If it’s not raining y’all, it’s windy. 70 kph wind gusts yesterday and today. It wouldn’t be so bad if it was a bit warmer, but it’s only 10C (50F). At least it’s not raining. Or snowing. Friends of ours in Newfoundland got snow yesterday. Not just some flurries or a dusting, but enough for snowball fights and sledding! Here we are approaching the end of May and they’re still out snowshoeing.
So, whether you’re enjoying sunshine and warm weather or out building igloos, here is this week’s share. Happy reading!
I had my share of mother’s growing up. My own mother who made sacrifices to make sure I got to play sports – baseball, soccer, and in high school, wrestling. Then there we all my friend’s mothers who often times allowed me over for sleepovers and would feed me and make sure my mom knew where I was. Then there were my two mother-in-laws who took me into their family as if I was one of their own.
Then there is DW, the mother of my children. Not only does she keep our kids in line, but she’s taken over keeping me in line, too. Kind of like the passing of the torch.
Sorry about that. My caps lock was on. Here’s our forecast for the rest of day, tonight, and tomorrow morning.
This is what Friday’s forecast looked like.
This is what Saturday’s forecast looked like.
This is what Sunday’s Forecast looks like.

This is one of my favorite posts of the week. I get to share what you shared with us. The perk is when others then share what I wrote. A huge thank you to all those who have shared my writing. It never goes unnoticed and is always appreciated.
The A to Z Challenge has come to an end until next year when we decide to take on this task yet again. It was fun, as always. This year I didn’t miss a single letter. Though, a few posts just barely made it in under the wire. I’ll let you know how the month went tomorrow. Tonight, I’d like to share one more time, some others who also finished up the challenge spectacularly.
17 weeks seems such a small amount of time. Especially when you compare it to the 35 weeks we have left until Christmas. However, this time next week will be the last day of April. Mother Nature, being the fickle beast she is, decided to give us 2 inches of snow last night. It looks more like Christmas a week after Easter than it did on Christmas! Go home Mother Nature, you’re drunk.
I found some of these by searching the tag #atozchallenge in my reader. I found some new blogs to follow. Hope you do to!
S is for Stories – 6 word stories and a 5 year gift…
Hang in there Lent folks, this is your last week of abstinence.
Warm weather is upon us. The sun is shining and the winds are calm. Friday’s rain made the snow go all gone. The boys want to go out to play, but mean old dad is making them clean/tidy up their rooms in order to gather up all their dirty laundry so that I can wash. They mooed about it, but I gave them the option of playing outside or wearing dirty clothes to school. Smart boys chose to gather laundry and tidy their room first. Mark one in the win column for dad!
Because I forgot to change the date and time of yesterday’s post, it was published 8 days ago. I thought I’d share it (aka shameless plug) because I thought it was pretty funny. I wrote about frog babies, nerves, seeds, and testicles.
Yesterday was the first day of the A to Z blogging challenge. Today is a day of rest. We’ll pick up with “B” tomorrow. Our local weather forecaster (that’s a link to his video) has predicted 30 cm (12 inches) for Wednesday. WTF? Go home Old Man Winter, you’re drunk.
Not perfect, but definitely good enough…
I was in the shower with the 5 year old yesterday. I needed to shave and he was dirty so we joined forces. At the end of it we were standing in ankle deep water from Bang having put the plug in the drain. I started stomping and splashing. He laughed and splashed with me. The curtain was closed so I thought it was safe. But then DW comes busting through the door like she was a one woman SWAT team. Then I heard the smoke detectors blaring. I thought for sure I was going to have to flee a burning house wrapped in a towel. Turns out the bathroom floor somehow got flooded and water was pouring from the smoke detector on the ceiling directly below the new pool room formerly known as the bathroom. The water shorted the detector and set it off. Since all three detectors are wired together they were all blaring. Because they were blaring, the bird was squawking. DW’s blood pressure soared. We have a guy coming to find out why our pool bathroom decided to empty into the floor below.
And in case you missed it last week, we took a short 3 day vacation to do some visiting and touring. You can catch the highlight video of friends, family, a science museum and animal rescue facility here.
So I didn’t do a Sunday Share yesterday. I did laundry instead.
Today is the first day of spring! We celebrated by shovelling 8 inches of snow out of the driveway. The wet and heavy kind.
Our road trip went well. We accomplished the three things we set out to do – Discovery Centre, visit the boys cousins, and Hope for Wildlife. The Discovery Centre was overcrowded as was March Break and every kid in Nova Scotia was out of school. Visiting DW’s brother and sister-in-law was great. Hope for Wildlife was as uncrowded as the Discovery Centre was crowded. We are planning a trip back this summer when the weather is warmer. I made a vlog style video documenting the trip. I’m currently working on uploading it, but it’s moving as slow as a toddler up the stairs. It’s uploaded! Please check it out. It’s lots of fun!
