Home from another road trip....

Thursday, February 09, 2012

Hi..we just got home from another road trip..did I mention hubby has been on a road trip kick before calving starts??? haha..we went to Plentywood for some farm stuff and out for supper..we were a bit early for supper so we popped into a furniture store nearby and ended up buying some new kitchen chairs...

All in all a fun day..after lunch we were back down to the neighbor's to help him sort and load his sheep...I got literally run into by a sheep..good thing I'm pretty substantial so I didn't even lose my balance...haha..Adventures in farming...

After being so good yesterday I had a great breakfast and lunch but went way over with supper (buffet!!)

I found the most beautiful dragon fly earrings for me..I love dragon flies!! So that was a little treat for me, also got a new magazine so I should cut this short, go pour me a small glass of red wine and relax with my magazine..oh yeah, the hockey game is in over time...what else is new? haha..

Busy day..

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

Hi..we were off on another road trip..this time to Weyburn..took Father-in-law out for his birthday lunch at a little diner type place that also has great chinese food..I had shrimp chopsuey and it was excellent:) Then on to some business papers to sign where they were also having coffee and snacks all afternoon..with my coffee I had fresh strawberries and cantaloupe yum yum and left the donuts and cookies alone..yeah me!! Then we did some shopping, found some cool colored pens at the $ store, got some groceries to stock up for calving and lots of fresh veggies and fruits including a fresh pineapple..on sale for under $2, got a few things at Walmart..a new t-shirt for me and 2 new pairs of jeans for hubby, a new Sandra Brown book (my fav author) called Lethal, then on to Canadian Tire where I found 2 new pole lamps for the living room.
Then we brought chicken home for supper..I had mine with out skin and no fries or gravy...I had such willpower today I need to celebrate with a small glass of my very yummy red wine :)

Besides all the walking and shopping, when I got home I rode the x bike for 30 minutes during part of the hockey game..Edmonton lost :(..now I'm watching Calgary and hubby is asleep on the couch..

I caught up with the laundry this morning before we left for town..I'm on track with my February goals but really need to do more cleaning and sorting here!! Starting to look a bit like an episode of Hoarders..yikes!!

Need less Sparking and Pinterest and more Cleaning and Sorting!!

On that note..I think I'll go pour me some wine..thanks for dropping by..keep on sparkin'

    You make me want to start back in on things again. I guess I am taking a forced vacation from just about everything. I am getting beds stripped and the laundry done. I am getting the computer room ready to have the sweeper in it and also get the plants watered.
It is so good that you are able to get things going and I know what you mean about hoarders. It was after watching some episodes of it that caused me to start weeding things out. Talking about weeding. Thanks for the garden tools I know that I will be able to start using them before much longer.
Blessings to you

    Pineapples were 98 cents a peice last week when I was grocery shopping so I got two, and then I received a free 4 kg case of Mangos for spending more than 175 dollars! I've definitely been getting in my Vitamin C. I've also been working on cleaning out the house of all the clutter. It's a small house with 5 people living in it, I don't have room to store every little thing, sometimes it's better to just let go.

Enjoying a small glass of red wine...

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

Hi..after a busy, hectic day, I'm relaxing with a small glass of red wine :) I recieved this wine for Christmas from my son and wanted to save it for February. Red wine is supposed to be heart healthy and well..it's red..perfect for February emoticon

Well I didn't know having wine would be a project... since I tried to open it yesterday and my corkscrew didn't work on it..so on my travels today to town for mail and business I bought a new corkscrew..works perfectly emoticon

Besides riding my x bike and going to town this morning , we had a quick lunch of fish stcks and coleslaw (and hubby had fries) I had some of my homemade yogurt and a tiny bit of raspberry jam. Then we headed down to the neighbor's the help him tag his sheep he wants to sell in a few days. Then we went in for coffee. Did a bit of housework until supper ..which was smokies, perogies, onions, peas and carrots, spinach salad and apple crisp and a tiny bit of ice cream emoticon

Made a few phone calls after supper and am now watching the end of the Winnipeg hockey game. We lined up with hubby's parents to meet and take them out for lunch for Father-in-laws birthday a couple days early. Also talked to daughter to see if the plans were finalized for the school break trip here, but not so far...looking forward to having the granddaughters here for their week off school. Mailed away the Valentines today emoticon

I'm happy with my February progress on my goals..Plan to check out some new and different fruits and veggies at Weyburn tomorrow...

...Thanks for dropping by for wine (or relaxing drink of choice..I have my water bottle by my side too) Keep on Sparkin' emoticon

emoticon Love Donna

Feeling much better now...

Sunday, February 05, 2012

Hi..I really took it easy today and I feel alot better tonight. I was back to being able to eat normally and did ride my bike for 30 mins at a moderate speed. I spent most of today resting and checking out Pinterest..found a cool idea on how to knit a dish cloth from an old t-shirt. Just cut around the bottom of the t-shirt in one thin continuious strip...then stretch it to make the "yarn"..I used big needles and cast on 20 stitches and knit till it was square. The picture actually showed to knit one row purl one row but I made mine more nubby for extra cleaning action. It was quite fun and easy..
And I've gotten over 40 repins already :) wow!

I watched the half time show while hubby was on the phone, and I had a long chat with my sister in Regina.

Well, thanks for all the get well wishes..and thanks for dropping by ..Keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon
