This week we were away to the big city (Halifax) for a few days as hubby was presented with a long service award from the N.S. government.  It was a lovely service, and very cool to meet our premier Stephen McNeil.  We decided to stay on for a couple of days enjoying the bright lights and delights of the metro area. We dined, shopped, visited friends, and went skating one evening on the Emera Oval.  (Look out Rideau Canal, you're next on the list *-)

Despite the temperature being in the -20's (plus a windchill to make it worse!) it was very enjoyable.  A funny thing took place here while we were gone which I will tell you about as soon as I get myself caught up a bit (it's a cat story of course!)  The past two weeks have been wonderful but have put me way off schedule with work.  I am finishing up the Quilt Of Learning and hope to show that to you soon.


  1. Congratulations to your hubby!! Sounds like a nice little getaway for you two! Just wondering when your book is going to be available?

    1. Hi, Lori: Thanks for asking about the new book through AQS. At this point, we are still looking at a September 2014 release date - I have my fingers crossed there will be no delays. I can't wait to see it!

  2. Looks like a wonderful vacation. The Rideau Canal is still open, so come any time! (Though hopefully, it will be closing soon, and it will be spring!)

  3. Hugs to Jamie and congratulations ! I am so glad you had a fun get away. .. we had hoped to do Emera Oval this year but I have a tear in my knee so that cancelled the skating although I was willing to sit and watch ):

  4. So glad you are having a special time. The Oval is pretty wonderful. It's been so very cold lately and I am a wimp when it comes to cold.
