Because it's like watching a mini Trump campaigne- all the bull- I can't choose between the 3 evils. As for Kathleen Wynee - she's out - #sorrynotsorry Kathleen! Do you believe that is how she starts a debate #sorrynotsorry - in other words 'oh well, screw you tax payers'... I mean that's what I got from #sorrynotsorry, she is not. The other woman running - why grace this page with her name... I feel is equally as 'disillusioned's Kathlen.
How's your HYDRO bill Ontario? The past hydro increase has forced some to decide between food and light. Fact.
About that 'Poppy remark.. my dad was in the war and a legion member until he died, my mom still is - she carries the flag in all the parades, my parents both contributed much - mostly time - the legion was their social life and my mom has been a Poppy Promoter - I got one of the best bird feeders -my 'poppy feeder'- they sold to raise money for the legion . The poppy is a symbol of remembrance for all who lost their LIVES - it's as symbolic as any flag and world known to suggest we toss them in the trash - is one of the trashiest political remarks I've heard... and to have someone who puts 'Hitler quotes' on their face book page? Pro-Hitler. Yikes. It's just a Poppy? It's just a confederate flag. It's just a statue..
It's just a leaf.
Symbols are powerful.
Doug. I'm guess I'm in favour of Doug... I feel his brother was a good Mayor- personal life adventures aside, and I believe he will try to be also for Toronto and his brother. I think he would do the best job. Doug it is... because what are the options? Not vote? If you don't take the time to vote - you not expressing your wishes. Many say voting does not matter- it does to me... I know that I've tried to make a difference with my opinion, and that is better than doing nothing.They all sound a little Trumpish' best way is to address them, call them out as he is called out on his daily lies.
It's HOT - hot, hot. Even the girls are finding it hot, we had to come in for a break.
Painting at the gazebo season. I had a friend the other day sitting in the gazebo and she saw my bee & almost slapped him! LOL - I was about to slap her! I blurted out at her swinging arm - That's BEE - just say "Hi Bee!" She looked at me- knows me- I'm not joking and said "Hi Bee." Bee looked at her and flew off. WTF people- LEAVE the bees alone- you don't hurt them - they won't hurt you. The only times I've ben stung - I brought it on.
I am working on a large piece for a balcony- for privacy. I was able to design what ever I want so I'm having some HOT tropical fun.. the next few days - it's what I'll be sharing, I'm working on several projects at once big board outside - Gouache on inside. :D Some might want to try something like this - Please, keep in mind I have permission from the landlord too, my contractor & I have discussed in detail how to attach it to the balcony. A new buildings gone up across the street the balcony has open (bars) at one end - this Trompe l'oeil will bring a bit of fun & a lot of privacy, sun & weather protection with VERY little space taken. I'm amazed how few use their balconies- occasionally on PIN I see some incredibly decorated little places of Bliss! Why not?
Get outside. Eat, dine, read, chill out on your balcony.
I was outside today in my office - with a pool ;) dogs, not caring about anything listening to the birds and I have to say- those who KNOW me know I'm not joking when I say:
Prayer changes things. Prayer & giving thanks for what we already have.
I'm thankful to God & to Norm he's had part in building me this lovely little oasis.
It really is a little piece of heaven on earth. .. missing my son from time to time but it's getting easier - easier because he messages me a 'hello' at least once a day. The rest- is what it is.. I choose to focus on all that's going to go RIGHT. A few photos of the process below! I anticipate being done by the weekend! Fingers crossed.
With TLC & THC
