Naughty Girl
Ok, I didn't post at all while in Nova Scotia. To be honest, I was so very busy during the day, lining up and interviewing builders, picking up fixtures, choosing floor night all I wanted to do was watch the Stanley Cup playoffs. I thought I was going to have to miss game 3 of the Red Wings- Avs game because it was in Denver and, being in Nova Scotia, I was yet another time zone away. I watched the Pens beat up on the Rangers (yea!! too bad the Pens lost last night) and, around 10pm I got a phone call from United that my flight the next morning (April 30) was canceled due to severe weather. Ok- meant I could stay up and watch the game. I went on-line to see where the "severe weather" was....nada. The only warnings I could find ANYWHERE on the North American continent were the flood warnings for Quebec, Ontario and parts of New Brunswick. I think the "severe weather" was a code for "not enough seats sold to make it worth flying." No problem. One more day in Nova Scotia was dandy with me.

But, I'm back in Michigan for now. The weather is lovely- high 60's to low 70's and my tulips are blooming like crazy! I need to take pictures. I planted a lot of new ones last year and it's fun seeing them come up since I forgot what colours I planted.

While I was in Nova Scotia I made a trip to Lunenburg to visit the crew of the Picton Castle and take them the quilt "Vagrant Gypsy Life." Captain Dan and his crew were so wonderful and thanked me. What I wouldn't give to be healthy enough to sail with them. I talked to Joey about signing on for a trip in a year or so but he has no interest. Sigh.

Anyway, I will post some pictures later since they are all on the laptop.

Back to work....

    Teri, Thanks for the note, glad to hear you are enjoying the blog. I loved the quilt, and actually got goosebumps as Captain read the poem off of it. I just didn't say anything then because we were all working. Thanks again though. The piece was a fantastic honor to the ship and to Laura.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
