Wow this Life Secret & Tip for today, is almost like Yesterday can not be changed, so go ahead into the day with the gift of the Present with no worry to what will happen tomorrow in the Future. Which brings me to a "list" a very wonderful acquaintance of mine posted just the other day:"What a wonderful list to try and live by on a daily basis ! I think I pretty much have this list covered by myself with the exception of "write a note and mail it". The "play a game" I wondered about, but with Bandit, Lexus & Mercedes, there is always some of that going on."This list is a personal list of Cindy Ratzlaff, co-author of the book, "Queen of Your Own Life" Grown-up Woman's Guide to Claiming Happiness and Getting the Life You Deserve".This is an excerpt from Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff's "Queen of Your Own Life" website:
Welcome to the Rest of Your Life!Anyone wanting to take the Queen Cindy and Queen Kathy up on their invitation may do so by dropping in on the Queen of Your Own Life website at: http://www.queenofyoyurownlife.com/or also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter. I love following Cindy & Kathy on my Twitter Account, as they inspire me and put all kinds of wonderful thoughts for the day in my head.Rob and I had to make "another" trip into Owen Sound yesterday, as a part for his "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle we had picked up the day before, was not the right one. *Sigh* (something I find myself doing a lot most days, lol). After I had finished doing the November "books" for the "Crabby Cabbie", and making a business call on behalf of the "Crabby Cabbie", the "Crabby Cabbie", himself, loaded all us gals, Lexus, Mercedes and I into the "family" vehicle, and we headed on over to the big City of Owen Sound.We first had to stop at the mechanics to pickup the vehicle part from our mechanic, which hadn't worked out in the first place. This is where I just happened upon this guy ...."I was relieved he was perched where he was and not flying around doing business on my head. He is pretty "proud" looking though, or so I thought as long as he kept his business to himself."
We did eventually arrive in Owen Sound, where we also did a bit more shopping then we probably should have. Mercedes did get a brand new "pink" collar, I got a new tempered glass cutting board to replace the one I shattered a bit ago, and we also picked up a couple of Christmas gifts for the "pack"."I had my hand on the book "The Help", but could not justify the discounted price of $12.95 Walmart was offering it for. Although what a nice "Christmas" gift this book would also make for that "special" someone who loves to read."Upon speaking to my cousin, Suzanne, later this same day, I discovered she had a copy of this book and I can borrow it when her daughter is through reading it. I am so happy and look at the money I saved ! Thanks Suz ..... I also learned from Suzanne this was also the Author, Kathryn Stockett's first published book.Good job as it has already made it to the "Big Screen" at the movies, and will be out on DVD in January 2012.I can't wait until I am able to read the book and watch the movie on DVD !By the time we arrived back home it was dark. We got what we had purchased put away, along with the "pack" all having a run, before I got a simple supper of Homefries, Bacon, Scrambled Eggs and Toast together for Rob and I. We don't eat a breakfast like this ever on the weekend mornings, so we enjoy having it occasionally as one of our main meals. I shouldn't say, "simple", as I really didn't find having to wash two frying pans to be that simple. What is so simple about washing pots and pans? Bring back the Summertime BBQ weather !!!Along with so much controversy going on about keeping Christ in Christmas, there is also much going lately about keeping Muslim prayers out of Canadian public schools. If we can NOT have Christian prayers in our schools, why would we allow Muslim prayers? You may voice your own opinion on this matter by exercising your VOTE at the Toronto CITY TV website link as follows:http://www.citytv.com/toronto/citynews/news/local/article/144877--groups-protest-muslim-prayers-at-toronto-public-schoolI am NOT prejudice, and/or it is not my intent to offend anyone, however I believe Christian prayer should have remained in OUR Canadian schools. I am beginning to wonder what the next thing will be that we, as Canadians, will have to fight for? maybe to NOT have our Canadian Flag changed???? I should hope NOT ! Should Canadians NOT be practicing Canadian ways, should one profess to be a Canadian .... for which Canadian traits have been in place for many many years.This was pretty much the adventure I had in my yesterday, other then having a bit of fun interacting with some Exchange Members in my Facebook group, "Cindy's Recipe Exchange", after supper. What a lovely bunch that have joined together there, with sharing, helping and a little kibitzing going on here and there at any given time. It is a pleasure having such a "fun loving bunch". There has been lots of comments going on about a certain Apricot Cheesecake photo/recipe posted on "Cindy's Recipe Exchange" the other day. This is the recipe to be recognized this month of November as being the "Recipe of the Month". Many thanks to Exchange member, Marjorie, who posted the recipe, along with the photo of her cake.
