What is This Spring You Speak Of???

 Last Wednesday life in Atlantic Canada was beginning to look like scenes from the  popular movie Frozen and now it would seem we are setting up for the Ice Capades!  We have snow, rain, freezing rain, sleet, the whole gambit. What we really need is some sun and heat and maybe even some grass to mow and more HEAT!  We just want to feel normal and not stuck in some never- ending groundhog day (curse that furry little beast).   Arghhhhhh!  It has to end sometime soon right?!

In other news we've changed up the supper routine a wee bit.  Now the kiddos help prepare the evening meal.  This may include chopping vegetables or stirring pots or getting out the needed ingredients or whatever other task that may need to be done. The kids have enjoyed being a part of the process and I think it gives them a new respect for what goes into getting a tasty meal on the table.  They all love baking so involving them in making supper seemed a natural progression.  I enjoy working with them even if it does take longer and involve more clean up.

Is this normal for spring?

 Before the snow fury...

 The progression..
 Full on storm.
 And the morning after--a world of white

And now for something completely different:

Thankful for this little ray of sunshine!

That's right, we only know two seasons here...there's winter, and there's July. But I have to say, much as I wish for spring, today was a wonderfully beautiful day, perfect for making snowmen.
