|Good thing we reserved the entire left half and the upper section of the pub because our group filled it up!|
|My best friends, Ada and Hedi, Hedi’s awesome hubby Dave, my Dad and Aunt Judy, my God-Mother. It was so good to see everyone – I must say, I do miss living so far away from them!|
|My Dad’s work crew buddies and their wives came too! They’re all just LOVELY people and think the world of dad.|
|So many wonderful friends and family – it meant so much to my dad to see them all there.|
Quite often my Dad will fall asleep on his lazy boy chair with a blanket (and one of his cute dogs on his lap) so I decided to crochet a blanket for him as part of his birthday gift. It has been so many years since I crocheted I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed it!
The week home went by so fast, as it always does, but it was such a great trip. I’m so happy that my Dad was totally surprised and had NO IDEA about his party or that I was coming. What fun! It’s too bad my sweetie couldn’t come with me, as he and my dad have a great bond together, but he stayed home to keep the wood stove burning and to take care of our fur-kids.
I flew back to Halifax on Wednesday and got home after midnight (it’s a about a 2 1/2 hour drive from the airport to my house). Due to the four hour time difference, I was moving pretty slow yesterday! I wanted to make another video tutorial for you, but due to my lack of energy, I just spent the day yesterday unpacking and making a batch of soup. Today, however, I will be filming and putting in a full workday. It’s so nice to be able to work from home (with my kitty snuggled in my arms as I type this). Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter too, as I’ll be sending out some information today about new products coming your way (as well as some stamping inspiration too!).
