Sunny Monday ☀

It’s a sunny warm Monday here in Nova Scotia. A PERFECT way to start the week.

I had a few colourful visitors this morning ( did’t get my camera quick enough) telling me it was time to fill up my bird feeders. I love watching these little feathered visitors in the morning and Abby gets excited about the word “birds” . So first thing on my list…put seed in the feeders ✔

This weather gets me thinking about summer and before you know it, it will be vacay time! David has time off in May, June, July & September this year ( for summertime vacation) Yay!!!!! Even though we don’t have any big travel plans this year…it’s a “stay at home” “enjoy our own province” kinda year…I’m planning, oh yes I am! 😂 May vacation will be mainly yard work. I’ve got his “work order” started. June and July we will relax at home and do some day trips and exploring.

I will give you a sneak peak at one little “getaway” I am planning. We are going to spend a couple of nights here in July.

What do ya think? I can’t wait!!

There’s no time like the present to start getting things on my list! ✍

It’s a PERFECT day for a BBQ dinner.

Well, that’s all for now…have a great day!

 

Happy 1st Anniversary

It’s been a whole year already!!

Andrew and Kristina are celebrating their first Wedding Anniversary! Here is a look back at a few of my favourite Wedding pics.

Happy 1st Anniversary!

Wishing you a wonderful day celebrating!! xo ❤

from Shenyang with love… 🌸❤

Ahhh…Spring. April. and Blossoms.

My Chinese friends know all too well that it is my favourite time of year and they also know me well enough that even after leaving Shenyang almost 3 years ago ( wow it’s been that long) that I still miss and long for the April days of walking in “my” park when all the blossoms are peak!

So, Sunday was a gorgeous blue sky day in Shenyang and they went to “my” park just to take pictures especially for me!

Ahhh…how I wish I was walking here today…

Thanks so much for the thoughtfulness! ❤

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!

 

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!!

 

Morocco in VLOG

Our son James enjoyed a wonderful week in Morocco for his Spring Break. I shared a few of the great photos he took BUT now you’ve gotta see these videos.

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!
