All these photos were taken on Friday March 18th in Stanley Park.

And once again I find myself with the need to de-fluff and while we were in a gift shop by the Totems in Stanley Park Dear called me over to a case to show me this…

If it wasn’t so pricey I would have bought it! I’m losing the same weight I lost before our son Dan’s wedding last year. Ha! Anybody else out there find yourself gaining, losing, and gaining again? I’m not trying to be skinny just want to have a bit of room to spare in my jeans and tops and I don’t want to go up another size! I joined a gym on Friday with my Silver Sneakers and even made it through a Zumba class. Met some nice gals who let me know about other good classes at the gym. On Monday I meet with a personal trainer for an assessment. Scary but good.

We had a productive weekend again with mowing, weeding, and moving vehicles into and around Dear’s shop. Today after church we had a birthday brunch for our son-in-law, Andrew. His birthday is on Tuesday. Josh and Laura joined us for Eggs Benedict, Hash Browns, and Fruit. For the birthday cake we had cinnamon rolls, much appreciated by Andrew. We have a quiet week coming up. Hope you all have a good Sunday and start to a new week!

    • Elizabeth, I wasn’t aware of the black squirrels until you made your first comment or I would have hunted one down! 🙂

  1. I love the idea of a birthday brunch…and yours sound yummy! Happy birthday to Andrew!

    The battle of the fluff is ongoing here as well. Ugh. Just yesterday, Ron and I were discussing purchasing an exercise bike for the new house, as it has a basement. I have never wanted to take up valuable decor space with an unsightly bike (priorities, you know 😉 ), but now we have no excuses!

  2. How lovely! I always loved Canada…Sigh. I am trying to defluff too. If only I had more willpower. Good luck 🙂 You sound like you have a good plan!
    Blessings,

  3. I smiled to see Stanley Park through American eyes ! so nice !
    and defluffing ? I always wish it was as easy to take off as it is to put on… 😦

  4. Those blossoming trees in the park are magnificent, Ellen! We have a similar looking park nearby in our town but the flowers won’t be blooming for another month–more snow may be on the way–oy vey!

    I have the same problem –lose, gain, lose gain. I admit I like to eat, but I also try to keep as active as possible. I’ve joined a gym but frequent babysitting of grandchildren means I’m not there consistently. We have to try our best to keep those pounds off–we can do it!!
