Hi There to everyone reading ~The Seeker~ this week. My, The Spring-like weather has been wonderful this week for us. Hasn’t It??? Tis the time to think about getting rid of or packing away all of the Winter stuff and getting the Spring & Summer stuff out of storage and or time to GO SPRING SHOPPING!!!
Tip of the Week: You Know You Are Absolutely Right. It is much easier to eat poutine and hamburgers then it is to run on the treadmill or walk down a pathway. It is easier to turn to chocolate cake, cookies or even to ice cream rather then to turn to people for support. It is easier to say,”I Quit or I Give Up,” then to say” Damn It, I Can Do This!!!” So you know what??? I am not going to tell you week after week that you can do this… If YOU Don’t Believe You Can…Then You Can’t!!! That is the Honest Truth!!! You Need to do this for YOU! If YOU don’t want it enough, then you sure as heck won’t achieve it!!!! So, if you choose the “Easy Way Out” then you will always be in the same spot that you have always been in…at the same job that you dislike, at the same weight that makes you unhappy, or in the same loveless or unhappy relationship that you should have left long ago. You do realize that it is YOU that is hurting YOURSELF!!! I don’t and won’t want to tell you it was going to be easy. What I do want to say is that it will be Worthwhile and Life Changing. Think About It!!!
John and I went to ~A Night In Hollywood~, The Oscar’s After Party Gala that was held at the Civic Complex last Saturday night. This was a fund raising event for the many Children’s Mental Health Programs at the Cornwall Hospital. The night began with us tasting delicious appetizers, followed by a four course gourmet supper that featured Filet Mignon and JUMBO shrimp done by the kitchens of ~La Cuisine Volante~. All the while listening to Robert Cote playing beautiful, soft jazz music. During the dessert we had the pleasure of listening to a couple of speakers that shared information about Mental Health issues. It was quite informative and I went away from this evening understanding more about Mental Health issues that are right here in Cornwall. John and I got up to dance to the dancy tunes played by the ~Alison Wonderland~ band. They sounded better then ever!!! The food, the decor, the music, the lighting and the service was all professionally done and made for a most satisfactory evening for both John and I and everyone else that attended. Thanks to my sweet friend, Patti Edwards for inviting John and I to be her guests for this wonderful Gala.
Item of the Week: I have choosen a black, leather-like coat with a beautiful, leopard print lining. I bought it from the ~Agape Centre~ for ONLY $18.00!!! I love how it keeps me warm and on how the leopard print looks against my face. Please check out the different thrift stores here in the Cornwall and in the S.D.& G. areas to find your very own Unique Treasures. Until Next Week… Happy Shopping.
This Saturday, March the 12th I am planning on going to a FUN-filled event. There is going to be another Drag Queen Show at ~The Vu Night Spot~ right here in Cornwall. The doors open at 7 p.m. & the show starts at 8. There will be a $5.00 cover charge. It is located at 113 1/2 Pitt St. (behind Kastner’s.)
