May 30th fun!

I had a great Birthday yesterday!  We had tiger shrimp, scallops and lobster tails accompanied with Thunder Loaf (french bread with garlic butter and parmesan) for dinner last night - delish!!  Then we had a Lemon Marscapone Cake for dessert - the best cake ever!!

Vicki gave me an awesome pedicure as well - here are some pics (she's very dramatic!!!!!):

Seth loves anything to do with beer bottles (empty of course), Tim Horton coffee cups, empty Mickie bottles etc. 
These pictures look like we left Sethy with Lou and Lou couldn't wait for us to return!!  We were actually sitting very close to these goings on!!

Finally, Sethy is busy eating and with his mother!!! Note the happy look on Lou's face!!!

Look at the delivery I got!!

Marlo somehow escaped the other day, took the bus down to Bank Street, completed some unfinished business and came back home again.

This is what he was up to (aren't they gorgeous?):

Oh the Fun!!

So I asked Vicki if she liked canteloupe.  I got out my big slicer and this is the thanks I get!!
You'd think I'd have a more flattering outfit on for heavens sake!!!

Vicki's new do (I love it!!)

She arrives today!!!

At precisely 16:58, Vicki will be in Ottawa!  Lou and I can't wait!
Jennie and Sethy arrive at 12 noon on Saturday.  Then let the Sister's Week in Ottawa begin!! 
Too bad Petra couldn't come, maybe next year.

It's supposed to be 34 here today so I made sure to tell Vicki to pack some cool clothes!!!

Phew, she's some hot here and Happy Birthday!!!


Yesterday Lou and I finished the BBQ area, it looks rather nice.  We have to put down stepping stones about 11 feet or so from the shed for the picnic table.  Oh, and I painted the wooden shoes and they now POP!!!

Look at this bird!  He looks like he'd be an albino but he has dark eyes.

What are you doing this May Two four weekend?

We are trying to tackle some things in the backyard to make it more sexy!!  That's what we're doing.
Here is the progress so far:

The Green Egg and hot plate area  (notice the cups and saucers of pansies?  Lou told me I was stinking up his grilling area with 'girly stuff'):

Prepping the area to put the gas BBQ:
The herb garden from the back step:
The yellow cup and saucer of pansies:
The red cup and saucer with baby pansies:
The side garden with nothing but basil in the wooden box:
A strawberry planter with double impatiens and fuschia:

A cute little planter hanging over the fence to add colour:

A new plant hanger from Home Depot:

The Lily of the Valley are out in force by the front walkway:

Baiting, baiting.......

Lou and I thought Marlo was posing like this because he wanted us to come and rub his belly - Nope!
He lies like this until one of us gets up, then he's up on all fours heading straight to his treat jar!!!

Sung to the tune for "Swimming, swimming in the swimming pool, some days are hot some days are cold, swimming in the pool......

Bai-ting, bai-ting,
Bai-ting my Mom-my,
How I wish that she would get up,
And put some-thing in my tum-my.
Bai-ting, bait-ing,
Bai-ting my Mom-my,
How I wish that she would give me,
Some-thing real-ly yum-my!

This has to be my most favourite project yet!!  The papers are from October Afternoon - Thrift Shop.  They are gorgeous and vintagy.  The pics I am posting are Stephanie's as I don't have time to take pictures of mine, but they are the same I promise!!!
