work!

Oct 8'10HOCKEY IS BACK!!!!!!!
My hubby and I got tickets for opening night of the Ottawa Senators. They played the Buffalo Sabres, who we saw play in April. Well they did loose, but It was a really great time. This time we got cheap tickets, but I thought they were great since you could see the whole ice.
GO SENS GO!!!
After the game, we stayed over at Dani's house.
Today I joined Dani to her WW meeting (all about thanksgiving dinner). We then picked up the boys (Blair and Todd) and went for breakfast. Then while the Boys played video games, Dani and I got to do some stitching. We also took an hour and went for a really nice block around the area where she lives.
She got some great pics, but here is one that I took
That night we enjoyed amazing Lasagne al la Dani.
Today was an early morning as we were still in the Ottawa area, and needed to be home to work on my first BIG assignment for my CGA course. We also stopped in Kingston to get some groceries from Costco.
The assignment took pretty much all day and it was another late night - bed after 11:30
Edit - I got my marks back today (Oct 23rd) ...... 42/50 - Not too bad :)
HAPPY TURKEY DAY CANADA!!
I stayed in my PJ's most of the day and did some stitching. Around 1pm we started on our way to Oshawa for dinner at my mother in law's. We had to take a detour (crazy 401 traffic) but managed to get there only about 15 minutes late. I did get to enjoy some time with my niece and nephew, but didn't take any pictures.
Friday night I made my way to Rebecca's for her annual stitchy weekend. I arrived just after 7pm and got my area all set up. Dani and Christin arrived soon after.
Saturday was a nice relaxing day of stitching. We were also joined by Kathy, Beatrice, and Barb.
Not really a stitching pic, but I loved Beatrices socks!!
On Sunday, I left around 1pm and we drove to Brighton for an open house for Adriana, Beatrice's 94 year old mom. She is an amazing stitcher, and had no idea how much she has actually done. We all want to grow up to be just like her
And we are finally at today!
This morning I slept in a bit, since I had a very late Thursday night (assignment) and a very early Friday morning (Gym). Around 1pm hubby and I got back to work on our 2nd assignment. We finished around 9pm and then I started on this blog :)
This morning I also finished a small x-stich I did for Halloween.
