Morning Has Broken

Yesterday morning I had left the house with Portia at 6:30 am before the heat came with the rising of the Sun.  We had walked down by Colpoy's Bay and the Wiarton Marina, with the sun on the rise and as you can tell below, morning has broken.

Which is your favourite of the three photos? I do love the Marina photo, but really do love all of them as they are "feeling good" photos, yes?

What made me laugh was the following sight; what made me want to cry is I only had my iphone deciding at the last moment not to carry my camera along (I regretted that decision).

I had the enjoyment of watching 5 otters scamper across the boardwalk along the front of where the boats were moored..  It was hilarious watching their antics.

Today had been a scorcher, however we found ways to try and cool down..

This evening I picked myself some "make me feel good" lilies from my unkempt gardens.

Two photos of things I love.  The clock I had purchased for $10. at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago, and the Boston Ferns hanging in our Gazebo out on the deck..

Other then getting our bedding washed, along with a load of darks afterwards, not too much other was accomplished this day.  Yikes ! I still have to make up our bed fresh, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Morning Has Broken

Morning have always been the best part of my days .... 

.... a nighthawk I am not too good of being, as I get up too early to last so long.  This morning I had been awake and up at 3:30 am.  Portia and I were out the door by 6:30 am for a walk, which had been perfect in every way.  I have walked well over 11,000 steps today.

Today Rob stained our side deck, and I painted the wooden planters.  That had been a big job in itself.  We had also paid for the flooring we have chosen for our bedroom.

After Dinner my girlfriend, Shannon and I head over to Sauble Beach for a swim.  It was WONDERFUL.  I have been back home in Bruce County for 12 years now, and that was the first I had been back swimming in Lake Huron..  Thanks Shannon it was much fun !

I am very tired, but will post some photos from today on tomorrow's post.  For now that is all she wrote, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Yucky Ewwwww

Today had been warm, however not too stifling.  Rob was busy pressure washing the lower deck in prep for Deckover, and waxing our car, to relax in the shade after my niece Joanne and I came back from downtown Wiarton shopping.

The beauty of our blooming Yucca, to a hot man cooling off and my silly niece fooling around..

Today there had been a putrid stench in the kitchen.  I looked over by the stove on the cupboard to find ...

... the watermelon had exploded ! and the smell was just way too nasty.  I took a photo and went back to Foodland.  I had my money refunded.

Shopping with my niece today I had picked up some Angel Cards.  I am looking forward to a daily reading.

Later this afternoon I headed over to my girlfriend, Shannon's moms  Much to my surprise...

Shannon had gotten me this beautiful Tea Pot planter, an her Mom had given me this Hurricane Lamp.  What sweethearts xoxoxox

I can barely see through my eyes, so off I go Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Spaced Out

Have you been so tired you actually feel spaced out?  I most certainly do more often then I care to admit.  Today was one of those days.

I forced myself to go for a walk at 7 am with our Buddy, and do a couple of loads of laundry.

Late this morning I headed to Owen Sound with a girlfriend, thanks Lynn, to go to Bulk Barn to get Pinatas and candy for the Masterson Family Reunion upcoming in August.  We also stopped in at Sears, as it was the last day to get 40% off on red tag sale prices if you used your Sears Card.

Lynn did awesome getting 3 tops, a skirt, 2 bras and a bathing suit cover up all for $70.00.  I got a $50.00 pr of Jeans for $12.00 and a $39.00 top for $6.00, along with a reg. camisole for a total of $30.00.  Needless to say we were both very happy shoppers !

Paul sent me photos of the boys from Saturday ...

Aiden & Connor had gotten to go to the job site with Daddy and sit in a piece of "fun" equipment.

I also received photos of Mrs.Paul Morelli this morning ...

... after she had worked 2 twelve hour night shifts.  Tonight is another one for her until she gets a couple of days off.  Poor girlie.

Rob & I are in the market for an Elliptical Trainer in EUC.  So if anyone has one they no longer need, at a reasonable price, please let me know.  Thanks in advance.

I am barely able to keep my peepers open, so off to bed I am going to take them, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Lots To Say

I am pretty certain I have lots to say, however I am way too tired to barely begin.  It has been another long day for both myself and Rob.

We just arrived home from an unhealthy meal at the Frosty Freeze downtown Wiarton.  I am far from used to eating french fries anymore, never mind poutine !  Rob the same, along with a Banquet Burger and a Root Beer Float.

I had been up early to make a cheese tray to go to my girlfriend for after her Father's Memorial Service and burial today, and bought a fruit tray to go along with it.

Rob and I headed on down to New Hamburg to drop some things off for the kids, then stopped at K&K Liquidation in Wellesley on the way back home.

We arrived back home at 6 pm..  Rob went his way on a call, while I headed over to help my Nephew get online to a form he wanted to fill out.  After 7 pm we had headed out for something to eat.

By the way how is everyone doing on the 52 Week Money Challenge.  Only 21 more weeks to go, and oh man that also means CHRISTMAS !!!  ewwwwwww not that soon.  I have so many things I want to spend the challenge money on, but can not decide.  What about you????

On that note, think I am going to call it an evening here, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

It has been a very busy day, and no surprise I am very tired, but then again so is Rob.  Two peas in a pod.  Rob has been busy working, and I have been busy helping out my girlfriend of many many years, Shannon.

Unfortunately Shannon's father fell sick over the winter months and passed on as a cause of complications.  She has been not only busy making arrangements for a graveside service which is taking place tomorrow, she has also been helping her Mom get her house in order as it sold a couple of weeks ago.

Yes if I have thought my life to be hectic at the time being, I must think again should I step into my friend's shoes.

I had my Doctor's appointment today.  I only have a small spot of arthritis in my right thumb, however my Fibro has been raging !!!  *Sigh* a life without pain must be like afloat on a bed of roses, would you think?  More tests in the near future I am certain.  I have certainly been through a battery of them since last year.

Tomorrow is another day with going forward, as we all well know time will not stop to wait while we stop to smell the roses, or rotten eggs for that matter, whichever life decides to dish out at us at the time.

Ha ! Rob's phone went down today, my Internet went down, and Shannon forgot to bring along some paperwork we dealt with today .... crazy 3's !!! never mind crazy 8's thank goodness.

She is whipped, so this is all she wrote, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
