Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone. Did you all have a nice weekend? For some Canadians the weekend is still going on because of Family Day, which is not a national statutory holiday and only celebrated in a few provinces in the country, one of them being Ontario where I live. In any case, some lucky folks are enjoying an extra day off.

I received some news from my university-attending daughter on Saturday. She signed her first lease for an apartment, which means she'll be staying year round in Ottawa while she studies. And earlier in the month she informed me that she had received a scholarship that she hadn't applied for from a Canadian media and broadcasting company (not sure if I should share the name, so I won't), which means that she is currently the most outstanding journalism student at her university. These are very exciting times for her and I'm brimming with pride!

Okay, so now that I've shared my happy news, let's laugh it up...







Have a good one!

    LOL with the missing sock coming back as a Tupperware lid, I think there's a lot of good theory in that.

  8. I usually get my oil changed at Sears. We walk a little distance down the parking lot to the mall, and by the time we're done, my car has long since finished.

    1. Thanks, Natalie. And yes, it is a bit sad that she'll be away full time. But I'm also so happy that she's able to do this. This demonstrates that she is confident and eager to go out and live her life. And that is a very good thing.

  16. What a wonderful accomplishment for your daughter! So happy for you! And for her! Hope you had a good Family Day, we're bracing for a snow storm tonight! Which would have just been more of the same last winter but right now seems like a terrible imposition!! :)

    1. Thanks, Francie! I'm so proud of her. She will have very fond memories of these years.

      We are having a snowstorm as I write this. Yes, last year it would have been just another one of these days but this year it is an imposition because winter has been so easy up until now. We've been spoiled!

  18. HOW WONDERFUL, she takes after her mom;) burst out laughing at the jokes, especially the last one, it's so darn true, I vote that people who have garage sale bring out bowls and tops that don't fit, chances are some will finally have the right fit. Atta Girl!

    1. That's a great idea, Lorraine! Finding new homes for those bowls and tops that have none :)
