Feel-good Friday: lighten up

Chanelling Anita Pallenberg

For those of you not familiar, she was the original ROCK CHICK!

A muse ing

Anita Pallenberg, Actress and Longtime Paramour of Keith Richards who passed away in June of this year at the age of 73. I bet she had some good stories to tell being that she was the ‘It’ Girl to the Stones. Why has she not written a book?

How blonde can you be?

You know those blonde jokes…well I think this is as far as I want to go!

Feelin very rock ‘n roll in these photos taken by my hairdresser (who decided to make me even more unnaturally blonder than before) because he felt  I needed some lightening up.

Enjoy your weekend!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feel-good Friday: It’s here!

SUMMER has officially arrived in all its sunny glory.  Here is how I celebrated the very first day.

Not exactly diving into the first day but still enjoying the pool and wondering where have all the ducks gone?

A girly get together for another birthday celebration. L-R Sylvain, Louise #2, Rosa, Louise #1 (birthday girl), hostess Colleen (in her stunning  garden).

Rosa & Jia Jia.  I’m so relieved he didn’t jump fall into the pool like he once did in Las Vegas.

Louise, Colleen, mango cake & local strawberries

How did you celebrate?

Feel-good Friday: impromptu dinners

HAVE YOU EVER

had a friend come over to your home with groceries & wine and make you a nice dinner from scratch? This happens vary rarely if never because I usually don’t like anyone else interfering in the kitchen aside from maybe chopping an onion for me….so it was a very welcome change.  To my credit I made an effort not to worry about which pot they used kitchen control freak that I am and was even nonchalant about a little spill here and there (meaning I did not jump up immediately to wipe it up) and didn’t even mind a bit of a mess.  It was all part of the experience.  What I learned was that it’s not only a nice change to shake up your routine once in a while but extremely pleasant to let someone take over and do something for you where you get to be the guest in your own home.  And what’s more is that I think I can get used to it…should anyone else feel like stepping in.  I highly recommend it.

Enjoy your weekend and the sunshinefeelgoodfriday4

 

Feel-good Friday: Let the Sunshine In

What a difference a day makes!

Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower – Hans Christian Andersen

Good Show yesterday at the Kitsilano Showboat.

Jia Jia had something to smile about – a sunny day with no dog police in sight!

And he could have run all day!

If you want to see the sunshine, you have to weather the storm – Frank Lane

Feel-good Friday: last weekend of

Yippee!

Here are 10 things to feel good about this weekend...besides two glorious days off:

  1. Getting your taxes done (it’s not really feel-good but you will feel better when they’re done).
  2. Something to look forward to – May weather should be drier.
  3. Getting a bike tune-up (I just did) for good weather riding.
  4. I’ve gone a few shades lighter with wispy bangs & rounder sunglasses

    Lighter clothing.

  5.  Change a little something about yourself even if it’s only your hair.
  6. Tulips & Daffodils.
  7. Cherry Blossoms.
  8. Better weather (did I just say that?).
  9. April is from the latin verb “Aperire” which means to open yourself up.  Go for it – you have two more days!
  10. April showers bring May flowers.  It’s a cliché I know but…it’s true.

 Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy whatever is left of April.

Feel-good Friday: bien sur!

Another French Lesson courtesy ofparis3

I don’t know any better way to practice my French other than taking little tips from My Little Paris, a crazy fun blog  and way more French than mine will ever be.  It brings a smile to mon visage every time they post. And girls; OUI just want to have fun.  Oops; better brush up on my waist, I’m behind  (or above depending how you look at it) a few inches.

Fyi: fun is fun in French too.
