Odds and ends July 2010

For some reason, blogger is not allowing me to put text beside each picture, so I am doing it this way, at least for now.

At Pier 8, the sun setting on this very peaceful scene.

Downtown Hamilton, police on horses - something new for the city

Concert at Whitehern - each week a different artist.

I have been just too busy lately to enter anything into my blog so here goes.

My birthday was splendid to say the least. I am blessed with so many friends, I got so many greetings both in person and from cards and on Facebook.

On my birthday itself, some friends took me out as well which was very nice.

All in all, a lovely birthday.

I haven't had time to work on any of my jewellelry projects nor my writing projects as I have been concentrating on friends and getting together with them, both day and evening hours.

It is getting too much for me and I have to slow down a little bit.

Summer is so short here and winter is so long, and I feel that I have to cram in as much as possible in this season before it gets icy underfoot when walking becomes more dangerous.

Last night I spent some time down at Pier 8 with Sarah, my new friend from Kuwait. The sun was setting and I took some wonderful shots of it which I will post.

Today, I really have to concentrate on the apartment and getting things done here. Sunday, another friend is taking me out for lunch which also will be enjoyable.

It is a long weekend here in Ontario so there will be lots of people by the waterfront I am sure.

It is most unfortunate that my new friend Sarah is allergic to cats and cannot come here to visit with me so I can do some of my jewellery work while we are chatting.

Yesterday, another friend and I went up on the 5C bus to Meadowlands and went to Michael's craft store. What an array of goods they have. I found many things there to make jewellery with and that is good for me to know. What fun it was just to look there and then we went for lunch at MacDonalds.

A nice day but busy. I didn't get home till about 9:30.
