Second blog today

Just trying out blogging on Windows Live Writer to see if it is easier than using Blogger.

Looks like it will let me put pictures where I want them to be.  Sort of anyway.

Wow I live in a beautiful place.

Canada Day, Canada Post















Well I thought I would have nothing to blog about today, but I was wrong. It was pouring rain here this morning and I managed to get myself focused and did some sewing. I had started a Canada Day postcard for my sister last night but it turned into more of a fall theme so I started again with my other idea today. And this is how it turned out. I finished it about 4:30 - just in time to get down to the post office and mail it today. It won't go anywhere until Friday as tomorrow is Canada Day, Hey!

And imagine my surprise when I got there and found a little parcel for me. I had forgotten all about this win from Heather's http://alamodefabric.blogspot.com/ birthday month giveaway. My prize was created by Nova of a cuppa and a catch up... http://acardaday.wordpress.com/ and it is delightful. A little pincushion and matching coasters. The pincushion is too cute! Thanks Nova.

Now I'm sure Nova isn't reading this but the protocol seems to be that one thanks people who send one things on the blog. And someone may read it in time. You notice I'm not too worried about my sister seeing her postcard? Hee, hee. I won't tell her I have a blog until she gets it.

And I cannot figure out how to get the pictures where I want them - but I think people will be able to figure out which is which.

Other news in town today:

Game branch are looking for one or two abandoned cubs and a wounded bear. This is all conjecture and rumour of course and I haven't seen a bear around here yet this summer.
A woman is missing in her small boat on the lakes. Pray for her - it's cold and the lakes are treacherous.

New blog for a new blogger

I've finally taken the plunge and started a blog! I'm sure I won't be able to keep up with this the way many bloggers do, but I'll try and put a few interesting things on from time to time. Right now I need to sort out a few things for the set up and look of the blog.
