Today is the last Sunday of August and i have to work. I have worked every single Sunday
this summer. I really dislike having to work this day. There is something about working on
a Sunday that i find disturbing. I know so many of us have to do it but it would be nice to have the odd one off once in awhile. To me i like to be with my family. I hate leaving my son
for the day . There are so many things going on right now that i would love to take him to.
But do you know what really drives me crazy on a beautiful, sunny Sunday when i am
rushing around to get ready to go to work?!!
Having to constantly step over this
Our relaxing, lazy, grumpy but oh so funny Acoya..
I swear he does this on purpose... rub it in Acoya ...rub it in!
He is getting so old his wiskers have turned white.
Wishing you all a blessed fun Sunday!

I found this adorable costume bracelet in the quaint town of Coombs. I couldn't pass it
up and thought it would make the perfect little gift...
The sweet owl hanging from the bracelet seemed fitting for this new season of school
which doesn't start till the first week of September in Canada. The beads are the prettiest
shade of blue too!

Speaking of school Sam and i just started back to school shopping today!
Do you know how many shoes stores we went to trying to find these DC running shoes
in his size???? OMG worse than a woman!!! Tomorrow will be spent buying school
supplies. Hard to believe my little boy is starting Middle School!!
Have a wonderful day!

About a lovely hour's drive from home. It was the perfect day to go.
I had to share with you this fabulous Italian restaurant. The building is so out of character
for the West Coast. This building looks like something from Europe. No contemporary, west coast design with plank siding. Just pure stucco gorgeousness!!
Enjoy the photos of this captivating building!! This staircase leads to the upstairs of the building which sells awesome chinese furniture..
all these plants and statues are for sale...
The outside terrace. This is where we dined. All around the terrace are bushes of lavender.
The front entrance to the restaurant... Cuckoos it is called. Great Italian food!
Antique shops in Coombs...
The famous market that has an outdoor restaurant. Now look closely at the roof
it has grass on it... you know why?

I love throwing myself into rearranging a room or even a shelf.
I've been known to do this at friend's homes when visiting!
My first day off and there i went changing everything around...
glad i had the house to myself.
This one my mom bought from an estate auction when i was a little girl. I remember
vividly when she proudly brought it home. I fell in love with it as a young child.
It was from a mansion in gorgeous Niagara-on-the-Lake. Anyone familiar with this area
knows it is home to magneficent homes and what Winston Churchill claimed to be the
prettiest town in Canada.
Everytime my husband and i have moved he knows this is the one thing to be handled
with extreme care!!! I decided to place it in the living room so i can enjoy it everyday.
of our lovely day trip to Coombs!
Thanks for visiting!!

right at 3pm too. There is a beautiful apple tree beside our courtyard and it is over loaded
with these lovely green apples. I don't know about eating them but i just had to bring
them in the house for display.
I love this shade of green.
so i didn't feel guilty about spending what little time i have this weekend doing a post.
Hope to catch up with all you soon!

For now i have them on my sleeping porch. They will make the rounds in my house until
i decide where i like them best.
didn't get them. I always regretted it. So when i came across them again i bought them.
Don't you just hate it when you don't get something and then regret it forever?
...that's okay right??
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and hope to visit you all soon!
