All Work And No Play

We are always short staffed at work so I have picked up a few over time hours. I do not like over time but I am trying to help out. I am to old for all those hours.
I also have had lots of appointments lately Just yearly things. 
I did meet up with my sweet friend this week and we got a walk in.
This is Meredith Bay all frozen over.

The Adirondack chairs waiting for summer. Me too! I am ready we have had several snow storms in the past few weeks.

There is still lots of open water but enough ice for the ice fishermen. It was so cold Friday and Sat it must of made more ice for them. I do not like that below zero bitter cold. But our wood stove did a great job and once I was home I was happy to stay there.

Some of the bob houses are so funny and sweet this one has curtains and a porch. Did someone steal his wife's she shed or is she fishing? 

In my quest to eat healthier I decided to grow my own sprouts again. really one week and I have lots and lots of sprouts. Just a table spoon of seeds in a canning jar with cheese cloth over the lid.
some water and sunlight and voila!

Today some very long time friends were in the area and called to see if we were home. I made us brunch and we chatted and caught up for hours. It was really wonderful I wish more of that would happen in our lives. To me that is so joyful to connect with old friends. 
I am still hooking on my stair risers I have signed up for a couple of rug retreats and one camp. Something to look forward to.
I also have been asked to give a little mini class to beginners like a couple of hours mostly a demo this summer. I have agreed to do it to spread the word of rug hooking.
Have a wonderful week,we are in for a storm on Tuesday 
we shall see what it brings the weather man has not been right much lately.

Love that quote from Julia Child. That ice fishing looks too cold for me!

Not sure I ever read what type of work you do. Whatever it is when you're retirement age you definitely don't want to work overtime.

I adore sprouts but cannot believe how expensive they are now in my grocery store... and they rot so fast so less than half are consumed. I eat big salads 3 times per week and would use them on top. But as I said, the entire container isn't used by then so when Monday rolls around the rest are rotten. So tell me which seeds you use

That "she shed' comment was funny!!!

I'm laughing because I thought Meredith was your friend who was frozen! Our wood stove keeps us toasty as well but I'm ready to be done with that. Stay warm and don't work too hard. I struggle with long hours when I'm on call. I'm ready to be done with that too! Have a good week Cathy!

I should appreciate a "She-Shed" if I were out and about on the ice. Ice Fishing is something unheard of in our neck of the woods. I thought it was something only Eskimos do! :~) I will research "bob houses." If I were closer, I would sign up now for your class. :~)

No ice in our bay yet, so no ice fishermen either. Did see some bald eagles the other day. Have fu with your teaching. I know you will be great! Janice

Yippee that you are signed up for a camp and retreats. Always inspiring to spend time with like minded people...and do a little hooking. I'm sure your class will be a great success.
Those bob houses so close to open water looks a little scary to me!!!
