I hope that you will continue to pop by and catch up.
Life has been busy and full and I am feeling immense gratitude these days...
The latest posts have been smaller and while I do apologize, my inability to sit and type for very long due to the shoulder issue have necessitated that I keep my time at the computer short.
But let's get on with it and put aside any whining and complaining!
The Spring flowers are working their magic...
This is one stunning Hellebore!
I love the colour and those stamens are like little jewels.
Henry, our grandson, came over last week to spend a morning with Grammy.
We had a fun building with blocks, we coloured in our book, shaped things with Play Doh, ate a healthy snack and read books.
Next time it will be Isla's turn and I plan to make cookies or cupcakes and we can decorate them together and she can take them with her when she goes home.
One on one time is a lovely way to connect with the grandchildren.
Essie Jag-u-are lasts about a week
I wear my gloves when doing the house work and washing the dishes.
I bought French's ketchup and learned that Heinz pulled out of Canada and laid off all the employees.
French's stepped up and has started making ketchup as well as their classic mustard.
I like the idea of keeping Canadians working and buying local.

My car was in the shop again...
this time not as a result of vandalism but wear and tear.
My 2001 Volvo Estate is a high maintenance gal.
I have to keep her running as I cannot afford a new car right now.
The comfort that this car offers suits me and I do love Volvo's for their safety features.
I have owned 2 Volvo's prior to this one and I would opt for another one in the future.
While the car was being serviced I went shopping...
I bought this beautiful rhinestone brooch for resale at Vanity Fair Antiques.
Darling daughter and I rent a shelf in a case where we sell a few things.
Mostly jewelry and a few other bits and bobs.
Scottish citrine Hallmarked silver pin
If I can figure out how to launch an Etsy shop I might try my hand at selling online.
It is fun to go browsing for treasures and beautiful things.
These Mexican silver earrings are for my personal use.
Since I got my hair cropped I am wearing bigger earrings.
You can see the reflection of me taking this photograph!
I stopped for a healthy lunch at The Grindstone Cafe.
Their salads are tasty and they make a great tortilla soup.
So that's about all for now...
Hope your week is off to a great start.
Be Well and Be Kind.
