Hey Banjo!
What do you think of that bird
taking over CATuesday?

Enjoying the Last Days of July

“What good is the warmth of summer,
without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” ~ John Steinbeck 

Please forgive my absence today.

I am in my garden this morning
and at Saskatchewan Landing Marina this afternoon
trying to hang on to the last few days of July.

Wishing you a beautiful Sunday.

My Lucky Penny

This is my friend Penny.
(I promised her I would 'airbrush' us both equally... so I did... LOL!)

Penny and I walk to Tim Horton's almost every morning
(sometimes in the afternoon too) for our Large Steeped Teas.

My friend Penny has been feeling very discombobulated
by the fact that in March of this year
the Canadian Government announced
  • "Canada Getting Rid of Penny to Save Costs" (the steeped tea is only $1.75!)
  • "Penny's Days Are Numbered" (numbered? she's the same age as me!)
  • "Say Good-bye to Penny" (why?  where's she going?)
  • "A Penny-less Canada" (why wouldn't we want Penny in Canada?)
and in May of this year
  • "Last Canadian Penny Made" (well...she is an original...)

I don't know about you, but I believe that:
  • A Penny is for helping wishes come true
  • A Penny is for your thoughts
  • A Penny will bring you good luck
  • Penny's are from heaven
  • A Penny saved is a Penny earned...

hmmmm... maybe that one doesn't really make sense... or cents...
(OMG I am funny...)

And look what she bought me the other day!
The cuttest little TEA towel for my kitchen!
Love it!

I know a good Penny when I see one... I think I'll keep her.

I wish everyone could be lucky enough
to have a Penny for a friend like me.

Thank you for being my friend Penny!

Who's Having a Birthday? And Staying Safe.

Who's having a birthday today?
Well it's Stanley!
a.k.a. Wayne
a.k.a. Hubby

I guess 'back in the day'
his mother's floor was so clean
you could eat off it.

And back in the day
you didn't think twice
about bathing your baby in the kitchen sink
near an electrical appliance and a power outlet.

Oh, you want to play with your gun
around your best friend and the family cat?
Not a problem!

I'm so glad this generation
has so much more common sense...

maybe we don't.

Have a good birthday Stanley!

Count Down

  • 5 months until Christmas Eve
  • 4 months until my Christmas tree is up
  • 3 months (less than) until Thanksgiving (Canada)
  • 2 months (less than) until our 24th Wedding Anniversary
  • 1 month until my 3 weeks of holidays

I just thought I would point that out...

Happy Tuesday to you!

Random Thoughts ~ Project Me

am I being the best 'ME' I can be?

inside and out?

am I being the person I want to be?

in my heart and in my mind?

what stops a person from achieving their dreams?

is it time? money? others? ourselves?

get out of my way world...

I am a gal on a mission

and I am just getting started...


hmmm... too much?

CATuesday ~ cat haven

A trip out to my friend Shannon's
to visit her many many cats and kittens
always brings me JOY.

There were many kittens but most of them
still to wild to catch.
Shannon's daughter is the resident
kitten 'wrangler and tamer'.
This little one had a sore eye.
Not to worry,
Shannon will get him all fixed up.

There are pups...

There are horses...

There's a horse that thinks it's a dog...

There's baby birds...

But you know it's all about the cats...
This is green eyed Betty ~ she is adorable!

This is Rocky.
He's the resident King.

There had to be at least 30 cats at Shannon's.
All healthy and happy.
She takes very good care of them.
They are fed well,
and loved.

You can see photos
from my last trip out to Shannon's at

Happy Tuesday cat lovers!

Let's think about that for a bit...

so much easier to take when you don't have to work...


Wayne and I spent Friday night
and all day Saturday in Regina.

we spent a muggy Saturday morning
in one of many beautiful parks

there were
and walkways

the Farmer's Market had
and pups

there's only about
7 weeks left of summer
(here in Saskatchewan at least)
that will bring us to September 1
that means FALL to me


my 'fortune' from dinner Friday night...

is this really a 'fortune'?
or just a good piece of advice?

Wishing you a beautiful Monday!

Too Deep For a Friday

Do you worry about people that are mad at you?
Do you let them rent space in your head?
What did I do to make you stop talking to me?
What did I say that made you angry enough to stop being my friend?

I can't live with hate in my stomach.
It makes me physically sick.
I can't live with hate in my mind.
I personally don't have the space to waste.

I can live with indifference.
I can live with drifting apart.

I can not hold a grudge forever.
It's not in my nature.
Everyone has good in them.
It's not black and white.

Know that I will cherish each moment of our friendship.
Know that I will mentally wish you peace and happiness.
But I must move forward with indifference,
for love and hate are too closely related.

"I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.


Sorry ~ that was MUCH too deep for a Friday...

So on a lighter note...

I have a four day weekend starting today ~ no work for me! ~ woot woot!

Oh the possibilities...

  • Going swimming ~ wearing a two piece bathing suit!  (I know...scary isn't it?)
  • Regina Farmer's Market
  • Did someone say shopping?
  • Tea in the garden
  • Working on my new Art Journal
  • Possibilities, possibilites, possibilities...

Have a wonderful weekend!

CATuesday ~ who's a spoiled kitty?

We bought Banjo a new 'perch' on Saturday
for in front of the living room window.

He hasn't much
moved out of it since.

you are worth it Banjo.
