For whatever weird reason this morning I woke up thinking of girls names that were actually names of flowers. For instance, Rose, then Iris, Violet, Lily and Daisy, Willow, Jasmine, Ivy, Heather, Hyacinth, Holly, Poppy and a few others... in one English program I watch the star's real name is Honeysuckle, and then there is Primrose, Pansy and Petunia. Names sure can be weird and wonderful at times ..... Back home in Australia I worked with a lady who had three daughters .. their names were Shelley, Sandy and Coral. (She must have liked the beach) ... lol ....

My dear friend died last night and I will miss her so much. I was so looking forward to taking her out for a drive to a tea shop when she felt better .. she was so pleased for me when I passed my driving test and got my licence. She loved her garden, her dog and cat, visiting for cups of tea and cakes and of course her wonderful family .... my life here in Canada won't be quite the same without her. Rest in Peace dear lady. You will be sadly missed.

A birthday greeting to add to your stash... :-) I love the colours in this one. Click on the image to see it larger and save it from there.
Surprise this morning to find three little deer in the field at the bottom of our yard.. they were standing there looking and listening to my old Dozer dog who I am pretty sure they remember from last year. They weren't scared of him and I think he was more interested in getting my attention than really bothering with them. He's such a dear old soul and I love him so much. He loves it when I take notice and when I go out onto the deck he has to put on a performance to show me he's "doing his job" of barking at everything that moves.
I watched the 2nd Presidential debate last night .. and hated the format of the show. I'll certainly be glad when the election is over ..... I hope Mitt Romney wins .. I'm so sick and tired of seeing and hearing Obama on tv. I was stunned the other day when I read that he had actually phoned a radio station so he could go on the air and talk about American Idol. Maybe he should take a lesson from my sweet Dozer dog .. who does his job ...

Gosh what a rude man Joe Biden is. After watching him in the Vice Presidential debate last night with Paul Ryan I was appalled at his antics. His constant interruptions, his phony and inappropriate laughter, smirking, were terrible. He interrupted Mr Ryan 80 times ... If I was at a dinner party with someone like him and he was carrying on like he did last night in front of millions of people, I would simply get up and walk away. Urgh!!

A pretty image I made today. I love the sepia colours ... its larger in its original size so click on it if you wish to save it from there.
Gosh cold day today. No matter what I did or what I wore I couldn't seem to get warm so perhaps I'm getting a cold or a chill ... I think I will just hop into my bed early tonight and read my kindle. I am on the latest book by Anne Perry who writes wonderful mysteries in the Victorian era. Her descriptions bring it all to life ...

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian pals... lovely day to celebrate family and friends. The sun is out, the leaves are falling from the trees and the beautiful colours surround us. My little squirrel friend is working overtime stashing away the peanuts I've been giving him. He must have filled up one of his stashing places because he's now going up and over the branches and down to another spot near the ground. Dear little fellow works so hard. He does it for hours. I guess he's having a happy thanksgiving day too finding all the food I've put out for him.... :-)
