Memories Forever, Paper Piecing

We are at Memories Forever

It is a nice place

This year we are not only scrapbooking but 3 sowing machines are zooming

It's a good time to visit

I am paper piecing, 
this Duck with ducklings was the hardest, so far

It sure looks cute though

A pair of Cardinals

The Cardinals come to the feeder regularly

The male is much more red

But the Female has some beautiful colouring too

Love the feathers on her head

Miserable Weather

The wind is blowing

Visibility is an issue
The shoes in the garage are getting white

Still lots of snow by the back door

and blown on the windows

The Cows on the new Mattresses

Cows are creatures of habit
this one is still on the older matts because this is "her spot"

But over all the cows seem happy

It is still cold

and the only flowers outside are on the windows

SHIP Gluttony

The church is decorated for Lent

Purple hanging from the balcony


just one problem today, the projector stopped working
so we're using the computer and a portable projector on a wall
with an angle surface

So Angie is moving text on the flat angle
a few hours work

Gluttony is not only about food but:
the soul's addiction to excess

in one word: MORE

The opposite is to be content like Paul in Philippians 4

New Mattresses for the Cows

The New Mattresses come in 3 layers
The middle layer is very soft
Rolling out the heavy top layer

Roll it over on the top

people were spread out evenly
but those in the middle had the hardest pull

Other side, clipping on vice grips

Nice when there are enough people to pull

Straighten out the waves

Taking out the old cow Mattresses

A big day today, we were surprised they showed up with this cold

Every time the door opens there is instant Fog

Cutting up the old mattress in pieces

and grinding off the old base boards

Remove the top layer, then the rubber filled tubes
Looking through a cleaned patch (removed ice) 
So the Skid Steer can come in again without having the door open to long

Even mid-day still -20C
what a cold day!

Indoor Walking

It doesn't really look like outside hiking is a good idea
So these days we are putting on our hiking shoes

and hike in Elmira on the indoor track

5 x around is 1 km

Coby walked 16 and Marg and I went 14x around 1/2 hour
it's good exercise and not on cement but on rubber

Our church Family

Owen was baptized

Marc's team was playing

Gary enjoying the songs

I took a picture from Jim too when he was playing loud
but it didn't turn out as good as this one


Some young people in line

and a popular table for the older generation
