Good Evening everyone..
Hope you all had a great week..
Terry and I went to our old farm for a few days this week..
We headed out Monday morning and it was not raining for which we were thankful.. Terry had to take saws and tools and I had my sewing machine and such packed in the back of the truck..
We have had this old place for quite a long time and have only stayed overnight once..
We have always come back home each day as it is only a half hour drive..
We decided to stay for a few days and perhaps we would get more accomplished.. smile..
Kind of a small Spring working vacation.. grin..
We arrived and unloaded everything, had a cup of coffee and got to work..
Terry made the fire and started working on the pantry and I needed to make some new living room curtains..
I had a bunch of vintage pleated ones for years and just decided to make over and make do..
They required a lot of pressing but they are good enough..
I forgot to take a picture of the finished product but will show you later..
We had a lovely supper..
Pasta with a tomato sauce and chicken and Swiss cheese..
It rained on and off all day but after supper Terry wanted to go for a drive..
We must be old as we get excited to take a little drive.. grin..
We are up in the Kent Hills and this is rural countryside as you can see.. Kinda foggy, too..
Albert County is full of brooks and rivers..
We ended up in a small place where my Gram was born..
She used to walk all the way to school and this was her little church..
My dear Gram and Gramp along with my darling Dad are all resting here..
I have 4 sets of grandparents in this cemetery along with a lot of uncles, aunts and cousins...
I always love having a visit with Dad...sort of.. smile..
The views are spectacular..
It is called Hillside...
We had a wonderful sleep that first night..
The rain poured and the wind howled and I was a happy camper snuggled up in our Brunswick sheets and comforter..
I am a stormy weather girl, as you all know.. smile..
The next morning we had breakfast..
We forgot to bring bread so I made a couple of loaves..
And some cookies in case we had company..
Which we did...
Our farmer neighbour dropped by with a lovely gift of maple products... smile..
I had washed some little cloths that needed ironed..
One of the notebooks that I love..
You know me and my lists..
For Supper we had a small roast beef and decided to go for another drive..
It was a beautiful evening...
Lots of wood in those hills..
We drove across Caledonia Mountain and in less then half an hour we came out to this..
The beautiful Bay of Fundy..
The same bay where our cottage in St. Martins is..
Just the other end of it..
This is a little thing that is going in the pantry..
Terry finished one cupboard area and cut down an old dresser but still a lot to do..
I hope to incorporate the border somehow..
I know borders are not in style right now but this is so typical old pantry that I hope it will look ok..
We shall see...
Anyway, dear hearts that is all I have of pics..
I meant to take more in the house but hopefully we will be going again next week for a few days..
Now we are back home..
Thank you so much for your sweet visit and I love your lovely notes.. I read and appreciate each and every one..
I will try to answer any questions in your comments..
God bless you this long weekend...
Our grandsons are all at the Youth Convention that is being hosted in Moncton..
It just seems like yesterday when our kids were packing their clothes and away we would go and now it is our grandchildren..
Where has the time gone? smile..
Take care, my friends and God bless..
