After nearly 2 years in The Philippines, my sister arrived home last (Monday) night. We had big plans of all going up to my brother and SIL's house after picking up said sister for a quick bite to eat dinner. Well, life doesn't always turn out the way we hoped, planned and wanted. Her plane got delayed (get this), 3 times! Yo...I didn't know it was even POSSIBLE for planes to get delayed FROM Canada (she was coming from YVR) that many times! Poor thing had been there for 7 hours, and had been travelling for 48 (or something). Well, Anker came with us to see her come in, and then we dropped Anker off (he nearly came with us, but he was too tired), and I drove up the hill to A and K's. Yes, we had a huge supper at 9 pm. It was actually nice. Mom, Dad and V left around 9:30, and I stayed until 1030. Yes, I was out/ up late on a school night. Yes, I paid for it today. Oh well. I am glad that I got to hang out with her for a bit. We are having a bit of a welcome home/bday p…
Here are just a few random things that I felt like sharing with you..b/c, well, I can :)
Our school dressed up in green and some of them had fun accessories. I just bought a school tshirt, which is green, and one of the teachers gave me stickers, which I used as earrings. Very cool. We didn't do a ton of stuff today, either, as we were all exhausted. I ended up bringing (as in buying) SPD mini cupcakes, of which the kids devoured.
After school, I was hoping to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the Shamrock Shake with our dinner from McD's. I was very disappointed to find out that they were out. I almost went back, this evening, but I don't need it, but man, was I ever bummed.
I went to Starbucks twice this week..one time was with our new neighbour. I went yesterday, and I got a peppermint frap (their version of the Shamrock Shake), which was good. I also go their SunDried Ethioptian Coffee, which is very good.
I watched Driving Miss Daisy for the first time ever this e…
Here are some randoms of our lives, and a little life update :)
Our garden is giving us food! There are about 10000 strawberries that we have got from our garden! Anker has made some strawberry/orange jam, and it was SO GOOD! We are also getting zucchini and snap peas. Yum!
Our new neighbours have moved in. They seem nice, and so far, quite quiet. We shall see. The new neighbours to the other side of us seem nice, too...Anker actually talked to them. They like to garden, and were there last wknd putting in some stuff.
There is a fire burning not too far from us. Thankfully, it's not threatening any buildings, and I HOPE that it has been contained, but I am not sure. My friend and I went up the other day to check it out. I actually had no idea that it was even burning until she told me, which is weird, b/c I would have thought I would seen or smelled the smoke. Anyway, none of us are worried....yet :)
I fell a couple of weeks ago on my way to work. It was all so silly. Anker was so…
