A bit of this and that

I saw this somewhere online. What can I say, glad that someone got the photo.

Life goes on. It seems that we are quite occupied each day. Sounds like it is time to start planning to go back to the Isla 😎

We all want to be in our special spot. For certain we will be staying at least 5 months next season.

Just this past Monday we went for yet another chiropractic appointment in Summerland. We were both still ‘out’. I wish   that we could just fly to see my wonderful chiropractor in Edmonton and spend only 2 days and 1 night but we don’t have an extra $1400.00 to do that right now. Fingers crossed that this guy will be able to help us. I had looked up off leash dog parks in the area and there happened to be just the one and it was an off leash dog beach. It was much larger than expected and very nice.

I thought that the girls would go wild like on the Isla but no, they just very politely checked the place out.

They did try to escape the fence in area – of course.

A really lovely area.

Needless to say they did not stay still for long. The water was much too cold for them to even tip toe into.

So many shades of spring blooms everywhere.

Sometimes I have problems bringing the blinds back up. I probably pull the chain too fast. Fortunately I have Colin to sort things out.

Big decision but for the first time since we moved here in 2003 Colin has decided to start taking care of our lawn as he has more time. He purchased this wonderful mower for $80.00. For the last few years we have been paying $35.00 per cut ( $140.00 per month ). We are already ahead of the game. Great deal and Colin is doing a fantastic job. The lawn looks better than ever. We made a deal with our original lawn guy to keep doing the thatching in the spring and to fertilize as need. Perfect. Also if we are away he will cut the lawn for us.

May 2nd sunrise – in the east!!

May 2nd sunrise – in the south. We certainly live in an interesting  area. Thank goodness took these. Of course I was still asleep.

Stunning photo but so sad that this is because the forest fires have already started.

    What a lovely post. So nice to see the girls enjoying the off-leash park, they always seemed to do everything together. Your yard looks so wonderful and it’s great to see Colin up and enjoying the outdoors. I’m assuming his back is better. Your last photo is spectacular but brought a tear to my eye to see the fires already raging.

    Love reading your blog
