Good Evening everyone..
A little post here at the first of the week..
The wind is fierce the last couple of days and the snow has been disappearing very quickly..
I love Spring..
It is my favorite season of the year although I enjoy all seasons really.. Even Winter is not the big dread that I had when I was younger..
I have learned to enjoy the coziness of it all with Terry being retired and all.. So long as my children are not travelling to or from work during a storm I actually enjoy most of it..
But Spring just calls my name.. smile..
We went to the city today and bought a table set for our deck..
We needed a new one but since we spend most of the time at the cottage we only bought a cheap one..
We also plan on buying a Deck Swing but we could only find one at Costco and it was quite expensive so we are waiting for a week or two..
No other store had any for sale..
I don't know what's up with that..
I have wanted a swing for years so I am looking forward to it..
This will be our anniversary present to each other as we did not take a little trip or such..
You who have read the blog for a while know we spend a lot of time at our old farm in the Spring..
Well, the picture above is dear hubby taking in some strapping for the ceiling in the back porch..
He has been puttering away at it for quite awhile now so I have finally started putting a bit of pressure on him to finish..
He has tried to spend a day a week up there all Winter so I am wondering how comfortable that old couch there is.. grin..
He is also carrying newspapers to make a fire which he puts on each time he goes..
The snow is still deep and he has to snowshoe in but after the wind and rain this week we are hoping that I will soon be able to go, too..
As the wind was blowing and the rain coming down I took some books and such and sat in the truck for an hour or two and waited for him..
I worked on my crochet..
I am making a mason jar cozy..
And a few mags and books..
Yup... this is Canada..
Once the snow starts to leave it really doesn't take long, though..
These pics were taken last Friday, I think and our fields today are almost bare..
Then our old back roads look like this..
That dear man I am married to loves roads like this and I detest them..
I made him turn around here because I was not wading in the mud to get out..
On our way home tonight we had to travel through water twice before we reached home as the river has overflowed it's banks..
We just go from one extreme to another but no worry..
We are used to it..
Today with snow piles in parking lots fifteen feet high there were people everywhere with hardly any clothes on...
We are a tough breed, I am thinking..
I prefer a bit of modesty myself but anyway..
A very good thing today is my Mom's 80th birthday..
I posted that we all (17 of us) had taken her out to dinner a couple of weeks ago but her actual day was today..
We are so thankful to still have her with us..
Our Dad has been gone for 25 years and we miss him so but Mom is a going concern..
She bakes pies, breads and such almost every day..
They have a lot of company... smile..
And almost every day she and her husband go shopping..
She told me this morning that she doesn't think she can keep going and picking up cat food or whatever every day..
I told her she should just go every other day then.. grin..
I am just thankful she is quite healthy and so is our Step-Father..
They sure enjoy each other and that is wonderful for not only them but for her family, too..
I had to include this little face..
Well, thank you dear friends for dropping by and leaving your sweet comments..
I truly appreciate it..
I must get to bed and listen to the wind..
It is 10:30 (a bit late for me) smile..
