Spring Has Arrived!

Oh today was glorious!

My day started off with a walk around Chinguacousy Park with Cindy and an extra large Steeped Tea. (thanks again Cindy!) The sun was shining so brightly and all we needed were light sweaters.

As for the appropriate footwear...well, let's just say Cindy is on a different calendar than the rest of us...

Even with those shoes she can still walk faster than me! Today we made it around the park in 35 minutes. Last year our record for our final walk was 43 minutes. I think the tea helped me move faster ;-)

And for those of you who may be wondering... I did not win on this cup. Roll Up The Rim To Win is a scam.

Julie played soccer today and was amazing as usual :-) Afterwards, the children and I went to my mother's to visit and they drew all sorts of Easter decorations to hang up on her windows.

Being that it was such a beautiful day, the children and I headed over to the park to let Jordan check things out. She loves the slide. I held her hands while she slid down and Julie caught her. I loved her face as she slid down - head thrown back, eyes closed, huge smile.

While Sam and Julie played at the park, I continued to walk around the neighbourhood. At one time I knew almost everyone who lived here. But ten years has brought a lot of changes and a lot of new families. I had one friend here that I would chat with outside (for hours sometimes!) and I miss her because she moved last year. (Hi Anne!) I bumped into her and her husband at Walmart yesterday and you know how you know you miss someone, but you don't really know how much until you see them? That's how I felt when I saw Anne. I miss having a friend in this neighbourhood to talk about things with.

Well that's about it for today. It's almost....

Remember to turn off all your lights from 8:30 - 9:30.

I hope you are participating, friends!

Last year I experienced Earth Hour while in the hospital, having just given birth to Jordan that morning. It was so awesome to look out my window to see so many homes, completely dark. Very cool movement this is.

Tomorrow is Jordan's first birthday. How has a year gone by already? More on that tomorrow...

Now go and turn off your lights! ;-)
