I Am No Longer Homeless...

Finally I made a decision!

Here is the big news…sit down (especially if you are an old friend who really knows me)…I bought a house in this little prairie city called Swift Current.  Tada!  Here I am!  I made a commitment…finally!

It needs Sarah’s touch in the decorating realm.  I mighty be knocking out a few walls and putting hardwood throughout.  The kitchen needs some work.

But I love the location close to the parks and green spaces and swimming pool.  The town has a vibrancy uncommon in many small towns.  And I can drive to Calgary in 5 hours or Saskatoon in 2 ½ hours…both cities that I love. 

And last but certainly not least, I love the sunsets, the sunrises, the freshness of the air, the blackness of the night sky, the slowness of the traffic and the people who want to get to know me.  It is my home province and regardless of my straying from the fold, I am home again.


Now, I just have to break the news to Miss Sugar.  I don’t know if she is ready to settle down yet.  She is a bit of a city gal.

  7. Looks to me like Miss Sugar is happy right there, because you have a store that has the right stuff: a bag with strings on it!

  11. Thank you for all your good wishes! The encouragement is good! Last night I had nightmares (weird dream about a snake and maybe it ate Miss Sugar and losing my car in a carwash)! It must be the stress of this big decision...but weird dreams. Tonight I was invited to join a group to go to a hockey game! Surprise to me that this young team (oldes is 20) were from all over - one from Texas and one from Prague, plus all over Canada. They just go where they can join a good team for the love of the game.
