Hello my friends, I do hope you all had a wonderful day. I was a bit sore and stiff this morning after moving all my furniture and cleaning yesterday so after my shower I started my morning with my favorite coffee in my favorite coffee cup. It's just a little porcelain cup with sheep on it that I bought when I was in Ireland last year. My coffee doesn't taste nearly as good in any other cup.....honest! I had my Raisin Bran Cereal and a yogurt for breakfast.
For lunch I had a slice of pizza and some cherries for dessert, no snacks between breakfast and lunch today villagers. It was too hot and I was too busy doing my laundry and ironing.
Now for supper I had a roasted chicken breast with cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, tomatoes from my garden and cucumbers from the grocers. I also drank several bottles of water today and a glass of ginger ale. Now I don't mean to be rude but I am not going to post my meals anymore as I have had mixed feelings about doing this..... Sorry villagers, I tried but I am not enjoying doing this, now altogether say......Boooooooo Bernie!
What a beautiful day today in Alberta....actually we set a record for the hottest day on September 3 ever.....it was 33C and very humid. I had all my ceiling fans going as well as my A/C. It was a different story tonight though, we had a massive thunder/lightening storm and it absolutely poured down rain, now the storm has passed but it is still raining. It is suppose to start cooling down tomorrow and continue to keep getting cooler from now on. I think our hottest day of the year, today, will also be our last day of summer. Our early mornings and evenings have been cool for a while now, so it was only a matter of time before the days caught up.
After lunch, Charlene came in to measure my new door and living room windows for curtains. She had so many beautiful samples with her and it was fun choosing colors and designs. I gave her 3 of my favorite choices and she went back to her shop to put them together in picture form, figure out how much fabric I would need, cost and availability of rods and to figure out the quotes on each design. She is going to e-mail everything to me so I can see how they will look and how much it will cost before I make a final decision. If I give her the go ahead by Monday, they will be made and hung up by mid October. They are very busy doing show houses just now so that is the earliest date she can have everything completed. I am excited about having them done and giving the rooms an updated and fresh look.
If it's not too expensive I may have slip covers made for my couch and chair. I always like to change my colors for the seasons so this is a fun project.
I can't believe I turned the oven on to bake a chicken today but I spent most of my day in the basement where it was cooler. I watched the US Tennis Open most of the day as I did my ironing, sorted boxes in my crawl space, did a bit of reading and even found time for a nap. All in all it was a good day though I moved around quite slowly due to my arthritis. Tomorrow I am going to do a bit of shopping, banking and meeting a friend at Tim's for coffee. I am going to have a relaxing weekend and begin more cleaning and my regular exercise routine on Monday.
I think I only need 3 more days and my Fall cleaning will be finished.....Yay!
I hope your day was filled with good things and many blessings,....until tomorrow, Good Night my friends and God Bless ......many, many hugs:-)
