Hi just a quick blog before I leave for my shopping trip..it's been great with this o
nce a month grocery shopping but I haven't been in a store since Oct 31!! Shopping is one of my favorite things so I'm having a combo of shopping withdrawal and cabin fever..haha...I don't need any groceries but will start some early Christmas shopping :)
The spark site is going to be down tonight so I might as well get this in before then.
Well off to have breakfast..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'
30 days and 30 ways
13 Mix up your work outs...good bye cows..hello power shopping
Hi..I missed blogging yesterday..the morning was long and cold with a raging blizzard the whole sorting time..and I got really cold..thawed out now...
The rest of yesterday was spent warming up and watching some tv..hubby watched lots of war shows on the history channel and I watched the Riders lose their game.
Hope you all remembered to Remember Remembrance Day! And took some time to be thankful for our freedom..
Today the storm is over and the sun is shining..I did some catching up with housework and some reading..I also started knitting a scarf and the cable stitch is working out this time..it's about 3/4 finished.
Tomorrow we are going to Weyburn finally!! So we can get the bills paid..tomorrow is the last day before they are overdue..and I'll do some shopping, maybe early Christmas shopping...
We ended up with lots and lots of snow..will take pics tomorrow if I have the time.
Better go for now ..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Hi..we now have lots and lots of snow..maybe about 10-12"!! yikes!! We didn't have anymore than about 4" this morning so we did decide to go to Weyburn.... but got just a little way from home and ran into deep snow..and the roads weren't cleared yet so we turned around and headed back home.
Hubby went out fixing fence after lunch and I caught up on some baking..made a batch of chocolate chip cookies..I tried something new and baked one pan and froze the rest in logs for slice and bake later. Then I made a pumpkin sheet cake and froze 3/4 of it in three freezer containers, then I tried a new recipe I found on Pinterest..baked pumpkin donuts..yumyum...I froze 4 bags of those and left someout for Hubby's treats.
I chatted online to my daughter and phoned my friend for a visit..also played some scrabble with friends online..great things to do on a very very snowy day.. I shovelled off the front deck aobut 4 times, too.
I want to make a knitted scarf with a single cable on it and I found a pattern to try on Pinterest..I'm not sure if I'm doing it right as the "cable" doesn't look very pronounced...probably doing something wrong...any suggestions??
Now we are setttling in to watch a bit of tv near the wood stove and catch up on some sparkin' We have to be up early to be at the neighbors by 7am to help them sort their calves for market..hope we can make it there and the road doesn't get blocked...and the semi can make it okay...
Well..that's all for now..thanks for dropping by and for your comments and support..keep on Sparkin'
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...........
oh yeah..30 days and 30 ways...
(I've signed up for a 21 day meditation challenge with Deepak Chopra and I love it..it's on Facebook)
Hi..we've had a busy day..we went to neighbors this morning and helped them round up their cattle before the "big blizzard" hits..they are selling their calves soon and needed them home..we go back Sunday to help them sort calves for market...we stayed for lunch which was a very nice treat :) I enjoyed their hospitality!!
Then we ran to town for the mail...then home to move our cattle home..they are almost out of fall grazing where they were at so we brought them home in case it does storm.....thne hubby got a call from another neighbor that there were cattle in the community pasture that don't belong..so he drove over there and couldn't find any...
We got around 2 '' of snow so far and a bit of wind..not the big blizzard yet..I'm sure it's happening somewhere...
We didn't get time today to go to the city so maybe tomorrow depending on the weather..I'd like to get the pictures done for the Christmas cards and find some patterned paper for the letters..or I could just design some...
I think I'm almost over my flu/cold am feeling much better now...
I should go make some tea..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

I'm feeling quite a bit better..still having some fever and chills ut didn't do too much today..except for some heavy lifting..hubby got a pallet of salt blocks and 12 bags of minerals so we wunloaded them today..the both wiegh about 50 pounds and lots of each...mega work out..then I helped load more posts where hubby was fixing some fence..and I got drinking water..3-5 gallon jugs loaded into the back of the ton truck...so got my ST and rode x bike too.
