I had ordered some Gladiolus for my Mother from the local Foodland Store yesterday. I made a stop there to pick them up, as I wanted to deliver them to her today. I thought I best be getting some, since they are her favourite, and when I look for Red, again her favourite, I can never get them when her Birthday rolls around in September. What a better time then now since they had them in the store.
I wish our pond and the trimming around the gardens and house was done, but for some reason we haven't been able to keep up with everything this Year as much as we had in past Years. Really I think I get less done, but feel like I am doing more all the time, or maybe just because I am slower then I used to be, or I now have other interests that take me outside the house that I had never had before? I really hate admitting this, but me getting slower has got to be the reason? or not I wish.
How is everyone doing with the "52 Week Money Challenge"? I have made it to Week 32, bringing me up to almost $500.00 saved. What on Earth will I ever do with the money when I get to Week 52? I am pretty sure it will go towards our Mortgage, as I have been striving my hardest to get that debt paid off as fast as I can. How nice for us when the day comes we own our home outright ! then do the extras we will hopefully be able to afford to do to it then, or maybe even sell and downsize to a more modest sized country home. Time will tell.
My "Crabby Cabbie" will be working this weekend, however our friends, Doug & Vicki, will be arriving for the weekend tomorrow. Rob, hopefully, will be off Sunday and Monday, and if the weather is nice enough we will be able to get out on our Motorcycles.
Only 7 pm with the Sun still shining. I LOVE the long days ... think I will take Lexus out for some fetching, then maybe take the puppy out for a run before everyone elses turn, then maybe think about calling it a day, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
