July 23rd

Day 205 — Spent a lovely afternoon with my granddaughter and my sister-in-law.  Went for lunch at Cora’s (not all that good), then went out to Salisbury Greenhouses (lovely place) and afterwards, ice-cream at Dairy Queen (always good).

Hailey was a little confused at first about why Michelle and I would want to go see a ‘green’ house.  We laughed and tried to explain, but until we got there I don’t think she truly understood where we were going.  Thankfully, Salisbury, like most greenhouses these days, isn’t just full of plants.  They had lovely furniture, gift ware, jewellery, clothes and ornaments.  We had too much fun looking at jewellery and Hailey modelled purses and scarves for us.  She is becoming such a charming and funny young girl.

Went for a walk in the evening with my friend Shelly.  Stopped by for a quick visit at my son and daughter-in-law’s place, ran into a friend I hadn’t seen in ages and stood talking in the street for a good 15 minutes.  I love living in a small town!

Day 4

A couple of things for today — a lovely lunch with my sister-in-law Michelle — we don’t often get time to just spend with one another, so that was a treat.  Then, as a Christmas present from my sister Jennifer a travel mug that she had engraved with this saying:  Blessed is Knowing the True Love and Joy of a sister!  The capital K, T, L and J are the initials of our names.  Very sweet.
