Off to the Races

I’m a bit behind on posting but I’ve been busy enjoying the summer*grin*. A couple of weeks ago Candra invited me to go to the horse races- an event I’ve never once thought to attend. It was a beautiful evening & I placed my first ever bets. Pictured below was the race where I had my big win- $27.50 on a $2.00 bet! We were laughing quite hard when my horse came from last place into second. It was my last bet of the day & ended up over $20 to the good. I had no idea the races were so fun; I look forward to attending again.

Another exciting event that has occurred over the summer: the sale of the Rav & the purchase of our ‘new’ Nissan Murano. Weeee. Riding in style- love it. (It was nice to show off to my Aunt who was briefly in town visiting from Saskatoon as well).

The other day on the radio the English DJ mentioned “digestive” biscuits. It reminded me how much I loved these cookies when in England so many years ago. The DJ also reminded me that I had bought some a couple of weeks earlier when I found them on sale. I took a few minutes over a cup of tea the other day to savour the English goodies. Oh the simple things in life.
