Unfolding Wings


“If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.” 



Unfolding Wings
a.k.a 'Don't Rain on My Parade'

today's the day
your wings unfold
they've been cramped up far too long
spread them out, show them off
beautiful and bold

don't let anyone clip your wings
especially during flight
it's your sky too
use the space
 your completely within your right
~ Catherine

How do I know how far I walked?




it's supposed to get up to 33c today...
(that's 91F for my US friends)

could someone please tell the leaves
they don't need to be changing so quickly???

speaking of Celsius and Fahrenheit...

can anyone explain to me why
when there are only 3 countries in the whole world
that do not use the metric system
is it that my new treadmill that cost $1999.99
(sale price $999.99)
only tells me 'miles' instead of 'kilometers'?

most electronic things will let you program
for metric or the imperial system

even my pedometer that cost me $19.99
let's me switch between miles and kilometers!!!

I've written the company...
they haven't written me back

metric vs imperial system
daylight savings vs standard time...
well it's all so confusing isn't it???

Happy Tuesday!

(28 working hours until holidays...)

NOTE to BLOG Friends with 'word verification'
whether I use my iPad, Mac or PC, I can not pass through
your word verification.  I have tried several times.
I used to be able to,
but can't now for some reason.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Banjo
sitting at his usual perch
waiting for his timed food dish to go off

he was NOT a good kitty at the vet's on Friday
as per usual

but on the good news...
he's down to 16 lbs

svelte I would say!!


Especially when you remember
he used to weigh 30 lbs
over 6 years ago...


I know...
not healthy!!
Poor kitty!


But look at you now Banjo!
You look MARVELOUS!


Cats...
such self-confidence...

Happy Monday!

Rotten Apple Award - 1st


So my first ever
"Rotten Apple Award"
goes to.....
*drum roll*
the Kellogg's cereal makers!

BOOOOOOOO to Kellogg's!!!!

For shame Mr. Kellogg!
(or whoever is behind this fiasco)

For shame in coming up with another
sugar laden
idiotic
could it be any more unhealthy
cereal.

At a time when childhood obesity is at it's highest,
why on Earth do we need another 'chocolate' morning food.

Who in the H-E-double hockey sticks
needs chocolate for breakfast???
And you know I like me my chocolate ~ but really???



But look ~ says Mr. Kellogg ~
we have a claim on the box about the
"good source of fibre & whole grain"

Well...

let us read the ingredients....

sugar
sugar
sugar

oh!  Palm Oil!
Alright!
Can't you just feel your arteries closing in on you?

But wait...
here we go...
oat fiber
the 12th ingredient down...
and what's that?
more sugar
and more palm oil?
and then a bunch of ingredients
that I can't read or pronounce?

hmmmm....
dietary fibre 3g
sugars 11g
yup...
that sure does sound like
'good eats' to me!





So to you Mr. Kellogg,
I bestow on you
my own personal
Rotten Apple Award!

sigh...
freedom of speech...
it's a beautiful thing...

Have a Happy HEALTHY Wednesday!

The Game of Life




Did you choose where you are living?
Did circumstances make the choice for you?
Are you living in the town of your birth?
Did the dice of life get rolled and that is where the game piece put you?

I'm living here in Swift Current Saskatchewan by choice.
Wayne and I moved to this city after we were married.
We stayed here overnight on our honeymoon (on our way to Alberta).
We liked it.
So we moved here.
No connections.
Not too much thought put into it.
We've lived here for 23 years.

I would move to Medicine Hat Alberta in two seconds.
I love that city.
Not just because it has a great big outdoor chess set (LOL!)
but because being there just feels right.
I've had an itch for a number of years now (no... not that kind of itch!)
and I can't get rid of it.

Do you every get that itch to just pick up and move?

No Den-EYE-ing It



Don't you hate it when you get
something in your eye?

I'm Not Asking Why




It's the August Long Weekend

A Canadian Civic Holiday

I don't know what it's for.
I don't ask questions.
I just run with it.

Wishing You a Happy Weekend!
