Oh how I miss…

blossoms in the Spring!!!!

It is so lovely sitting in my living room this afternoon. It truly feels like Spring until you see the snow outside… BUT I do know that the sun is melting it quickly.

Springtime is my absolute FAVOURITE of all seasons!! But, then as each season rolls around I probably say that about each one BUT TRULY, Springtime is a season of freshness and newness of life. Babies are being born,

Here is a pic of a friend’s new baby. How sweet!!

…buds are opening up and ohhhh…the blossoms! The pink blossoms of fruit trees! I absolutely LOVE this time of year.

PLEASE!!! I want to hop on a plane and head to Vancouver, Washington, DC or Beijing!!!! There are pictures popping up on my newsfeed and memories of a Shenyang Spring walking in the park.

Here are some pics that have been popping up of blossoms in the last few days…

Victoria, Canada

Washington, DC

Beijing, China

Ahh…I LOVE them!!!! It takes me back …

Just my sweet remembrance. Hope you’re all having a great week!

 

春分 🌸

It’s Chūn fēn

or the first day of Spring!

Love EVERYTHING about Spring! However we are still getting the COLD here in eastern Canada…

Too far I think because we got MORE snow!!!!!!! ugh….

Believe it or not, today is the First Day of Spring!! You really wouldn’t think so after last night and this morning, here in Nova Scotia.
Now is a great time to start feeding the birds. There have been lots of robins on my lawn. They’re now making their way back to Canada and a feeder is a useful source of food for them on their journey. During this time of the year, birds are able to rapidly gain weight so they have enough energy to fly the far distances required.

Happy 1st Day of Spring! ( ps I put ALL my snowmen decor away so please no more SNOW)

RELAX today!

David & I are sick. We have terrible colds!! Mine is really affecting my sinuses causing me to be so dizzy, and David is congested and coughing and coughing. We are so tired and are not sleeping. Ugh…guess that’s what happens when you go from hot and sunny to freezing and SNOW!!

Yes, more snow!!!! Snow this past week and more snow today!!!

 

So…we are cozy inside RELAXING and chatting about Spring and Summer ideas.

Can’t believe tomorrow is the first day of Spring. Yikes!

Here’s to MORE snow!!! NOT!

A new hobby…short lived…

When we were on our cruise vacation, our son James tried out a new hobby!

And here is how he made use of this new hobby!

A great way to showcase the newest addition to our small town Bridgewater.

And a view of the Dingle Tower in Halifax

BUT…SADLY…NOW due to new drone regulations implemented  March 16, 2017…it will not be possible to do any more of these type of videos.!

Oh well, thanks James. Your videos are great and it was nice while it lasted!!

 

Wear RED!

Yesterday was “green day” and today is “red day” BECAUSE I am showing my support! We have a few friends who are RCMP and RCMP wives and this day is near and dear to their heart.

Wear Red on Saturday March 18th for the RCMP. 

Remembering
Reg #57789- Cst. Richer DUBUC, 42
End of Watch March 6, 2017 Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Quebec, CANADA

The Spouses of the RCMP are asking you to Wear Red wherever you are, whatever you are doing on Saturday March 18, 2017, the date of his Regimental Funeral, in support of fallen RCMP Officer, Richer DUBUC, who tragically lost his life in the line of duty on March 6, 2017. Constable DUBUC leaves behind a wife and four children.

It is with great sadness that we must embark on another WearRed campaign, we in the RCMP family would like to say how truly grateful we are for the outpouring of love and support with our previous WearRed campaigns in June of 2014, January, 2015 and, April, 2016. Red was worn across our great nation and worldwide. Our officers and their families felt and appreciated your love and support. We thank-you from the bottom of our hearts for making such tragic times in our lives a little less lonely.

The Spouses of the RCMP have created an event to show their support for fallen Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu Integrated Border Enforcement Team, RCMP Officer, Richer DUBUC. We cannot all be in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC for the memorial service but we can still show our support wherever we are. Let us WEAR RED on Saturday March 18th to show that the fallen officer, his family, and all members of the RCMP are in our hearts. Please share this event and invite all your friends.
It would be wonderful if the Sea of Red RCMP Serges weren’t alone on Saturday, stand with them! Thank-you!

Constable Richer DUBUC will be laid to rest on Saturday March 18, 2017 at 3:00 pm (Eastern Time Zone). Garrison St-Jean Military Base (25 chemin du Grand-Bernier Sud, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec). It will be a RCMP Regimental Funeral.

So today I will wear red and say thank you to the many RCMP that so faithfully serve and protect our country!

Happy GREEN Day! 💚☘💚☘

Cheers! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! ( Starting the morning with a green smoothie lol)

Do you know how St. Patrick’s Day came to be?

It all started in the 400s with Patrick, an Irish priest. After his death on March 17, 461, he was celebrated as a saint in the church. St. Patrick’s Day as we know it, was brought to North America by Irish immigrants in the 1840s following the potato famine. They turned the day into a celebration of their home country.

St. Patrick’s Day occurs annually on March 17 in observance of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. What began as a religious feast day in the 17th century has evolved into a variety of festivals across the globe celebrating Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing…and a whole lot of green. 💚

And now for the green…

Green clothes

Green dog…well just a shamrock scarf around her neck

Green snap chat and bitmojis

Can you tell I have too much time on my hands today…lol

AND…of course GREEN FOOD!!! ( no Irish stew and green beer haha)

Wishing you a great weekend! 💚

Check out these 4 videos!! Tell me what you think.

They are amazing!! New places added to my Bucket List lol 😛

Sunday Spring forward

No sleeping in…

David made it to church on time! I stayed home today still a little dizzy. BUT I did get all my blog posts caught up! So…if you have a few minutes, grab a cup of coffee and curl up and go back a week in time on my blog and you can read all about the wonderful cruise vacay we enjoyed! If you have never tried cruising, I highly recommend it!

Enjoy your day friends!

Abby did you have a good time?

It’s nice to be home! I am having a bit of dizziness…normal for me after flying and spending a week on a ship.

Today it’s COLD!!!! We are catching up with laundry and getting food and of course picking up our Abby girl from Nana & Papa’s. We surprised them, a bit early, because they thought we would arrive home on March 13th.

Did you have a good vacation Abby?
