We had our first snow storm of the season. It came down most of the day. Suppose to be nicer tomorrow. Fingers crossed please, my daughter is traveling for 5 hours tomorrow to come home for Christmas. Hope she is safe on the highways.
My birthday was a month ago but I wanted to wait a few weeks (in order to have your undivided attention) before posting about this beautiful gift I got from my best friend/niece. Forest Friends - check out this fabulous artist. This hoop hangs in my kitchen window where I can see it every single day. I love the forest. I was raised surrounded by the forest. As much as I love the ocean I just as much love going for walks in the forest as I do the beach. I wish you could see the details on this little person standing in the hoop. It is beautiful.
We had a gorgeous sunny day today so Dave and I went to the Gilbert's Cove Lighthouse and... ... the Belliveau Cove Lighthouse. The picture above - I look cold but it actually wasn't too windy or cold. That funny look on my face is the sun being too bright in my eyes.
Hope everyone is taking time in this busy time of the year to slow down and be more present in your daily activities. Happy Monday tomorrow !
We got up this morning to a very light blanket of snow on the ground. However, it's still falling so it could accumulate as the day progresses. Dave started to put the lights on the christmas tree this morning and half of the lights don't work :-( so we are headed in town to buy more lights.
Hopefully by tonight I'll have pictures of a finished tree to post.
Remember the Cowboy themed party last month. Last night we had another one, this time the theme was ''Tacky Christmas Sweater/Outfit''. As I've mentioned here before, I don't have a lot of friends but those that I have are the best. We had fun last night. Everyone was in a very festive mood - we sang christmas carols, santa dropped by for a visit and laughter, oh ya, there was lots of laughter and cheers.
I have two grown children and grandmother to a little boy. I prefer a simple, low-maintenance lifestyle. I try to give more than I receive. I believe everything happens for a reason. Our home reflects who we are.
My mantra "Celebrate Life"
A chain of used clothing stores found throughout the atlantic provinces of Canada. Started by a man from my area, Mr. Edwin Theriault. You never know what you'll find, there's something for everyone, clothing for the whole family, major brand names, books, footwear, drapery, brick a bracks, etc. I love it so much, can't help myself from going - I'm addicted to Frenchy's.
