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.
