Just came across this little article. I edited out the swearing but it still has the impact I like this for. Now, you will never catch me in a bikini no matter what....but I love the cheeky attitude of just wear one if you want to!!
How to dress for your shape: are you human shaped? Play up your confidence and natural sex appeal by wearing whatever you want.
Life Tip: As the weather gets warmer continue to wear what you want. Flaunt some skin or keep it cool under cover. Dress yourself to feel rad!
How to get a bikini body: put a bikini on your body
Want sexy own-the-beach legs?? shave or don't because they're your legs!!

With warmer temps and the snow melting away, we shrug off our layers of coat, scarf, gloves. I have been able to wear just my light jacket. Consequently, I pulled out our spring/summer clothes and sorted through them to freshen up and discard the ones that are faded, worn or sun damaged. Now it's time to go shopping. I think Maxine expresses my thoughts exactly......

Last night I picked Hubby up at the airport. Oh it was SO great to see him again. It was a tough trip for him to make but for him, knowing his Mom was well taken care of gave him peace. It gave him some closure. Of course there is the ongoing grief of losing his Mom. We all grieve differently and that's the case for my Hubby and I. His strengths of organization and sorting thru problems and solving them means that dealing with all that has to be done when a loved one passes away, to get all of this finished and to finally take her ashes and put his Mom to rest gave his own heart rest!
This morning when George sat relaxing with his coffee, Mitzi hopped on his lap to tell him how much she missed him while he was away. Sweet :)

This morning came very early...4:30am to be exact! I could barely crack an eyelid but had to take Hubby to the airport to catch his flight to Southern B.C. Today he was going to have to wrap up stuff at his Mom's Care Home and pick up her personal things and then go to the Funeral Home to pick up Mom's ashes. Tomorrow he says his final Goodbye.

I just poured myself a steaming cup of tea and have the lights on low, creating a warm ambiance...unlike the scene that's happening outside! The Calendar says April...quotes, poems and Authors write about this month using words like, "showers, gardening, planting, blooms". In this northern town, so far this month none of those words apply!
Yesterday afternoon the wind kicked up and snow started falling, driving the snow horizontal. Brrr! Road conditions were slippery and visibility was almost nil. This carried on through the night and this morning but this afternoon the sun came out for a brilliant ending to the day.
Spring???....not so much!!

August 28, 1923 to April 1, 2013
We have moved into the month of April. April 1st coincided with Easter Monday this year and the end to the long weekend. As we were hanging out enjoying a quiet evening Hubby's cell rang. His Mom had passed away. She had really been declining the last year....going from a mentally clear, intelligent woman into full dementia at the end. The last time Hubby saw her, she did not recognize him and became very agitated when he hung around her and was his charming self. She was a wonderful woman and drew me into her heart completely. Hubby was her only child so having a daughter and our three boys added to the family made her so happy! She survived World War 11, finally fleeing the Russian and Nazi invasion, leaving her parents and home in Hungary. It was a terrifying time for her. She landed up in a Refugee camp in France and then climbed aboard a ship to the only country left with open borders, Venezuela. She already spoke Hungarian and German and quickly learned Spanish and English to survive in her new Country. She got a job at Shell Oil and that's where she met her Husband. Not wanting to get married in a Catholic church, they went to Panama City to get married in a Protestant Church. After 10 years my Hubby finally joined the family and sadly they could have no other children. Hubby spent his first 12 years in Venezuela before Immigrating to Canada.
Canada was good to Mom and she was well looked after in her retirement years, having the foresight to secure an Apartment in a Senior's Manor and later spending her last years in a Retirement Center after the death of her husband. She lived to be 89 1/2 years old....not a bad life :)
Rest in Peace mom and we look forward to seeing you again with all our other loved ones!
