It’s snowy, blowy, and cold.
I know. It’s April. In Saskatchewan. Of COURSE it’s snowy, blowy, and cold….
BUT IT WAS REALLY NICE!
I thought spring was actually here. I shared pictures of us outside in the lovely warm glow of the sun. Shared a picture of the new life peeking through the old rot. And now. Now. After all the early, lovely, life affirming spring time lovelies. Now, it’s snowy, blowy, and cold.
I’m staying inside today. Here’s a picture from my window:
Lily-Ann fell asleep in my arms today… and you’d be hard pressed to find a moment I find more lovely than a moment when I can hold her close and know that she is safe. My love for her is honestly overwhelming at times. And I’ve made sure she knows just how deeply she is treasured, loved, and appreciated. I tell her every day, and more than that, I show her every day. I tell her stories about when I was pregnant, and the things I felt then. I tell her stories about how she came to be, and how much even the nurses loved her… that they all thought she was so special that they had to tell the other nurses, and soon enough ALL the nurses had been by the room to see this perfect special little person that I was lucky enough to have and love. I really am blessed. She’s amazing. So now I’m just rambling. LOL That’s what happens when I get sentimental about my girl. 😉 So…. before I bore you to tears, here’s the photo for today. Just me and my girl.
So, this picture won’t win any awards… in ANY categories. LOL But it makes me happy. Just snapped it with my blackberry held out in my right hand as far away from us as I could reach. Then worked with it afterwards in iPhoto.
What a lucky, lucky mommy am I. 🙂
At twenty to ten and I sit down at the computer only to realize that I haven’t shot any stills today. Took some video of the wee girlie… but haven’t done any still photography. So what’s a girl to do? Well, this particular girl fires up Photo Booth, turns on the comic book setting, and leans in nice and close. 🙂
YAY! I’m a happy mommy today. 🙂 After much research and deliberation we purchased a new-to-us electric-assist bike (sometimes called an e-bike, or an electric bicycle) and a toddler-towing-bike-trailer. We got a super good deal on the used electric-assist bike and found the trailer on sale. So for a total of less than $450 we have a second vehicle. Granted, it’s only going to be good for half the year… but still! No GHG emissions, and an easy way for me and the girlie to get around during the day. I’m excited!
Here’s Damon and Lily-Ann putting the trailer together in the front yard during sunset. The wee girlie and I went around the block four times after it was all put together and hooked up – just to test it out. 🙂 It’s awesome! Can’t wait to get out and about. 😀
On a totally unrelated note: I can’t believe it’s April 5th already! Jeepers. Where the heck has this year gone? Soon it will be time for my mom and me to celebrate our birthdays, then it will be the Green Party of Saskatchewan’s AGM, and not long after that we’ll be full swing into Summer. Jeepers. I just don’t know where the time has gone. Wow.
April Fools? Nah… just a Chihuahua. 😉
Took Roo out for a walk today. Just down the block and back… then let go of her leash and let her tear around the front yard. It’s just what she does. This girl loves to run. Makes me wish they did coursing for Chihuahuas. LOL She definitely has a need for speed. 😀
