Had a great day in Minot...

Friday, November 16, 2012

Hi...yesterday was really fun..We had an okay trip there but there was lots of fog and lots of traffic. I found lots of Christmas gifts and other neat stuff.

We got home late last night and I was too tired to blog...today I rested up a bit, went to town for mail and rounded up the cattle with the quad and helped move them to new grazing. The snow started to melt some but it was still deep in places, I almost got stuck a couple times with the quad and I had it in 4x4!!

This is just a short blog as it's almost off to bed for me...
Thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

Great Shopping day..

Wednesday, November 14, 2012


My little car under the snow...

Hi..I enjoyed getting away for the day yesterday..and found lots of Christmas gifts, got my pictures done for the cards and enjoyed a fun day..

Today we went to town for mail and lunch out..then I finally caught up the farm books!! woohoo!! Also talked to the kids on line to find out what they want for Christmas..we are going to Minot tomorrow for another shopping trip :)

I like to get most of my Christmas shopping finished in November while the selection is still good and the crowds aren't so bad and the weather is nicer... it has gotten a lot nicer since the storm!! some of the snow is even melting :) although I don't know if it will all go or not...

I took a few pics..we'll see if they upload at the end of the blog...or at the start..haha

We are getting an early start tomorrow so I should keep this short..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    I'm trying to remember being in snow that deep. . .

Thanks for the pictures -- I'll enjoy them instead of the snow itself. LOL

Hope it was a great trip.

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

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'

    We plan our shopping for about once a month, knowing that we have to still go weekly or bi-weekly for milk, bread, etc. I LOVE IT!! I like doing menu planning and knowing that if I have to work I've made it easy for hubby to make dinner by having things thawed out and planned out!!

The storm is over....

Monday, November 12, 2012

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.. emoticon


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'

Love Donna emoticon

    Nice, Sunshine! At least it gives you time to get out for awhile. And blah to the bills, but I know, they have to get paid, and every month too.

The blizzard is here!!

Saturday, November 10, 2012

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'
