~Off To New York ~But, First......

We are almost ready to go...I have a couple of shirts to still iron....but cookies are baked and all my saved magazines for my sweet girl are in the car. (She has been so ill with h1n1 and pneumonia) I have my camera ready and this time I remembered the card! lol! I hope to take lots of great pictures on the trip thru Canada and upper NY state....We go up thru Ontario, thru Toronto, almost to Montreal. We turn at Cornwall and cross the highest, oldest, rustiest, narrow and scary bridge over the St. Lawrence Seaway to Cornwall Island and then up over a newer bridge over more of the Seaway...Hubby has to drive these bridges and he has to go exactly 30mph (the speed limit) or I will come unglued. Can you believe on that narrow bridge people will come whizzing around you??? They do!

There is a sign on the Canadian side that says "The Cornwall Bridge is coming down." We had the girls with us, on one trip, and they became alarmed as they thought it to mean it could come down anytime! hahaha! I think those bridges unnerve them as well! I notice their Father was rather quiet about his drive over on them, too. I try not to dwell on them going as we are about 8 hours or more before getting to them and then I relax coming home after we get over them as they are at the beginning of our trip....

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.....I am so ready for the turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy and pumpkin pie....I will have to be careful not to gain back the weight I have worked so hard to loose!!


Here is a pretty Cottage style chair cozy that I have listed on EBAY
The measurements are on the listing as well as a picture of the shape of chair back it will fit....I love making these as I think they are the sweetest addition to a sweet cottage room.

I take orders for these to fit most styles of decor and I am happy to work within your budget!

If you like pink and feathers, glitter and fru fru in general, you might take a fancy to the pink
tweet" ornaments I have listed on EBAY

These are so fru fru and cute....they are all in pink and frothy feminine! With their flat little bottoms they will romance a shelf with their tail feather falling over the edge....Of course, they look wonderful on the Christmas tree, too.....

Back to the packing...

WHAT?????
I'm from Cornwall Jill. I just about fell off my chair right now.
I left when I was 18, but yup I know what you mean about the bridge. Wait till you see the surroundings now. The mill "Domtar" is completely gone and flattened out.
We just drove over that "bridge" last week. We had to go to Messena and pick up some books. I have travelled that same route to N.Y. many many times. I LOVE N.Y. We took my girlfriend there in Aug.
Oh have a fab time and don't worry, the bridge will be OK... promise.
Love your chair cozies. We will talk soon.
Love Claudie from Ottawa/Plantagenet/Mtl. lol

Love the chair cozies,Jill...those would really make a room. And I love the goodies you found at TJMaxx - makes me want to go take a look at our TJ's. I'll be thinking of you over Thanksgiving and of your daughter who's been so ill. I will be praying for you all.

Well I know by now you are on your way home and that you had a wonderful time. I am praying you over those bridges and I know you will have a good trip back home. Yes, I had a great birthday, but now I am a year older.....I don't feel it however and what a blessing that is. My son says 80 is the new 40. I turned 79 and feel 50. It will be quite a stretch to feel 40 next year when I turn 80, but we will see. God is an awesome God so I just may feel only 40 next year. I love your chair cozies and your choice of fabrics is perfect. Hugs.......Pauline
