Last Day

Yesterday was my last day in Montreal.  As you read this, I am (hopefully) winging my way back to Texas.  And Boo and Miss Kitty.  And Mom & Dad.  Do you think they all missed me?

On my last day, I decided to clean Dear Hubby’s apartment top to bottom.  Which meant I swept, mopped and dusted.  Straightened the cupboards in the kitchen.  Cleaned the bathroom.  I virtually did Spring Cleaning on the entire place. 

Twelve and a half minutes later I took a nap from pure exhaustion.

Then I got out the $7 iron that we bought at WalMart in Vermont and ironed all my tiny little hexagon blocks.  Including the one that I sewed on the plane on the way here.  I have hopes of doing another one today.  At this rate, the Insane quilt will be finished by 2063.  I hope you’ll still be around to enjoy the finished product.  By the way, I love how easily hand pieced things press.  Thus, the backside of one block so you could see.  I love Inklingo.  And I love hexagons.

Where did all the time go?  I blame the Timbits.  I think I spent too much time in a sugar stupor.  And the French.  Too much time trying to figure out the microwave.  And my laptop.  Because I think that is really the culprit for where all the time goes.  Story of my life.

I am nostalgic today.  And torn between two cities.  Two countries for that matter.  I miss Dear Hubby already and since I’m writing this before I left, that’s really missing him!

Here’s his favorite place when he gets home from work.  I am glad that I can now picture him sitting here with the laptop, reading about the news of the day.  Just before he calls me on Skype.  I look forward to my next visit to Montreal.  Maybe I’ll get used to the French?  One can always hope.

I still have things to write about the trip.  I must tell you about the B&B we went to in Vermont! 

It was fabulous and I really want to share all those pics with you.  And I never showed you the desserts we had on my birthday either.  I took pics and by golly, you have to see them. 

OK, there are just two pics so I think I’ll share them here and get that one out of the way…..

Dear Hubby’s dessert.  Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate! Very rich.

My dessert.  The little brownie bites had a creamy, decadent center and were crunchy on the outside.  With drizzled fudge and raspberry sauce.  Yum.  I gobbled them up.

It’s been fun sharing the adventure with all of you.  Many more adventures to come.  But maybe I need to get back to quilting?  Either that or I have to change the name of the blog, eh?

By the way, I also did a few last loads of laundry.  Just because I wanted to play with the cute little washer once more.

And besides that.  There’s still no TV.

    I’ve enjoyed reading all about your wonderful trip and adventures in a foreign land 🙂 Hope you have a safe and uneventful trip back home. I know it was hard to leave DH, but now you can visualize his surroundings and relate a little more in your Skype conversations. Now you can start planning your return journey!

    I know it had to be hard to say goodbye to Mark 😦 but I know you will have your hands full when you get home and have lots to do including retreat! 🙂 I’m just sorry Texas doesn’t have Timbits…but maybe that’s actually a good thing? See you soon!

    Sounds like you had a nice trip. Your posts made me laugh. I had three years of French in school (too many years ago to admit!) and I don’t think I could have read any of those signs either! BTW…your hexagons are soooo cute!!

  4. Bertha Mallard says:

    So glad you had a great trip. I’ll be happy to see you for our Dear Jane Day later this month.

    Glad you now know where DH is residing temporarily and especially that you had a great time in Canada. It’s not the same as having him here but it helps! It was fun to enjoy the adventure with you so thanks for sharing. Welcome back to Texas!

  6. Hope you are safely winging your way home and have had clear weather with no turbulence so you could stitch away on those cute little hexagons!

    Hopefully by now you’re home with two or three more hexagons done! 😉
    Blame it on the Timbits! So far I’ve resisted running across the street to get some but my resistance is getting lower and lower. If I succumb, it’s all your fault — I hadn’t thought about them for months until you mentioned them! 😉

      I’ll take all the blame, Cathi. Those Timbits are to die for. Too bad I couldn’t grab more at the airport to bring home. I’m craving them again already. No Timbits in Texas. Phooey! And I DID get hexagon diamonds stitched on the plane. FOUR more of them to be exact. Yeah! Boo and Miss Kitty were very happy to see me. And can’t stop following me all over the house.
