spring chores

Sometime in March - with an overload of snow on the flat roofs ...... the association came around and cleared the worst snow covered roofs. i had a good 6 foot mountain of snow on my back patio........ complete with loose gravel from the roof.

The snow has slowly melted leaving me with gravel between the patio stones.. in the grooves of the patio stones and underneath the patio stones. Only one thing to do...... sweep the worst off the top and then lift and stack each patio stone till the original cement base was left ...... and sweep that. (can i say back breaking work??)




i started it yesterday morning - early, VERY very early. i managed to get half done....... and then Sir and i were off with eldest daughter to town to purchase yards and yards AND yards of material for her wedding dress.



i was absolutely dreading this shopping trip...... finding just the right materials.... yes materials.. some white some chocolate brown.. crinoline material... lining material..zippers and buttons .. but the seamstress had made a list and there was a sales person just standing around waiting for us ........... list handed over.. bolts and bolts of material just kept appearing .. white, cream, ivory, chocolate brown, bolts and bolts of the stuff... but it didn't take that long to make all the selections....... gather it all up and head out on the next challenge...........

Finding just the right lingerie to wear underneath this wedding dress........

Sir and i had joked about taking her to our favourite BDSM shop Il Bolero ......... they also sell lingerie.. bustiers and corsets, and sexy lil lacy things... Eldest daughter's seamstress had recommended the BEST lingerie shop in town...... (wait for it........ see it coming??)
We walked a few city blocks checking addresses.. getting closer and closer to Il Bolero when finally there it was #6848 and we were standing in front of Il Bolero!!! i handed eldest daughter over to Johnny the owner and sat down and let her model the bustiers .... relaxing, entertaining and not the least bit stressful!!

Finally home we came with lingerie and material bags in tow....... i had no energy left to work on the patio..... but that's ok... i am working on it today.............

And if there ever was a doubt that spring has finally arrived in here in the Great White North.......... that doubt was put to rest early this morning when the honking of the Canadian Geese was heard in the distance........ and then.. there they were flying directly over head......... announcing loudly the arrival of spring..........






Sir.......it would seem.......... has an entirely different way of judging that spring has arrived..... check it out...

Haven't seen flock one yet - and snow is in the forecast.

You've a lot on your plate so no snarky, cheeky remarks this time. Wait for tomorrow.
