Weekend Wrap Up

Ahhh...the weekend!!!

I actually didn't do a ton sadly. I managed to go my dentists appointment Friday afternoon, then I was out of it for the rest of the day, as I was sedated (they fixed my chip..again!). I went to sleep, woke up for an hour, then went back to sleep at 10. That was my Friday night.

Saturday, I slept in, hung out, then met up with the girls for coffee. I went to the library, I grabbed a few things for supper, and came home. I watched Eddie the Eagle, and The Light Between Oceans, while Anker watched stuff in the living room. We had chicken dinner from Safeway for supper.

Sunday, I went to church, then we had a potluck. I went to Wal-Mart to grab a few things, and came home and relaxed for the rest of the evening. I managed to book a flight for hubby for next month to go to The Island (they have e-trasnfers now!), and then watched God's Not Dead 2, and The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler. We had left over chicken dinner for supper.

That was our wknd! See, I …


From Sunday-Weds last wk, I went to the Ranch for a few days. I had initially thought about staying in the B&B, but it ended up being booked, so stayed in one of the guest rooms. It was a fun 3 days away, and I had such great time visiting, relaxing, and eating :)

I skipped church on Sunday, and left around noon; loaded with snack, movies, tv series, and magazines. I love driving myself; I don't have to worry about the traffic, I can go at my own pace, stop when I want, etc. I got in around 2:30. Mom, V and I watched an episode of Dateline, then I helped Mom out with some things at the B&B. Cadence came down, and we watched Safe Haven with Mom. I hadn't seen in awhile (I have the movie), and it was good to see it again. Then, after, C, V and I had snacks, and wine while we watched Frasier. I think we were up until 1:30.

Monday, we three girls visited (C stayed over), and we went about our respective activities. I helped Mom with laundry and cleaning up the kitchen. H c…

Family Weekend

The weekend of March 10-12, most of we siblings got together at my parents' place for a birthday/welcome home wknd for Vienna. Mom had planned it a few months prior, as it was a milestone bday for her, as well as her coming home after being gone for over 2 yrs (she did come home two yrs ago in June for a month, so I guess it was only 20 months that she had been gone). It was a wonderful weekend, with lots of fun, food, laughter, and family :)

I ended up taking the Friday off, which is was a good thing, as I hadn't done a thing to get ready prior, so I spent most of Friday getting ready. I packed, vacuumed the car, gave Mom lunch (she came over for a few minutes to grab lunch on her way to pick up my oldest/younger brother and his family from the airport), ran some errands, and picked up Grandma from the airport. It had snowed the night before, so I was very stressed on how the roads would be, but by the time she came in (her flight was delayed 2 times...another good thing, as …

Friday Things

Happy Monday!! I hope you all had a great wknd. We are on a two week spring break, so I am pretty happy about that. I am resting, reading, visiting family/friends, going out for coffee, errands, library, watching tv/movies, and I hope to get some cleaning done this week. Here are some Fives from last week.

1) Time with Family (During Spring Break)

I went out to spend time with my family over the first few days of Spring Break. I will probably blog about it this week. I had a great time, resting, visiting with family, and watching movies/tv.

2) Things for our Bedroom (sheets/duvet set/mirror)

After we got our Tax Return back, we decided to head on over to Jysks to grab a few things. We actually went to get a new cat tree for Calico (see below). I found a duvet set for $14! I actually thought it was $20, but when I got to the till, it was $14! Yay! The sheets were about $15 (I think), and I also found a mirror for $5. Cheap stuff FTW.

3) New Cat Tree

We saw a new cat tree in in the fly…

First Day of Spring!

Spring is FINALLY here!!!!

I am at the ranch for a few days. I will blog more about it later (after my blog about the family wknd), but I wanted to stop by and leave you with a few pictures of when H and I went feeding sheep yesterday.

I will post more in the next day or so!


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 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…

Five On Friday

Top O' the mornin' to ya!! I am still around. I just haven't been in the blogging mood lately. All is well, though, I promise. I actually had this ready to go for LAST week, but I never got around to it, so I thought I would post it this week, since they are/were the same, anyway (save for the popcorn/spring break switch out).

Here are my faves of the week:

Spring Break!!! 

We are officially on Spring Break for then next two weeks. I am very excited! Oh, don't get me wrong, I love my job, but I am very much needing a break. With only one PD Day btwn NYD and end of Feb, we are all feeling it. I DID take two days off (one each time), which was wonderful, and that really did help, but I am still exhausted, and needing a break.

Sister Arrived Home Safe

Vienna arrived home from The Philippines on March 6th. We are all so happy to have her home. 

Family Weekend

We M family had a lovely family weekend last wknd (of which I will blog about), and it was wonderful (save for the sn…

Five on Friday

Hope every had a lovely week! Our went by really well, and quite fast, thanks to the 4 day work/school week!

K, this was to be put on TWO Fridays it is a bit out of date...but it is still relevant.

So, here are my fives for the week:

1) A Great Score on a DVD/VCR/Flat Screen TV
A couple of weeks go, I went on a few FB ISO/Classified pages, and asked around for a flat screen tv and or dvd/vcr machine. I ended up getting both for 60 bucks. My old tube tv looked like there was angels on it all the was much too white, the colour was off, and it was really getting on my nerves, and I was getting tired of it. So, I decided to do something about it.

2) A Busy Social Calendar

A couple of weekends ago, I was super busy over the wknd. It was actually a bit too busy for my liking, but I did enjoy spending time with my friends. I blogged about it in this post, so you can read about it here. I also had wings with my friend last Tuesday, I had coffee with the neighbours on Satu…

She's Here!!!

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…

Weekend Wrap Up

Happy Tuesday!!!

I hope you are all having a good week. Today felt like two days in one, but, at least tomorrow is Hump Day, and it is a 4 day work week for me, so I am happy!

Here is last wknds WWU:

Friday: After work/school (it was a great wk, btw), I ran a few errands, tried to find a tax program, and then came home. I was hankering for mutton chops (no nasty PETA-related emails, please), so I cooked them, and then Anker and I ate dinner (he had veggies and potatoes), and watched the news. I ended up making cookies and banana muffins. The cookies turned out well (I had made the same recipe a month or go, and they turned out really chewy...Anker liked I decided to make them again...and they turned out I made them wrong last time, or I made them wrong this time..anyway..they turned out well), the muffins did not. I had a bath, and then watched Nine Lives (funny movie), and of course, did my FB, etc. I actually went to bed at 11-1130, or some such silly…
