Simple Sunday & Sunday Night Chit Chat!

Two posts in one.

Yup, I'm efficient!

From Simple Sunday. I love this idea & hope other bloggers will join in.

Our grandson, enjoying the warmth of the sun, on Earth Day. Serious here but he keeps us laughing & makes our days bright!

Our new Cherry Blossom, freshly planted. Two more to plant & two large spiral cedar bushes tomorrow.


"Simple Pleasures: Soothing Suggestions & Small Comforts for Living Well Year-Round" by S. Seton, R. Taylor & D. Greer. Reading in preparation for our upcoming holiday, with a hope that while I am on vacation, we can implement some changes to our lifestyle.


"Games of Thrones". We work hard all weekend for this one treat. Daughters, puppies & one grandson crowd on our bed to watch the newest episode together!

Listening to?

The music from "Games of Thrones". I love it & hope to download the soundtrack.


I helped make dinner tonight. And it was good! No baking today but we celebrated Earth Day & my mom's birthday with a Dairy Queen ice cream cake!

Happy you accomplished this week?

Helped a beautiful healthy new baby come in to the world on Thursday. She is healthy & born naturally, exactly how her mama & papa envisioned.

Attended my 8th Grief Workshop with Alan Wolfelt. Great guy, wonderful presentation & full house.

Delivered my own Grief Workshop to a full house, on a snowy Saturday morning.

Organized, decluttered, shopped & worked hard. Holiday is just around the corner & our plans are well underway.

Looking forward to next week?

Booking the ferry to get to the island on time.

My new classes start this week. Looking forward to meeting new families & watching their journey unfold.

Our book order from Chapters should arrive this week. Can't wait to open the box to reveal new books for our holiday.

The Alberta election is tomorrow. Can't wait for this battle to be over. And hopeful that more people than ever will get out to vote!

Thankful for today?

Warm weather with sunny skies.

New plants to introduce into our budding garden.

Watching our daughter in her first horse show for the year. And she won 3 ribbons!

A dear friend who called to catch up & then popped over for a short visit. I haven't seen her for so long, she met our grandson for the first time today & he's almost 18 months old!

Making dinner for my mom to celebrate her birthday.

A free iced tea from Starbucks to celebrate Earth Day!


  1. The book looks wonderful! Congrats to your daughter on winning the ribbons!! :) Very exciting!

  2. Thank you! She's off to another horse show this weekend. Can't wait to hear how she does once she gets home. Our house is very quiet right now!
