Happy Birthday to the Babyest Seester of Them All

Seen on FB
Now what will I leave you with today, as I am hot to get out the door?

It is my sister Joan's 46th birthday. I called. She is busy collecting happy. She has a good friend visiting from Saskatoon, they've been out for breakfast, done some window shopping, were heading out for frozen yogurt and plan to go out for supper. The only thing missing is her two adorable sisters, I say!

I haven't bought her a gift, but as I sit here, all slathered up with a mosquito-repelling lotion that you could probably eat, it occurs to me that this might make a perfect birthday present. They tell us that in Kelowna they don't have mosquitoes, so when they come out here they are a bit discomfited.

This is my first time trying this lotion; I'll let you know if it makes any difference. I do smell like a lemon, but on the other hand I haven't seen more than one mosquito yet this year. So it's a bit early to tell.


  1. I do love that planter - it would probably be easy to make. I had 2 bites yesterday when out. Arm swelling, what is your magic lotion?


    1. It's lemongrass lotion, purchased from
      I did get a mosquito bite yesterday while walking on the road, but it was in a spot I probably didn't reach while applying the lotion.
      I'm not giving up on it yet!
