Casa Loma


Hello :)!!!

I am back home after a week off, and I must say right off that I missed you…yes you and especially YOU. It feels goods to be back home and here where I belong.

I had fun while away and even got used to having those amazing writers write on my blog. Many thanks again to them all for their generous post offerings and keeping you all very entertained. They have set the standards so high now and I don’t know that I have anything to measure up to what they all did last week. I shall try…hard!

Thanks to you all as well for reading, interacting with them, and stopping by their blogs to show them some love and support. THANK YOU!!! Please continue to do so.

It was a good time away, not the typical vacation I am used to considering there are toddlers in the mix now but it was very much fun all the same. I am grateful we had the time away, and glad to be back just in time to enjoy the Olympics and this feeling of worldwide togetherness. Go Team Nigeria, Team USA, Team Great Britain, and Team World!!!

Thank you all again so much for stopping by while I was away…I read some of your posts as much as I could, tried to stay away but couldn’t :). Sincere gratitude and appreciation to all the very talented and uniquely gifted writers who shared their works with us all.

Have a wonderful and very safe week. God bless

Much Love!!!

This vacation was good
Though there was little to no rest
And definitely not enough sleep
But truth is I have never been a big sleeper
So it was still a good vacation
Even though I didn’t stop by nifty little cafes
As I typically do on many vacations
To sip on hot and foreign cocoa
With fine dark chocolate marble cakes
It was still a good vacation
For there was reading
Lots of it and writing too
New discoveries
Books… and oh did I mention writing
And food
Yes there was lots of that
So you see even though there wasn’t any rest
And only little sleep…
There was family fun…lots of it
And that always makes for a good vacation

Wouldn’t you agree?

      • And big hugs to you too and to those beautiful little girls — they are gorgeous. You’re blessed to have them. As far as how I’m doing — today I wonder, ‘What the heck did I do in a past life to be in this position?’ Ah well, this too shall pass. Thanks for asking. I’ll live. Until I die. Tee he!

      Sure glad to be back with you as well. Thank you so much, very kind of you to say.

Hopefully i can get around to downloading all these pictures soon. How have you been?
