Wrap Up Easter Monday

On Easter Monday morning we and our company decided to walk the Rotary trail while the guys golfed the Rotary golf course. We were hoping to catch glimpses of each other along the way.

After Henry’s Pond we caught a glimpse of the guys across the way.

They drove over to get as close to us as they could.

The littles ran to their dads and Uncle Joshie.

I didn’t have my long lens camera but was able to catch some blurry long distance shots of this pretty bird that is blue.

We had a good time on this cold morning.

Today is the last day of April. It has been a busy April and today I’ll be in the kitchen at church again for the third funeral/memorial service this month. Our church tries to help in any way we can to take some of the burden off the family who’s loved ones have been ushered to heaven. Whatever you can do before your time comes to make arrangements and help with the financial burden would be good to do. My parents paid for their plots and other costs associated with their funerals ahead of time and that was such a relief. The best thing you can do is to make sure you know you are going to be with Jesus. The alternative is not good in any way shape or form. Today is the best time to make peace with God through Jesus Christ.

Goodbye to April and hello to May!

A Relaxed Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving we tried something new with the turkey leaving it in a 200 degree oven after a 350 degree start. This gave us the freedom to venture out on Thanksgiving before our dinner time of 5pmish. The Rotary trail still had a lot of snow on it.

We marveled at the tracks we knew were made by our DIL Jamie as she pushed our grands for a 5k Turkey run that morning in their Bob stroller.

This is Bob the stroller.

Our 2021 Thanksgiving Table setting. My sister Lana folded the napkins to resemble a turkey.

A very blurry selfie to document who was at our table this year. We missed our Coast kids and our DIL Laura’s skills at taking selfies and photos in general…sigh. You were missed, Josh, Laura, Andrew and Katie. Looking forward to seeing you in person at Christmas!

We trust you all had a good Thanksgiving day.

This morning I’ve already packed away all our Thanksgiving decor and we are pulling down the Christmas bins! A Thanksgiving elf was in the kitchen this morning (early) and emptied the dishwasher of our Thanksgiving plates, etc., and that elf washed the remaining greasy platters and roasting pan and put everything away. Woohoo!

Hope you all have a good Black Friday.

A Fly By…

Some of our Canadian friends can still cross the border without any issues. Here’s hoping our border to the North can open again soon.

Colossians 3:1-4 ~ “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”

Mother’s Day has been lovely already and we have one more small gathering to enjoy. Our children all have honored me more than I deserve and it was good to see two thirds of them in person. Our two sons made breakfast for us. Tonight we’ll have dinner together with Jamie’s family. Our gathering will be under 10 people.

Hope you who are mothers had some lovely greetings today.
