The Wedding Invitations are done!

They are in envelopes in boxes waiting for address labels and stamps. Pictures to follow.  What a relief, now if I can get them into the mail before Canada Post strikes, I will do the happy dance.

Ackk!!! Blogger is messed up for me

I haven't been able to get into blogger for a few days. Endless log in loop. Finally tried IE8 and now I can post. I am hoping that Blogger will get this fix so I can back to using Chrome.
Wedding invitations 50 are done, not in the mail but done.  I am hoping to get them all in the mail Monday, before Canada Post goes on strike.
Been very neglectful of diet and exercise. Monday, I am hitting the exercise big time.
Won't be able to do the treadmill though.  At the moment I have water running down the wall in my basement beside the treadmill.  We have a plugged eaves trough on the condo and the water is coming my dryer vent.  Condo management can't or won't do anything until it stops raining, big help that is. I'll have to check again tonight and make sure nothing can get wet.  One big problem is that the electric outlet for the dryer is right where the water is coming down.  I turned the switch off at the panel, but will need to have an electrician look at it before I can use it.  Might have to buy some clothes, but I did want to lose a few pounds before that.

I'll post invitation pictures once I have them in the mail, at least then you can look at pretty pictures. I'll also post some cat pictures too, many sneak in a kitten photo or 2.  I haven't been able to get out to see the kittens.  I hope to soon. I do hope I can find a sweet thing that is a lap kitty.  Katie keeps trying to be a lap kitty, (she is so silly) but really doesn't like to be on your lap unless you have paper there lol.

Any way just thought I would post so you know I am having blog issues

Please if you pass by my lonely little blog, do drop a comment and say hi

Jillian Michaels: Our Food System Is Set Up to Fail + Book Giveaway | Maria's Farm Country Kitchen

Jillian Michaels: Our Food System Is Set Up to Fail + Book Giveaway | Maria's Farm Country Kitchen

A good article, of course related to the United States, but the rest of the world needs to stand up and do something in there own countries. The multinational companies will take over our food supplies, Monsanto, already have too much control i third world countries, stopping the little farmer from being able to feed himself and his family.

Making Progress

On wedding invitations at least lol.  I have about 50 library envelopes done, that is cut glued and distressed. I have about 105 book pages done and cut in half, I will trim the rest today, if not busy at work.  Think I will have N come over to help with the dry embossing, this weekend. Maybe will start assembly, still waiting on a stampmajig to do the stamping.  Might have to youtube a makeshift one. Did take pictures, but will only post them once the invitations are in the mail.

Mac seems to be doing all right at the moment. Hubby is taking a wait and see approach.  Still waiting on call backs for about 4 jobs, it's the old hurry up and wait.  Need something soon.

I am hoping to take a bit of a break on Sunday and pop to Okotoks to see kittens, they are still young, but still be nice to see them.

Life Update

Really nothing much going on.  Just life as I know it.
Still working on the wedding invitations lots still to do, mostly cutting the library pockets and the library card RSVP.  They are going to look awesome if I say so myself. (reminder to self take pictures of the process).
Spent Mother's Day at the emergency vet with the Eskie MacLeod, he fell from our bed and injured his left from leg.  Soft tissue injury with out taking x-rays was the diagnoses.  His liver or kidney enzymes were elevated so no anti inflammatories, just pain killers, so the poor boy is doped up on opiates.  Mother's Day supper was at Swiss Chalet with my Mom, hubby, our son and gf, my sister, her son and DIL along with her Mom and Grandma. It was a wonder evening out.  Sure beat the heck out of cooking.
DH got my a Kobo, I might have mention that before, not that I seem to have time to read lol.

Hubby still is not working, everyone keeps saying soon. ACK!!!! Wish he know have to cut on the Silhouette lol.
Had a card class last night, I'll post pictures later. Made my Mom a wonderful, no time to take a picture (good thing she keeps them).
Tag Tuesday today at Scrapbookers Paradise, then home to do some cutting of library pockets.

Sad News at - A litter of strays, wiggling live.

I'm afraid we have some bad news. Pony wasn't doing so well on Sunday night, so we took him to the vet. He was severely dehydrated, and his condition was assumed to be congenital. The vet ran a blood test and he came back positive for FELV. FELV is almost always lethal in kittens, and with the vet's strong recommendation we had him put down. He is sorely missed.

Unfortunately, Pony almost certainly contracted FELV from Oscarina, and the rest of the litter is at high risk. We are taking them to the vet this afternoon and will post updates here when possible.

Want to help? FELV+ cats have special needs. Most importantly, they must live either alone or with other FELV+ cats, and must lead indoor lives. If you or somebody you know could provide a loving home to an FELV+ cat, please contactADOPTION@KITTENCAM.ORG.
