Happy Friday to you!!

1. I found some great natural deodorant!! Hand made from LUSH!
You can Powder or a Bar of it.

2. We had one day of steady hard rain...when I went out of the Condo for a walk when the rain stopped....this is what the parking lot looked like!

3. The wading pools at the Parliament buildings where all opened this week...

4. Did you know that whole canned tomatoes are held to a higher standard in the canning process...diced tomatoes are basically left over pieces and parts...

5. The High Level Bridge celebrated it's 100th Birthday this spring!

Quilt.... final step...

I had a pattern for my quilt...and was worried about the border.
I had made the quilt one row bigger so I was not sure if I could get the border to fit properly...but it worked out fine..
One last thing to do...is the quilting...
I am going to hand quilt it and went with a hoop instead of a quilting frame...
then I can quilt when and where ever!
 It's been taking me about an hour a square to quilt... won't take to long..................

Miscellany Monday

Happy Monday Morning to you!!
I have been enjoying my city walks... 
I love that we live downtown and I can go for walks...
And leave the busyness of the city and find peace and quiet
in a country setting just down a path ....in the middle of the city.
These walks are my favourite time of the day..
This weekend Grandson 4 did a 10KM run in the city with his younger cousin...
it was a beautiful day to be out to watch a run...
Some take running very serious!!

Grandson 3 celebrated his birthday this weekend..
14 years of birthdays!!

Those of you in Canada would know about the flooding in our province...
but for those of you who live South of us... 
The southern part of our province has had devastating floods...
Here is a picture of the City of Calgary downtown....
picture off the internet
 A number of cities and towns have had been hit hard with flood waters!
I believe it's a reminder...that we are not in control...
It makes you stop and think...what is important....

Hope you all enjoy the first week of summer!.
The above picture is another one of my Granddaughter 2 pictures...
Watch for another post of her pictures this week!

Randon 5 Friday

Another week gone by...Joining Nancy at

1.  The weather has been up and down.... rainy, windy, sunny....The south part of our province has had an abundance of rain and the rivers are overflowing!!


2. I have t-shirts that get holes in the front of them.... for no reason? I would like to know what causes this??

3, Had my eyes checked this week... I know eye health is VERY important...but sometimes I think when the prescription changes just a little...it's a money racket to get new glasses if your old ones are working fine.


4. It has been 9 months since I have ran...started running again and it feels so good to be at it again!

5.Today is the longest day this year...The sun rose this morning at 5:04 AM...will set at 10:07 PM...tomorrow it won't rise until 5:05 AM...the days will start getting shorter....So I'm going to enjoy TODAY!

Happy weekend!!
