Riley now twelve Years old, only a little bit shorter then my 5'5", Ace of a Hockey Player, and from what I have heard also starting to be a "hit" with the girls !!! Oh my .... lol. My brother Al had brought Riley around this morning for me so I could see him in person, instead of putting him on the school bus. Once kids get a certain age, they really don't want to be hanging around us Aunts, Uncles and other older people in the family, so I am sure the drop-in with my hugs and a kiss had been quite enough for him for one day.
Enjoy them while they are younger, as it doesn't take long until they are spread up in height and gone out into the World. My baby boy is going to be 29 years old this year!
Once Riley had been here and gone, Rob and I got ready to head out for a little shopping over to Owen Sound. We were going to hit up Walmart, Food Basics and No Frills for a couple of deals. We needed Dog Food, so we thought we would make a bit of a shop out of it as well, since prices at the big box stores are generally much cheaper then our local Foodland store.
All done our shopping, I had Rob stop at the Falls on the way out of Owen Sound, just before the Springmount turnoff to where we head back North up Highway 6, homeward bound.
It didn't take us too long to get back home, where Bandit and Mercedes had to be let out, groceries taken in to be put away, and Dinner to be started. Since I had made Chicken Wraps and Salad yesterday, today I used up the remainder of the Chicken in a Chicken Pot Pie using the Bisquick Recipe off the box. This is one of Rob's favorites when it comes to "chicken".
"I took this picture of my piece of Chicken Pot Pie, however Rob thought his piece was more uniformed and perfect then mine, so he thought I had best take a picture of his too. LOL ..... this is the reason behind the two pictures shown here."
Here is the link to this Easy Chicken Pot Pie Recipe:
Finally Dinner was done and over with, dishes washed and draining, when I got to sit down for a little bit before I decided it was time to get into our bedroom to start decluttering my dresser drawers.

Oh dear I got off track there for a moment, now didn't I? Back to? oh yes, I believe I was decluttering my bedroom dresser drawers, *sigh* ....
What a total relief getting our whole bedroom "purged" of stuff no longer fitting or needed! I think one needs to get into the habit of when purchasing a new clothing item, thinking about purging an old. And really now, how long had I held onto clothing items that used to fit me 15 years ago (most of which were purged last Spring) ? How silly of me ! A Size 6 again? I think NOT ....
Tomorrow brings us to the 2nd Week of Carla's Decluttering Challenge from over at My 1/2 Dozen Daily, along with a surprise mini-challenge she has not yet disclosed.
This also brings me to Carla having a "Mug Rug" giveaway yesterday, asking everyone to leave a comment on one nice thing they had done that day. My comment had been ....
“Today I took a small leather purse I had to a friend for a little girl she picks up and takes to Church with her every Sunday.”
