Good morning Ladies ! It is the last weekend of February and I am looking forward to see if March can give us more hints of spring , or will it be a repeat of February with winter weather! It is 3f or minus 16c this morning. The sun is trying to come up.
As I signed off on Saturday last week we were about to go on our coffee date. We got away for a while and it was nice just us, husband and wife ❤
We got back and had a pretty quiet evening with a little housework thrown in. On Sunday we went to the usual late morning church , afterwards we went for the coffee and donuts . They were so good as always! When we came back we picked up a ping pong or table tennis table ! It was being sold for $50 and was a bargain. we had to put it on folding tables but it works for now in our unfinished basement.Please excuse the mess !!! This was the first time I played the game in many years, since I was in school ! It will be good for the kids to get used to it. It folds up really nice. Also I took my 3 boys and 2 of their friends bowling as well. I sat it out and enjoyed watching them.
Monday was Presidents day here and the kids were off , everyone else had the day off but I had to work. Tuesday was the start of our big 3 day snowfall ! We all got to work and school , then in the afternoon the snow came ! The forecast was so bad the school called snow days for Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday morning we woe to about 8 inches on the ground. Our Church called off all the ash Wednesday masses/ services and the anointing of ashes on the forehead. Later Wednesday it got worse with drifting snow due to the winds. It kept snowing on Thursday until noon and then it was all done ! Here are some photos.
We were all back on Friday It went by quickly. Friday was a nice relaxing night at home. Yesterday I had some errands to do and catch up on housework( it never ends!) We will be going to Church in a few hours.

Good morning Ladies ! I hope you are doing well as February keeps rolling on towards its conclusion in 11 days time . We have been having some crazy weather since I last posted 2 weeks ago( sorry I missed last week !) It has been frigid cold , Then it got up to 51f or 10c one day. Then 2 days ago we had 2 inches of rain ! It helped to melt the snow a little . Right now we are at minus 5 c or 23f . We are promised some snow , possibly up to 20 inches this coming week !!! I am ready for spring, who is with me !
The last time I was with you we were going to our Daughters confirmation. It was a really chilly morning 11f as we were walking into the basilica ! Once inside though it was a beautiful ceremony for all the candidates . They were anointed by the Bishop with the holy oils , through the holy Spirit to be prepared to live out their faith going forward. There were 40 from our parish with two-thirds being girls ! Afterwards our Daughter joined her volleyball team for a tournament they started without her in the morning . They won the tournament ! Afterwards we went out to celebrate the confirmation in the evening along with our family and her grandparents. Sunday was pretty quiet , but we went to the Knights of Columbus pancake breakfast after church.
The following week was pretty standard for our family. Last weekend I put away all the winter decorations ! Some were part of our Christmas display. Our daughter had another volleyball tournament on Sunday which they won ! In the evening the superbowl took the attention. The commercials were better than the football , and The halftime show was good too! We had a different Valentines day . We had to go to the county government center to renew the kids passports . We might be going on a trip in the summer. I did get these afterwards though below .
The kids had Church class on Wednesday , I was busy driving to and fro ! Last night we had a quiet Friday night in. This morning we are going for a coffee date without the kids and also picking up something for our laundry room.

Good morning Ladies ! I hope you are doing well on this first weekend of February. January is always the toughest month of the year I think. I come down off a high from celebrating Christmas , and it also is usually pretty cold here too. To that point, it is freezing here right now !! It is 9f or -13c . It actually is an improvement as earlier in the week it was -24c or -11 f . We just need to get through these tough days .
I missed writing last weekend , I just got busy but there really was not a lot that you missed from the preceding week. I guess the highlight was our daughters volleyball team finished 2nd in their tournament. The rest was the usual busyness of our life. Also we got photos from my in-laws of their Caribbean cruise … Aruba in January.. I am not jealous… I am not Jealous !!
Last weekend was nice and relaxing with plenty of housework thrown in to keep me on my toes! We went to church Sunday and in the afternoon there was lots of football on our tv . On Sunday evening our daughter had her last church class encounter before making her confirmation today !
Through Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives the candidates the increased ability to practice their faith in every aspect of their lives and to witness Christ in every situation.
It takes place at 10 am so I will need to get moving soon!!! My sister was asked to be the sponsor but she cannot make it today . I will step in for her . We will go out for a meal afterwards .
