How is everyone doing today? The wee house looks great. I'll just settle in with my coffee and wait for everyone to come in.

Anyone see Catherine walking by? I heard some exercising stepping outside..I thought it must be her practicing for her big walk...one foot in front of the other....... laugh.gif
annie laurie
Tammy enjoy your coffee, Catherine will be a while as she has to catch up with all her laundry and then I am sure she will be doing her practice run,we have to be nice to Catherine because she is doing us proud, so maybe you can schedule the housework, to some othe other gals, i would help you myself, but I am retired I will leave it to the younger ones O>K> Marina a rare wee worker, so is Angela, and Lia, so you wont be short of a hand Tammy and I know you love to see the place nice and tidy also, cheers

Annie, I have to agree with you..Catherine is a wee gem herself. She has a lot of energy and some to spare! She'll do us all proud on her walk. It will be a piece of cake for her too! We can all cheer her on from the house here and have a celebratory party when she crosses the finish line! I'll start the food and drink list. And get those stairs done and all. wub.gif
