Hello my friends, I really, really hope wherever you are reading this from that you are enjoying sunshine and warm weather. My little corner of the planet is freezing. I think we have made Mother Nature mad at us, so now she is getting even. They are calling for frost again tonight, we did escape it last night so I am keeping my fingers crossed again, my poor flowers and tomato plants have been battling the elements for two days now.
I set my alarm to get up early this morning as I wanted to watch the Women's final at the French Open. It started at 7am so I was up at 6:30 to take my insulin and have my breakfast before it started. By the time it came on I had a fire going in my fireplace, drinking a cup of coffee, feeling so cozy and I know this is not a nice thing to say but it was a horrible match. I felt so sorry for Safrina who completely lost control of her nerves. I think even I could of beat the number one seed today. Oh well, I get to do it all over again tomorrow to watch the men play. Looking forward to a better game.
It wasn't a complete waste of time really as I did 20 minutes of exercise on my gazelle then spent time on my computer which I normally don't do during the mornings.
Curves is only open on Saturday until noon and closed on Sunday's. It was raining and cold so thought it best to stay home, but not for very long as it turned out.
My friend called and we decided to go shopping this afternoon in St. Albert. Every where we went people were grumbling and complaining about the weather. They were to say the least cranky. I made a silent promise to myself not to complain anymore about our weather, it doesn't do anyone any good and I didn't enjoy seeing or hearing how miserable everyone was. It's strange how we let the weather decide if we are going to be happy or if we are to have a nice day....Way to much power to give away to the weather my friends, I know I will tell you about the kind of weather we are having, but you all have my permission too tell me to be quiet if I start complaining instead of sharing OK. (I wonder if I can keep the promise to myself)LOL
I picked up a couple of Christmas gifts when I was out, The Gap had a sale on and I have a couple of little ones I buy for each year. I have put them in gift bags and wrote the tags, they are tucked away in my gift cupboard. This is early even for me but I usually do start in September. I am not a fan of the last minute rush.
We went out for supper and I had the most delicious salmon dinner with brown rice. Oh it was good and so were the steamed mixed vegetables. I worked too hard last week to loose 2 lbs., so stayed within my available calories. I enjoyed the meal and conversation with my friend, it helped to make a lovely day even better.
This evening I watched the hockey game and finished my novel. Now I have just had my lavender bubble bath and am tucked in for the night. I am looking forward to church tomorrow at noon service as the little children are receiving their first communion.
It is so special to me to watch their little faces in awe and see them so excited, dressed in their finest clothes. I always enjoy this day every year. It will be fun.
Am off to read my favorite blogs and comments.....Have a great Sunday my friends.
Good Night and God Bless......:-) Hugs
