Today was supposed to rain. Yesterday we drove to Ottawa for my Mother’s birthday. Thank you for your wonderful comments. We had a birthday lunch for her. We had diabetic cake and ice cream and the staff at the retirement home led us in the singing of “Happy Birthday”. It was a wonderful day and my mother went out of her way to look fabulous.
I woke this morning expecting rain however the sun fooled the weatherman and we are enjoying an extended summer day. So instead of writing my blog earlier today I recuperated from getting up early and driving yesterday. After lunch D H and I took a walk to the beach. The birds are not singing anymore however the ducks are still paddling and the seagulls are still around.
To show our beautiful un-rainy day D H took these pictures:
One of the many advantages of being retired and not on a schedule is the opportunity to be spontaneous and enjoy the day. I hope you enjoy yours as well.
