what sunday morning better spent
than with a cup of tea
sitting on your patio
as the last little bits of summer
your last day of summer holidays
nears to it's end

I have a friend (and one of my most loyal readers!) who hasn't been feeling very well the last couple of weeks. She is a super hard worker, has never missed a day of work up until now, is always busy doing something, doesn't really watch TV... (honestly Angela...how are you supposed to keep up on the celebrity gossip if you don't watch 'trash TV'???) and is finding it very hard to lay still and not move... (funny...I've been on holidays for 3 weeks and could easily stay laying in my bed, with my lap top, watching TV, never getting dressed... if only Wayne would move a small bar fridge in to our bedroom so I could have some snacks near by...!!!...hmmm...) Her and I have had some great conversations over the years, most of it being her laughing at my stories ~ 'cause she thinks I'm funny! :-)
She seems to get the most laughs out of my stories about Kurtis. Such as when I told her that this year Kurtis went to the Dollar Store for my mother's day gift and asked his dad if he wanted to 'go halfsies' with him...!!!...halfsies...at the Dollar Store!!!... honestly...can you imagine?...tsk... Not to mention that I had just went with him a week before that to the jewelry store (J-E-W-E-L-R-Y STORE...) to help him pick out a necklace for his girlfriend as they were celebrating their 6 month anniversary!!!!! Geeawwd!!! sigh.... it sucks to become #2 in your beloved son's life...the son you went through 31 hours of pain to give life to...
It's people like her that swell my head and keep me on a role as I will say and do most anything if it will make someone smile and laugh ~ which ~ as they say ~ is 'good medicine'. So I am very happy you have been able to peek in at my blog every day and hope that I am helping to entertain you a bit ~ as of course ~ I tease ~ I totally understand the difference between choosing not to move compared to being unable to move and so it is with my most hopefully heart that I send out to you all my good thoughts and love and wish you a speedy recovery so that you are up and 'back at it' very soon! Take care!

One day... I may (maaaayyyy.... might... perhaps... but don't really care enough that my heart would be broken if I never did...) be convinced to take a plane again to go to the East Coast. I have it in my head that I want to go sit in a pub in Newfoundland with the locals, stay in small, unique towns along the way and basically see the sites of East Canada.
But until that time, I am perfectly content staying at home for my holidays, to putter around the house, go on little day trips (as there really is lots to see in Saskatchewan if you choose to go looking...) and never straying from the 3 Prairie Provinces.
So as I start my last 3 days of holidays this morning, I shall enjoy the fact that my family is here with me, healthy and happy, and that life is good! What more does a gal need? :-)

While Katrina and I walked around with our cameras, we tried not to look too much like tourists...hopefully our British accents threw them off...ha ha ha!

And with that ~ I am off to drink my tea, eat my yogurt with berries and then head down to my craft room. Have a lovely day whether you are working today or lucky enough to be off like me!

without too much movement
seeds flying everywhere
looking for the sunflower seeds
sorting through the undesirable seeds...
~ silly bird ~
Not to worry
the Doves and the Sparrows
will clean up after you!
too shy to get in on the action?
Always watching the world
from the inside out ~

Getting ready to leave for Moose Jaw with my friend Katrina. We are taking our cameras and going to stop where ever we want to stop to take pictures, go to all the unique stores down town, have a lovely lunch, do a bit of shopping and basically do just what we feel like doing! I am looking very forward to it!
Hope you are all doing something special today too!

I was going to save this until our wedding anniversary - but you shouldn't wait to tell people you love them should you. No indeed! So here it is - my "Lucky" video. Music by Jason Mraz & Colbie Caillat. And as you can tell, I'm no Walt Disney - but it was a fun putting it together!

It is cool and rainy today! (It sadly feels so much like fall today - eek!) I am making myself another mug of tea, having a hot bath, get dressed into something comfy cozy, and crawling under a warm fuzzy blanket to watch a movie. If you are having the same kind of dreary day and have the luxury to do so, I suggest you follow my lead... :-) Have a great Sunday either way!

Look what you learned today! Hmmm... I am thinking someone should let those Pelicans know that they are simply sitting in a rain pond in the middle of some farmer's field. No fish to be found there! Perhaps they are just having a rest on their way to the Saskatchewan Landing.
