Yesterday looked like the day was going to be rainy and then the sun decided to make an appearance, but with less of a vengeance that it has been. It was a beautiful sunny day, more normal temps for us and a lovely breeze to go hand in hand with it.
Garry and I both slept in (for us) yesterday and once we were up and about, we headed out to the city to see if we could find me a rain jacket for our up coming trip. We ended up at Wholesale sports and I could a really good deal on one....60% off! Very pleased with my jacket as it has a great hood with a visor on it that will help to keep rain drops off my glasses and lots of pockets for my camera etc. Once we had wandered the store and picked up a couple of other items we headed out to Tony Roma's for some lunch. I had a very good Caesar salad and Garry had his fish and chips. Headed back home to go to Costco to pick up a few items and over to the new Petsmart store that was having it's grand opening here in Sherwood Park. Picked up some new food for Kistmet. I love buying things there because if for some reason the pets don't like the food or item you have purchased, as long as you have the receipt and you haven't used up more than a bit of the item, you can take it back and exchange it for something different. With a very finicky eater....this works great.
Garry got called into work for a client about 5pm, but the girls stopped over for the evening so I had company and when Garry called and I told him the girls were here, he was able to get home quickly too. We had a great evening sitting out on our front deck and visiting and waving at neighbors as they passed by.
A great day.
I am grateful for Garry being off work yesterday so we could spend the day together.
I am grateful for the person that told us about checking out Wholesale sports as I was able to get a fantastic buy on my raincoat.
I am grateful for our new Petsmart store opening in the Park, now I don't need to drive into the city.
I am grateful for being able to have lunch with my hubby allowing us time to chat.
I am grateful for the lovely sunny day with more normal temps and much less humidity. So much easier on the body.
I am grateful for finding some colored glow sticks to take with us on holiday, they will be so much fun to light for around the campfire at night.
I am grateful for our new front deck to enable us to get to know our neighbors as they pass by our house.
I am grateful for Quin texting us and letting us know that he and Sage arrived safely in Ft. McMurray. Technology is so wonderful.
I am grateful for our girls wanting to spend time with us as they are wonderful people to know.
I am grateful for a new day to be alive and the untold opportunities and positives that are in store for us this day.
Have a wonderful Sunday,
