Weekend Wrap-up/Monday Morning Gossip

Linking up with Join this Gossip for
This past weekend was ok..I felt that all I did was work, and sleep. Oh is nice to be/feel busy.

Friday, I had to work, which was great. I worked until 9, and I came home and I watched some TV, did some FB'ing and went to bed. I know...such a crazy life I lead.

Saturday, I woke up and was relaxing when work called and asked me to work the night shift. I was debating about going back to bed, but then my neighbour called and asked if I wanted to go to the Farmers' Market with her. Since we haven't done much in awhile, and I knew that the FM was about to be over for the year, I decided to go.

After a couple of quick stops (which may or may not have included a trip to/through Tim Horton's), off to the market we went. It was a beautiful day, and I even managed to score some lettuce and carrots.

 We are having a civil election right the candidates were having a forum.

TV Shows.

I am seriously have become a TV addict. Along my many other TV shows that I watch, I also have gotten into 2 Broke Girls & Saving Hope. Seriously am loving these shows. I will also watch Forever if hubby is watching it.


Funky Music.

I all about Taylor's new (ish) song "Shake it Off", and I am also loving Meghan Trainor's "All About the Bass". I heard the latter on DWTS, and I had no clue as to who sang it. I finally Googled it, and it was that was what it was.


Return To Zero

We don't get Lifetime, so I was very sad that I wasn't able to watch it when it came out in May. I FINALLY found it on You Tube the other day. I actually haven't watched the movie in it's entirety, but I have watched most of it.I actually watched it on two diff…

Scenes from a Weekend

Yes, I am just a few posts behind. Never fear....I will catch up-eventually!

So, before I do FOF/Weekend Wrap up, etc, I wanted to do an update on/of LAST wknd!

Here goes...(be prepared for a butt-load of pictures!)

In Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated in October (which I like better, btw). It is always celebrated on the second wknd, and it almost always falls on our around by brother's bday. I secretly thinks he like this; turkey and family get togethers are a win-win for him, I am sure.

So, last Friday, October 10th, hubby and I chose to stay home, and leave the next day. We just relaxed and watched tv, and I am actually glad that we didn't try to go out that night.

Saturday, we left around 11, and got there around 1. Luke (the brother below me) and his wife, Amanda, and their little one N made the trek all the way from the Island. It was SO great to see them!! N never did fully warm up to me, but we did have some special moments. She loved that I brought some bubbles...and…

Just a Quick Update/Throwback Thursday

Can't do a long blog post today, but I am still alive! I really haven't felt the blogging bug lately (even with reading all the blogs), so I just am taking a bit of a blogging break. We are doing ok...a lot of financial stress lately, among other things.

We had a nice Thanksgiving Wknd with my family (I will try and blog about that soon), and it was great to see all my family again. We all get along so well (for the most part!), and we always enjoy each others' company. We ate. A lot.

A few weeks back Anker and I were invited by his support group to celebrate one of their founders' birthdays. We went to Hotel 540 for the party, and it was a nice afternoon. They had a buffet of lunch fare; and it was very good. I may have eaten too much. Maybe. The cake was good, too. After, we wandered around the local thrift stores, and bought a few things. So, that was our date for the week.

Yesterday was Anker's birthday. It was bit of an interesting day (financial worries, and …

Weekend Update...from LAST Weekend

Hi. I am April. I used to have a blog. Anyway, moving on.

I thought I would quickly do an update on last weekend. Clearly, I haven't been in the blogging mood/mode. But I still want to do updates once in awhile.

LAST week was kind of boring...I only worked one shift, and I had a staff meeting (or was that the week b4? I can't remember). And I also looked after H twice, so that was fun. He is so sweet. I heart him.

So, last Friday, I went to the church to pick up a form that I had asked them to fill out for hubby. I ended up staying for (after getting invited to) a mom's Bible Study. They were doing an Elisa Morgan Study on Women of the Bible. It was nice to hang out and relax and be with people. I grabbed some Tim Hortons (a belated breakfast) and read some magazines, and then I went to the mall. I wandered around, which was really nice. I visited my friend, and her sister, who was also there, which was really fun. We had a lovely time...complete with tea and ginger cookie…

This blog title comes courtesy of Brantley's blog. I read about her Ocean (s) back in January, and when I wanted write about what we've been going through the last bit (mainly this past couple of weeks, especially this past weekend), and I was thinking of blog titles, I remembered this. Actually, yesterday, Aunty Shelley and I went to a church (that my friends go to) that we had never been to before. Her friends were trying it out, and asked her to come along with her. They sang Oceans, and that made me remember this this post.  {Oceans by Hillsong} You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds…

Sunday Social

Hi everyone! Yes, I am still alive!! I have a bunch of posts that I have started, but I need to finish, and Five on Friday is back (along with Oh Hey Friday), which I didn't even link up with (but still may), and there are two more link ups this month....

Remember Blog-Tember that was going on last month (which I never participated in)? Well, now they have Blog-Tober (I wonder if they have Blog-Vember, and Blog-Cember?), which I will try to do a few posts for this month. Plus my regular (alone/non-link up) posts to do. Sheesh! This is turning into a full time job!! :)

Even though I haven't been working (yay for time off/lots of watching TV/DVDs, reading, etc, boo to no money), I seem to not have the blogging bug lately. I have just been blah, and not really into documenting stuff. But, hopefully I can do a few posts here today, in the next few days.

So, on to SS :)

Linking up with Ashley again.

1. What is your favorite month and why?
My birthday month, duh!! LOL I guess that wou…
