So Many Dreams, So Little Time



“There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say,

"Yes, I've got dreams, of course I've got dreams."

Then they put the box away and bring it out

once in awhile to look in it, 

and yep, they're still there.”

~ Erma Bombeck





Dreams are more easily worked on during the weekends.

That's why the dust bunnies will have to wait awhile longer...
besides...
they all seem very content curled up in corners
and under the couch
I wouldn't want to disturb them...

Investment vs Expense

So when I talked about 'indulging' myself Friday
and showed you my steeped tea travel mug,
that wasn't exactly the purchase I was talking about...




THIS was what I was talking about...

I have been looking at the Canon 7D for awhile now
and when I went to pick up the Kelly Moore Camera bag
at Don's Photo in Regina where I ordered it from
{isn't it cute?  it looks just like a purse!}
this camera was on sale and calling my name!

Really Wayne...it's an investment.
No ~ new golf clubs for you is NOT an investment.
That would be an expense.

Good-bye Tim... Hello David!

I took the day off from work yesterday
and headed into Regina shopping for the day.

Just me ~ all by myself.

I am afraid I indulged myself a little too much.
But what is life for if not for enjoyment ~ right?

I will share over the next few days my 'fun purchases'
but first off...

You know I like my tea!
And I especially love my Tim Horton's Steeped Tea.
But the price increased ~ again.
At the least I was spending $35 per month but
would often go up to $70 per month on Timmie's tea.

Well no more...

introducing....




With this special travel mug that steeps the tea inside
and has a little compartment at the bottom of the cup
to store some more dried tea to use later on during the day,
I will be spending money at Timmie's no more!

No more paper cups going into the environment every day either!

{a very good way to celebrate Earth Day I think!}

My beautiful travel mug will pay for itself 
in less than a month
and the tea cans are refillable
thus saving on packaging too!

For right now, I just started with 4 samples of tea:
Read My Lips - a black tea that smells and tastes like mint chocolate
Secret Weapon - a white tea that has almonds and cocoa
Strawberry White - a white tea that has strawberries and smells heavenly
Get Lucky - a black tea with fruit and nuts

With other fun tea names such as:
Fantasy Island
White Tiger
Jumpy Monkey
Three Wishes

how could a girl resist?
 Especially when they throw in a cute little canvas bag as well!!

Now....
please excuse me while I sip on my "Secret Weapon" and
go catch up with all you beautiful people!!!

Happy Good Friday 
and have a wonderful Easter Weekend!

I Knew There Was A Reason...

I knew there was a reason
why I hadn't put away my snowflake lights yet...



Big fluffy flakes last night....
again...


Sorry I put you outside so early fairy girls!






A bit of snow for the birdies...






I hope the Easter Bunny is able to find his way!

CATuesday ~ Dressing Up Your Cat


Since you know how much cats LOVE to be dressed up...

{hmmm..... I don't like where this is headed....}


I bought fluffy bunny ears head band for Banjo...

{I am not amused}


he ran away but I tried again...

{I'm trying to watch the Feather channel here!}


then I got Kurtis to try and help me...


{this is getting ridiculous}


he thought he would be funny and put them on Banjo's butt...

{oh yea... real funny...}


I guess he didn't like them much...

I best just stick to having Banjo
help me put on musical plays...

{match maker match maker make me a match
find me a find catch me a catch...}




Happy CATuesday!

Snow Doubt About It!

"A lot of people like snow.
I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water."
~ Carl Reiner




Yup ~ still snowing.....



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*


A new friend, Barbara from Confessions of a Photography Addict bestowed upon me the Stylish Blogger Award ~ thank you Barbara! Go check out her fantastic photos!



7 things about myself ~ that you don't already know (very difficult!):

1. The only vegetables I don't like are turnips
2. I love cream cheese with brown beans sandwiches
3. I hate hair in the bathtub ~ even if it's mine
4. I waitressed for 4 years during high school
5. I love the show 'Storage Wars'
6. My favourite 'Hollywood' couple ~ Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck
7. I take allergy medication every morning

And, instead of passing it on like I'm supposed to, I will be lame once again and say "How can I choose? You are all so sweet!" Because you are!

Thank you again Barbara!


PS ~ the owls below are actually standing in glass stones ~ not Smarties or M&Ms. But they really do look like candy don't they?? :)

Sunshine Joy

Sunshine streaming through my kitchen window
flowers drinking in the sun
brings me joy...

Sunshine streaming through windowsill bottles
light dancing everywhere
brings me joy...

Sunlight streaming down onto the kitchen floor
kitty in a puddle
brings me joy...

and I think...

it brings Banjo joy as well...

he's just not showing it...


the sunshine was glorious yesterday
everyone enjoyed it to it's fullest...
