Catnip & Honeysuckle

I brought home from Victoria a new
Catnip Toy for Banjo
full of Catnip and Honeysuckle.

I think he liked it.

All That Anticipation

Vacation recap:

Mornings were spent sitting out
on our hotel room deck drinking tea.

Even if it rained, due to a glass overhang
we were able to still sit outside.

If you got a little chilled while eating or drinking outside?
There were always complementary blankets and
heaters at most restaurants.

Catherine Street  :)

Sunday was my most favorite day.
I hope to never take for granted the fact that I
have a husband who humours me.

First stop was Bulk Barn to buy organic oat flakes
(yes, the more expensive 'organic') and seeds
and then we spent over an hour and a half at
Beacon Hill as I wanted to feed the ducks.

And what happens when you run out of food?
Those ducks follow you.
Right past Stanley.
 They knew who the supplier was....
I didn't want to leave the squirrels out.
But they were not as agreeable to
eat out of my hand like the ducks.
Maybe they wanted nuts rather than seeds.

Then another hour and a half sitting on a beach
searching for pretty rocks and sea glass
of which both were plentiful.

There were a few refreshing beverages consumed.

So many wonderful restaurants to try
and excellent food to eat!

Luckily, we walked lots too!

We lucked out with the weather and had
3 very hot days
1 cool but nice day
1 windy day - spent in a rental car touring outer Victoria
1 rainy day - spent at the imax and shopping

And as much as we love Victoria,
we are always very happy to go home.

And home we came.

All that anticipation over holidays
and they go by in a blink.
It's hard to hang on to that feeling
of relaxation and contentment.

But I shall try.

I shall start again...

About a month ago someone told me
"You will drive yourself insane trying to
rationalize someone else's irrational actions/decisions."

It hit me like a ton of bricks.
I mean, that was my very first post for this year.
One of the things I wanted to work on.

And there I was, mid-August,
failing miserably.

Well...I shall start again.


Hello my dear readers! Yes, I am still alive and well in Southwest Saskatchewan. My boys are all fine; hubby, son and kitty included. Stanley and I just got home from our beloved Victoria where we spent a wonderful week of site seeing, walking, eating and partaking in many refreshing beverages...  

I am trying to make my last 10 days of 26 days holidays stretch out to their fullest. 

My blog email account seems to be locking me out - so if you have sent me emails over the last few months, I apologize on my unresponsiveness.  I hope to get it figured out soon.

I look forward to a long warm fall - predictions of El Nino for the Prairie Provinces (woot woot!) - and to continue finding ways to slow that little hamster down that constantly runs on the wheel in my brain...

All that and yet...

 On Sundays in the summer,
while Stanley is off golfing,
I often go to Riverdene Park.
There are 3 sets of stairs in the park,
and I run them.

I did a personal BEST yesterday
150 flights of stairs.

Not bad for a gal that turned 50 this year huh?

It takes an elevation of 10 feet 
which is about 20 steps up
(steps down doesn't count)
to register as 1 floor on a Fitbit...

That means I climbed about 3000 steps up!

I'm nearing 20,000 lifetime floors climbed...

All that and yet
still no Buns of Steel...

What is up with that?

"I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying
I gotta start working out. It's been about two months since
I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which odd. Because
I have the time to go out to dinner. And uh..and watch tv.. and get a
bone density test. And uh.. try to figure out what my
phone number spells in words..."  - Ellen DeGeneres

Happy August!
