I went to see Crash Test Dummies in January! This time, I went by self. Nothing like sitting enjoying the music!
On August 18, my cousin, my daughter and myself went to see P!nk in Toronto.
It was a GREAT concert.
This was originally scheduled for May but was postponed because of a throat infection. It was well worth the wait.
It was awesome.
Thank you P!nk for a wonderful show!!
My dad died less than a week before I turned 13.
40 years ago.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. I miss him. He was truly a nice person. I try to make him proud every day. Some days that is harder than others.
On Dec 25, my daughter turned 24.
We had a good Christmas Day, although I was busy cooking for 16 people!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone!!!
Today was a BUSY day!
I did errands and grocery shopping early in the morning. Then I spent the better part of the day in the kitchen- cooking. I made homemade dog food (ground beef, peppers, spinach, broccoli and a few blueberries) and liver dog treats. That went into our brand new freezer!
I cut up a huge amount of vegetables for the week: celery, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, peppers. I roasted potatoes and cauliflower and made two loaves of meatloaf- which I put into containers for the freezer for a few dinners over the week.
My daughter graduated from University two weeks ago. What an accomplishment.
I thought I would do a few comparisons.
This is me on the left, 29 years ago, when I graduated from Nursing School. I was two weeks shy of 23 years old. My daughter, on the right, is 23 and just finished her architectural history degree.
This is my dad and me when I was 7 or 8. He died when I was 12.
November 14, 1922 - June 22, 1979
39 years without my dad.
In August of 2011, my daughter, her friend and myself did a bike ride around the Greater Niagara Circle Route. Quite an accomplishment for me. It was fun.....ish.
