Happy Canada Day 2021!

 Dear Diary:

Another year of keeping the celebrations small but that won't stop me in either world.  

Chloe and I will be celebrating with a few friends this year.  We wish a Happy Canada Day to everybody.  Celebrate our country anyway you can.

Good Night for now.

My Idea Of How To Spend The Day

 Dear Diary:

It turned hot in my part of the world.  It was welcome after the cool rainy spring but I don't think my body adjusted very well to the quick change.  I didn't feel like doing very much in either of my worlds.  So when faced with that - I didn't do very much!

I'm going to try this again some time.

Good Night for now.

Happiness Is...

 Dear Diary:

When I saw this sweatshirt, I just had to have it.  Not only because I liked the colour (and I rarely like pink) but for the saying printed on it.  

It got me thinking about what makes me happy.  Here's a few things.

Happiness is...a big plate of spaghetti...a cup of hot chocolate with a marshmallow on a snowy day...doing nothing when I know I should be doing something...and, of course, being with my family.

What makes you happy?

Good Night for now.

A Gourmet Lunch For Me

 Dear Diary:

I enjoy my food.  Any kind.  But one of my big indulgences is a good hot dog.

I think I've tried all different kinds but I do have my favs.  I love a steamed wiener with a soggy bun, ketchup, mustard, relish and onions.  That's what you get at a baseball or hockey concession stand.  And then there's the home cooked type - BBQed with sauce, fried onions, bacon.  But the highlight of my tasting delight was when I had a Chicago hot dog.

The wiener must be a boiled all-beef one.  It has to be a steamed bun.On the bun, in order, is placed yellow mustard, sweet green pickle relish, onion, tomato, pickle spear, peppers, and celery salt.  A gastronomic delight!!!

Good Night for now.

Towel Day 2021. Where Are You?

 Dear Diary:

Here we are on May 25th, 2021 celebrating Towel Day once again.  Every year, as a tribute to Douglas Adams, author of "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", fans carry towels.  When you read the book, it explains the importance of the towel.  

This year I'm in Hawaii.  Where are you?

I Can Work It Two Ways

 Dear Diary:

I like to spend money - furniture, decor, but especially fashion.  My closet is often bulging at the walls.  But sometimes I know I need to reign in my acquisitions and use an item in a couple of ways.  So this is what I did.

I found these wonderful pants that I purchased and paired with casual accessories.  I loved the look but thought I could probably get more wear out of them in an entirely different

Another Busy Weekend

 Dear Diary:

The weekend is here and I always find the time is necessary to get caught up on a whole bunch of chores that I've managed to put off.  This time it was the laundry.  I try to keep up with it but once in awhile it gets away from me so today I tackled it. 

It was necessary to have lunch out of a can so I could wait for the dryer to finish and then start folding.  I haven't eaten this way in a long time but I usually found out it was fun - and satisfying...and tasty!

I had forgotten how appetizing it was cold and right out of the can.

Happy Mother's Day 2021

 Dear Diary:

Normally, on Mother's Day, when I'm standing by the stove, it's loaded with pots and pans and the oven is full.  This year, like last, is certainly different.  My stove is not as complete as usual.  However, I'll still make the most of it.

To all the mothers, I wish you a happy day.

Where Are The May Flowers?

 Dear Diary:

I was hoping the first day in May would bring sunny weather but unfortunately in both my worlds, I'm getting rain.  I'm sure we need it for the soon-to-be gardens but maybe it could be postponed until after the weekend.

It seems the only flowers this rain is bringing are those I bought at the store.

Earth Day 2021

 Dear Diary:

On this Earth Day, there are several things that are happening to us that we should be concerned about.  We should be more aware of where we throw our garbage; we are wasting almost 58% of the food we have; and, we need to be mindful of our digital usage. 

What can we do as citizens of this planet?  Make sure we don't litter and pick up other trash when we are able to.  Use everything you buy for food and freeze items that can't be used right away.  Limit watching online videos as they generate a large amount of CO2. 

We don't want our world to look like this:

We have an amazing planet.  Let's do everything we can to keep it that way.

Retro Fashion Is My Thing

 Dear Diary:

I really love a retro style.  It doesn't matter what decade it comes from, the clothes and accessories appeal to me.  Of course I do favour a lot of the modern trends too.  So when I found this dress it fulfilled both wants for me.
It was retro fashion made for me!

The dress definitely inspires a '60s thought but it has a modern flair with the short skirt.  I loved the pattern and since it came in a variety of colours it was hard to choose.  

Of course the location for the pic had to be modern but I had to pair the dress with long straight hair and round blue tinted glasses, just to keep in the mood.

Happy Easter 2021

 Dear Diary:

In my first world, shopping is a bit of a problem while this lockdown is in effect.  And of course my big Easter dinner is not so big!  But in my second life everything is a go.

I managed to find a great Easter market with lots of interesting decor.  I think I spent too many L$

Have a very Happy Easter.  I hope all your eggs are chocolate ones.

Is This Spring?

Dear Diary:

The first week of Spring past for me without realising it was here.  Why? Because it snowed!!  The first day was not too bad - soft, large flakes that left pretty puffs on the tree.  "It will be gone quickly", I thought.  Nope! Overnight the snow fell again but this time it was too much.  I needed the snow blower for that.  When I looked out the window the third day and saw more of the icy pellets coming down, I knew that Spring had left the city.

I'm not putting away my boots yet.

Is This Plum Or Is It Purple?

 Dear Diary:

The one thing I've found about this pandemic is that I've saved a ton of money on cosmetics.  Like...who wants to put on the whole preparation, walk out of the house and have to cover everything up with a mask?  Then when you have to remove your face covering, all of your makeup is inside the mask, especially lipstick.  But I get tired of looking like a pasty version of myself so I decided I would still put on makeup every day, even if I was staying at home.

I must admit it did feel good when I looked in the mirror - not a better me - a more colourful me.

Winter Is Here For Awhile

Dear Diary:

The cold weather hasn't left my part of the world.  Layers of sweaters, scarves and gloves seem to be my every-day-attire!  I don't mind the chill of winter if I'm dressed appropriately and the humidity isn't high enough to bring the extreme frozen feel into my body.  So dressed in the correct way, visiting a warmer snowy location in my second life seemed to be a good spot to be in.

Winterland is a great place to visit.  There are lots of surprises to see while walking down paths and there's even a train station with a train ready for a ride.  Take a trip out to this picturesque location.

Happy Valentine's Day 2021

 Dear Diary:

Lockdown is still on so no going out for a nice dinner but I did buy myself cookies and candy at the store so I'm set for a great day.

I'm not going to repeat myself by writing about my non-affectionate-thoughts concerning Valentine's Day but I did decide to do something for the day.  I chose the reasonable side.

Up!! Up And Away!

 Dear Diary:

After my last post on my inability to get moving, I decided a change of scenery might just be what I needed.  When I looked through the list of destinations, the Lavender Lake Balloon Ride really appealed to me.

In my first life, I had been up in a hot air balloon a few years back.  It was exciting and scary both at the same time.  Of course the view was breathtaking and I totally enjoyed my trip so of course I wanted to try it in my second life.

Funny how I felt the same apprehension but...

once up in the air it was magical!

A great afternoon!

I Need To Get Motivated

 Dear Diary:

Is it me or is it just the time of year?  January always was a very long month for me - cold snowy weather; out to work in the dark and home in the dark; and, cleaning up all the left over Christmas items.  But none of those were the reasons this year in either of my lives.  We've had a mild winter and the Christmas things went away early and quickly.  So what is it?  I don't seem to want to do anything anywhere.

First I'm going to get a better attitude.  Next get dressed into some proper clothes.  Maybe even shop for something new.  Spending money usually perks me up.  Then I guess I'd better clean my kitchen.  Hopefully I'll be on a new track.  I did say hopefully...

Thinking About New Year's Resolutions

 Dear Diary:

I don't make New Year's Resolutions.  I don't make them because I don't keep them.  Over the years I've tried to follow along when friends are espousing theirs but it's futile for me.  As soon as it comes out of my mouth I know it won't work.

A lot of subjects that people choose for their intent are impossible to fulfil.  Others are personal thoughts and they can be easy to abandon.  But when I saw this T-shirt, I had to have it.  It says it all.

If you made resolutions this year, I hope you can manage to keep them.  As for me, I'll struggle along with my.."if only I could".
