Well the end of January is almost here. I am excited for February
because of the Olympics being in Vancouver.
My favorite part of Vancouver is Granville Island.
If you have never been and get a chance it is a must.
They have the neatest stores and a farmers market.
Once you enter the building, oh my you are met by aromas, spices, music,
Every time I have been, it is as if I have just taken a holiday around the world.
So as busy as the city is, it will be even more abuzz with tourists and Olympians!
Although I find this exciting, I will be in the comfort of my home watching from the sidelines.
I took the above photograph the other day, and love the splash of color!
It actually makes me smile and soon Spring will be here,
which personally for me can not come soon enough!
I had my first 8 hour solid sleep in almost 4 weeks,
And I awoke feeling as if I had my batteries recharged!
And if feels good!
My nephews spent the night on Wednesday,
and as usual, we laughed and laughed.
They helped me do a bunch of stuff around the house,
not bad for being 16 and 11,
after the work was done, the youngest even said how much he loves being here.
They were not saying that Thursday morning when I woke them with the clang of a silver spoon
on a silver pot! They were up in no time saying only in my house would they be woken up
like that! I have definately decided that if they lived with me that they would eat us out of house and home.
They were only here one night and I kid you not a restocking of the cupboards almost needs to be done!
So they came and went and as usual, I miss them before they are even out of the city!
I had a quick visit with my sister, Her fiance and she were spending a romantic evening out, and then the next day they were all at the West Edmonton Mall for the day and night.
They wanted me to go, but knew it is not the place for me!
So that was my last few days. I enjoyed all The Simple Thing posts on Wednesday
and was overwhelmed by the many visits to my blog!
Christina from Soul Aperture really did kick any of the January blues that were out there.
I know she could take on anything and the outcome will always be positive and loving.
Today My Simple Things that I am grateful for are,
Waking up with Energy, the brewing of the coffee,
the morning quiet,
and starting my day with you.
