    Notice this a few days ago but I don't sign in everyday so couldn't leave a message.
    Here's what the small and big guys did all week-end.

    Wow that prime rib looks good Nora. I love my rotisserie on the BBQ.

    Looks like a great weekend Nora!
    We spent the weekend in Brockville visiting Paul's parents and helping to get their gardens in. This week...our gardens go in. Six dozen geraniums await (plus the alyssum and ageratum to boot)...give me strength!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

    Nora, that is how we always cook our Prime Rib Roasts - they always turn out excellent! The only thing missing from your dinner was... me icon_wink.gif lol

    Lambykins - I have gardening envy this year. We are just trying to maintain the gardens here for the new folks but are not planting annuals. The new place doesn't even have any beds dug out yet so most of this summer will be prepping them for fall planting. Enjoy your garden!

    Well, I have been up to my ears in packing. I am truly astonished at how many glasses I have - mainly specialty glasses. I donated about 3 dozen to make a dent. Did I need to hang on to champagne glasses tastefully printed with the word 'Millenium'? I thought not icon_lol.gif

    Today was pretty exciting for me. Spent much of it packing but then we trekked to Sears in Burlington and bought some new appliances. Every house I have ever lived in has had appliances included and they were never new. My first new appliance was a fridge 3 years ago but the purchasers of this place wanted it.

    Don - in a moment he may now consider folly suggested "buy what you like, within reason". I now have (or will) a 22 cf upright frost free freezer to replace the 12 cf one that I purchased in 1981. It has been a work horse but man I have always hated having to defrost it! We got a 22 cf Stainless steel fridge with french doors and a bottom freezer. Water and ice dispenser in the door and a five burner gas range with a warming drawer and racks I do not have to manually clean. Although, the within reason limitation eliminated Wolf or Sub Zero I am tickled pink and can hardly wait to move and use them! icon_smile.gif

    CONGRATS on your new purchases K9. Sounds like you have some pretty special appliances to enjoy at your new home. Also, sounds like you have been VERY busy preparing for the move. WHAT? the "Millenium" glasses aren't "de rigeur"?!?!?!?!?! Gosh, I could have added a few (or more) to your donation. I really MUST get at the stuff hanging about in my cupboards.

    The front gardens are mostly done. Managed to hammer in the geraniums, 3 flats of alyssum, 2 flats of ageratum and one flat of Victoria Blue salvia. I still need to get some dahlias and coleus in...but that will need to wait until we return from the cottage. Next will be the planters...window, patio and herb.

    Heading up to the cottage tonight until Sunday evening and I am really hoping that it warms up a wee bit. I have gardening to do there and it is rather difficult wearing my winter woolies and ski mitts icon_wink.gif Our thermostat up there is reading 8 degrees at the moment and the forecast is for 1 degree overnight with a frost warning! What the heck!!!! It IS May 24th right??????? icon_eek.gif

    Ah well, if it is too cold to head outside, I always have window quilts to tackle. We have trapezoid windows which let in an awful amount of sun and we have made a pattern for fabric with a wood frame. So, if all else fails I will turn to my crafty side (will have to dig really deep to find it first).

    Have a good weekend all!

    Those sound really interesting. I don't think I've heard of them before. Do you have pictures?

    Have a great weekend and I hope it warms up for you!

    And here I was happily thinking I could start putting the vegetable garden in this weekend....brrrrr. I do here though that it should be 17C tomorrow and 19 on Sunday so at least we are on the upswing. Went out to the ball park tonight in a wide open field and nearly froze my tush off. I am definitely a warm weather gurl.

    The landlord had this made for me for looking after his cat for 3 weeks a few weeks back.

    Oh my goodness Nora...how cute is that! It's always nice when someone appreciates what you do for them.
    That reminds me, I put out the hummingbird feeder at the cottage yesterday, and within ten minutes we had "customers". A little rock like yours might be quite suitable in the garden just below. icon_smile.gif

    Another busy weekend of baseball. But did find time to get my vegetable garden in. 5 kinds of Tomatoes, Red, yellow and jalapeno peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, onions, garlic. Herbs will be planted tomorrow (ran out of sunlight). Can just imagine all the great meals coming out of my garden later this summer.

    Well, we did manage a "type" of window quilt, but nothing too sophisticated. We decided to do a board with quitled fabric attached, which we slip over nails on the upper trim of the windows. We made the quilts for the larger trapezoids on the sides, and next week we will attempt the upper level ones (I always get nervous when Paul is that high up on the extension ladder icon_eek.gif) I'm sorry but I don't know how to post photos K9 icon_sad.gif or I would definitely do so.

    Saturday was a sunny but cool day by the lake and nary a bug to be found (perhaps the frost held them at bay), so I managed to get some weeding done and planted a few perennials. Now to see which ones the deer find the most appealing.

    On Sunday the bug experience was a whole different kettle of fish!!! Blackflies were out and VERY hungry. So I "suited up". Wellington boots, pants tucked in to the boots, long sleeved t-shirt, baseball cap and over all this....the net bug jacket with attached enclosed zippered hood. I looked like a Sasquatch in training. But I was able to get lots of yard work done without being carried away by the blackflies.
    All in all a very productive weekend. icon_biggrin.gif
