Summer in Saskatchewan

Sherwood Golf Course – 2019

Today is the first day of summer 2020! With our less than hospitable winters, I live for spring and summer. The shining sun, the singing birds, the warm summer breeze… Life is good! Actually as much as life is always good, we have barely seen the sun for days, the birds are too cold to sing and that breeze is 50 to 70 km gusts of northern gale force winds. What’s a Canadian girl to do?

Turning up the fireplace helps – obviously not real but it does have a good electric heater.
Enjoy a hot cup of tea – I love my tea diffuser from Dan & Amanda. And my cup from Kori 💖
Have a hearty breakfast. Yes we have real dishes – no I do not use them🤦
Do some baking. These were pretty good but I am leaning toward’s chocolate chip today.
If all else fails, put on your fur coat, wrap yourself in a pillow and call it a day.

Enjoy the first day of summer 2020 everybody! 💐

I Am Canadian 🇨🇦

I am Canadian! I have always been proud to be Canadian and I have always been grateful to be Canadian. I am still proud and grateful to be Canadian🇨🇦

These days I am less than excited about some of my fellow Canadians.

I am not now, nor have I ever been a fan of Don Cherry. To be honest I am not a hockey fan so for the most part I have been able ignore him, if not his history of ignorant remarks.

I am not now, nor have I ever been a fan of the rude, arrogant, entitled Alberta attitude. I support the Canadian oil industry and definitely believe such products should be shipped via pipelines. I also support the enforcement of regulations to protect our environment and the investment in renewable resources.

I am not a fan of Andrew Scheer, Jason Kenney, Scott Moe, Doug Ford or Yves-Francois Blanchet. I would be the first to respect anyone’s right to vote for them but they will never get my vote.

I love Canada. I support diversity, economic growth and environmental protection. I support Canadian values – kindness, respect, peace, pride, hard work and unity.

I am Canadian🇨🇦
