Plans

My father always maintained that for a happy life one needs something to look forward to. I'm a firm believer in a one day at a time philosophy but it lifts my spirits to plan travelling or a creative project.

A busy summer is lined up and I'm pretty happy about that. Enough breaks in between to take a breather.

Coming back from this I have Grandgirl coming for a week or so and staying with me.

Next on the agenda would be time spent with Daughter in August for my birthday, perhaps in Labrador and Red Bay, we've been tossing ideas around as her time is limited due to work.

Then in September another friend is coming from Ontario (her second visit) and we plan to visit Trinity, Fogo Island and Gros Morne, all of which I've been to before (in some cases more than once!) but she hasn't.

So all in all cruising through this summer sounds pretty exciting and eventful.

And yes, food is still peaceful, nutritious and appetizing. My clothes are looser and my energy has improved. My arm trouble lingers on so I am going to see an osteopath and I hope to get to the bottom of this. My speculation is boundless but pointless.

Two wee things I just knitted as a gift for a friend who adores both gingerbread men and books.

  1. Oh but these plans sound wonderful...I had no idea you were an August birthday...by a twist of fate, so am I. That gift for your friend is very pretty.

  2. Enjoy your summer. I have two family reunions to attend and of course both are in August. The rest of summer is going to be used for fishing, playing music, reading and with luck getting my online store up and running. All of which I take great pleasure in.
    Have a great summer dear lady.

    1. One never knows, I loved a trip I made there for a wedding back in the day. We drove through the Dakotas, it was marvellous. Regina is a beautiful city. Your farm sounds like a place I'd love.

  4. A busy summer indeed. All our plans are on hold at the moment since my mum is dying. We were planning a trip to Berlin and Hamburg very shortly.

    I hope you make some progress with the arm problem.

    1. Sorry to hear about your mother. Are you maintaining a bedside vigil? It must be very hard on you.

    2. No, I didn't go over to England as it was possible she could slip away at any moment and it would take me at least 4-5 hours to get there. In the end she hung on for four days and died early this Sunday morning.

  5. I just spent an hour reading your blog. You write so beautifully and powerfully about so many things--moving, downsizing, sadness, chronic illness, all these things that sound so bald and boring when we use those words (which you mostly do not) but which are fascinating and filled with life when you write about them. I am glad your move went well. I am deeply sorry about Ansa. I am glad you are traveling. XOXO

    1. Thank you Laurie. We go back a ways and through dog grief. I wish I could have got another dog but this building doesn't allow. I love the Puppy Chronicles :)

  6. Sounds like you have an interesting summer planned and am happy for you. A change in environment does seem to release some refresher juices for me, too.

    1. Yes, it really helps Joared, I hope you're well as you haven't been updating your own blog.

      I'm slightly worried about the NB trip. My friend is there and not so there which concerns me.

  8. Phew, it'll be an exciting summer WWW! I envy your cooler temperatures. Even if I were feeling like a nice wee road trip right now, it's too darn hot here- triple digits forecast and it's only a couple of days into June!

    Enjoy, enjoy, WWW it's what life is all about! :)

    1. Thanks T. I do hope you get your health issues sorted quickly. I've always hated heat. I burn easily and find my brain feels like a seizure and I can't think straight. I couldn't bear it in the dog days of Toronto with the humidity so high.

      Thanks for your well wishes :)
