Today I am Grateful....for my garden

This week I'm all about my garden.
The front yard; early May.
After a few weeks.

I grew up in a small town and my parents always had a HUGE garden.
I never truly enjoyed yardwork as a child. 

But now...I love it. It's so peaceful. 

Vamp loves to help me dig in the dirt.
So I always make sure she's rewarded with her own patch of catnip!

Vamp returning from her rounds.

Supergrover keeps an eye on the rhubarb and bird feeders.

I have a small yard and this year I did a lot of research into small area and container gardening...and it's been working pretty well; the furry woodland creatures have been mostly leaving things alone and the plants are growing hardy and strong. 

Portable pumpkin patch! 
 The backyard has a small plot of earth and this year, there's onions, zucchini, cucumber, thyme, parsley and sage.

No matter how hard the work, it's rewarding and wonderful to be able to grow your own food.
 To dig into the warm earth and smell the loamy goodness.
To harvest onions and carrots and snip the fresh basil....mmm. Nothing better.


Zukes and Cukes!

Tomatoes, Lettuce, Spinach and Radishes

Corn and Taters!

I do love my Morning Glories.

I love the internet. Do you remember the world before the internet?
 Seems so long ago....actually looking up information in the library....or the dictionary...
....actually CALLING someone on the phone....

Anyway. I love the internet :) I love how it can really bring people together for (or against) a common cause. 

And....I love the memes.

 I regularly post a bunch on my Facebook page...check out the fun and add some of your own!

Mmm. Mr. Darcy.

I love Downton Abbey. I miss that show!

I really did LOL at this one.

One of my favourite movies of all time!

Aaaaand...we're done.

I am grateful for....My Work

I think that in this insane world, sometimes we need to sit back
 amidst all this rush rush instant ping now hurry up ...and just....sit still and be grateful. 

To realize the little things that are actually big things. 

This week, I am SO grateful and thankful for my career.

I have toured for over 15 years with my show, The Limeybirds

I'm a professional perfomer - a singer, actor, dancer, model, you name it.

I've been super fortunate in my career to be able to entertain all over the world.

I love every moment of being on stage. 

It's been great fun

Hopefully inspiring future generations

having WAY too much fun making fun of ourselves and each other

Mostly, staying out of trouble
Transitioning into film and shooting commercials

Travelling to NYC to see Hamilton...woot!

Working live interactive Murder Mysteries with some of the most INCREDIBLY talented people

My 'husband' and me, the craz

From playing a terrible senator who kills for fun

To a Proud Parent

To a naughty wench with wicked a capella wit

To Billy Sue in the Poodle Skirts

The Dread Pirate Bunnie

I've loved every moment. 

Being grateful for my adorable agent, my supportive husband, and everyone who said "yes, you can!" over the years.
Thanking the powers that be for the talent and drive that keeps me going.

..........grateful for....My Town

Okay so technically, Brampton isn't really a town.
It's city. With over 640,000 people in it.
That's a lot.
And we're part of the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) here in the southern part of Ontario.
So, thats like, another 6-9 million people. Thats a lot of people.
But the cool thing is, Brampton is like a small town.
We can go places and run into people we know.
I like that.

Hey look, it's the Mayor Linda J!!
Farmers Market
My street; the heritage section. Brampton's as old as Canada is.
"New" City Hall
Chingcousy (Sheen-coo-see) Park
At Ching Park

Downtown Brampton,  Garden Square. Always all sorts of things going on down here in the Summer.

"Old" City Hall
 Canada is celebrating being 150 years old as an official Nation! Woot!
 Farmers markets, Winter Markets, Horse drawn carriage rides, Bands, entertainment, movie nights...
and two of the BEST ice cream shops around. Pizza Cones (what?!? YASSSS Pizza cones), amazing restaurants, B-town is the place to be.
I like it, anyway.
