Good Sunday Morning from Prince Edward Island,
Put the kettle on, dropping in for a quick cup of tea.

Wanted to share this little video of photographs taken by a variety of photographers and shared with us. They were all taken in our Butterfly House.
We missed sending this on Saturday. Oh, what a day. Hundreds for breakfast and a wedding party to boot. All went reasonably well. The staff did great under the pressure of serving hot food in a timely and friendly manner. We love our staff.
The last day of July broke a historical record for heat for that date on Prince Edward Island. 31 C or 87 F. I am sure to those who live in the southern US would welcome these temperatures, being northerners we are most uncomfortable with the heat.
We have operated our business for 31 years at this location. This is the first time we closed down the restaurant in mid-afternoon. Just too hot for our kitchen staff. Even though our kitchens are air-conditioned, the AC could not keep up.
I came across this TED talk recently and I thought, "wouldn't it be nice" if wellness became as important to countries as the pursuit of wealth.
It is not quite a ten-minute watch, but worth your time and thought.
According to author Tom Rath, there are five factors that are the currency of a life of wellness.
Career Well-Being: To be eager to begin work each day. Feel appreciated as a person as well as an employee. Respected supervisor, enjoys associates, speak with pride and appreciation about company to others
Social Well-Being: To have several strong relationships. Be able to activate a support system when encountering problems, feel loved
Financial Well-Being: To manage finances prudently. Be aware of costs and in control of expenditures, frugal but not cheap
Physical Well-Being: To get enough rest as well as rigorous regular exercise. Have plenty of energy in reserve, eat wisely.
Community Well-Being: To be actively and productively engaged in the neighbourhood and in the community. As well as in various groups within the area such as a church, P.T.A., Crime Watch, Meals on Wheels, etc.
Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible.
Have a great week ahead and thank you for your time today.
Got to run, a busy Sunday morning ahead. Have a great day!
With love from Prince Edward Island,
I’ve decided I’ll never get down to my original weight and I’m okay with that...
After all, 6 lbs 3 oz is just not realistic.
