Happy Easter

Sunday, April 08, 2012

It's been a wonderful long weekend with all that Easter entails. So much to be grateful for and enjoy.

All the kids are coming over today for Easter dinner. It's so nice that they are all grown up and still wanting to spend the family time together.

Not a big blog today, just a touching base one. I'm choosing to make this a day of not being on the computer!


Wishing you all a wonderful Easter celebration.

Hugs,
Wanda

Spring is trying to making a re-appearance.

Saturday, April 07, 2012

Spring is trying to make itself know once again. This last dump of snow has made that a long process. The roads have finally cleared off but the snow is still deep in the yards. Not a bad thing as the slower it melts the more of that moisture is actually going into the ground.

We ended up with all the kids over at the house again last night. We watched the "Muppets" movie and had lots of laughs together. How blessed we are that our kids enjoy spending time with us. They will all be over tomorrow for Easter dinner, so another day of fun.

I am excited...I finally found someone that will ship me live milk kefir grains! Woo Hoo. She is on province over from us and will ship them out on Monday. I'm am so excited. As a rule she said she only does pickup, but will under the circumstances ship to me to help me get started. Another healthy path has opened up. YAY. She also has the Kombucha culture, but I will wait a bit on that as it is difficult to ship. I will continue to see if I can't locate some locally. If not, at least I know where I can get some. The person that I am getting the grains from is in Saskatoon, so not out of the realm of possibility to go there on our way to see Garry's Mom.

My positives:
Another opportunity to see how when we turn our concerns over to the Lord, how if it is in our best interests, the Lord provides.
Sunshine again today.
Our kids.
Quin's girlfriend and her Mom are heading to Texas on a break and she is going to look for a vinegar pot for me.
Blessed with another day of life and the opportunity to be all that I have been created to be.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Congrats on finding the stuff you were looking for and being able to have it shipped to you. Sounds like you are getting in lots of family time this weekend. We'll be going to youngest DD's tomorrow afternoon, looking forward to that. We have a beautiful day here, hope it's like this tomorrow. Have a blessed and Happy Easter.

The official record is that we received 25 cm of snow yesterday...all I know is that it was very wet and heavy! It did get up to plus 3 by late afternoon, so much of the snow on the roads has melted but with the temps dropping to below zero last night and still sitting at minus 6 this morning...those same roads are deadly with ice. On the plus side...It's Good Friday, so the commute traffic is much less than normal.

Quin's dog Sage has been so delighted to have all this snow to play in. She really loves the snow and has been racing around in the backyard and enjoying herself immensely.

We are having our Easter Dinner on Sunday so that everyone will be here, we all head back to work on Monday. The great think about your children growing up....they turn every get-together into pot-lucks so the work doesn't all land with one person! Bless their hearts.

My positives:
The sun is shining and it promises to be a wonderful day.
It's Good Friday.
Watching the delight with Sage as she plays in the snow.
Garry making breakfast for the both of us this morning.
Being granted another day of life.

Have a wonderful Friday and celebrate the day.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Hope your snow melts away quickly and you are back to seeing green.Dogs are fun to watch out in the snow, they seem to get such joy from running around and rolling in it. Enjoy this Good Friday and your family time this weekend. Happy Easter.

Hugs,

Oh Mother Nature, your sense of humor leaves much to be desired!

Thursday, April 05, 2012

Well the winter snow warning that was announced yesterday came to fruitation! We got it during the night and high winds to boot. Woke up to a foot of snow this morning that is very heavy and wet. The branches on the trees are snapping from the weight. Can't see the road or the sidewalks, had to dig out the truck so Garry could get to work. (Yay, I have today off work...maybe not so YAY, as now I have to shovel *grin*). So much for having the day to run some errands...not sure I want to be driving in all this. It's still snowing, although lightly now.

The newest member of the family made his appearance at 3am this morning. Garry's niece and her hubby welcomed their first baby into the world. A nice 7lb 14oz. He was due March 26 but preferred April 5th as his birthday! Can't wait to meet him.

My positives:
I didn't have to get up and drive to work this morning in all this snow.
A new member of the family.
Bread making day today...love the smell of fresh baking bread.
I'm back on track with my steps. This cold is lingering, but no longer keeping me down.
Blessed in so many ways and living grateful.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Oh my, please keep that snow as they are calling for warmer weather here this weekend. Going away this weekend for a much deserved rest. I will have my laptop and hopefully will be able to log. Getting my steps shopping and in the casino, LOL. Happy Easter!

A very busy day at work yesterday trying. I'm trying to catch up on the week's worth of work that I missed with being sick. I'm making headway, but think that today just might be a long day as it's my last work day this week and I don't want to carry a lot over to next week. We will see how the day progresses.

A beautiful day in the weather department yesterday, then tonight we are told to expect up to 25 cm of snow! On the plus side...I don't have to work tomorrow, so won't need to be out there at 4:30 in the morning shoveling and the temps are supposed to warm up quickly, so much of it will melt off anyway. You just have to love Mother Nature's sense of haha.

My positives:
It's spring time and the days are starting to get longer. It's now beginning to get light out around 7 am.
I was able to get for some groceries yesterday, now I'm stocked up on some fresh veggies and fruit. YAY.
I have a nice salad and apple to take to work today.
Today is my last work day this week, then a nice 4 day weekend. Once Easter is over, I have a couple of very busy weeks and then some holiday time starting April 27th to May 7.
Blessed with life and love.

Have a great and wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda
