Thursday Today.


Was watching some TED talks, and other documentary films at home. I love it when I have free time to do this. 






Just something I came across today.  1642. Sir Thomas Browne "I am the happiest man alive. I have that in me that can convert poverty to riches, adversity to prosperity, and I am more invulnerable than Achilles: fortune hath not a place to hit me. " 





Letters from the dollar store. 






This timer comes handy for lots of things. I use this as a means to lose some unwanted pounds.

I was able to borrow this material from the Library. I had the audio version and I finished listening to the entire book.  It was a very good book. Glad I took the time to listen to it.

Tuesday Morning.  My day off. I decided to go to Eureka, Montana for a drive. Just something to do. Maybe take photos and just have a nice walk. Then maybe go for Chinese food before heading back home. These are my photos for the day: 



Quality Quilts located in Grasmere, BC. I met the owner Ms. Annie Cox. She was a very friendly lady and I always appreciate kind people. She told me I can drop in for some sewing lessons If I wanted to. How nice! Maybe I can do that sometime soon.





Hand Guided Custom Machine Quilting is the specialty of this shop. 






The Small Town of Eureka, Montana. Eureka is a town in Lincoln County, Montana, United States. The population was 1,037 at the 2010 census.

Around the Corner Antiques and Art.  I met the owner Ms. Alicja R. Edwards. Aside from running this antique shop, she had also written a few books and has painted artworks. It was quite an interesting visit. She is such an interesting person. One day, I will come back to the store and buy her book. I might even get to blog about it. 





Antique Urinal. 






Old Forgotten doll. 






Antique Kitchen Equipment. 






This is a snuff box. Very old and Expensive. 







This was around $200. Silver. 







A not so clear picture (sorry)






The details of the Antique snuff box. 








I couldn't resist taking another photo after leaving the antique shop. I must have been there an hour. There was so much to see. Unfortunately I didn't have american dollars with me so I could't really purchase anything. Don't worry, I told Alicja in advance I couldn't buy anything because I didn't have cash so as she would know before she spends anymore time with me. But she didn't mind. In fact It became a nice visit. What a lovely lady. 














I was thinking of a hair cut. 






The Barber shop in Eureka, Montana. 





Yongs Restaurant, Eureka, Montana, USA






After a few hours of exploring the small town of Eureka, I was ready for an early dinner. 






I could see the barber shop from where I was sitting at Yongs Restaurant. 













Egg and Onion Chinese soup. 






Chicken Teriyaki. 







Tiny Old House






Going for a short walk after dinner. It was Freezing then! Brrrr!






Just a snap shot as I walked. I didn't bother stopping to frame it right. By this time, I was freezing so bad, I couldn't wait to get back into the car. Brrrr! Time to drive back home!

Monday Afternoon at the Gas Station



A beautiful truck sits there
out in the cold of winter
as snow light and fluffy,
playfully dance
and eventually rests on it.

The truck - in its gray rustiness
stands there - still;
unaffected...
quietly waiting for spring.
