A GREAT WEEKEND

I just arrived home from Nova Scotia. Been away since Friday morning. Spent 2 days judging a wonderful 2 day Paint horse and Open horse show. A great show with lots of entries. 2 long days of judging. A fine group of reiners too. A bit tired today, but resting up. Hope you all had a great weekend.

WEEKEND IN QUEBEC

Good morning! I arrived home in the wee hours this morning. I was in Quebec judging a Paint Horse show. A long drive for sure, took me 9 hours to get there and 2 hours to get through Toronto on Saturday. I loved Quebec. So quaint in the area where the show took place. A great turnout of some great horses. Had I known how to speak French, I would have received the Sirloin steak that I had wanted instead of a shish-caboc that I got when I dined out on Saturday night. A long drive home, can't believe I made it all the way home without having to pull over for a nap. I'll be taking it easy today............I am totally whipped!
Hope you all have a great week.

A NEW PORCH FOR THE SHOP

Good Sunday morning friends. It is so darned hot here in Southern Ontario this weekend. We cut hay last Thursday and we are going to bale it tonight. Great drying conditions with wind, and hot sun.
Cleaned out the chicken coop this morning and yesterday we cleaned all the Hay Loft out making way for the new fresh hay. 
I wanted to show you a picture of the shop with the new porch. We installed a screen door on Friday and I still need to paint it, but not until the hay is done.
Blessings

One of our Barn Cats is checking it out.

I love all the flowers I planted around it.

A GREAT HORSE SHOW

Just got home from judging a great 2 day, 4 judge APHA horse show in Saskatchewan. Lots of great horses. Very impressive. I enjoyed judging with my colleagues Robbin Jung, Mike Jung, and Carole Dunbar.
Glad to be home now. Missed my husband and critters.

Have a great week.

A SAD DAY

We lost one of our beloved barn cats. He must have got hit on the road. We found him dead in the morning. He was a truly special cat and my husband Stan's favourite. Rest in Peace sweet one.
Here is a picture taken of him last summer.

A QUILT IN THE PARLIAMENT BUILDING

Good day friends. I just wanted to show you all a picture of a quilt that my boss pieced and I quilted for a Gala Auction. The highest bid went to our Conservative MP Bev Shipley. It now hangs in his office in Ottawa. Wow!!! I am so glad that I voted for him.
Sharing the picture of the quilt with you all. Canada will be 150 years old this year.

SUGAR BUSH

A great week here in Ontario. My husband and I went for a wonderful breakfast this week at a local Sugar Bush. We had pancakes with fresh maple syrup, ham, sausage, baked beans and home fries. Lots of fresh brewed coffee too. I love going every spring. We wouldn't miss it.
Hope you are all having a great week!

HOME MADE MUFFINS

I was up early this morning baking these delicious muffins. They are made using the delicious canned home made applesauce my sister in law sent us at Christmas.


FRIDAY BLESSINGS

Friday blessings to you my friends. A little milder here in Southern Ontario. Some days feel like spring. A thin blanket of snow is covering the ground this morning after a few flurries overnight. I am sure Spring is just around the corner. I have been busy doing some sewing and rug hooking and planning out what I will plant in my vegetable garden for this year.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
Blessings,
~Janet
