The dinner theatre last night sponsored by our company was really nice.. We had a table of 10 .. all family so that made it extra special.
The meal was so prepared with loving hands and so so delicious .. the play preformed by the local stars was great!!
The only down side is the drive home, the fog had started to roll in by the time we got home at 12:30 this morning .. glad we didn't have to drive any further.
My mom really enjoyed her day .. we took her to the new shop before the theatre to give her vip tour , like she "its hard to picture something you have never seen .. she is very proud of us and that makes it all worth while.
My mom and dad had grocery & meat markets in the area for 35 years so it was an evening of rekindling friendships made years ago for mom last night. Dad passed away in 1988 he was 56 he carved a path of fun and friends during the years he was here, he truly lived .. not too many can say that .. he's still a legend in the meat world .. he taught meat cutting and sausage making at the community college every winter between curling games and ski doing..
So mom renewed long lost relationships , as her heart was warmed by the stories of Dad .. if there was fun to be had he was there. He created fun .. and always had the childish mischievous twinkle in his eyes.
The next big thing will be our grand opening / Christmas Party on Dec 14th .. lots to do to get ready for that but it is fun and I love to do it .. so if I start complaining just ignore me okay ??
Dec 1st and I cant believe how easy my Christmas shopping is this year .. instead of sweaters and jackets that don't fit .. a seasons pass to the aquatic centre .. a weekend pass with camping to the country jamboree .. a spa retreat .. a gym membership ... easy breezy cover girl .. just a few stocking stuffers and over course the kitchen Olympics and its all good ..
I have a magic sweater that Cedes and her mom made me for Christmas .. this year at the Christmas Party the sweater and its magic will be displayed and a request made from the attendants of the party to donate in the name of a charity or family in need .. at the end of the day Cedes will draw the recipient of the funds (that will be matched by our company) .. I also have several pictures of her art work to raffle to go towards the cause. Teaching my babies to love , share and give is most rewarding.. the ideas that they come up .. wow.
Cedes is 7 .. so she has lots of ideas for her cousin Meagan ( 21) who is working at a day care centre as part of her social work degree.. so inspiring to hear them discuss the world and the problems of children these two angels .. so when you think the future looks grim and that the next generation is hopeless .. I beg to differ ..
Well dear friends .. my list isn't getting any shorter and I do need to get moving .. just wanted to stop by and say good morning and say thank you .. have an amazing day and week ahead and know that you are loved !!
