Yesterday was a great day. My QFF's (Quilting Friends Forever) took me out for a gourmet lunch to celebrate my graduation. Unfortunately, Mary and Shirley could not be with us, but they were in our thoughts. They missed a really good time. There is a group of six of us, who regularly get together and have dinner and sewing nights at each others houses. This has been a tradition now for about five years. I am really lucky to have friends like these ladies. We always have a great time when we get together. Lunch was served at the Little Inn in Bayfield, Ontario. We enjoyed wine, soup and a delicious entre' and dessert. We were all quite full when we left, so we had to take a walk around town and visit some of the shops in this quaint little town. I think we all made some great purchases. There were some good sales on this time of year. I also received some nice cards, chocolates, and a couple of gift certificates to the Marsh Store Quilt shop that our friend Shirley owns. Shirley was working hard yesterday at her shop, that is why she couldn't be with us. Mary was enjoying a day at the spa with her daughter...........lucky Mary, we were all envious :) Thank you ladies. You really made my day!

This morning proved to be an interesting one. I went out to the barn to feed our horse and my dogs went crazy and ran under the stairs and started barking like mad. I ran over to see what the fuss was and I arrived right at the moment that a skunk was spraying them :(  I have had a long shower, but I am sitting here and I can still smell it. I have to go to my College today to write my final exam. I sure hope that what I can smell is just in my nose and not on me. I sure don't want to offend anyone in class. So today is the day. My final exam and the end of my College course. DH will be cleaning up the dogs. My QFF's are taking me out for lunch tomorrow to celebrate, my graduating :)
I am really looking forward to that.

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day!
I am hoping that spring will arrive soon. This has been a tough winter here in South Western Ontario. Another snow day from school today. We are in the midst of a wicked winter storm. I made sure I put extra bird seed out today for my birds, I could hear them all chattering in the trees. The winds are horrendous. The horse will stay in the barn today where it is nice and warm. Shorty and I will stay inside beside the woodstove keeping warm. If the groundhog's predictions are correct, spring will arrive early!
