Photo Shoot!

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Last night, my daughter did a photo shoot for me! Can't figure out how to add the photo to my photos section anymore, so I'm just going to add 2 photos here. Why 2? Because I love them both and can't decide which one I like most!!

I'm so proud of my DD - she is a lovely young woman who is working hard to develop her photography business (9 weddings this summer)!

Blessings of joy, peace & light to all of you!

finally doing better

Sunday, April 27, 2014

Been down and out with a nasty bug for nearly 2 weeks. Finally starting to get some energy back ... even did a full T'ai chi Chih practice yesterday. Turned the corner when a friend suggested a mustard plaster... was too sick to think about that.

DH goes back to the city tomorrow; I'll be staying home... plan is to do some spring cleaning at the farm house...long overdue. Hope I feel up to it though.

Have lost all the conditioning I'd done to get my legs feeling better..starting over again now that I have some energy. Ah well.. life happens, time to move forward!

Happy Sunday, folks!

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow!

Monday, April 14, 2014

Yesterday, we held our Celebration of Life for Mom. A lovely afternoon ... I could see her there smiling, chatting with others and singing along with us as we sang three of her favourite songs! Miss you Mom, but we know you're in our hearts and we carry on!

Today and tomorrow, I'll be tidying and dusting the condo and running errands. Also, tomorrow afternoon (weather permitting) I'll be out at mom and dad's property as we found someone to take dad's rug loom! Hurray! So great that it's going to someone who'll use it!!

I've been doing the full T'ai Chi Chih practice daily for nearly 3 weeks now. If I have time, it's nice to do it first thing in the morning.. gets the stiffness worked out of my joints, but any time of day is a good time to do it, right? My back and legs have been giving me grief for 2 weeks (caused by the sweeping of the water to the sump pump in M&D's basement), but I have continued to health bounce on the rebounder (full rebounding would be just too painful). Despite the pain, the legs are getting better and as an added plus, my body is gradually toning up too!!

Well, time to sign off and get busy with things here! Happy Monday, folks, and have a great week!

Some challenges with spring runoff at my parents' home this week. My sisters and I hope they are all taken care of now as no one can be there over the weekend. We started clearing the basement of it's junk and treasures the last time we were there. We'll meet there again on Monday, but most if not all of the time there will be spent preparing for my mom's celebration of life / memorial on the 13th of April.

Other than that, been keeping bookkeeping caught up and I find myself watching tv shows a lot this past month or so. I finished watching 'The Guardian' (loved that show) and I've discovered I can watch my favourite HGTV shows online ... So... Til Debt do us Part, Income Property and For Rent are the 3 shows I've chosen to watch. As if I'm not getting enough of the DIY projects LOL!

Leaving early today (just before noon) to head home for the weekend as DH has a meeting to attend along the way home. I have a good book to read though, so I shan't be bored while I wait for him!

Today is my daughter's birthday! We plan on taking her and her boyfriend out for supper tonight.

Have an awesome weekend, everyone!

Feeling Euphoric!

Thursday, March 27, 2014

My sisters and I have finished clearing all the rooms at my parents' home. We've hauled out recyclables, garbage and many boxes and bags to goodwill. The home and property went up for sale yesterday! There have been 2 agent showings already, and another one on Sunday morning has been booked!
There is still much to do: large basement and a 2 storey shed to clear, and we need to go through the valuables that are left in the house and see that things go where they are desired. But it just feels so GOOD to think we are finally at this point that I just want to celebrate this milestone first. We 3 meet at the house next Monday to carry on.

I went to the chiropractor right after we were done at the house today. He has been so VERY helpful to me as I struggle through all this extra physical work.

Now it's time for an epsom salts bath with lavender. Ahhhhhh!

    What a huge job!
We did the same after my MIL passed and we moved my FIL - trips after trips...
They were depression babes and loved to 'shop' @ the Salvation Army and Goodwill - was wonderful for me. I came home and cleaned out 'stuff' we accumulated.
Glad you have your chiro and bath salts!

    Two years ago I spent a week shredding all my grandparents old documents, 5 straight days, 6 hours a day, shredding. I realized that I can't ever do that to my kids, so I plan on limiting my saved documents to one small file cabinet. Good Luck to you and your sibs, hope it sells fast. Ours did.
