My head was feeling better (but not my stomach) by early evening on Friday so I picked Nick up and after getting some provisions for the weekend I took him to DQ. Now doesn't this picture make for a great DQ commercial??? We spent the evening lazing around... he even dared to challenge me to Star Wars Trivial Pursuit. He should of known the attempt was futile. I soundly kicked his butt.
Today was spent fishing. While I taught at TKD the boys went to a river nearby... where I heard Nick fell in four times (wish I had been there with the camera!) and caught four fish. After TKD they picked me up and we went off to fish in the Madawaska River in Arnprior. I didn't catch anything... but then I tend to get bored quickly when the fish aren't biting... I read my book, took a nap under a willow tree, and cast my line in every once in awhile. Todd is patient and persistent and he caught a 6 pound Northern Pike. (See Ann, Dan and other Brighton area dis-believers... Todd does exist! Then again I could be teasing you with pictures of some random guy fishing today ;-) )
I've been working on Kathy's Ornament RR... a snowman, he's coming along nicely. Now I do like doing RR's and such, but at the moment I just can't wait to get them all done (the ones I have at the moment). I'd really like to get back to stitching my own stuff.
While on the topic of stitching, when I was waiting for Nick I was finally able to get a picture of a quilt my Mum put together for my niece Emma two years ago. The squares are from the Vermillion International Bears (when they were freebies on the net), which I did as a RR many years ago.
Now for our iris of the day. A new variety I put in this year called Spartan its a beautiful red/burgundy bloom! I've been asked to take a picture of my iris bed... I'm still waiting for a couple of more varieties to bloom first!
