I noticed yesterday that it has been 6 weeks since I last posted here. In case anyone checks this page any more I felt I should at least say I haven't dropped off the face of the Earth! Life is moving along at a rate of knots and as usual I have little to show for it. I have taken up walking again, as in going for walks. I joined the YMCA so that I could walk indoors on very cold, or very hot days, even going so far as to doing a yoga class. I have the aches and pains to prove it.
Last month the girls (Olivia and Bronwyn) had a PD day so we went to Purple Woods Conservation Area for the Maple Sugar Festival. It was sunny and bright. but bitterly cold. Never the less, we enjoyed walking around and going for a horse drawn wagon ride through the snow.
The weather is beginning to pick up a little now, and Gill and I walked along the Harmony Creek Trail one day. Still very little happening, but I did get a photo of the moss growing on this nurse log. Otherwise, apart from birds and, surprisingly, the occasional butterfly and bee ! , there was no sign of life.
Our three youngest grandchildren all had birthdays in March. Madison (above) was 4. She asked for a Princess party, and Sleeping Beauty showed up, and entertained her and her friends for the afternoon. I asked her if she was surprised, but 'No' , she said. 'I asked Mummy to tell her, so she came'. The confidence of the young. Here is Madison suitably attired for a Princess Tea Party.
On Saturday of Easter weekend, I finally got to meet Pea of Pea's Corner, after over 6 years of 'knowing' her on line. I felt as if I had always known her, there were no awkward silences, and we chatted away for 2 hours! We both agreed it would not be 6 years before we get together again.
Ivo had his cancer check up in March and was found to be clear, this marks 12 months cancer free for him.
I hope where ever you are that Spring has sprung, and if you are South of the Equator that you are enjoying a glorious Autumn.
Bye for now.............
