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!
Good Morning, Sunday! I hope everyone had a good night’s sleep. Good luck catching that lost hour for those of you who turned your clocks ahead. Crash was up at 6:30 (really 5:30 before the clocks the changed). Bang was up at 7 (really 6 before the time change). Fortunately, this is our March Break so we don’t have school all week. Lots of time for them to get caught up. Or be so tired and cranky that I’ll fear for their survival.
Welcome to week 10. Week 9 was supposed to be lucky because 9 is a lucky number in this house. It was and and it wasn’t. My new GoPro arrived in the mail a month after I sent my broken one back to them. So be on the look out for some fun YouTube videos. Then yesterday we went to file our taxes only to find out we owe. WTH? We don’t owe much, just enough to be annoying.
On a more positive note, I’m not sure if you’ve heard of this “new” show called Little Big Shots. I say new, but it’s second season just premiered tonight. What a fantastic, family friendly show. If you haven’t seen it, Steve Harvey interviews kids who are either smart, funny, or talented and they never fail to disappoint. I made sure to record it as the boys love to watch it, too. I can’t wait to see their reaction to the 6 year old basketball player.
Hope all y’all have a spectacular week! Here’s what I liked reading last week…
Wow. What a response! Thanks to all those who replied to the Sunday Share post I posted on Thursday. Normally on Sundays I share posts from bloggers I follow or blogs I have read and thought you should, too. This time I asked you to share with me so I could share it with others. I usually share five. Today you get 14! It’s kind of like a meet and greet, except you don’t have to do anything but mingle. Go check out some of these posts and I guarantee you’ll find some new follows. We all win!
Well, there goes January. Only eleven more months to Christmas!
I know January isn’t officially over, but it’ll be February the next time I write a Sunday Share. I shared a bunch of blogs yesterday in my Mystery Blogger post. They were a bunch of my favorites. Today, I will share some of the newer ones I have discovered. Maybe you’ll find some new ones to follow here, too!
Some bug has infected our house so you might want to read this from a safe distance. Definitely wash your hands with soap and hot water afterwards. Bang caught it last Thursday. Crash caught it last night. I’m not feeling so hot myself. With the exception of DW and Bang going grocery shopping it’s been a pretty quiet day around here. But you didn’t come here for that. Or at least I hope you didn’t. You came to find some good reads. So what did I find for you this fourth week of January?
It’s a relatively quiet Sunday here. We made it to Church though the boys didn’t earn Tim Horton’s afterwards because of their behavior. On the plus side, their behavior wasn’t so awful to deserve crusifixion. We came home and did a few chores – the boys cleaned their rooms and put away all the clean laundry I created yesterday. I stripped.
The bed sheets are need of washing.
We’re getting ready to go ice skating. We went yesterday and Bang broke his skate trainer so now he needs to learn to skate without it. He can, he just needs to improve. I’ll get some more video of their improvement.
We’re a week into the newest year so I’ll stop wishing everyone a happy new year. It’s getting old. I hope the first week of the new year has been kind to everyone. We just lots of snow, in case you hadn’t heard yet. 4 inches on Friday. 8 more inches last night. Now I’ve got my “lodge socks” on and and chillin’ out with dee-dubya (pronounced “DW”) and a few good reads.
What am I reading? Light Between Oceans and these blogs…
Can you believe there’s only 3 more weeks until Christmas morning? 21 days.
A lot can happen between now and then. A lot willhappen between now and then. I have so much I want to write! It’s going to be a busy week on the blog. Lots of drama. Some comedy. I’m praying for no tragedy.
So while you sit and relax this lovely Sunday, here are a few good posts that I enjoyed so much I though you should read them, too. Happy Reading!
Coach Daddy Some good, really short stories (6 words short!)
The best summary I’ve seen of what Nova Scotia classrooms are like and why there is a teacher strike
True North Nomad
This looks like a good place to escape to should I need place to escape to.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I reminisced about days gone by. That evening I was pleasantly surprised to find that a cousin had posted a video of some football being played in the front yard of my grandmother’s where all used to gather. I saw a couple original players out there playing!
Then once we were done being Thankful for what we have, along comes Black Friday where we go out an get some more. We didn’t do any of the big sales that day. We did a small bit of shopping yesterday, but nothing extravagant. DW has made of list of who we need to buy for, so it’s time to start thinking, buying, and checking names off the list. I would be nice to go somewhere where we can get all done in one big day. One fowl swoop. It’s tough to Christmas shop when the kids are with you. I did it last year. One was in school and one was 4 and so intend on pushing the cart he didn’t see what I had in my hands. He’s 5 now and that won’t work again.
So anyway… here are the posts I’m thankful for this week. One of them is a video. You’re welcome!
