A Moment in Time






We were in the car heading to Montreal and chatting / joking about 'stuff'.  When W said "you broke a protocol".  My jaw dropped.  Protocol??  

W said "aren't you supposed to have something around your neck?"  

My fingers fluttered upward to discover my neck was bare.  In my mind's eye I could see my collar sitting on the shelf in the bathroom where I place it safely each time I have a shower.  I had been rushing and forgotten.

I felt naked the whole day.  

He noticed!  He cared!

First thing I did when I got home was fasten his collar around my neck.  I AM His - now and forever,

My Vice

Yesterday I had a check up with our family doctor.  Had good and bad news - what else is new (le sigh)........ I am healthy - except my blood sugars are borderline.  But when I told him about the gym and trying to eat healthier he said that should do it... and not to worry (Does he remember who he is talking to??? lil miss worry??)  Then we discussed my "female problems" which haven't improved since the biopsy - and subsequent medication.

He actually asked if I could just "live with it".. and I said "no not really.  Just give me some pills like the last time (8 years ago)."  But he thought maybe I should see a gyno (insert sad face).  And then mumbled something about some irregularities in the pathology report.  HUH??? that didn't actually sink in till I was in the car coming home.... so no I didn't ask for clarification.  BUT then he said it would probably be a couple of months before I heard from the new doc........... and then he did think I could just live with it right??? so how serious can this "irregularity" be?!

BUT today's entry is entitled "My Vice" - yay I know ME have a vice - not possible!!  I am such a "good girl".  But yeah I have a vice............ I LOVE casinos - and the slot machines......... which is all I can afford really..... slot machines I mean.



So when I got home from the doctor - W and I took off to the casino.  We have one about 30 minutes away.... and we go about once a month.  But W is very firm - very firm!  I get to take $20 to play the slots and when it is gone that's it no more.   

Most of the time I am done in under 10 minutes (I wouldn't have any luck if it wasn't for bad luck!!)

But yesterday after my second pull of the lever I won my $20 back and more!!  W suggested I cash out and pocket my $20 and only play with my winnings.... which I did... surprise surprise I won enough money to treat us both to a nice lunch at a nearby English Pub.  

What fun we had!!!

One of my Favourite Things

This might sound just a tad morbid to some of you - but one of my favourite things is to go walking in old cemeteries.... and as luck would have it ...we have an old cemetery right down the road from us.

Yesterday after I had finished at the gym I headed over to the cemetery to shoot some pictures for my photography class.  The theme this week is light and shadows.... Here are just some of my favourite shots............


 





now I just have to select the ones I like the best from the 40 or 50 total shots............

No Purpose?

Yesterday when I got home from Yoga I collapsed (as usual) in my chair in the family room and picked up my lap top.....

When I opened it there was a blue envelope wedged inside.

I opened the envelope to find a card that said


  Inside it said.................



Yeah it had a purpose!!
