Aren't They Beautiful
I do hope you had a wonderful Easter - oh I had such a wonderful weekend. The doorbell rang Saturday afternoon and to my complete surprise I received these beautiful roses from a very special friend. I don't think I have every received white roses before and they are so lovely. I should take another picture today as they have bloomed so full and are ever so pretty.
Saturday was spent with friends, shopping, having a BBQ and fun around an outside fire pit during the evening. Sunday began with going to Mass, out for breakfast with a close friend and then later that afternoon I went with a dear friend to her daughters for Easter dinner. She served my favorite meal, Turkey with all the trimmings and of course I had to push it and have dessert. It was just a perfect day.
Our weather has been so beautiful, not as nice as where some of you live but for Alberta it was absolutely gorgeous. +20C one day and I was able to clean my tiny back yard and prepare my flower pots for planting. I need to replace a couple of 2 x 4's on my deck and then it needs to be painted, well I'm sure I can do the painting but I will have to hire someone to replace the boards.
My neighbour Ron brought me over a swing for my deck and when he was coming through the gate he bent down and picked up my long lost keys. I was so happy to get that Harrods key chain back, the keys are not much good as most of the locks have already been replaced. I just couldn't believe how they were just lying there when I had looked in that same spot at least a hundred times. Unbelievable.....
We are having another lovely day today, I have already been outside playing in the dirt.....and I am really looking forward to planting my flowers this year. I also want to get a couple of more bird houses and if I can find the room for it I would love to provide a bird bath for my wonderful visitors. I love my townhouse condo but if it has a drawback it would be I don't have much front lawn or back yard.
Ivy the little girl that comes in and cleans for me every 3 weeks is upstairs cleaning and I am taking a break from washing flower pots......She is coming down for a cold drink in a few minutes. I also have an appointment in a couple of hours so I will need to shower and dress up for that. Ahhhh life is so good especially right now my friends.
I just finished watching Tiger's interview, it is good to see him coming back to golf. It is even better hearing him taking responsibility for his actions. I believe him. He loves his wife, children and mother.....he knows he has made mistakes and he refuses to blame anyone other than himself. I have to say for me that makes me hope for him even more.....I want him to be successful and I want him and his family to be happy and healthy. Personally I think it is so much more important to have peace of mind and heart, knowing contentment and being loved and respected by your family and friends than winning any kind of tournament or being famous. I think Tiger will find it is much easier taking a step up the ladder than taking a step down that same ladder. Good Luck Tiger and may you always follow the path you are following now and your journey be one of peace and love.
Springtime is such a wonderful time, this week the baseball season has started, one of my favorite golf tournaments, The Master's is happening but the best part is my friend Terry will be home soon from wintering down south.......we have so much to catch up on, can't wait.
Have a great week everyone, God Bless......many, many hugs....:-)
