Wow..April already!!

As you might notice by the bright yellow background April is all about LIGHTENING UP, and SUNSHINE and HAPPY... emoticon

But first before I do the April theme and goal blog I will do the March recap...

March..what a month... My theme was dreams...magic dreams..oh I felt like I had no time to dream but hard work and focus has me meeting most of the month's goals..

emoticonspring cleaning...didn't do much of that..:(

emoticonlent...didn't do as well as I hoped..:(

emoticonremember art..did a bit..

emoticonjournals and blogs...did quite well on keeping up my journals and blogging almost daily...:)

So that about sums up March...all I can say is I'm glad I survived all your help and encouragement...I appreciated all your visits to my was the highlight of my day to crack open the lap top and see if a Spark friend had stopped by!

We had a very long and tiring day today...besides normal chores and I did some of the walk around checks, etc..we finally got at the working chute (that means I shovelled it out while hubby did other chores) so we could start to catch up with some tagging and tattooing ..we put cow tags in the first calf heifers and tattoo in their ears their id number...also any cows that have lost their tags over winter go in to get new ones..well we haven't been doing any and have even turned some out without being today while we were turning out pairs we used the chute and caught up with the tagging (except for the 10 0r 20 that got turned out before :(...) Don't know when we'll get to took all afternoon and I am beat!!

After too much Easter yesterday I had lighter meals for me today..breakfast..half a grapefruit and a hot cross bun/ lunch.. a small serving of chili with the last of my cracked wheat homemade bread toasted/ supper was a chicken breast, a big veggie salad and some honey dew melon..yum yum!!

Had a great phone visit with one of my best friends..she invited me to a concert with her in May..oh I love having stuff to look forward too!! :)

Well..I'm about wiped and I think I'll just relax with the last period of the hockey game..the Oilers are winning 3-0 vs Calgary!! Hubby is already asleep on the couch and I have a couple hours to relax before my cow check...I'll use the time to work on the rough draft of my April goals..

...stay tuned tomorrow for the goal blog...

Thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

Did you have any April fools pranks pulled on you? While visiting with daughter on the weekend I was telling the stories of different April fools pranks and the granddaughters were listening..they are 8 and 11 and they copied one of their aunt's pranks and took all the dishes etc out of mommy's cupboards..haha..she wasn't impressed..haha...I think her exact words were.."I hate April's fools.."

..."only a fool trips over yesterday..."

Are you all ready to LIGHTEN UP and SHINE with me..? emoticon

    I'm ready to lighten up and shine! I think April is going to be awesome! For my background, first I created a collage of pictures and captions and saved it as a .jpeg. Then, when I went to my page, for the background, I navigated to the picture on my laptop and uploaded it. Then, SP tiled the picture, creating the background. I'm glad you like it! It is nice having things to look forward really is uplifting and inspirational. Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon
