Hello August....I am happy to greet you but before I do, I must say goodbye to July and some of the highlights and lowlights!
1- Watching Allissa wear an earwig on her wrist in the bug watch bracelet I bought her with no fear!
4- for so much rain that is at least helping my garden to grow
5-Happy First Birthday to my sweet grand baby miss Miah!
6-My favorite tree is starting to bloom my favorite orange flowers.
7-The radiologist was on the ball today and cancelled the angio part of my tests because I had an allergic reaction last time which could have been worse this time around as they forgot to order me prednasone & benydryl first. So I just had the litre of contrast and pudding minus the aspartame as I am allergic.
8-When I jokingly told my granddaughter Allissa that I now glow in the dark and she responded with "cool gramma can I come to your house and see!"
16-Pleased with the little outfits I made for miss Miah's birthday (re-styled) and an original design T-shirt for her.
18-Meeting Audrey the Rescued Red Slider Spokes Turtle for Little Res Q
19-Getting to hang out with the 1966 Batmobile
20-Proud of the accomplishments of Dear Thelma, Love Louise after one month in business!
21- I am "this" close to telling everyone in charge of my health care right now to BACK OFF I have it from here on in. I am grateful that I have health care but it is glaringly more obvious with every day that the right hand has no idea what the left hand is doing.
23-Seriously? I saw some similar items to what I make this eve. Mine are way cooler! Just saying! It costs me $1.50. - $5.00 to make and can be made in 10 mins. They were selling theirs for $20- $30 bucks. I sell mine for $5-$10. Highway robbery I say.
25-For love & understanding & respect for different walks and life journeys.
26-The decision to start a new diary.
27-For news that there is no malignancy suspected with liver tumour and that brain tumour is stable for now.
28-For standing my ground and refusing yet another requested invasive test for the brain tumour and being OK with that.
29-Introducing Wendy to the Tim Horton's Pretzel Bagel with mustard spread.
30-A visit to Heaven Scent to stock up on incense!
31-Lens Mills Shopping Spree and some great prices on supplies needed.
32-Heard from Erick...he is backpacking across Canada again...Westward bound!
33-Kitchen Table crafting time with Wendy this eve.
34-Picking up my auction items and discovering in my $4 box of books, 2 signed Patrick Lima books and what appears to be the "Mock Up" of an architectural book by Architect Tony Gwilliam with all of his notes, editing, paste ins etc!
35-Also finding in my box of books, a book that I received in 1991 in Ottawa and got rid of in 2000 here in London.... it was written by a psychic who very eerily predicted most of my future up until a few years ago (I painted a painting about it) (a book on spirit guides) How frigging creepy and fascinating is that!
36-Finding an original SARK~ "How To Be An Artist Wall Plaque".
37-Took miss Alissa school shopping. She knows what she likes and what she doesn't like. Sparkly shoes were on her want list and she suggested a 4 slice toaster as the 2 slice one is apparently not up to her standards!
38-Hit up the Goodwill 50% off sale and got some cool rock t-shirts for restyling.
39-Packing for a random 4 day road trip with no particular plan in mind...the best kind!
