Celebrations


Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends

Happy 4th July to my American friends

4th

A day of celebration, family time and relaxation (hopefully).

I took the opportunity of a three day weekend to do some chores (I know but I did relax as well). My list included  a closet clear out & donation to thrift store, clear away all my filing (larger job than expected) and a bottle depot trip and recycling center trip with a stack of cardboard. It is always satisfying to complete chores that seem to pile up unnoticed for some time.

My friend, Linda and I watched the local Canada Day parade from the comfort of our deck and cheered loudly for friends floats and more. And later watched the fireworks. I also visited a friend recovering from a hip operation and my daughter for a short time. And finished one book and am now on the  sequel.

All in all a great weekend.

A Shakespearean Celebration and Prompt…


FunDayI could not pass up the opportunity to share the celebrations planned in the UK for Shakepeare’s 450th birthday! http://www.shakespearesbirthday.org.uk/?page_id=19

The Bard would have been shocked and hopefully pleased, if he were present today with the adoration and celebration in his honor. For those who are curious about William’s life this link is great. http://www.shakespearesbirthday.org.uk/?page_id=88

Shakespearean Quotes:

Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.

Words without thoughts never to heaven go.

Suit the action to the word, the word to the action.

Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice.

Fun Prompt:

In true Shakespearean hommage let us write a sonnet.

Please share yours!
