Oh, I am frustrated!

Finally got some work done on the bottom portion of Grahame's clock case. Papered the walls with red cardstock (using double-faced carpet tape to attach it to the foamcore) then built a foamcore stand for the drum kit. Couldn't find the black velvet I thought I had but did come across another piece of black fabric that worked. Glued the drum kit in place.

Don't know what the heck is going on with my camera! Usually, I connect it to my computer and the pictures show up on my screen, I import them and crop them and that's that...they're available for use.

I did manage to import this one but had to jump through hoops to import it and couldn't crop it at all. Surprised I could even load it here.

Hope I can figure out what the problem is and  fix it soon.

Rob and Leanne are treating me (with Leanne) to a trip to Peterborough to see Sean, Julie and the grandchildren! I'll rent a car for Leanne to drive us to Peterborough on Easter Sunday (my birthday) and we'll be there for Julie's birthday on the 31st. We'll be spending a special day with Jonah and Holly and Leanne is thinking about going to Ottawa for a day as she's never been there. Then we fly home EARLY on April 1st to meet my DS Marie and BIL Robert who will stay in the condo guest suite for the weekend for James and Aaryn's wedding on Saturday with the reception in the condo social room. Then on  Sunday, DBIL Grahame's sister and BIL arrive from New Zealand for Grahame's 80th birthday. Busy time but great to see family both in Ontario then here.

Oh, my, my calendar is filling up so much!


  1. You need to get yourself a "social secretary" just to keep up! Sounds like you'll have a wonderful time though. I love the red wall in the background of the room box. It goes really nicely with the tone of the wood. - Marilyn D., Oromocto, NB

  2. I like what I see so far. And sometimes my camera goes crazy to. Have fun on your trip
