Hi everyone who passes this way now and then! I hope you had good day wherever you are!

The day started out not very promising looking weatherwise, but it wasn't long into the day, that we were stripping off sweaters and either rolling down car windows, or jacking the air conditioning up. It got really hot!!

You'd never know that gas was expensive around our house, as off we went to fill up and go on another little jaunt with our GPS, leading us all the way. I've been driving on these little trips we make, and find that the GPS, actually helps me to relax more as I can then sort of look around for landmarks, knowing that our GPS pilot, named Jill will tell me when to make the next turn and in how many metres. Not that the metre's thing helps me much, as I never did know the difference, between an inch and 6 inches.....hardy har, har har!!! ( Oh yes, I DO!!) But, joking aside, I'm worse with metric!

All of a sudden Tom will decide to make a little detour, and Jill is forever trying to get us back on track and forever is saying "repositioning", and we swear her voice gets more annoyed with these two dummies she got stuck with. I told Tom, one of these times, her arm is somehow coming out of the GPS and giving him a smack on the head!!

Anyway, we ended up at another Mall. Don't ask me which one, as my memory isn't any better then my math! But it was out in Langley for those that know Vancouver area.
Tom sits and reads and off I go looking. I swore I wasn't going to buy a thing, but found this nice cool looking summer blouse, and a bright sunny yellow, sort of weavy type material in a light pull-over for our trip to Alaska. Then I found a red summer hat with a REALLY WIDE brim that sort of bends this way and that, and I could see the potential for making it into a nifty hat for the Red Hat group. I'll have to take it to Michaels for some flowers and trim for it. Actually, it's kind of comical looking and should really be on a horse, like you'd see pulling a cart with his ears sticking out.
Tom say's "I thought you wern't going to buy anything?".. My reply was..."It was a great deal...75% off!!" How can you pass up a deal like that, even though the clothes closet is jammed so full that everything I go to wear is so squashed, it has to be ironed first!

Thanks Connie for your message this morning. it was so great to hear from someone special from the College. Hopefully Brenda will send a little note too. I don't know why more people don't leave messages on the blog. Just my great supporters, Joan and Roxanne and Irene and even my 10 year old granddaughter got it to work. It must be very temperamental or something! years!! Where did the time go eh? You will love being retired and puttering around the beautiful home of yours. You won't even think of the College. The College sure sounds like it's changing. Is the Health Center in the same place? I doubt if it will ever get moved, for many reasons, I suppose.

Finished another good book last night, but can't remember the name right now. I really need to update my book list. Has anyone out there, read anything great that you could suggest?

We just finished a big dinner, and now, I'm ready for the bathtub and to start a new book.

Did anyone watch American Idol last night? I was so wishing the other David would have won. Both were really good! I especially enjoyed George Michael last night and he's in Vancouver soon. Any readers out there, interested in going to see him at the Casino??
Picture of the day: MMMMmmmm, don't these look good!!! Actually they are brought in from California. There is NOTHING like a strawberry, just fresh picked from the strawberry patch, and sun warmed, sweet, and juicy good!
Thought of the day: I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.
