Hello everyone, did you all have a good day? It was sunny, windy but warm. Still not real hot here, just pleasant and great weather for a BBQ.
What a day I had today. I am totally exhausted but very happy. My friends arrived around 2 this afternoon. There were five of us and everyone brought their own meat, whatever they were drinking and another dish. The food was delicious, I enjoy eating what other people make. Between us there were 8 salads, cabbage rolls and baked potatoes....rolls, pickles and coleslaw. It was delicious. One of the girls brought rhubarb/strawberry pie and it looked wonderful but I was too full to have a piece. It was so much fun as we laughed and chatted the afternoon away.
After supper, 2 of my neighbours stopped in and joined us for tea/coffee. It was still warm enough to enjoy the deck and we all commented on the absence of mosquitoes and midgets this year. I'm sure they are coming yet, but usually by this time of year the advanced party is here. None of us were complaining though.
Around 8 o'clock we put lawn chairs in one of the girls car (trunk) and went to the Town Center where the Fireworks were starting at 10. We just left the chairs in the trunk and took a walk around town. Morinville is small, one street light, one Main Street and approximately 12,000 people. We toured Main Street and then walked through neighborhoods admiring and taking pictures of plants, flowers and gardens. Some of them were so beautiful and we are late this year so many trees and shrubs are just coming into full bloom. We stopped at this little stand for ice cream and sat on town benches to enjoy them. (Mine was Maple Walnut and what a treat it was)
Just before 10 we got our chairs and placed them in a lovely spot where we could view the Fireworks. The town outdid themselves this year as for half an hour we as well as others oohed and awed throughout the show. The colors and patterns were almost breathtaking, and just like the children we loved it. We all took pictures of the sunset as well as the Fireworks.
We came back home and the girls came in to get their dishes and sweaters before saying Good Night, we all knew we had shared a wonderful day. After they left I cleaned up the deck and put the dishwasher through. I dragged my feet up to bed, it must of been the fresh air but I was so very tired. When I climbed into bed with my laptop I realized I left my camera downstairs and went down to get it but couldn't find it. I have looked everywhere, it must be in Linda's car. It was after midnight so I didn't want to call her but I will in the morning.
I don't know why but as I started answering my e-mails I woke up....I wasn't tired at all. So I did my e-mails, paid my bills and caught up on Face Book before I headed to my blog. I then dozed off with the TV on, night table light on and the computer on my lap....only me eh! I am now wide awake writing my blog. Oh well I will sleep in, in the morning as my appointment isn't until 1 o'clock, I will leave here around noon as I want to go to Curves first. I did 20 minutes on my glider this morning as Curves was closed today.
Will post pictures soon, I promise Marcy. I took some of my tomato plants and I'll show you all how my glads are coming through. It will be a while before they blossom for sure but it's okay as we saw some tonight and they weren't as far out of the ground as mine are. As I said earlier our growing season is quite late this year.
I am off to read blogs and comments, as always my friends..... Good Night and God Bless...:-) Hugs
