Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the USA!!

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Hi..hope everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving in November is enjoying their day!!

I am very thankful for all my Spark friends and all the support I receive here everyday!! You guys are the greatest!!

We had a very interesting day in Moose Jaw yesterday...the freezing rain and snow that were forecast started early in the day..we drove the whole way in rain, the highways and streets were very slippery..then it started to snow..after the hockey game we had a very long and slippery and blizzardy ride home..we got home after midnight...

..the game and supper out and of course the visit with our son were all worth it though!

Today was kind of a lazy day..we had a man here signing up an oil well for the community pasture, then we moved the herd to another fall grazing field..brrr.. I froze my fingers on the quad...
..then for supper we had a kind of Thanksgiving supper from frozen leftover turkey breast from our Thanksgiving in October..some homemade stove top stuffing and some sweet potatoes, cranberries and lefsa..and pumpkin pie for dessert...

Maybe tomorrow I'll have my energy back and do some more fall cleaning...

...I've been working on my Christmas letter for the cards and for some reason when I try to type it , it leaves a space between every line no matter how I change the settings..yikes!! I wish I new how to use computers better haha...

Well better go for now...thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

30 days and 30 ways...

Have the Happiest Thanksgiving Spark friends..when I count my blessings I always count you, too!!

    I love how you start a paragraph with "Today we had a lazy day" and then proceed to talk about moving the herd in the freezing cold. Some kind of "lazy day"! Glad your trip home was safe!

Home from Weyburn..

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Hi..we did lots of shopping and bill paying today...I am almost finished with Christmas shopping!!

Some of my purchases were gift cards..I love to give and receive gift about you?? I got 11 Tim Horton $5 gift cards for my nieces and nephews..they live across Canada so this works really great...and fits into a card. I also got a few more gift cards for relatives and friends..also bought some amaryllis plants for gifts, too...mine turned out so beautiful last year so I thought I'd give some as gifts!

It felt good to put the fall cleaning on hold and tomorrow too as we are off to visit son is Moose Jaw, do some shopping, go out for supper and go to a hockey game... I'm really looking forward to my day!!

We took our truck in the shop to get the rest of the repairs done where the deer hit it..they never did fix it now it's better..still not great...

Well..should be off to bed..tomorrow is a busy day..thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    Wow - congratulations on being almost finished your shopping. I've done quite a bit of thinking about it, and have things in mind, but haven't actually shopped yet except for a couple of things we bought while we were away.

Like your November theme of hospitality. Good idea.

For years we gave my mother an amaryllis bulb for Christmas, and she loved them. One of my friends started giving them to me about 3 years ago, but unfortunately she died a month ago... I will buy one for myself and think of her when it blooms.

    What??? Your Christmas shopping is almost done?? That's not ... human:) Congratulations, though.

My son's future inlaws and the related sets of grandparents give both Pierce and his fiance gift cards for restaurants (because they know the kids are too cheap to go out on dates) and I can tell you those gift cards are MUCH appreciated. I don't know why I don't think of them more often. As a volunteer soccer mom I KNOW I love getting a Starbucks card. It's enough to keep me going for another year:)

Best wishes,

    Awesome job with the cleaning. I am going to start on washing walls and shampooing carpets after Sunday, it the days turn nasty so I can't be outside. If I can be outdoors, I will be cleaning the front flower beds. The house has only been getting a lick and promise for quite some time now and it definetly needs some TLC

Busy Sunday :)

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Hi..I spent a busy Sunday working on fall cleaning!! First of all I slept in so that made for a relaxing day..then I thought I should get cracking with the fall cleaning so I can put up the Christmas decorations inside in a couple weeks...

..So I washed curtains, windows, in and out, put away screens and washed down the bathroom..yesterday when I was cleaning the porch I washed all the mats. I got a good start on cleaning and lots of exercise!! I also got back on my bike for 30 minutes to day..actually I just started and a friend called so I visited with her for awhile and then started back on the bike..I hope to ride for 30 minutes everyday until Saturday for my consistency part for the 5% fall challenge!

I made a treat for hubby today..a rustic plum pie..I had a small taste and it turned out quite yummy :)

I also had a visit with my other sister tonight..she has had a busy weekend helping to tin their garage roof :)

Well. I'm going to call it a night and go to bed early tonight..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

Warm, sunny November day...

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Hi..I took advantage of the beautiful day and put up the Christmas lights..well hubby helped with some..then some of them wouldn't light so I need a couple new strands for next time I'm in town..I hunted every where for the greenery and flowers and bows I put in my hanging baskets..I finally found them so those are out too!

I also did a major clean up in the porch..looks much better now. One of the jobs was to make up the firestarter bags. I had a 5 gal pail of twigs and pinecones I picked up earlier and I just put them in brown paper lunch bags and tie off with twine. They get the fire started easy :)

This week is week 7 in the 5% fall challenge..the extra is to start an exercise streak..I was going to get on my bike for 30 minutes for my streak but ended up too busy with out active jobs, hopefully tomorrow!! It's hard to believe the challenge is almost over..we're almost at the end of November!! I see I'm quite close to reaching a new level in Spark points..I think my goal for spark points for December is to reach the next level!! It will be less than 2000 pts at this rate so I think I can do it!!

We are having a quiet weekend so I'm just relaxing on the couch with the laptop, tv and background noise of hubby snoring..haha...I played a few games and talked to one of my sisters on the phone, earlier I was chatting on line with my friend who moved to New Zealand...this challenge has been fun and one of the places we visited was New Zealand, another was the Grand Canyon...a place where we just visited in June when we were in Vegas..the high light of the holiday was the helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon!! Now we're off to Tahiti... makes me think of the Eddy Murphy movie..where he says..Neckit in Tahiti.. lol!!

Well..time to get some sleep..I am almost over all my flu/cold symptoms, but still quite tired..even tho i really slept in today..

Thanks for dropping by ..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    Oh Wow! The your firestarter idea. I'm going to start collecting twigs. Not to many pinecones around, but plenty of twigs. Even in the summer we like to have a fire in our firepit on the deck. Thanks for the great tip! emoticon

    Wow -- you just keep moving. Love the paper bag firestarter idea. I loved my fireplace when I lived in Kansas -- now in Florida, not a real option.

Enjoy your couch time!!
