and a quick update . Thank you for your kind words and thoughts and prayers for Marie . She's still in the hospital in a regular room now and scheduled to go home sometime this week. She's definitely feeling better, but still frail . Her family doctor is on duty at the hospital this week and has taken over her file. We're trying to arrange homecare for her but the wheels of the bureaucracy move ever so slowly. I've been spending most of my days either at the hospital or trying to arrange things at home. I'm not sure this is the best thing for Marie, but it's what she wants . She feels that she can cope just a little longer, and is hoping to be able to spend the summer at home.
I'm trying to keep the smile , but some days it's difficult . Today I'm counting my blessings and focusing on the positive . We've had the most gorgeous weather in the last two weeks , more like summer than spring.
We had to buy a new BBQ as our old one just gave up the ghost . I love the new one , it has a teflon grill on the sideburner that is super for bacon and eggs , even pancakes . Witness the sunnyside-up eggs he whipped up yesterday morning - the bacon was done earlier . It feels like we're camping again . Gotta love a man who gets up and makes breakdast on a Sunday morning .
Mike and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago . We had a super dinner with the family at Casey and Chantal's house , followed by watching the hockey playoffs . Go Habs Go !
Needless to say there's not much knitting going on around here , but I couldn't resist knitting up this little guy . My first ever knitted toy ! The pattern is by Barbara Prime , her etsy store is called Fuzzy Mitten . She sells the most adorable patterns for knitted toys , the bonus for me is that she's Montreal designer . It's great to support some local talent. The enabler for this was Monika and her March bunnies . It might be my first knitted toy , but surely won't be the last . I've purchased Barbara's book , so many cute patterns .... where to start ?
