A mish-mash of things for your reading pleasure (or not!)

Yesterday Jack and I had somewhat of a 'sanity day' and toodled off and explored.  Well, truthfully, the entire day wasn't total pleasure because Jack had to first go for his yearly physical bloodletting, but after that we had fun!  We hit our two absolute favourite thrift stores in quest of baby clothing cuteness for our expected grandbaby in June.  Wow - so much cute (and some of it came home with us to be washed thoroughly and packaged up to await the arrival of baby).  Then it was off to a place called 'Len's Mills' which is a grand place to explore.  My main quest there was to pick up some nice flannelette  to make some receiving blankets.  Mission was accomplished.  Then it was a pit stop to inhale the marvelous scents at the 'Grande Cheese Factory' outlet.  Mmmmm.  Of course some cheese managed to hop right on into our cart!!  Then it was off to have supper with our 'expectant' son and d-i-law.  All in all a perfect day!  Needless to say, however, no stitching was done.

  Thanks to Liz, I have been having a wonderful experience watching a live cam of a pair of eagles and their baby.  It's a live feed 24 hours a day and is so amazing to see.  Go HERE.

And, this came to me via Ginette...

And, finally, here's another quote...

"We must not give only what we have,
we must give what we are"
