Family Day Weekend Wrap Up

Image
Yes, I am writing about last weekend. Just go with it! I read today that the province of BC will move FD to the third Monday in February. Yay! The rest of Canada celebrates FD (or another holiday) on that day, so it only makes sense to have it line up with that. Also, most of the US celebrate Presidents Day on that day, so it helps with cross-border holidays, shopping, etc. I am very happy! I always wondered why we had on a separate wknd (not that I am complaining..a 3 day wknd is a 3 day wknd...I am always happy when I get an extra day off!) from the rest of Canada/US. Oh yah...for those of you think that the newspaper is dead..think again..I read that in the newspaper...I do read them from time to time :)

Ok..so on to last wknd:

Friday, my friend asked if I could drive her home "up the hill", and she promised me a coffee if I did...and of course, who was I to say no? We went to Starbucks, and we talked for two hours! Then I went to Wal-Mart to grab a few things, and I went…

Five on Friday

Happy Friday! I am at home with a cold today. This is my 3rd or 4th cold of the school year. Ugh! I am not amused. Anyway....I could have pushed myself to go in today, but I decided to be kind to myself (and others), and stay home.

1) We are Medaling/Google Doodle

Canada now has 13 medals!!! I am so proud! I am not watching as much Olympics as I normally do...I am watching a lot of shows right now, but I am watching a fair amount, and I am getting the updates via the news, and my Olympic App. I may or may not be happy that we are the 4th leading country to have the most medals...behind Old US of A :) PS...does anyone else like saying Pyeongchang like me? I am LOVING Good Doodle's Daily Doodle (or whatever you call it) that they are doing every day for the Olympics. Check them out! The doodles are so cute!!!


2) Workout:

I worked out two days in a row this week. I am so proud of myself! I went on Monday (Family Day) with a  friend, and I did an hour work out...and the same friend an…

Five on Friday/Life Catch Up

Happy Saturday!! I haven't been in the blogging groove lately. But I am buckling down and trying to hammer out a few posts tonight.

Here are some of my favourite from the last week or two:

1) Winter Olympics:


I am not as into them as I usually am this time. I think part of it is that I have SO MANY other movies and shows to watch and catch up on, that I am watching those right now. That being said, I did watch some today. I am happy to report that Canada got its first 2 medals today!!! Go, Canada, Go!




2) Sweet Gifts

I was given two gifts in the last week or so at school. A student gave me this scarf, and a teacher gave me this S'Well Bottle.


3) 3 Day Wknd!

It is Family Day Long Wknd this weekend, and we are all excited about it.

4) These Cookies (and making them with Anker)/Dates with Anker

Last Sunday, it snowed so much, that I didn't go to church. Again. And I was sad about it. I was not sad, however, in the fact that I stayed home all.day.long, and Anker and made some c…

Christmas and NY 2017

I realize that we are almost done with January, and I am only now just getting to writing about Christmas. Oh-freaking-well!! Ha!

Well, it is now almost the middle of February, and I STILL haven't got to Christmas, yet! I had better blog about it now, or it will be too late. I never did blog about our trip to Victoria 2 or 3 years ago. I started to, but I never did. So, though it wasn't super exciting, I want to document it (yes, I keep a journal, but going to the blog is easier when I am trying to look stuff up). I won't put a ton of pics up, b/c I put most them of on IG and FB, and I want this to go fast.

Since school went right until the 22nd, I wasn't really into Christmas this year until about the last week. We were all too tired, and too busy to care. I didn't even know if I was going to put up a tree this year, and though I am glad that we did, I don't know if we will put on up next year. Anyway...on the last day of school before Christmas Break, our cla…
