My weekend

What a fabulous weekend.  I've been housesitting, taking care of 2 burmese cats, 2 cattle and 3 chooks in the most scenic, peaceful spot and a beautiful big spacious home.  Just me, the animals and my sewing machine.

The little but noisy Ladycat of the house - when she was quiet I wondered if she was okay...haha

A very old and loving but tired Mancat of the house

Beautiful green green grass and no weeds.. but I was SO glad I didn't have to mow the huge lawns

The view from the window.. the windmills in the Manawatu
I made a few more blocks for my 1930's quilt, caught up with my son and my friends.  A fabulous relaxing and fun weekend.  My lovely lovely friend Carol came and sewed with me for an evening . Oh I do miss my friends - and it's good to bounce ideas with Carol. 

I also caught up with my good friend Emma on the way home.   Another quilter who's very creative!

It was SOOO Hot!! up there though, I was looking forward to getting home.  but the neighbours tell me it's been 31 degrees down here today...

Some like it hot, some like it cold but I don't like either..  I'd like it in the middle... warm but comfortable!! 
We need rain badly for the gardens and the farms.

What a lovely area! the windmills intrigue me - we don't have anything like that around here.

It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! :-) Thanks for sharing -

Hi !Kay, I could use some heat but we are still weeks away from feeling any warmth here in Canada. Send some. Loved the photos, they do make the place seem peaceful and tranquil.

Hi Karen,

Glad that you had a lovely weekend away, catching up with family and friends.
I know what you are saying about the heat, we have it here too.
Aren't Burmese cats cute, we have friends that have one. They did have two, but sadly the brother was run over by a car. :(

Happy Thursday
