Hey! It's Ok

Idea taken from Amber at Airing My Dirty Laundry One Sock At A Time

To love the fact that Kindle/Amazon allows you to download a sampler (usually the first chapter or so) of a book for free. It's great if you're not sure if the book in question will appeal to you- it gives you the opportunity to read a bit of the book and if you like what you read, you can purchase the entire book. If you don't like what you read...on to the next book!

To be a little annoyed when you buy cookies marked as 'Oatmeal & Chocolate Chip' only to find that they are actually oatmeal, chocolate chip and raisin. If I wanted raisin, I would have bought the oatmeal raisin cookies. I'm not really a fan of raisins...

To be sad and a bit disturbed by the shooting at the Eaton Centre in Toronto on the weekend. I'm glad that the lady who was pregnant was ok. I hope the other victims have speedy recovery and I pray for the family of the young man who died. This act of violence was uncalled for and very unfortunate.

To be amazed that Queen Elizabeth II has reigned for 60 years! Since Canada is a member of the British Common Wealth, Queen Elizabeth is our official Head of State. We celebrate Victoria Day in May in honour of Queen Victoria, who was the longest reigning monarch at 64 years. I wonder if Victoria Day will be replaced with Elizabeth Day, or if Elizabeth Day will be created as a separate holiday.

To love the way Miss Rhode Island (and the new Miss USA) handled her final question about a transgender woman winning over a natural born woman. Awesome answer, definitely the hardest and most controversial question asked and so happy she won!

To love that Jennifer over at Southern Living: Preppy Style (one of my favourite bloggers!) has been inspired to do her own Hey! It's Ok entry. Check it out here.

  1. I really think the Kindle maybe one of the best things ever!
