Here it is Monday already! I missed blogging on the weekend, but I have a really, really good reason.
Friday at 3:00 PM my doorbell rang. When I went to the door who should be standing there but … my daughter who lives in Alberta!! She came home for a ten-day visit, a surprise to everyone except her oldest sister who helped in the planning. 🙂 That’s neat because on her last trip home (in April) it was that sister who was the only one NOT to know she was coming since it was a surprise for her special birthday event. What a lovely treat to have her home. 🙂
It was a busy weekend, including a family event at the cottage to welcome into the ‘clan’ my sister-in-law’s fiance’; their upcoming wedding is in October. It was after receiving the invitation to Sunday’s special occasion that my daughter started making plans to come home again. She had been blessed to get a promotion with pay increase at work which enabled her to make two trips home this year, the first time she’s been able to do that since moving to Alberta six years ago.
Sunday was a gorgeous day for family and feasting (including lobsters and muscles on the menu), and then my beloved and I went canoeing for a little while on the calm lake. I needed that.
So … all the above, including reading to review, and I missed blogging – but with good reason, don’t you agree? 🙂
Now, this post was originally going to be on the weekend and about this fun quiz I would like you to try. The question is: What magical creature are you? I don’t know if I should tell you what I am according to that. 😉 Funny.
Do try the quiz and leave a message to share what magical creature you are. 🙂
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
Yikes! I’m a Kracken! I wonder if it has anything to do with a week of deadlines and the anticipation of my first back-to-teaching meeting being tomorrow. Hmmm. I’d better keep a low profile. 🙂
haha I don’t even know what a Kracken is. But I apparently am an ogre, and a green one at that! hilarious!
Thanks for sharing, Heather.

How wonderful to see your daughter again. Where in Alberta does she live? I’m from Medicine Hat but lived in Calgary for 6 years before moving to the west coast. Sounds like an ideal weekend to me.
Darlene, she lives and works in Grande Prairie and is doing quite well, although the distance from family is hard.
Yes, it was a fun weekend. 🙂 Thanks for your comment.

haha Sure wish I could see these other magical creatures!
Thanks for doing the quiz, David, and sharing about it. ((hugs))
I heard that Cassie was home. Say hi for me. I am a Griffin, but could have been a Mermaid, depending on my ‘spirit guide’. (I tried it both ways.)
yes, she is, and she says hi back.
A Griffin, huh? A Mermaid sounds lovely. I tried it with two different choices, too, but I still came out as an Ogre, a green one but kind. 🙂
Haven’t yet taken the quiz, but just wanted to say hi, and your blog is lovely. So nice to “meet” you and thrilled for you to have such a nice visit with your daughter. 🙂
Hi, Julie! Welcome to my blog! 🙂
Thank you for your kind words.
I just was out for sushi with my girls. Fun.
Thanks for your visit and comment. I hope you come back. Blessings.
A unicorn! Strong, pure, and true, you are a unicorn, the most common magical creature there is. While many people have claimed sightings of you through the centuries, you remain just elusive enough to keep the mystery alive. Keep doing what you’re doing and your popularity will remain strong.
ohhh! that sounds lovely! Thanks for trying the quiz.
Welcome to my blog, Zee.
Better than an ogre, anyway lol. My pleasure 🙂
Yay! What a great surprise! I’m glad you had fun! 😀 I started out thinking about how I liked griffins, and, it turns out, I AM one! YAY! 😀 (oh, and a Kraken is a giant squid)
Thanks, Erik. 🙂
A Griffin might be Okay to be. 🙂
A giant squid? Now that’s interesting info, thanks. But I’m still a kind, green Ogre. 😉
