Up & At It

I really didn't have the greatest sleep last night, especially since I have been sleeping better lately.  I was wide awake at 5 am, then got up well before 6 am.  Yes I was up & at it today.

Today was the first day in a long while that I retained my pockets of energy all day long.  That was a pretty nice feeling let me "Tell the World".

First off I got 2 loads of laundry washed and hung out on the line, then I got onto cleaning the hallway closet.

Yes the floor in the closet was a mess, and the bins of dog food had been long over due to get out of our kitchen.  Yes everything fit in all rather nicely leaving still enough room for the vacuum cleaner!  Hooray !!

I also had made a trip over to Owen Sound early this morning.  I had stopped into No Frills as they had Chapman's Frozen Yogurt on for $2.97 a 2 l., as it costs us $5.99 otherwise at our local store here.  I also was so very happy the 10" potted annual hangers were only $6.97 each, regular anywhere from $9.99 to $12.99 anywhere else.  I got 6 hangers to go around.  

I had also got 2 ferny type plants with small pink flowers so I could do up this plant stand.  Haven't quite made up my mind which side I like the bears on yet.  Opinions welcome.

While I had been busy doing lots of vacuuming and cleaning, Rob was busy working at getting our deck ready.

He had put plywood down for flooring so mosquitoes would not come up through the decking, which he got to staining once the day dried up after the Sun came out.  We lucked in on a galleon of stain, as it had been a mistint at $10.00.  Bonus !  Once the stain dried he got the indoor/outdoor carpet put down, just setting the furniture around for the time being.

Rob also made us a wonderful Dinner again tonight.  I LOVE BBQ season as Rob enjoys cooking most of it.  He has been getting quite famous in my books for his Potato Salad, and his chicken is always crispy on the outside and nice an moist on the inside.

After Dinner Rob put up some of the screening.  Here is one of my $6.97 plants I put into the basket today, as my Bear looked on .... love my Bear.

My son, Paul, is Best Man for his long time childhood friend, Blake, on his Wedding day in August, and Blake is Paul's Best Man for his upcoming Wedding in July.  Tonight is Blake and Jenn's Stag & Doe tonight.  The Theme for the evening is the 80's.

Here is Liz & Paul just before heading off to the party.  Hahaha got to love Paul's "mullet", and his T-Shirt, "Team Groom".  We had bought tickets but couldn't get back down to New Hamburg this weekend.

Look at me go today ! doing 6318 steps without even going out for a walk.  Almost just like the "good old days".  I sure would love it would last like this forever for me, but I will take all the energy anytime that comes my way, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. I love that bear, always have. I am glad you had a good day. Here's hoping Sunday is as good, though the weather is going to be iffy today.

  2. I like the bears on either side but on the right side they seem to be enjoying/seeing the plant.

  3. Your deck is very nice.

  4. Your bear statue looks like a character.

    I think the little bears on the right works best.

  5. Bears on the right. They get to enjoy the plant as well as the book.


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
