Santa's Helpers

Up and at it early this morning.  Aussies looked after, bed stripped and in the washer, then out the door by 8:30 am ....

... to pick up a Santa Claus Parade Committee friend to head over to Owen Sound's Bulk Barn.  We had a great time at the Bulk Barn.  The store manager was totally amazing as the staff, and the selection was SWEET !!!  We were getting candy for the Santa Claus Treat Bags to hand out after the parade for those kiddies who go see Santa Claus.

We not only had fun picking out 200 pieces of each candy treat, we were amazed at how many people we knew at Bulk Barn on a Saturday morning who were from Wiarton !!  Guess Tis in the Season ????

Check out ALL of the Candy we got !!!  The manager even gave us a box of spice bags "no charge".  Thank you Owen Sound Bulk Barn & Staff, the experience was beyond SWEET.

By the time we had left, and returned, it had taken us 2 1/2 hours to complete our mission.  This time did not include me going down to the Chamber Office and unloading all the bags of sweetness.

We will get back together Tuesday to make up the individual bags.  We got a really nice variety of candies, and I think whoever gets themselves a bag should be quite happy.

More behind the scenes of an Event that people don't ever realize what happens or how much time even the smallest events can sometimes take.  You can well imagine how much time goes on behind the scenes in preparing for the Wiarton Willie Festival, or the Pumpkinfest in Port Elgin, year after year.  All thanks to VOLUNTEERS, who are the backbone of many of a Community.

When I did finally get back home I managed to get the Kitchen and Hallway floors washed, and the bed made up, oh yes and the dishes done up that had been in the sink.  There is still way LOTS more to be done in the vicious circle of housework.

I was very weary this afternoon, recalling my Doctor reminding me this past Wednesday that I am to pace myself.  Like anything else, much easier said then done at times.

Tomorrow will be another day, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. That's a very busy day, and more to come. You must listen to your doctor!

  2. Bulk Barn- I love a name like that. No messing about you know what you are getting. Remember to listen to your doctor and your body. Sometimes the day takes us over and before we know it we end the day in a heap. Well done for all the hard work though : )


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.
