Happy Anniversary to us and another busy day at The Acreage...

On April 28th, 2009 we closed on The Acreage......what a year it has been, and how time flies by when you are having fun!!!  Funny thing is I don't feel like writing about the past year at this moment?  Maybe leave that for another day!!

Meanwhile it was a cool day on Tuesday, with a windchill of minus 3oC in the morning.  However the sun shone all day and if you could get out of the wind, it was lovely.

Molly watching squirrel tv again!!  Look at her paw.

The guys arrived to do the work, and ended up putting in the four windows on Tuesday.  What a difference having natural light again in the old basement.  They have been blocked up for many years.  The ones in the new basement are also really nice, and we took the iron bars off the outside as well, as honestly there were only four screws holding them on, and if someone wants to break in I'm sure there are easier ways of breaking in.

I wrapped up well in the afternoon and cut Kamikaze Hill for the first time this year.  It really makes a difference when the grass isn't knee high!!  I also made a start on my quilt block for the block of the month club, this month it is a "T Quilt Block."

I have company visiting today, so it's going to be another busy day, I hope to get caught up with your blogs later on in the week.

Happy Anniversary! Beautiful sky and a funny dog . . .

Now if we're going to be friends, I don't want to be "caught up with." Just come by when you can. It's good to see you, but it's not supposed to be a chore. You stay busy enough as it is.

The new windows sound wonderful! Must be like getting out of the dungeon.
