Hello my friends, I can only hope you are all enjoying the beautiful sunshine as I have been. The past few days have been unbelievably hot and I have loved every moment of it. Tonight I have all the ceiling fans going and hopefully Ron will stop over and install the air conditioner this weekend.
I am thinking it is getting close to hanging baskets time. I also want to pick up some herbs, tomato plants and of course my pansies. So looking forward to my lavender again this year. We still have the chance of getting frost so usually my neighbours wait until the second week of June before planting anything. The trees and the grass are such a pretty green right now. I imagine the cherry blossoms and lilac trees will bloom withing the next week or so, especially if our weather continues as it has been.
I have been waiting for the handy man to come over and replace a couple of boards on my deck and it needs to be painted as well. I would of liked this done before I put my deck furniture outside and before I placed my pots around but if he is not here by the weekend I am going to arrange the deck and when he shows up I will just move everything for him. Our summers are so short I want to enjoy each lovely day we have.
Below are pictures of my niece Cindy, her husband Vance and their two daughters Carly and Hannah. They are a beautiful family, gosh the girls are so good but what I noticed most was the kindness they showed each other. Cindy is my brother's youngest daughter.
These pictures were taken at Galaxieland in West Edmonton Mall. We spent a few hours at the Mall on Saturday. We did some shopping, had dinner, went to the fair and the girls went swimming at the Water Park.
I am serious when I say if you can't find what you want at WEM, then they don't make it. The Mall is huge and would take several days to see it all. Honestly it was wall to wall people......hard to understand how everyone is complaining about having no money yet everyone was shopping on Saturday.....they all seemed happy. It was a good day.
I have my great niece staying with me this weekend, she is 13 and absolutely cracks me up. We are going to a movie and have some shopping to do as well. Fallon is coming over on Saturday and I will drive her home on Monday as it is a long weekend here in Canada. I am so looking forward to having her stay a couple of days with me.
Have a great week everyone, God Bless.........and many, many hugs :-)
