I'm Baaaaaackk!!!

The weary travellers have returned! We came home last Monday night after flying from Vancouver to St. John's on the same plane. We stopped over in Calgary and Halifax along the way to stretch our legs, pee break and to get more passengers. It was a long travel day and it was good to just get home and sleep in your own familiar bed again. Unfortunately I had to get up early in the morning to start work. Uggghhh!! I was a victim to say the least! I had been suffering jet lag all week and dead dead tired after working all day. I didn't have the energy to get out of my own way! When I got home from work yesterday, I made a light supper and I was in bed by 7:30 that night. I woke up this morning 9:30am!! Yep... 14 hours of sleep!!!!!!!! It felt GREAT!!!!!!!!! I plan to have another nice sleep in tomorrow morning, but I won't be off to bed so early tonight :)

We had a great trip to Vancouver, and we didn't stop!!! We feel we now need a vacation after our vacation just to rest and relax! I suppose that is a good complaint as it shows we had a fabulous an action packed holiday! I am still compiling all the photos together as we had both my camera and his. Trevor also took a pile of video too. I hope to add some photos here of our trip in the coming days. I am only now getting a bit of energy back to do things.

After my 14 hour sleep, I got up, made breakfast then off to the house again to start more renos. Actually the major renos are now done and as you can see from my last post, my furniture is all moved in. I still have many boxes to unpack, but today, my big job was to sand down the plaster in the two master bedroom closets and get them ready to paint. I hope to start the painting tomorrow morning. If all goes well and the house gods are in my favour, I would love to see myself completely moved into my home by next weekend. I may not have Internet hook up right away, but I will shortly I hope.

I'm not sure if I will get my sewing room reno'ed before I move, and I might not get it started for another month or so, but I will just have to deal with what I have right now and fix up the room at a later date. I would like to get it done before the end of the year if I can at all. I am just anxious to get all my sewing stuff in the one room and get back to sewing and playing again. I have been suffering serious withdrawls since I couldn't really do much sewing the last month or so as all my time has been working on the house. I hope that changes really soon, cause I have sooooooooo many projects I want to be working on.

I also decided to teach again this Fall season. Only this time I am only going to do one night a week instead of my regular night and Saturday morning. I have other areas I want to pursue and I need that time to work on them. So for now I will be teaching either Monday or Tuesday nights starting in September. I have decided to teach a Sampler Quilt. It will give my present students and new students a chance to learn many quilting techniques in the one quilt. I also hope by the Fall to have my own sewing studio ready to offer private classes for smaller projects. If not by the Fall, hopefully by January.

Well I just wanted to drop a post here tonight, to let those of you that do follow my post regularly that I haven't completely disappeared :) When my sewing room is up and running I will be back to posting more regular sewing/quilting notes, and also when my kitchen is up in production mode, I want to start adding more of my favourite recipes and any new experiments I try.
