it is a 4 coffee morning, sir

so this morning, after about 3.5 hours of sleep because my body just wouldn't settle down no matter what I did, I discover a parking ticket on my our underground parking...directly overtop of my parking permit...for parking on private property.

Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you start a morning off on the wrong foot.

Time Flies for an Anal Retentive Person Such as Myself

So I have recently learned a lot about myself. For instance, I am horrendously anal retentive. Much more so than I actually thought I was. I mean, I was fully aware that I had A.R. tendencies, but wow. In the few weeks that we have been engaged, I have already picked my dress out (not ordered, which would be much worse, but picked out), have the ceremony booked and deposit down on it, have the reception hall booked and the deposit down on it, have the invitations done (but no, will not be mailing them for some time), have the bridal party decided and asked (and have our first outing booked), have a dj, decided on a could go on, but it is almost sad. For those who find themselves suffering from A.R., I highly recommend Frugal Bride. Enough lists to make the most detail oriented person happy. :)

I am also much girlier than I thought. I am okay with that, and even I am finding the humor in it. But it is kinda odd. :S

I found out yesterday that, despite my thoughts to the contrary, our work has given us both Monday and Tuesday off. WEEEE!!! So, since my daughter`s daycare is open on Monday, we are dropping her off for a few hours, and partaking in some down and dirty golf. Can`t wait!!

We leave for Nova Scotia in less than 2 weeks. :) Can`t wait. There are some people that I am going to have to try to get in touch with before we leave to see if we can meet up (and yes, I am referring to you Hellcat, if you happen by here).

And finally, tomorrow I get to be engaged My ring was slightly too big. Just a touch. So I had to drop it in on Saturday of last week. So, of course, I have been having a blast this week using the good old standby of I don`t see a ring on my finger with the

Anywho, that is all.

When the Outlaws Come to Town

So, the outlaws flew in from Alberta for a few days last week, and we did more walking in the course of those few days than I think I have in the last 15 years...but it was a great time. Sunday, we went up to my daddy's boat:


best photo of the day:

Love the reflection in the water. And my babe did good...she caught 3 fish...the boys - 0.
We went to the zoo on Monday (where he proposed):
the yawning snake:

Ok, so I won't post all the pictures up here, since I got a whole s**tload, but the animals were fun. I forgot how much I loved the zoo.

So, Monday just past, while outside the pavillion in Africa (at the zoo), the boy proposed!

I gush...

Lordy it is nice to feel this happy.

I Feel Accomplished

So, despite feeling horribly ill over the last few days (sinuses have decided to kick my bum), I have accomplished so much. Made the curtains for our livingroom, put a backer curtain on my daughter's bright pink ones (her bedroom faces the afternoon/evening sun, so bedtime has become an impossibility at the moment). Well...I will let the photos do the typing for me. So, without further ado:
Summer fun with Cherries!!!

Sockies (they are so warm, and are keeping my feeties warm even right now):

Sexy rocking skirt:

One fetus sweater:

Pasties made for my partner from the Bad Knit Girl pasties swap (pattern provided by Bohoknitterchic:

Alas...I am now down to only 2 projects on the go. What has the world come to???
