Time for a break!



My Jack Russell Shiquita dropping a toy in my lap and reminding me its time for a break from hooking!

Woody Island, Placentia Bay NL

Woody Island the home of my childhood days! On the last weekend of September I am hosting the Woody Island Hook-in. A rug Hookers Retreat. Woody Island -This quaint outport fishing village once boasted a population of 400 before government resettlement forced most to relocate elsewhere in the province. Today Woody Island is home to mainly summer visitors who vacation or enjoy weekend getaways in this spectacular and pristine Canadian destination.

Looking forward to the boat ride up, the wonderful meals, great service, not having to do dishes, or housework and most of all spending time with some wonderful like minded people and spend all weekend hooking with maybe a hike or two.  For me- The Perfect Weekend! 
What a view from the deck.

Craft of a Different Sort!

Its Food Fishery time in Newfoundland and Labrador....this happens twice a year and Newfoundlanders love to take to the water for Cod.

This fish was caught off Change Islands, NL.

The picture was taken in Stacey's Stage....my brothers summer place on the Island and one of my hookings :-)

Procrastination ---- A Good or Bad Thing....


Procrastination--the act of procrastinating; putting off or delaying or deferring an action to a later time.
"Procrastination is the thief of time" [Edward Young The Complaint: Night Thoughts]
Here I beg to differ.....when I am procrastinating on one thing I get completely engrossed in something else.....so procrastination is actually productive for me.....
example: 
Paperwork....gets me a very clean house....
Housework......gives me some quality hooking time......
Laundry gives me time at the paper work.....see it all eventually gets done!

Old Christmas Day...

It's a crisp evening.......cold and the pond is freezing over in front of the house...smell of woodsmoke in the air....I am finished work for the day, ...just filled the bird feeders and put out peanuts for the Blue Jays in case I turn over in the morning :-) got nice smell of supper cooking on the stove.....and I am ready to settle in for an evening of hooking :-)  so peaceful...
