I love what’s highlighted and I love buffets. I’m feeling lucky to be a mom right about now…along with all the other triggers like giggling children and my kids showing their good manners etc, of course.
The sun doesn’t set until 9 o’clock so we might as well go downtown, shop a little, get some delicious food and enjoy the downtown energy.
The Fernie Pets Society will be hosting a fundraiser on May 9th for SNiP (a program that funds the spaying and neutering of feral cats and subsidizes the cost of fixing domestic ones) where they will be selling baked treats and used books at The Arts Station. If you think you would like to donate some of your special treats or pre-loved books please contact their food coordinator Tanya Carre at firstname.lastname@example.org or if you have books, you can drop them off at Barkside Pets between April 26th and May 8th.
From Fernie Pet’s Facebook page: “Thanks to your generous donations we have been able to fix 160 cats and kittens since beginning the SNiP program in 2013 and are still going strong! Most of these cats have been homeless, this means we have prevented hundreds of unwanted homeless kittens. We have also been able to adopt out 8 homeless cats this year! Jenny, Spicy Meat Ball, Van, Leo, Runty, Mr Stanford Tabbington, Dusty, and Tiny Tina Turner are loving life in their forever homes thanks to our amazing foster parents and Barkside Pets. We could not have accomplished this without your generous support! Thank you!
Please spay and neuter your pets and encourage your friends to do the same. If you have a cat that needs to be fixed please visit www.ferniepets.org for an application.”
The sale is just before Mother’s Day so it might be a good idea to swing by and satisfy someone’s sweet tooth. It being Mother’s Day and my birthday this year, I’m hoping for many sweet treats…and I do enjoy a good book.

My mom just loves seeing pictures of herself (I don’t believe I saw her drivers license picture until I was in my early 20s) so I know my mom will appreciate this photo being posted on this blog. Love you, Mom!
(On the left is my brother Dwight, age 4, and myself, 5 days old. On the right, it’s hard to believe my mom is only around the age of 24 or 25 in this photo – she looks so mature.)
