however in all fairness I have been busy.
On Saturday we went up to Barrie where gas/petrol prices were below the dollar mark per litre. Been a long time since we have seen that:
Called in at the garden centre and had a wander around and among all the photos I took, I took this one:
Called in at the DIY store and bought wood to start finishing off the basement and then came home. We then headed out to the airport to pick up son and daughter-in-law; as they had been in Rome, Italy for the week on vacation. They had a super time and walked 73 kilometres while there.
Their flight along with a "hundred" other's all landed at the same time. They were held back twice when walking to customs as there were that many people trying to get through. We had a good time waiting as it's always interesting people watching and seeing what other people were up too.
On Sunday I was up bright and early as I was a woman on a mission:
Yes the deck was to seal. I got all the flat surfaces, the stairs and some of the railings done.
I can only do so much at once as it kills my hands. It looks so much better though. I hope to finish it off either Thursday or Friday depending on the weather this week.
Monday was also a busy day. One thing I did decide to do was a batch cook.
I got a baked bean lasagna made, shepherd's pie for both of us for one night and dh for Sunday night; I am out. Then two meals of scotch eggs. I had hoped to stretch the ground beef/mince to include pasta sauce but there just wasn't enough meat.
In between all of this I have been knitting. I have five gnomes completely finished. Two gnomes knit that just need to be sewn up and stuffed and am starting another one. I am hoping to get them ll done by the beginning of next week.
