A good start to the new year

Annapolis Valley Register - - EVENTS -

The days will start to lengthen now, and I am start­ing to think of spring.

The boys kept a very close eye on Grandma cir­cling the Christ­mas ven­dors stalls, it seems, and I now have the bright­est yel­low and red bird­house with a black coat hook perch from my grand­sons that I was look­ing at. I can’t wait to put it up to see who takes up res­i­dence. ***

I have been lucky with the roads on my trav­els so far this win­ter, and I am lov­ing the drop in gas prices. It was below 96 cents be­fore New Year’s Day. One more rea­son for a Happy New Year!

Re­mem­ber, the Big Break­fast is on Jan 19.

The Cen­tre­ville Good Neigh­bour Club will meet at the hall Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. Please drop in and join us. ***

A big thank you to the Pins & Nee­dle Group and Piece Mak­ers. Both made their do­na­tions to the Can­ning Food Bank for the Christ­mas sea­son. P&N will be back in op­er­a­tion Jan. 3 and Piece Mak­ers on Jan. 7.

Did you know the win­ter 2018 is­sue of the “Quil­ter’s Con­nec­tion” mag­a­zine has an ar­ti­cle in it about our Jean Bry­don and her grand­chil­dren’s grad­u­a­tion quilts? Some of Bry­don’s work has been on dis­play at the Cen­tre­ville Quilt and Rug Hook­ing Show.

Ladies who were lucky enough to have signed up for Cabin Fever Jan 25 and 26, well, it is time to start get­ting “your quilt project/ projects” ready. Look­ing for­ward to see­ing you all there.

Watch the ice build-up on your heat pumps with these tem­per­a­ture and weather swings and re­mem­ber to have some­one check your house if you are away from the area.
