Seagulls.......On A Bright Clear Sunny Day






Ahhhhhh...

Remember these days?

Before the rain started?

Before the leaves started to fall?

Before the air turned chilly?

This was only 3 weeks ago...

And I sincerely...

Hope...

To...

See this again...

Tomorrow...

And Saturday...

Are you all with me on this??








I am sure all of you are horrified at what took place in our country's capital city yesterday...

Frightening to say the least...

Makes me very scared for our children and grandchildren...

This world needs to change...

FAST...

OR we will destroy ourselves...

Take a moment to think of  
young Corporal Nathan Cirillo...

Who was murdered senselessly...

While serving this great country of ours... 

We have always flown our Canadian flag with great pride...

And will continue to do so for as long as we are on this earth...

Thinking of the families and friends of Cpl. Cirillo...

May they find peace♥️

                                             ************

          Hope you all had a great day...

               Sunny...breezy...cool here...

                      Going out for dinner...and to the cottage tomorrow...

                             Have a great weekend...

                                     Cheers!  :o)

Finally...Out For A Garden Update...


















I stole out to the garden yesterday...

Between rain drops...

Need to get my outdoor/indoor plants ready to come in...

Although...it is going to be warmer this weekend...

Sun is out today...but still pretty windy and nipply...

Miss V is napping , after a big lunch...

Guess where we are going after she wakes up???

Ha ha ha....she made me promise we would go out on her "bike"...

Oh........... the things we have to do, eh???

Hope you are all having a great day...

                     Cheers!  :o)

Cottage Weather.......


As we arrived...

I could see...

There were some leaves down...

And of course...that relentless wind...



 

Before even going inside...

I wanted to check out the new furnace!!!

Look at that beauty!!

All shiny and new...

In...

My boyfriends...

Pristene...

Clean...

Tidy...

Cottage basement!







You can see by the Lake...

Very unsettled weather...

We did get a few rays of sunshine...

BUt...

It was so toasty inside...

I was quite happy!

Didn't even change to my flipflops...






On Saturday...

My boyfriend cut the grass...

Best way to get rid of the first leaves...

I stripped the bed...

We got showered and cleaned up...

Headed home around 3:30...

Stopped in at our son's for a visit...
And later that night...

We were toasty and warm in our dining room at home...

Ahhhhh....what a life,eh??

                                     **************

Hope you all had a great day...

Made it to Fitness this morning...coffee with the girls...

We miss you Devon...it is just not the same♥️

And...I can hardly believe it...

On my 3 year blogaversary...

Natalie became my 100th follower!!

How cool is that?

Thanks everyone...for all your kind words...

Enjoy the rest of your day...

Same cheesy weather here...rain..damp...dark...dreary!


It won't get me down...I won't let it!!!

Think I'll scoop Miss V tomorrow...sunshine for sure!

                                Cheers!  :o)

And......Off We Go!











"No Worries Papa....I can put it back in the garage...see 'ya later bike!"



"Papa....did you see the pumpkins Nana got me at the store? A big one...and a small one...can I take one home? I will leave the other one here...ok?"

                                  ****************************

This was last Thursday on our trek around the school and up the walkway...and back home....Man she loves that bike!!!
We have pigtails back again...she will be getting a haircut soon...so...

 I thought I would indulge myself!

                                   **************************

Hope you are all having a great day...

Back to the dark...damp...dull...drippy weather....geesh!

We are promised above seasonal for the end of the week and the weekend...

Looking forward to that...for sure!!

Just wanted to mention something...

Today marks the day...3 years ago...that Woke Up...Got Out Of Bed...

Made its fabulous debut!!

I have come a long way, baby!!

It has been a very rewarding experience for me...

I have certainly enjoyed meeting all you lovely peeps...

Some I have gotten to know a bit better than others...

But I truly feel a kinship with you all...

I enjoy reading all of your posts...sharing your happiness...and the sadness...

Wonderful photographs...

Life eh?

Nice to have you all along on this part of the journey...

                     Cheers To You All... ♥️♥️♥️

Thrifty Update......




Happy Sunday to you...

Have purchased a few really nice Thrifty articles the last few weeks... 

This adorable little cardigan set was just $3...and I thought the colour on Miss V would be really nice....

Oh....

We did go to the cottage on Friday...

Blustery...

Damp...

Dark...

BUT...the best news!

THe furnace is up and running!!!

Warmed up the old place in no time at all!

My boyfriend got some more outdoor jobs taken care of...

While I did all the mirrors and gave it a good dusting...

Now.........back to the thrifty finds!!

 
 This adorable handknit pullover was a mere $2....so cute with some leggings...

The picture above came out kinda dark...and looks yellow...but believe me..it is pristene!


 This next one is a real favorite of Miss V's...She had outgrown her previous housecoat { I also got at a thrift shop}...It was more difficult to find one this time....this is probably a boy's housecoat...

But with the addition of some rick-rack from my stash of sewing what-nots...


I think it looks perfect!

And....Miss V loves the wee snowman...♥️

So..........for $2.79....it is utterly perfect!

Will fit her for the whole winter....and we love our housecoat after our bath...

Right Miss  V?

"Nana....whatever....I am watching Thomas the Tank Engine...we will talk later!"




Hope you all had a great weekend, so far...

Some sun today....but still windy and chilly...

I put a few plants in the garage last night...just in case some frost hit them...

Don't think we got any frost...but wanted to save my geraniums♥️

I have Beef Stew simmering...

Boyfriend picked up some crusty bread...That's Dinner!!!

I have all the ingredients ready to make an Apple Pie Bread...it has been 4ever since I made one of those...and it is so darn delicious!!!

Enjoy the rest of your day...

What's cookin' in your kitchen?

                                       Cheers!   :o)
