Sunday, September 12, 2010


Today was  a very good day. I slept unusually well and only woke up once around 3:00 a.m. and went right back to sleep after a trip to know where... At 5:00 a.m. I was wide awake and jumped out of bed... well that may be a little exaggerated... I got vertical,  made my bed went to the bathroom ... brushed my teeth etc. I usually wake up around 6:30 and turn on the other side  and sometimes I'm too tired to get up and fall back asleep and get up in a panic... cause I'm late for work.

Today, Sunday I was ahead of the game. Got my Swiffer and dusted the floors in two bedrooms, two bathrooms and two hallways and the stairs. I folded some laundry and put another load of socks and under-wares  in the dryer, checked my emails and blog and did all this in my PJs while my husband snored in the other room. I put on my work clothes and went to the farm to do my chores and shortly after my husband George came to help me. After the chores my husband and I  went to our favorite restaurant for breakfast with friends we hadn't seen for a while and then we went went to church as usual.

Why was I so up-beat you ask?...  I'm not 100% sure but it must be because today I was going to meet Heidi Wulfratt  of London-Wul  at Yarns on York here in Fredericton for a Summer wind up knit-in with knitters from all over. I didn't had any knitting to work on but met some people who knows my daughter and took courses from her or bought her scarves or dyed wool etc.  I had a great time and was amazed at all the beautiful yarns there was to choose from and the variety of knitting project and a sweet little 5 weeks old baby in the mix.

 Actually I got the buzz from Heidi about this event  and she said that she'd be there around 2 ish so I arrived around that time.  I wanted to take pictures for my blog but in my haste, I left my camera in my office  and only realized that I  didn't had it with me when I went to reach for it in my purse. Nobody was taking pictures. Don't you just hate it when that happens?

 I was so happy to see Heidi again however that it really didn't matter. We had a lengthy conversation, laughed and exchanged several hugs and it made my day very special. Unfortunately I had to return to work around 4:00pm but happy I went.  Hope that you all had a safe trip back home Heidi and friends. JB


  1. Isn't it great when you wake up early AND perky on the same day? Lol. Sounds like fun visiting with Heidi and all the knitters. I keep meaning to get to her shop but it's better for my wallet if I don't!
    Yes, I did buy a lotto ticket! Did you? The bunny rug is a pattern I grabbed at deanne's. I enjoy designing my own, but with Deanne's studio right downtown, I get lazy and run in and buy one or two from time to time.

  2. No Kim, I didn't buy my ticket, I didn't even buy cream for my coffee for tomorrow morning. I was perky today but apparently not perky enough to think about. That means more chances for you to win. lol. JB

  3. loved, loved, loved seeing you again Julia.
    Your the best!

  4. Oh Heidi, thanks for saying that but the pleasure was all mine. It's was such a treat seeing you again. I just wish everyone on RHD would have a chance to meet you in person. I'm sure they are envious of me right now. Thanks for the invitation, I enjoyed myself and met people who know my daughter Jackie. You're the best of the best Heidi.

    Thanks for stopping by, Hugs. JB
