Thank you to my newest follower Colleen. Hello my fellow Canadian.
A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words. (Kenyan Proverb)
In my last post I wrote about how I was waiting to pick up a table and chairs from the city. I have them home now and I am very happy! I still have the antique dining table and chairs to offload so I haven't got a photo of new set in my home for you yet but I do have this photo of the exact table and chairs I purchased.
I'm sure I will like the set very much. The table is round and they say that round tables are good for smaller spaces. I was also able to gift my friends with a recliner that I wanted to sell. They have need of a recliner so it worked out great!
(Update added later: As an afterthought I figured I should let you know that this purchase is the first furniture purchase I've made for the apartment for about 11 years, with the exception of replacing furniture ruined by the fire. Those costs were covered by the insurance company. I'm working very hard to cut down or cut out other household purchases altogether in my quest for a simple life although my sofa and chair which are almost two decades old may need to be replaced soon. I've been looking at reupholstery, second hand and new options for the sofa and chair. Really I think they need to be replaced rather than reupholstered as they are a little too large for the space.)
I have now finished my 5th full day of the whole body cleanse which I told you about here. I haven't noticed any major changes though I can say the fibre and laxative are keeping me more regular and that is a key benefit for me right now. I do have a few breakouts on my face the past few days but nothing atrocious. I understand that this happens when toxins are being eliminated from the body. I think in another 9 days I will feel a little better, a little lighter somehow, and that is all good.
It snowed yesterday and overnight the night before. This was very surprising after a warm spell but the snow didn't last long. In fact it is all gone today and there is still a gray sky with some light rain falling. I am grateful for rain and warmer weather because it means that spring will come early here and with that the lovely spring blossoms which I love so much.

I may be taking a few days break from posting as I
am busy with a lot of things at the moment.
In the meantime, enjoy your weekend and your
loved ones. I'd love to hear what you have planned.
