onyxnox - the city isn't picking up the tree debris??  They are here!  We just have to have the branches out front and eventually someone will come get it.  I'm glad to hear you have power, I know that 260,000 people in your area are without, we lost ours for a night and was relieved when it came back on at 5 am!

I think the city will only pick up the stuff on the streets and sidewalks.  I am not sure about stuff that is actually on the property, unless it is at immediate risk to power lines, or safety.  Unfortunately we have about half a maple over our workshop/garage now and it is too slippery and dangerous for DH to go up there and try to get it down or chainsaw it himself.  For that matter, a large limb is hanging over our roof over the bedroom and there is still a couple of large limbs off our birch tree over the front too.  We have power because we have a generator, but the power lines are still down.  DH is helping the neighbours set up their new gennie right now.  My mother just called and reassured me that they have power back as of 15 minutes ago.

You're out near Kingston aren't you?  I think the problem is that there are so many older neighbourhoods in the city that have such large mature trees, and overhead lines.  One of the things I loved about our area is the large shady trees - which I thought was only a pain in the butt come the fall and the need to rake the debris up.  Oh well, two major black outs in 10 years is nothing to get my knickers in a knot over.  We went for a week without it at the cottage one year and I am rather adept at cooking on a woodstove if needed Cheesy

I was planning on making hot soup, picking up salt, wood to burn, water, etc for my parents tomorrow, but now that I heard they have power back, it is a huge weight off my shoulders and I feel quite cheerful now.

Nope, I'm in Hamilton.  The morning after the storm the city had wood chippers down the street cleaning up a massive tree that went over so theyre picking up all of it here.  I hope you get it resolved easily! And stay safe too and I really hope your power comes back on soon it must be a huge relief that your parents power is back on!

I think I'm going to join, I figure it is a quick and easy swap I can do, will hand in my questionnaire after all the business is done.

I absolutely love love quilts, do you think an afghan is a fair trade for a quilt? I'd love to swap!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday!  I have added feedback for everyone who sent in their info over the past few days.

So where are your favorite places to shop for whimsies?  Online?

I like Etsy, Tiny Things are Cute, Manto Fev, and Sky Blue Pink which are all online.

YES! I love the whimsy swaps! Just sent my info!  Grin

I will be out of town June 11-20 with limited computer access. (Be patient with me, I'm on the beach!)
