Busy Weekend!

We have had rain, rain and more rain.  For a whole week, nothing but rain.  The homes on Centre Island are being washed into the lake.  The beach at Ashbridges Bay is swamped.  Even as far out at Bowmanville the waters threaten the houses and sandbags need to be used.  It's the same in Quebec. 
But now the rain seems to have stopped.  At least where I live.  It is very cold though.  We had frost last night and will likely have more of it tonight.  But I have kept warm, dry and busy this past weekend. But now I am exhausted. 

On Saturday I went to the Rouge Valley Quilt Show.  I used to be a member, but when they changed venues, it became too difficult to get in and out of the church.  It was not wheelchair accessible.  There were no elevators and I could no longer walk up and down the stairs.  Unfortunately I had to quit, but when I heard they were having their quilt show I decided to go to the community centre to see my old quilting buddies and the gorgeous quilts that were on show.  I wanted to take lots of photos, but it was too difficult to get a good picture from my wheelchair with all the visitors that were there.  I did take a photo of Sandy Sinoco's hand appliqued quilt.  I love her work.  It is all hand done. It's gorgeous, wouldn't you agree?

Then on Sunday my daughter wanted to take William to Vandermeer`s.  It`s a garden centre.  I love that place and I went with her.  William only went to look at the fish and turtles.  He just loves those fish! 
It was a fun day.  William enjoyed himself and I bought a few perennials.

I love visiting garden centers. The fish look fun at yours.

Hi Hetty. I went to the show first thing Saturday morning. I guess I missed you. I'm glad you got to get out and visit with old friends.

Oh, that William is such a little doll! Glad you were able to get out and enjoy! Although not in danger of flooding, we need a good wringing out here on Cape Breton. One more day of rain in the forecast, but no sun until Saturday. Stay safe, warm, and dry! XO
