Around Here

I'm using a little prompt inspiration from Ali Edwards today :)

Around here winter continues on and on and on.  The temperatures have moderated but the snow is still SO deep.  Bob spent the whole day yesterday plowing driveways open so that a big grain truck can get in tomorrow and load out some grain that a neighbor has stored in our bins.

Around here we are rejoicing mightily with Melinda and Tyler as they prepare to move to Fredricton, New Brunswick!  You can read all about it over at their blog.   God is so good!

Around here the substitute teaching days have dried up!  I have a grand total of 2.5 booked for this month.  Not quite sure what to think about this but I'm trusting God on it.

Around here we are celebrating Shrove Tuesday, otherwise known as Pancake Tuesday, and the start of the season of Lent tomorrow.

Around here I have some Health Advisory Council reading and meeting prep to get through today.

Around here small projects are getting worked on.  The decluttering of the basement, farm accounting and using summer fruits and vegetables are keeping me busy.

Around here we are planning for the garden and preparing to start some seeds before the end of the month.

Around here we are enjoying much longer days and looking forward to daylight saving time starting on the weekend.

Around here Bob and I are sharing one computer this week.  A bit of a technology hiatus which is probably a good thing! 

Around here I am remembering that today is International Women's Day and that there are women all over the world to be honoured and to be helped. 
"International Women's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a national holiday."  (source - http://www.internationalwomensday.com/)

Around here it's been a very good day!

  2. It's amazing how much we rely on our computers, hey?! I miss mine too.

    So thrilled for Mel and Ty - so thrilled!

  3. Around here, I'm missing you, my friend!! We will have to try to catch up sometime soon...
