windstorm Garbage

Windstorm killed my debit machine

Wow, I would never have believed it but the windstorm this past week wreaked havoc on my debit/credit machine.  Yes it was a brutal day.  We had wind and snow and driving was like a slalom course because it was also garbage and recycle day.  The wind blew the garbage and recycle all over the roads.

Nanaimo Yarn

Trunk Show – The Unveiling of Nanaimo

On Saturday, March 31, Sugar Bush Yarns came to Georgetown Yarn to unveil their new Spring yarn – Nanaimo.  This is a very luxurious lace weight yarn made of alpaca and mulberry silk.  So soft and sleek.  I am working on a tunic top now with it.  It comes in 15 colours that are all very beautiful.

Georgetown Yarn Renovations

Living with Renovations . . . but not mine!

So wow, renovations, right?!  We have all been through them in one form or another.  I remember, before my husband and I got married, we decided to strip, sand and stain our hardwood floors.  Well, we still got married, so I guess that turned out well.

Furnace

Yesterday my furnace died! (Sort of)

The first thing I notice is that it is colder than normal even for first thing in the morning.  Then I notice it is quiet.  No furnace sounds.  Uh-oh!  I head over to the thermostat – no signs of life there.  Okay not good
