Hello my friends, I hope you all had a wonderful day, I had so much fun but I'm afraid the diet went by the wayside.....Oh well back on it tomorrow. We had the most beautiful weather today, sunny and warm.
When I awoke this morning I noticed it had rained sometime through the night as the driveway had deep puddles throughout, I reached for my paper I and couldn't help but deep breath the air as it had a beautiful fresh clean smell and of course I could smell the flowers, they looked so beautiful after the rain and now were enjoying the sunshine.... perfection!
After breakfast I dressed and went to Curves then came home to sit on the deck with my Tim's coffee waiting for my friend Terry. She wasn't long and it was so good to see her. I enjoyed my coffee as she grabbed bottled water from the fridge and relaxed after her 2 and a half hour drive. She loved my flowers and couldn't believe how everything had grown especially the hanging baskets.
We then left to go into the city as she had to pick up some parts for her husband and also wanted to buy a few things for the grandchildren. Now this lady has everything imaginable for these kids from cribs, car seats, highchairs, swings,and playpens there is absolutely nothing her daughter needs to bring when she visits her mother, not even diapers, I am serious she only has to bring the kids. I enjoy watching my friends face light up as she speaks about the kids visit. Her kids and her grandchildren are her life. This weekend is Father's day so their 3 children and their spouses will be home. Terry's husband, Rick, and the boys are all going golfing on Saturday, and Terry has all the meals planned, every breakfast and each supper. She is the most organized person I know, and I know they will all have a wonderful time together. They play many board games during the evenings and everyone will enjoy the only 2 grandchildren. Terry has one son and one daughter who has yet to start a family of their own so all attention goes to beautiful Sierra and Brody. They are such a beautiful family and I am blessed to have them in my life.
Terry leaves at eleven tomorrow morning for the airport, it is a 2 hour drive from Morinville. Danielle is picking me up at 1 o'clock to attend our favorite patients funeral. I am going to try to go to Cures when Terry leaves and make it home to shower and be ready when Danielle arrives. I should be okay, as I can complete my work out in half an hour.
Terry and I went to East Side Mario's for dinner and it was so good. We had garlic shrimp for an appetizer, and Cesar Salad with a toasted chicken sandwich on a different kind of bread. I am not sure what the name of it was but it was so delicious. I didn't have dessert but I did have a bite (or 2) of Terry's, it was so good I can still feel the melting ice cream and whip cream in my mouth. Like I really needed that eh! They weigh me again on Thursday, wish me luck though I really don't deserve it. I knew better but felt it was okay to celebrate "the joy of food". It's okay I will work it off, it will take just an extra couple of days.
We called our best friend Annie in Nova Scotia tonight. I will see her next month when I am home, and she is coming here the first of October. We are travelling to Terry's to celebrate her birthday. It should be lots of fun as Terry has many brothers and sisters coming from NB. and there are 4 of us "old school friends" who will sleep in their 5th wheel and just keep the party going. Now I am not boasting but we have been known to put together pretty keen skits by time.
I bought new sneakers today to wear at Curves. They don't like us to wear anything off the street into the gym area and I don't blame them. Anyway I was able to get a pair of Nike's for $50. I will just keep them in the car and carry them in with me and change there.
Terry is in the guest room reading as I am typing on the computer. We are talking back and forth to each other but I can tell she is getting sleepy and it won't be long before she is off to dreamland. I don't think I will long following her as I have had a busy day as well.
All in all a wonderful day my friends and I am so thankful to have shared it with one of my best friend's in the world. Thank you Terry, you are one of my many blessings.
Am off to read my favorite blogs and comments........Good Night and God Bless
