No gardening today......

....in S. W. Ontario it is raining. I welcome the odd day like this during the busy days of getting the Spring gardening done. It gives me a chance to catch up on my housework, which has been neglected during the past week because we have had such beautiful weather and I would much rather be outside.

Vacuuming and dusting done, kitchen and bathroom cleaned from top to bottom.

Gave OH a hair cut. I have been cutting his hair for years, I am no professional, but at least he doesn't have to wear a hat for a week until it grows back in a bit. With the guides on the blades you really can't go wrong----well, I guess you could if you were not careful, anyway, he was happy with it so that's all that matters. My Dad used to say, "The only difference in a good hair cut and a bad one, is three days", so by Tuesday OH should look OK.

This afternoon I have been able to work on the quilt I have started to put together for my great grandson, so far, I love the way it is looking. On a previous post I showed the fabric, -- African wild animals. I have just bought a new camera, still trying to figure it out, will post photo's later.

Now I have to make my Friendship Amish bread, the dough has to sit on the counter for ten days, on the fourth day I had to feed it and now today I can make my loaves. It really is yummy, I have been putting some in the freezer, so that I can take out a loaf whenever I need something sweet.

Well gotta go........

After all that rain yesterday and today, it sounds like good weather is in store for Sunday.

We're in BC's "home of the Sun God" but I think he's on strike. I've never seen May weather like this. It's so depressing. But my house doesn't get proper care always either. It's clean just dusty -that's what happens when you back on farm land and live near a coal port. I'd rather just quilt. I'm definately going to try the cheaper haircuts after July 1. I can't afford the prices they charge now. Add to it and forget it. I'll switch to growing it out and wearing a bun.
