I got a call from my doctor the other day that my B12 was really low and I am to take 1000mcg each now.
I went to the drugstore and the pharmacist recommended Jamieson's. Has anyone had any experience with B12 deficiency .

They Say It's Your Birthday!!!

Yes, yesterday was my birthday. I am officially a senior, 55. Although my Mom says I am not a senior until I start to collect old age pension so on that basis I guess I have a another 10 years to go. As of tomorrow I will be officially retired from work. I have been using up banked vacation for some time now because I had to wait until my birthday, well now that I am 55 I can retire.

My birthday was a lovely quiet day. It was miserable weather, damp rainy and muggy all day. So we went to the farmers market in the morning and got a few fresh things and then came home and had a lazy afternoon reading and dozing.  In the afternoon I received a lovely bouquet of flowers and gift from my dear friend Kelly. Hubby bought me a new laptop and my mother got me a bunch of new tops, towels and a few other little trinkets. I am really am so lucky and spoiled.

Mom took Hubby and I out for dinner because she said I should not have to cook on my birthday. We went to a very nice restaurant and had a real feast. Mom and I shared baked brie with toasted almonds served with fresh fruit and baguette. I had Chicken Alfredo with fresh spring veggies, and for desert New York Cheesecake with Pecans and warm Caramel Jack Daniels sauce. It was all luscious.  

I think I have told you about our dog Shadow and how she likes to rest her head on anything well here is her latest pose, "I am resting my head on the foot stool" photo. I know I am her mother but isn't she adorable.

Kelly was down to visit me a couple of weeks ago and we had a great time.She brought 2 Elly Sienkiewicz DVD and we watched both of them while we stitched.

I am still working on getting the house sorted and somehow I cam barely bring myself to sew anything lately but I have loads of idea's. I am reading the new Jennifer Chiaverini book, The Aloha Quilt. So far not bad.

Best Friend is coming to Visit

Lots of things going  on in the last few weeks. Both of my quilt groups finished for the Summer. At Kawartha Quiltmakers we had a lovely catered lunch. All of the table were covered with lovely dresden plate table toppers and pretty floral centrepieces. Our lunch was sliced turkey and ham. salads fresh fruit and an amazing assortment of pies.

Trent Evening quilters had a fabulous evening Pot Luck which was great. I have never seen such an array of lovely home made foods. I have even picked up a few recipes for things to try.

I have been busy helping Mom with the gardening and we have had the remaining "dirt" covered with sod and It has been marathon of keeping the sprinkler on the grass. However it is looking very green around here, so we must be doing something right.

This weekend I am so looking forward to my dear friend Kelly who is going to come to me for a visit. I have to plan my menus and and clean house etc.

I have one final picture for you, the front of our house. The picture is a couple of years old but the front hasn't changed at all. 

I can't promise but I will try to keep my blog a little more current.
