Day One – The Sky’s The Limit

After much deliberation, I decided to kick off my June ‘Accentuate the Positive’ blogging challenge with a salute to our province – The Land of the Living Skies (Saskatchewan).

In Saskatchewan, our skies stretch forth as far as the eye can see, unimpeded by mountains, or skyscrapers, or the like. Our winds also blow unimpeded by such natural or man-made windbreaks. Thus, we not only see anything in our skies, chances are it is moving and constantly changing – giving one the impression that they are in fact ‘Living Skies’.

A clear blue sky beaming down on the Jag we used to have. It was gorgeous – the Jag and the sky. πŸ˜‚

Sky in the Water – I think that used to be a songπŸ€”
I love it when that happens. πŸ’ž

One down, twenty nine to go! Have a good day and I hope to see you tomorrow! 🌞

Summer Saturday

It has been a relatively uneventful day today. I was up at six a.m. compliments of Kat – our little dog has to eat.

After coffee and checking out the news (such as it was), I got ready to go shopping with Dan. Our first stop was Superstore. I ran in to the smoke shop to get Dan cigarettes. (I haven’t smoked since 2010 – I should never smoke again but I am keeping my options open). The clerk was none other than Grandpa’s Genie. I ‘accidentally’ left the cigarettes on the counter so Dan would have to run in to see her. 🀣

Genie (& Kat) – such a Grandpa’s girl🐞

We travelled on to Walmart to pick up a few items. There was a big sale on TP. We should now be good through to the next pandemic.

We came home. I changed into shorts and a light top to give Bob the Boulder a bath with the pressure washer. It was supposed to be 31 above (celcius) – it was not.

I froze my butt off and took all the shrapnel I could handle before going in to change – again! I put on a black sweater and pants (the closest I have to a ski-doo suit) poured myself a glass of wine and headed back to the frigid outdoors.β˜ƒοΈ

Sunshine!

There wasn’t a cloud to be seen. It was hot as hell! I powered through the wine and headed back in to change into something cooler while Dan made us icy cold Caesars. 😊

Fortunately we picked up hotdogs and buns for supper. After wine and a Caesar, I am not up to cooking anything too challenging. πŸ˜‰

Bye for now. Wishing everyone a great weekend🌞
