August 23, 2013


I spent the whole day out yesterday and a part of my outing was a coffee with my dear friend Annabel. We hadn't gotten together since Mom's passing and so she brought me this lovely care present filled with creative play. It was just right considering that sitting down and just colouring has been one thing that's been helpful with my grieving process.


Okay, this might not be the most exciting pic, but after about  a WEEK without internet I was thrilled to finally have it back.  It's kind of unbelievable how much a part of everyday life being online, or having access to being online, has become.  Now, ... I have to go watch a bunch of shows online, download stuff and y'know...catch up with Facebook, YouTube, etc...oh my.  This might take a while...


I don't have a photo for yesterday because my camera battery died so I thought I would show this one from the other day instead. I got a gift box from PC and I returned 2 empty water bottles and got $20 back in deposit! I have another one to return too. We had so many for when Reg was deployed but since that isn't going to happen, they just take up floor space. I feel like nothing is getting done but I am working so hard. At least returning the bottles had its reward!

Shannon, I am beyond thrilled to hear you FINALLY have internet again! Yes, there will be so much to catch up on but yay!!!! I have missed you!

Awesome news, Shannon! It's so true that we really do live so much of our lives connected. I'm glad you're back online!

Wow, Suzie, those are big bottles. Yay to getting some money back. It's always nice to have another $20 in your pocket!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Oh, and a bit of a late add for me :)

Shannon said...

How sweet of Annabell! The perfect care pack at the perfect moment, that's totally lovely Jamie :)

And YAY for getting some casharoo back for those HUGE water bottles. Wow, how much do they cost if returning them gives you $20?

And YAY to being back online!! YIPPEES!

What a totally appropriate and absolutely "you" gift Jamie and I am so glad that colouring is helping. :)

It was a pleasant surprise indeed and we still have one more bottle to return!

Shannon, the $10 is a deposit on the bottles. Since we returned them for good, we got our money back.

Yay!!!! You're back home online, so happy!

OH now I get the math. It always freaks me out when I don't get the math. TY :)
