Happy Day!

Be honest!  Did you listen to the music I posted yesterday in my Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry?  Were you tapping your toes?  Singing along?  Hopefully, so!

Sunday morning, I awoke early, once again.  After preparing for my day, I made my way to worship my God.  While I would have liked to have been able to worship at my own church, this wasn't possible. 

Due to having another busy day planned, I needed to be able to worship at an early time, so I went and worshipped at Heritage Park Alliance Church (HPAC), at their 9:00 a.m. service!  This was such a blessing for me, because I do not like to miss out on worshipping God.  After all, my Lord means everything to me!

Afterwards, I bought some books that were on sale in their library and made my way to the cemetary.  As per my normal routine on Sondays, I visited Gordon's grave, that was only about five (5) minutes from church.

From there, I continued along Hwy. #3, to Leamington, where I was spending the day once again, at the Sherk Recreation Centre, with fellow authors.

Not as many authors participated, since on Saturday, not many books were sold, except by me.  Maybe those who didn't attend on Sunday were smarter than the rest of us, because not many books were sold, again.  While each of us sold books, I certainly didn't do as well as on Saturday.

Even so, I was glad I went and participated.

Another thing happened that brightened my Lord's day, though.  My brother B and his girlfriend P, joined me at the centre, in Leamington.

When they walked in, I was so-o very happy to see them!

We all sat around my table, enjoyed a cup of coffee and chatted for a while.  Eventually, I convinced them to join me for supper, at my home.  Believe me when I say, I was happy.  The smile didn't leave my face, all afternoon!

They left the centre and went into Windsor for a while. 

When my time at the centre was completed, I packed up and made my way to Colasanti's Tropical Gardens, located in Kingsville, but definitely on my way home.  Here is a LINK where you can read about this delightful place.

In case you're wondering why I would stop there on my way home, I'll tell you.  It's because, Colasanti's makes the most delicious homemade donuts and apple cider!

When my children were young, we used to go visit there, both summer and winter.  It's a great family place, and has expanded over the years.  In addition to the plants, gardening tools and equipment, petting zoo, birds and other animals that they had, they've added children's rides, mini-golf and more.

In summer, hayrides are available; in winter, sleigh rides take place.

If you get the chance, don't miss it, if you are planning a visit anywhere in Essex County.  You'll be glad you did.

Enroute home, and just up the road, I drove by Jack Miner's.  Here is a LINK where you can investigate all it has to offer.

Even though I had driven by here with customers who were receiving our realtor's 100 mile Peninsula tour (here's a LINK), I found it upsetting to drive by, today. 

Sorry, but I will have to continue this discussion, tomorrow. 


Until next time...
