We survived ! We had a great weekend house building . I'm probably feeling all the good vibes you get when starting something new , but I'm hoping that the next few months go as well as the past of days did. It sure is a great family bonding experience and a good way to get to know the future in-laws. I forgot my camera at Chantal's parents so I'll post a progress picture later . I'm hoping to put all the pics on CD and make a keepsake album for Casey and Chantal . I should say that I'm not helping out with actual building , but Lily (Chantal's mum) and I are responsible for the re- fueling of tout la gang . Boy can they eat !
In between meal preparation I had a chance to go over to my good friend Shirley's to celebrate her grand-daughters 2nd birthday . Emma is such a sweetie and a real smart cookie . She loved her gifts and it was a joy to see her and share part the day with them. We are a very small family , as my parents emigrated to Canada , all my relatives are in Austria . My husbands' parents are originally from New Brunswick , so he has a lot of family still there . Actually he has a lot of relatives spread throughout the US , as many of them went to the States for work years ago. We're the Quebec branch of the Canadian cousins . All this is by way of explanation , to say that Shirley is not just a good friend , but really more like a sister .
I did find a few minutes here and there to cast on and finish a child's sock for Dulaan . Quick and easy is what I'm about right now.
