Birthdays and special family occasions aside, today is my favourite day of the year. The sky Continue reading
June is, consistently, the month I blog the least in. The days are long, the list of outside activities is huge and life is full, busy and rewarding. It leaves little time to blog when you are making Continue reading
The title makes it sound like I’ve started a pregnancy blog. Heaven forbid at my age! I’m counting down rather than up so it’s an update on my retirement calendar. Although it may actually be 34 weeks and not 32 but more info is required before the initial decision maybe be changed.
Here is the two part why. Ron believes he read somewhere that the best date is the end of your birthday month. On my list of things to do in June is contact the retirement section of human resources and get the low down. The other aspect of the date is that a certain someone in my life will be in Vegas at the King Memorial Soccer tournament. Bad luck that the Friday after my 60th birthday happens to be that weekend. SO if I want my man around for my ultimate TGIF I may have to delay it a week. So then what is two weeks.
I did learn a few things this last two weeks that I have been on holidays. In no particular order and because I love lists.
- I will miss the people but I won’t miss the grind of daily work or getting lunches organized and up on time.
- I will be busy; my days won’t be boring or empty of things to do
- I will need some structure so I don’t fritter away time
- I will need to establish a sleep/wake up routine so I don’t become a total night owl
- I need at least 2 days per week where I don’t run to the city.
The things I’m so looking forward to, like gran time and creative time, will be done without sacrificing other things. I’m hoping for more friend time and more me time.
The pictures of this post have no bearing on the words. Just some shots that filled my heart with joy today so felt like sharing them.
Thanks for stopping in to read. It’s always nice to connect.
Ps – recognize the crocuses now??
The fresh look at Saskatoon and a weekend trip to Vancouver Island made me rethink my life here on the prairies. I came to the same conclusion as Continue reading

It’s that time of year when I have “downtime” for philosophical thoughts. That’s what three hours of Continue reading
This is what the real estate shows talk about endlessly. Location, location, location.
I was thinking about that today while I was outside for Continue reading
You can’t make this kind of shit up and it was crap. All over the window sill and even in the dining room.
The morning dawned like usual and while upstairs I had no concept my day was about to unravel somewhere Continue reading
In all my years of hanging out around native prairie in the spring I’ve never seen anything like this year’s crocuses. I’ve made time for Continue reading
Today is, apparently, Pay it Forward Day. So if you pay it forward do you step forward and take credit for it or just quietly let your actions speak for themselves? I’ve decided it will Continue reading
