Another sunny day...

Friday, April 05, 2013 was another bright and sunny day :) I enjoyed my day by spending sometime outside, checking through the herds and helping with chores..also put out salt and minerals to the bottom herds..

...Hubby had the quad going today so I went for a few rides :) It always makes me smile to go much fun....

I did some more baking today for freezer filler...I made a pumpkin sheet cake and put 3/4 of it in the freezer. Also made rhubarb crisp for supper's dessert..supper was pork chops, salad and veggies/ lunch was hot dogs and left over homemade beans and a spinach salad/breakfast was cereal and healthy snack for today was a microwaved egg..

Talked on the phone to my sister who is home from Mexico and she had a fabulous trip!! We also had the pipeline man here with another pipeline cheque :)

I did quite a lot of housework, too and some laundry and I started my monthly blackboard art..I just love blackboards..want to do some more blackboard painting... a later spring job on my list...

April is stress awareness month and losing some stress is a great way to lighten up. I found this list of 8 things to do~
1 get a full night of sleep
2 get exercise 4 days a week
3 eat a home cooked meal every day
4 schedule some quiet time
5 stay hydrated
6 play with family and friends regularly
7 cut back on caffeinated beverages
8 find a way to give back to your community

Today I burned my lemon candle, used my honey almond body spray, chewed some lemon sugar free gum..had a banana, worked on my yellow journal..wish I had colored chalk for my black board..I have been checking for it but haven't found any yet.

Tonight I am relaxing with another hockey game..hubby is asleep on the couch.. I'll relax for a couple more hours and then take the midnight check..then off to bed. Maybe I'll make some tea..I bought some new lemon and ginger tea that I haven't tried yet...

Well, thanks for dropping by..hope you had a sunny day..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    You really are bringing out the sunshine in your happy to be sharing it with's really rubbing off...I tell hubby about your life and he asks if you are a dairy farm or dry stock?

    He knew a lovely family in his 20's who were farmers and he loved the life in New Zealand, the weather there is usually temperate but does have areas of snow and hot parts as well. The family had a dairy herd and were on milk supply.

    Lovely people and so much fun to visit. Bad, bad, bad on the diet though as they had about 7 meals a day and all were scrumptious and massive amounts were consumed!!! We rode over the hills on the motorbikes and played 'quoits' in between meals :)

    Have a lovely day hope the weather stays fine
