Instagram is quick and easy and I am falling under it's spell.
Time is ticking along quickly...my days are full.
It could be the dental work, Mah Jongg, Bridge lessons and games, the walking, domestics, gardening and lunches out with friends. I am really enjoying meeting new people and exercising my brain cells!
I've joined Goward House, a seniors centre ( 50 years +) that is housed in a heritage home with several acres of woodland walking trails. A wide variety of classes and courses are offered and special interest clubs meet on site.
There is a small tea room set in a lovely room with vast windows overlooking the gardens...
soup, sandwiches, tea, coffee and sweets are reasonably priced, and the tea room is open to the public.
There are wide expansive decks that have tables and chairs which are used in the warmer weather...
weddings are frequently held here in the summer. It's a quiet and peaceful location for a celebration.
I think it is just lovely, such a relaxed atmosphere, antique and comfy furniture, beautiful artwork hangs on the walls, fresh flowers in vases, it feels like you are in the home of a good friend.
We purchased a beauty berry bush last weekend and planted several dozen purple allium bulbs around it's base...we plan to add a bunch of black mondo grass in the same bed.
Purple and Black sound like a interesting pairing.
I spied this super hero on my walk in our neighbourhood.
I wondered if it was making a statement and if so what was the message?
It's probably some one's idea of "garden art."
Moss covered rocks seen on Moss Street!
Creepy spiders are lurking in the trees....
Halloween decorations are more popular than they have been in the past.
We live in an area with good schools that offer French Immersion and so there are a lot of families with young children.
I'm reading this book right now and it's an easy and entertaining story.
If you liked The 100 year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared,
I think you'll enjoy this one too.
I've used up all my old lotions and potions and have switched up my skincare regime.
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses for Sensitive skin.
An organic and cruelty free line.
I love the rose scent of all the products.
It's scent lingers long after you put it on...
(some people would not like to smell like a rose)
I'm new to eye gel and find this product has helped plump up and fills in the fine lines.
The exfoliator is gentle and does it's job without causing irritation or redness.
The oil is great for cuticles, hair and after shaving.
The Heavenly Night Time Moisturizer is so rich and soothing...I use it for daytime as my skin is super dry.
I'm going to invest in their serum for winter as my skin usually gets drier and needs more moisture.
I draped this Hermes scarf around my neck...
for the afternoon of Bridge.

Sitting playing Mah Jongg or Bridge there are lulls in the game where you notice what the other players are wearing...
rings, necklaces, bracelets and scarves.
