I have handmade a Swarovski pearl, crystal and silver bead bracelet today and I am happy with the look. The set will make a beautiful accessory for the bride, member of the bridal party, the graduate or for the person celebrating a special day. Available at PinkDaisies.

Every day on my way home I drive down a small hill and come upon this patch of grass than runs down into this bit of water. As the spring turns through to summer I’m fascinated at a transition. This year I hope to catch some pictures of what I see. All cooperating that is…
April 27th 1st Shot
Twice I drove past the spot when I should have had my camera, only to rush back with it and it was too late. Today I was able to get the 2nd picture. (pictures taken through my car window).
May 6 – 2nd shot
The prediction of a rainy weekend wasn’t so. It was beautifully sunny but a bit cool instead. Saturday, Marc and I went to the Toronto Good Food Festival. For $12.00 each we sampled all kinds of foods and drinks and watched demonstrations and came home with coupons and recipes galore. The free products/coupons exceeded the admission price. Its pretty bad to have sampled so much that at the end you can’t sample one more thing….. Fun though!
Saturday evening we rented “Anger Management” with Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler. It is a few years old and we had never seen it. We both thought it was good, light fun. For dinner we had decided fish was in order so we chose fresh Talapia fish. We brushed the fresh fillets with a mixture of mayonnaise and lemon. Then we combined bread crumbs, salt, pepper and onion powder and sprinkled it over the fish that was in a pan sprayed with Pam. We baked it for 30 minutes. It came out so tasty and flakey. We also made twice baked potatoes (we were given 2 potatoes at the Toronto Good Food Festival). After baking them we sliced the potato lengthwise and scooped out the potato. We mashed that with sour cream, butter, milk, chopped green onions and grated cheddar cheese. We scooped it back into the skin and topped with more grated cheese and baked them again. Oh my how very tasty they were.
Do you make smoothies? We enjoy them more frequently on the weekends these days. They are so easy and so yummy and good for you too. THATs what I like.
This was the delicious end result. I just realized all the ingredients in their packaging are on the French side in my pictures. As you may know we are required to have English and French writing on our packaging.
After a leisurely morning a call from son #1, (Geoff), his wife Robyn and Madeline came with a suggestion they would stop at the store and drop over for lunch. Lipton’s Chicken Noodle soup was quickly cooking on the stove. I made a salad. They came armed with delicious breads, cold cuts and cheese. We had ice cream and fresh pineapple pieces for dessert. It was a lovely, short, unplanned visit. Those are often the sweetest.
After washing up the dishes again I drove to see Son #2, Richard for a bit. He was busy making dinner. I sat on a stool at the counter and watched as he mastered their dinner. And to think that I’d once been worried because he didn’t show any interest in cooking. I had wondered how he would ever survive when he was out on his own. Time to focus on other issues because he was clearly enjoying himself as he contemplated his next moves and bowls and knives and dinner ingredients.
