Our Secret

By Belinda

I just got off the phone with Rob, whom I had called to wish "happy Easter." 

We chatted for about 20 minutes before I mentioned the main thing on my mind (I know, such self control;) the laptop.

"Oh,  no, Belinda" he said, "I didn't get it yet."

"Phew," I thought; but,"Well, you don't want to rush into these things," was what I said. :)

Rob explained (unnecessarily) all the reasons why he hadn't got one yet,  and also mentioned that he hasn't yet got the printer that he bought to use with his camera, up and running yet. 

"Well, these things take time," I said (truly agreeing with the statement this time!)

As we casually chatted, he said that our friends Chris, Eileen and Nel are coming down from Kendal to see him next Saturday.

"I don't know why they are coming," he joked.

I said, "Oh, yes, for your birthday!" 

He laughed.

We ended with me saying that of course I'll be calling him later this week.

Now, I'm still a little tidge worried. He knows me SO well. Both he and Paul are able to intuitively pick up on things that amaze me. We have this crazy thing going on where we read one another's minds before we say a thing, and often start talking about things that the other person is thinking. :)

Does he know? Is my brain safe from his radar?? Only 6 days from now, I will let you know!

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.

He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
