Hello, it's me.....


A little birdie told me that if I don't stop by to say hello every once in a while I will lose touch with bloggers and soon fade away into the sunset.
And I always sit up and take notice when a bird starts speaking to me!

I really have been busy. I promise I'm not sitting around eating bon bons and watching TV. We've been doing Spring touch up on our home. Oh, and I've recently converted my spare basement room into a sewing room now too. I'll have to show you photos of that soon.

Tim and I also just returned from a trip down to Sault Ste. Marie for shopping and appointments. It was a bright and sunny day with 20C(68F) weather. We had nearly four days of beautiful weather, but now as I sit and look out the window I see snow flakes zooming past (it's very windy today). I heard at physio today that the forecast is calling for freezing rain.
 Really? I refuse to believe this. I think I will close the curtains and pretend it's not happening.
 My crocuses have bloomed now so I'm sure we've turned the corner even if it is going to be cold for this coming week. Fingers crossed!
I've had a request for more of my mittens from the Yukon. It does seem strange sewing wool mitts at this time of year. I realize though that summer is the busiest time of year for Yukon businesses, so I'm happy to oblige!
Please pray for the earthquake victims in both Ecuador and Japan. My goodness, if watching the news  these days doesn't prompt a person to want to pray I don't know what will.
Blessing to you all-Kim


  1. you have the best photos of your home, its so beautiful and cosy,, I see your preserves on the shelves and it makes me feel at home right away,,
    the photo of the highway,,,, I know where that is , lol,,,
    take care my friend,,

  2. Good morning! It was good to catch up a bit with you....anxious to see your new sewing room! We've got the air conditioning running over here. It's been in the ninety's for the last several days...I'd like to pretend that's not happening yet, lol. Enjoy your week-end!

    1. Oh my, Debbie that is hot already!
      I will get on it and get some photos tomorrow of the redone room.

  3. I had to laugh at the line 'down to Sault Ste Marie'. I hope the snow as the melt-in-a-minute kind!

  4. It's good to see you, I'm glad that little birdie spoke to you. :) Your home looks so pretty and the jars on the shelves are very eye-catching. In fact, I'd like to grab one. :) You had some beautiful views on your trip.
    Take care and enjoy your new sewing room!

  5. Your sideboard and table are so pretty and organized so neatly. Your photo from your trip to Sault Ste. Marie is gorgeous. Such beautiful scenery there! Glad to hear all is well with you.

  6. What pretty pictures and I love how cozy your space is. Happy I stumbled over here somehow! :)

  7. Sweet little birdie Kimberly. Lovely scenery too,Take Care,Francine.

  8. The earthquake news is so awful..I have prayed for the victims and for their families. Devastating. I find it reprehensible that more attention has been paid to politics lately on the news channels. I hope spring will get a foothold in your world soon..I think we are in the clear, but still have to deal with these awful storms. I don't recall it ever raining so much as it has lately.

  9. I love your spring bouquet on the kitchen table Kimberly. I hope the freezing rain didn't materialize. I see mixed precipitation for one night early next week here. :( Can you believe how fast April is going by? The earthquakes are horrible and so many have lost their lives, loved ones and homes etc. It is very tragic. Take care and I hope you get some more spring weather soon. xx Pam

  10. Hello there! I figure that you've been as busy as a bee. Yes, it has cooled down here considerably, too. Can't wait to see your sewing room!

  11. Glad you listen - wink! I'll be looking forward to seeing your sewing room.
    So much is happening around the World in all places -- praying is indeed needed more than EVER.. HUgs
