Today my neck is giving me grief, as it has been all week, however I am sure the drive to Barrie and back the other day, added to it feeling the way it is, as well as, once again, not pacing myself. Dang, dang and triple dang, it is so hard not to live life the way I desire to at times in the physical aspect of things, as I am sure I will never have to worry about winning a Lottery in my lifetime to worry about how I would spend "all that money", in respect of finances ! LOL .... never any fear of that happening.
This morning I spent doing the usual chores that always need doing in and around the house, with many many more still needing done. My "Crabby Cabbie" arose just before 11:00 am. Once he got himself to a more awaken state and a coffee into him, he busied himself with bringing some wood up from the basement to replenish our upstairs supply.
Rob had been hankering for a grilled cheese sandwich, so Dinner was made easy for me, as I just took a container of Big Batch Chicken Soup from out of the freezer to thaw and heat, and whipped up a couple of sandwiches to go along with it.
Rob was going into work a couple of hours earlier today, and I was heading downtown to attend a "High Tea" being held at the Salvation Army's hall, with my friend, Sharon, my Auntie Gladys and her friend, Liz for 2:00 pm..
Since a "little birdie" had told me it gets very busy at these annual High Teas, I thought it best to be getting there early to save a table for the five of us. I left the house at 1:30, arriving down there before 1:45, to save seats all of us. I am certainly glad I did, as boy oh boy did things get real busy in a hurry not too much longer after I had arrived.
What a sad moment I found this to be, with tears in my eyes, as it is Roots that had been established with this woman for all these years now coming to an end. I found this to be sad. It would be so nice if someone comes forward to pick up the torch and carry on the tradition of "Wiarton Willie's Fancy Tea".
All proceeds from the donations received at this Tea goes to charities such as the Breakfast for Children provided mornings at the local school, as well as a couple other charities I believe. With a full house, I am sure hope the donations covered everything needing to be covered with lots left over for the charities. Special thanks were also made to the people and/or businesses who donated or sponsored "Wiarton Willie's Fancy Tea".
We had a wonderful time at the "Wiarton Willie's Fancy Tea", as I am sure everyone in attendance had also.
One of the speakers had referred to the old saying, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", well something must have "cracked one of those tea cups". Hopefully someone will come forward to carry on with the fantastic job Mary has been doing the past 15 years, and it will continue on again next year with that "crack being mended" ......
My Auntie said she had to park close up beside a snow bank, almost falling when she had gotten out of her vehicle. When her and Liz left, Sharon and I walked them out to her vehicle so I could make sure she got in alright.
I am telling you, I am can't say enough how Blessed I am with family and friends, and how much I appreciate both, as there are so many people out there in this World who have neither.
*Sigh* I so enjoyed going out for "High Tea", or as it was "Wiarton Willie's Fancy Tea". I am pretty sure I got back home here just after 4:00 pm, once I had dropped Sharon back off to her house. I have been invited by Sharon to go along down to the Tent tonight to take in one of the Bands. I think I might. I am pretty tired now, but what the heck, I really don't feel like doing too much of anything else now in the way of household chores, so why not? In the 8 years we have lived in Wiarton, I have never been to any Wiarton Willie Festivities, so maybe it is a good thing I am getting to check some of them out now.
I do have a few little things I can get do before I head back out for some more entertainment later, so I best call this a wrap and get 'r done, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
