Raindrops on Roses....

....and whiskers on kittens....well, on this overcast Saturday there has been a bit of rain to leave refreshing drops on the rose petals, and because of the cooler day my kitty has spent time sleeping on the couch beside me and I am just that wicked that I had to tease her by tickling her whiskers and see how comically she twitches and pulls away in her sleep *grins wickedly*

I hope tomorrow is nicer weather because we're going to the church BBQ after the service and then a staff BBQ in the evening. Tis the season for outdoor cooking and delectable food. Mmmmm!

As I was reading thru my Blog list, I also came across the chance to enter and win a Coach handbag. Sylvia at A Purse Full of Cheerios tells us that they decided last year that "that even the most frugal of fashionistas invest in a new handbag for summer and well, what can I say?", which inspired this giveaway.
The coach handbag brags Graphic, gleaming, and great organization in one timeless tote. Take the time to visit Sylvia's Blog and enter the giveaway.

Have a great weekend :)

Time Marches On

Another weekend past and a new week ahead. It was a good weekend. On Sat. aft Hubby, Mom and I went to my brother's 50th Birthday Party. How fun!! We ate great food, had a slice of yummy Black Forest birthday Cake and laughed at all the humorous cards and a few gag gifts.
Sunday after church turned into a quiet, restful afternoon. It's a time to catch up on some Zzzz's and maybe some yard work.
Yesterday I went with Mom to the Doc and she got clearance to travel. The Doc filled in a "Travel Assistant" form to fax off to Air Canada, meaning I can now travel for virtually free as Mom's Medical Assistant. Our first trip will be to my youngest Sister's home in Ontario, on the beautiful Lake-of-the-Woods. Our plans are to spend lots of time at the beach, on the sail boat and her porch, sipping frosty drinks and maybe a glass of wine or two :)

Mid-life is when the growth of hair on our legs slows down. This gives us plenty of time to care for our newly acquired mustache.

In mid-life women no longer have upper arms, we have wing spans. We are no longer women in sleeveless shirts, we are flying squirrels in drag.

Mid-life is when you can stand naked in front of a mirror
and you can see your rear without turning around.

Mid-life is when you go for a mammogram and you realize
that this is the only time someone will ask you to appear topless.

Mid-life is when you want to grab every firm young lovely
in a tube top and scream, 'Listen, honey, even the Roman
empire fell and those will too.'

Mid-life brings wisdom to know that life throws us curves
and we're sitting on our biggest ones.

Mid-life is when you look at your know-it-all, cellphone
carrying teenager and think, 'For this I have stretch marks?'

In mid-life your memory starts to go. In fact the only
thing we can retain is water.

Mid-life means that your Body By Jake now includes Legs By
Rand McNally--more red and blue lines than an accurately
scaled map of Wisconsin .

Mid-life means that you become more reflective. You start
pondering the 'big' questions. What is life? Why am I
here? How much Healthy Choice ice cream can I eat before
it's no longer a healthy choice?

But mid-life also brings with it an appreciation for what
is important. We realize that breasts sag, hips expand,
and chins double, but our loved ones make the journey
worthwhile. Would any of you trade the knowledge that you
have now, for the body you had way back when? Maybe our
bodies simply have to expand to hold all the wisdom and
love we've acquired..

That's my philosophy and I'm
sticking to it!
