ALL TOGETHER NOW – WE WANT SPRING!!!!!!

What a wonderful Mothers Day!  This mother enjoyed going to our regular Sunday morning church service and playing the awesome piano as the people are coming in.  Then off to Burger King for lunch, having the son and grandchildren over for a visit at home in the afternoon, (complete with Mothers Day hugs (and while we were at it, we took a picture of Nana and her children and grandchildren which we have not done in quite some time), and then on to a special Mothers Day Cowboy Church at the Heritage Centre in the evening.  Doesn’t get any better than that, in my books.  It was also a blessing to phone my sister whose children do not live nearby, and hear her up and in good spirits for a change.  She is having many health issues and lots of bad days.  I was thinking Mother’s Day might be one of those bad days…

FIRST MAJOR SPRING STORM

In the 30 odd years we have lived in Prince Albert, we have never seen the likes of the storm that occurred at 1:30 p.m. on Good Friday.  I swear the crack of lightning that shook Red Wing Terrace was akin to the crack of lightning that rolled the entrance to the tomb open!  John was in the living room of our home and said that he saw a HUGE flash of red immediately outside our front window!  Much too close for comfort!

HEAVENLY SUNSHINE!

What a gorgeous day!!  It was time to wash some bedding and what a nice realization that Spring has Sprung and I could be on my clothesline platform hanging out my nice fresh clean clothes without having a winter jacket on!!!  Yay!  I am sure that for the most part clotheslines are a thing of the past;  however, as long as I am able and my clothesline is in the back yard, it will be my pleasure to use it…
