It’s Literally Labour Day Weekend

Ah Labour Day weekend – the last weekend of the Summer when every one heads to the beach, cottage or a party. Sunshine, fun and relaxation. Right? Well, maybe for everyone else, but in this house we worked our bottoms off ALL weekend. Mike and his friends built a new railing for our front porch, finished off our stairs and installed closet organizer for me. Mike followed that up by spending a full day staining the new railing! Me, I was pretty busy too. Picking blackberries and making jam (that was the fun part), laundry, cleaning, organizing the library/craft room, re-potting several indoor plants, setting up our entry way, gardening and my first ever big sewing project!

Ready for some photos of the weekend? Here they come!

The new front porch railing – in the process of being stained

Some staining action

Some jam and other preserves (only a portion of what I did this weekend and week)

Our new front entrance – look no shoes or junk on the floor! Best Zellers purchase EVER!

The new duvet – flannel, oh it’s going to be so warm and snuggly (I’ll do a post about it, since I have a few other photos)

Hello again, and sorry . . . again.

Again I’ve been AWOL . . . sorry, but I think you all might have to get used it. I’m a busy girl, I like to be doing things, I’m a Guide Leader and I work two jobs. There’s not a whole lot of time left for things like Blogging! For example, this is my current week starting with Monday.

Monday – work 7-530, go to gym (not an overly exciting day, I’ll admit)

Tuesday – First Aid training followed by Guides (hosting two units to bring us up to 45 girls!)

Wednesday – work and go to the PAUL BRANDT CONCERT!!!! (more on that later)

Thursday – work, go rock climbing with the Halifax Adventures group

Friday – take the car in for check up, pick up Church key for Guides (it was stuck in the door), get a massage, go to the gym and work at Stokes, go to some Persian party with my friend

Saturday – take little miss Mayfly out 🙂

Sunday – French Brunch and hopefully acquire some groceries again.

Yea, so I hope you can see why I’m not around much. I’m pretty busy these days . . . some of it is work, some of it is play, but it’s all the time 🙂

I’m also in the middle of planning the menu for our next Guide camp which just happens to be next weekend. This also means I’m digging through all of the supplies for things we might need while still getting things organized for the meeting next week. Plus I need to find 1-2 hours straight this weekend to sit down and figure that all out.

I’m not too sure when I’m going to get a chance to finish February’s book, but I’m still working on it! I’m not giving up yet . . . there will be a book a month and I will be able to run 10 km in one go by the end of 2012. Somehow.

I’ll try to be around a little more often, though I’m not making any promises!
