Just remembered..need to deliver 55 more Christmas gifts...

Thursday, December 23, 2010

Hi..did that title catch your attention? They're gifts for my spark friends of course!! I'm giving them all gift goodies :) And 12 are done..just taking a blog break and gonna make some tea for me..want some too?

I rode bike for 30 minutes today :) spent some time tidying up, cleaned the porch, shovelled the front deck. Had pot roast with onions, potatoes and carrots for lunch and supper (actually I just had beef and spinach) Visited on phone with my neighbor and sister. Spent some time online reading e-mails etc.

Now we're watching a bit of hockey on tv while I do some Sparkin'...back to delivering goodies...

Hope everyone has the Merriest Christmas ever!!!

Keep on Sparkin'
Love Donna

Just home from supper out at Plentywood, Montana :)

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Hi we just got home from having supper down in Plentywood. There was a shrimp special at the supper club where we ate so I had that (I love shrimp) with a tossed salad, dressing on the side and a baked potato and a ceasar. Hubby had the chicken and gems..both delicious meals :) We did a bit of shopping..I got a few magazines, some groceries and hubby got some cattle supplies. When we first got there we went to the library and looked up some of his mother's relatives and had some family history photocopied.

Earlier today we went to the local town for mail..tons of Christmas cards!! picked up some calendars, dropped off the last of the gifts to deliver (except for the bottle of rum we bought for a hostesses gift for Christmas Day)

This morning while hubby fed the herd I rode my bike for 30 minutes...
Well this is going to be a short blog..we're ready for bed..I'm pooped!!

Take care all my spark friends , keep on Sparkin'

Have the Merriest Christmas Ever!!!

Love Donna!!

Baking tray pics and chocolatey mint tea :)

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Hi all..just a quick blog..I'm down one of the 2 pounds I gained over early Christmas.woohoo!!

Delivered some Christmas gifts to neighbors and went up to Weyburn today. Ran into lots of friends to visit with and wish a merry Christmas to :)

I forgot my gift cards but bought a wii fit since there was only one left!! Haven't taken it out of the box yet..I'm technically inept :)

I got up at 2 am to look at the moon eclipse but the moon must have been overhead since it wasn't visible from any window!! and I was not in the mood to go out in the cold..brrrrr!!!

I'm relaxing with my little tea pot of chocolatey mint tea :) nice to relax after a busy day. Tomorrow I'm going to town for mail and pick up a few things..also deliver the rest of the Christmas gifts..two friends who live on the way to town. I made up a couple of cookie boxes to give them along with their gifts..so I took some pictures of them...

Only one picture downloaded..you get the idea !! Still have another box to make up for the slo-pitch team New Years party!!!! Then just a bit left for hubby and a couple for me haha!! This is not a diet..a lifestyle change and I'm able to add a few cookies to my Christmas :)

Well just watching Jay Leno and his $.99 Christmas ideas from the $.99 Store!!
Gotta love Jay Leno. I've finished my tea..just have to wake up hubby on the couch and off to bed..Keep on Sparkin' Merry Christmas!!

Love Donna

    Yum, Yum, Yummy! Those cookies look beautiful, and delicious.
I tried to see the eclipse also but it's been raining since last Friday and I haven't seen anything but clouds. Darn, would of liked to have seen it. Glad your enjoying your holidays.
Good Night!

    I had to get up about 2 a.m. and so looked to see how the eclipse was going (it started just about my bedtime). It took a bit of looking around as it was in totality at that time and was a real dark orange. I think that is as dark as I've seen with a lunar eclipse. I didn't stay up and watch it, had to go to work in the morning, so needed my rest.

On your note on my page - Since you live in Canada, I wasn't sure that you would understand 5" of snow, so I just looked at a measure tape that had both scales on it and put down the cm. I'm not nearly so handy at converting F to C. If I can't look it up on the internet and plug in a number, I have to derive the formula from the two points that I know what the values are. (Did you figure out that really twisted sentence?)

I usually don't have much trouble converting lb to kg, or km to mi, but the rest of them are sometimes confusing.

I see the wind is starting to pick up, I hope it doesn't get to where you are.

    I slept through it, don't think I would have seen it anyway, too overcast and foggy here. Your cookie boxes turned out great! The cookies look delicious! You'll have to let us know how the Wii fit goes! emoticon

Back on my bike :)

Monday, December 20, 2010

Today I was supposed to go carolling with a friend at the seniors home but she has a bad cold so no singing for us :( Hubby was at a meeting and it was very snowy today. I got back on my exercise bike today and hopefully pedalled away some of my Christmas treats..haha..my weight was up a bit but I can work that off!! I also put more stuff away, did some reading and mostly just took a "ME" day.

We just got invited to son's girlfriend's parent's Christmas!! Supper on the 25 th.
So much for a quiet weekend!! :)

I got some gift cards for Christmas and am trying to decided what to buy, any ideas?? I've been thinking maybe snow shoes and a wii fit? What do you think?

Well, I should get ready for bed. Hope everyone is having a great week before Christmas..we may be going to Weyburn tomorrow if the wind doesn't blow all this fresh snow into a blizzard!!

Take care and Keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna!

    Gotta love those ME days . . . especially after a busy couple of days. I bet it felt good to get back on the bike. My treadmill is broken and it has been too nasty to be outside (yep, I'm a wimp!) so I have been riding the bike too. The nice thing about the bike is that I read when I ride it! If I'm at a good part of my book . . . I tend to ride longer!! Enjoy your day! I'm to do grocery shopping and to pick up a few small things. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hey Donna,

Stay inside, warm, and cycling! And have a very merry YOU day!
Is the background photo for your sparkpage a photo of the view from where you live? Looks wide open beautiful to me!

Your bud,

    Just looked at our weather forecast and it doesn't look like much for wind here until Wednesday, and then not even too bad. We got about 13 cm of snow here this morning.

Early Christmas was fantastic!!!

Sunday, December 19, 2010

Hi..I'm just relaxing with a little pot of peppermint tea. We had a fantastic time at early Christmas!! We had a house full and all the kids were home :) Got to meet daughter's new boyfriend..I approve..he's a very nice guy :) The granddaughters were as cute as ever..the littlest one who's 6 called the mistletoe kissletoe :)

We had a huge turkey and cabbage roll supper with all the trimmings and quite a few beers and eggnogs and rum. We played a really fun game called "You don't Say" and we laughed so hard I was crying..we're still chuckling about it today.
It was a bit warmer so the little granddaughters and I went sledding and bouncing on the trampoline. Then everyone had to leave by early afternoon.

I'm enjoying the peace and quite of and empty house and puttering around putting stuff back to normal. I'm completely pooped!!!

Have to share this little story that was in one of the Christmas cards we got on Friday..a friend has a preschool little boy and he's in a Christmas pageant in his playschool, he has a really hard time pronouncing certain letters.and says f's for j's ...so he has to say baby Jesus in his lines and says baby fesus...gotta chuckle at little ones :)

Well, I need to get to bed and recoup from Christmas!!!

Night all and keep on Sparkin'

for those of you who still have to celebrate Christmas..Merry Christmas!!!

Love Donna!!

    So glad you had such a fun early Christmas with your family!
I laughed at your statement about enjoying the peace and quiet. So true isn't it? We all love the friends and family visiting (but it's always nice to relax afterwards).

Love the cute card story. Kids say the cutest things.
