It has been quite awhile since I’ve heard from my friend the Surly Mermaid. The expressions expressed are hers and hers alone but I do enjoy providing a forum for her to express herself.
Facebook Status- The Irritation Game
I have been known to delete Facebook “friends” over their stupid Facebook status updates. I can’t believe all the incessant whining . It gets to be very annoying.
Really, there is no need to post all your perceived medical drama on line because all the world has already figured out that you are a hypochondriac. Seriously, stop posting all your problems because I am embarrassed for you. There needs to be an eye roll button. Charlie Brown definitely had it right…
Next comes the “links”. All the stupid “links” looking for “likes”. I want Facebook to have a “dislike” button. Oh yeah, wouldn’t that be awesome but I am sure I would be accused of being a cyber bully because I would use that one waay too much.

I must apologize for missing a post on June 30, because for the first time ever we took three weeks vacation (in a row) and believe it or not some of the places we visited did not have any cellular or internet service 🙂 .
We went back to my home province of Nova Scotia and spent much of the time on Cape Breton Island.
We covered a lot of territory and I can happily say I can check some items off my Summer Bucket List.
I must thank my dear friend Amelia P from You Can Always Start Now for jumping in and doing a guest post last Monday – what would I do without her? Happy to report we did get to have a face to face visit.
The main reason and most important reason for our trip was to be….

Hello, I have commandeered Wanda’s site as she is on vacation and asked me to guest post on overflow for summer spaces. I have been thinking about shaking things up at my place.
I have a small balcony that measures 12 feet x 4 feet and have been very busy lately checking out ideas, online. You can also find some pictures I have posted on my own site www.youcanalwaysstartnow.wordpress.com of options for small balcony spaces. I love the use of rugs, cushions and extra storage (I won’t say for what but you’ll see when you check them out).
While looking around for balcony ideas I came across a few for larger areas and thought why not share over at Wanda’s as she is working away on her yard and always likes to check out new things. So have a look and let us know what you think or if you have any ideas please share.
So let summer begin with outdoor living, BBQ, good weather and fun friends!
I know Wanda will think it is A Wandaful Thing!! 🙂
It’s been awhile since I heard from my friend |The Surly Mermaid” she lives back East and was probably buried in snow for the last while. I am so glad she has resurfaced as I love hearing about her quips and snibs of what’s on her mind. So without further adieu….

The Wonders of Hot Chocolate.
As a Canadian Gal, I am used to the cold and snow. Over here on the Atlantic side, we have become accustomed to a milder winter. In fact, it was something like 12C on Christmas Day, but we seem to be paying the price for that now:(
I wonder to myself (or maybe out loud)when will this winter, which is much like the ones of my childhood, ever end? I am an avid downhill skier but the thought of strapping on those fiberglass boards to my ski boots and hurling myself down a mountain, in this bone numbing cold, with the snow whipping in my face, nah it just isn’t doing it for me this year.
As I sit here sipping on my hot chocolate, gazing out my window, realizing I am all warm and cozy in my onesie, (yes I am a grown woman who wears a onesie) I ponder the question, have I become a winter whimp?
After another delightful sip, I sit down, find the remote, click on the weather channel and think, wow it must really suck to live in other parts of the world right now… ah I guess I don’t have it so bad afterall.
The moral of this is story ….
Hot Chocolate is A Wandaful Thing!!
Til next time, stay warm -The Surly Mermaid!
I originally posted about this Challenge on December 31, 2014 but heck we are already a week into January 2015 and I want to invite you again to take part in this Valentine’s Day Tablescape Challenge – just in case you forgot and got sidetracked with all those other blogger challenges taking part out there 🙂
Ever since I started packing up the Christmas Decorations to put them away (a trip to the hospital and then eye surgery slowed me down a wee bit) I’ve been chomping at the bit and hurting my brain thinking about the Valentine’s Day Tablescape Challenge.
