So long I know...

It was a lovely and busy summer! 
My daughter and her boyfriend painted the living room for me.  F+B Pavilion Gray.  Cannot express to you how much everyone loves the colour.  It is outstanding and simply perfect for this space.  I haven't finished the decorating yet, want a new mirror for above the fireplace and eventually would like white sofas, but for now I am content.
We had a great summer, rented a cottage up north for a month with all the kids and their boyfriends.  We had friends come up, spent the days eating, swimming and shopping.  Was relaxing and refreshing.
Daughter No 2 has gone back to Uni for her last year.  I miss her so when she is gone.  But she is planning on going to Grad school here (to become a dentist) so I will be happy when she is home, back studying here. 
My eldest has finished her graduate studies and is now living with my mom and dad.  Down the street.  I love it!
And my youngest is now 15, has a boyfriend and is loveeeee.
Time is definitely flying.
I have missed you all.  And still continue to read all my blogs.  I finally moved to Bloglovin.
Hopefully I will be back with updates on knitting!

Finally got that chair

So years ago I posted about how much I like this chair.  Well I needed a new chair for the family room and picked this up!  I love it!  It looks a little low but is extremely firm and quite comfy.  I love the pinstripe fabric, it coordinates so well with all the florals I have in the house.  I find that so many furniture pieces are so low now, very difficult for older people to get in and out of.  Unless you go for a wing chair, which I am not into right now. 
I wish I had more to report but things have been quite quiet here.  Which can be a good thing.  We have had a very cold and snowy winter and am looking forward to Spring in the worst way.  Still cold but at least the sun is shining!  The only real gossip here is the constant bullying and teasing by my ginger cat.  He terrorizes my poor pug endlessly.  If Marmalade gets yelled at or is in trouble he immediately smacks the dog.  He chases him, swats at him and occasionally ambushes him.  And the dog is so passive.  But we are working on a resolution!
Can you see the hate in his eyes?
I hope all is good with you.
Oh and very perturbed at the fact Google will no longer be offering "Reader".  Trying to figure a new way to view all my lovely blogs?  Anyone?
PS  Did you see who is back to blogging?  One of my all time favourites!
