Tyrrell Museum

today my son has his first school field trip...  He is a little excited about going on to a school bus for the first time as well.  His trip is to Drumheller - Tyrell Museum.  For those that do not know it is a Dinosaur museum.  It is a great place to teach kids about all the dinosaurs that were around.  Here is the website  In the summer you can go on hikes and dig for fossils.  But for today they are just doing the tour and then they are going to Reptile World - I have never been there so I am not sure what that all entails so that will be something new for him to see.

Roy had asked my Sister to take him on the field trip due to the fact that I could not take the day off seeing how I used my one vacation day this month.  So she is camera happy just like me so when I get pictures of the day I will post them.  I really can't wait to hear all about his day.

What a WEEK!!

Work is in full swing - year end is fast approaching and the Sales Team is busy planning for our next fiscal and my job is crazy busy....A full week and a 1/2 day on Saturday, I feel a little better going into the office on Monday.  My accounts are finally starting to come down for where they were 2 weeks ago so by the end of this month my accounts should be in great standings - fingers crossed.

On Saturday, we went to a Surprise 40th for a friend,  it was fun with tones of food and great conversations.

Today.... Well we turned our clocks ahead so we in Canada (minus Saskatchewan) lost 1 hour for our spring ahead.  So up and eager to get to work on something in this house... I tackled Roy's room.  Well we (hubby and I) moved his bed and dresser and such in hopes of him sleeping in his room tonight and not on the couch...  Now, we just need to organize his toys - that is a whole other story...So for the remainder of the day it is TOYS and TOYS and TOYS - This year am I going to request that my family don't buy toys for him, as he has way to much, if they want to buy toys, they can buy them and give them to charity as there are children out there that don't get toys and would probably love them.

On Wednesday, it is my Girls Gang Club get together and I am so excited about this, just to see what our next task is to our year long Quilt - A - Long.

On Friday, we are taking my Dad out for supper for his 60th Birthday.   I am looking forward to this as I get to see my Sister and her Hubby...

Well have a great week and I will check in with you later.

Well, I have gone back to work and with work and general life, I have been BUSY!!!  The laundry has piled up and I have been trying to do a load a day and it still does not seem to be getting the laundry done.

Work like sure is keeping me busy and then some but I am really enjoying being back after a long time gone...

Blog world, wow in a week my blogs that I follow sure have been busy it took me 2 hours to catch up on everything....  Sorry if I did not send a note, but I did read and like the pictures of 300+ that were waiting from me in Google Reader...

Well it is back to laundry tonight while watching CSI: Las Vegas!!  Grey's is not on tonight....:(

SAL - GJ Block G

I have completed the block G minus the stitching as I am still wondering what to do....  I am not sure if I should do it all in blue as that seems to be the larger amount of colour in my fabric or the thread that it is suppose to be according to the book - decision decisions......

next, I have to get caught up on my Block swaps as I a little behind....
