I travelled to B.C. on May 24-June 7 and spent time with my sisters. We had a wonderful time at Pt. Roberts, Wa. as well as in Marg's home in Surrey. One thing the pictures tell me is that my diet is long overdue.
One big event of this summer was my Granddaughter Angela getting her driver's licence, granddaughter Nicole turning 18 and earlier in the spring only Grandson Zachary becoming a teenager. Hard to believe he is 13 already.
We attended baseball games with Rachel playing, and took her to her practise when Sue and Dennis were in Toronto.
My girls and boy are growing up. they are now Nicole (18) Angela (17) Victoria (15) Amanda (15 in Nov) Zachary (13) and Rachel (10). Hard to get a picture of them altogher but 4 at once is good too. L to R is Victoria, Rachel, Amanda and Nicole.
Zachary and Angela are below. Angela doesn't wear glasses all the time but this picture was the closest at hand.
Don is keeping busy this summer making a bit of furniture, doing alot of the gardening and a visit to Tim Horton's occasionally. Right now he has a cold sore in his eye and went to the doctor yesterday. It is very uncomfortable and he does not take being sick well. My sister in law, Doreen , from Kitchener is here with us. I went to Kitchener on Friday and stayed with her. We had a wonderful Saturday at the Market in Kitchener and she came back with me Sat. night. I always enjoy her visists.
I will try not to leave so many months inbetween the blogs. Hi to all my friends and family that read this.

It's a Florida Lifestyle! I am sad to say it is time to put a drop sheet over my palm tree, cover the furniture and set off bug bombs. I head back home next Friday (April 17/09) and leave my home away from home for the next 7 months.
Don has been home for awhile already as he flew back March 26. Allergies were at an all time high this spring and it was very difficult for him the last few weeks. Puffers, antihistimines, etc did not help too much, so he was glad to head back to the cold northern regions of this great continent. He has been keeping busy and has ripped up the broadloom from the master bedroom of our home and put down wood floors. When I get back I will pick out paint and trim to do a complete makeover.
A friend of mine from home has flown down to stay with me and drive back with me acting as navigator. We are using every day to it's fullest doing the pool, the beach, the stores, the flea market as well as bingos and casinos. What a life!
This week the packing has to be done full steam ahead. I have already done some sorting, throwning out and give aways. It happens every year that I shop too much and now with a small car instead of a van I just cannot bring it all back with me.
this was what a packed van looked like in past years, now my little Dodge Avenger has to hold it all (LOL).
We will manage I am sure and what doesn't fit stays here. I am looking forward to going home, but I will miss it here. I'll write again after I get back to Canada.

Myself, Ellen and Arlene on a sightseeing boat trip up in Tarpon Springs. We arrived in Florida this year Mid Novemeber and the weather was perfect. We always have a good time together
Today is March 1, 2009 and it is National Pig Day. We had Breakfast at SkyWay JAck's in St. Petersburg and here is a picture of Don with Miss Piggy.
