We had a few inches of snow in the night and today we have beautiful blue sky and sunshine and not a bit of wind. I love the look of the freshly fallen snow on a sunny day. I like the way the evening is so bright too from the snow's reflection.
I am excited to see that people all over the world are really taking a peek at my writing. I really do wish everyone would realize a comment occasionally would "make my day"!! I need some feedback please - good or bad. Also any new ideas for future blogs would be great! Please don't be shy..... I am taking a big risk throwing out my life here too.
I am sorry there is no recipe, no recommend but this week has been interesting. I have been needed. My Mother who is 85 has had a pain since last Saturday in her head. We went to emergency and sat there for about 3 hours waiting to see a doctor who advised her that she had a virus - it can cause a pain sometimes (shooting) . She is living in an assisted living home not too far from us and gets a bit lonely. I spent a few hours there today - I took some tea, kind of a chocolate blend from David's Tea and we enjoyed a cup. Today my husband is also not at his best after having dental work done last week. As he says " I went in with no pain and now I have pain". I feel so bad. When he eats or drinks he has terrible pain and tomorrow he has to have a root canal.
You know how we love to eat!! Oh my - now I feel so bad as he is hungry and then as soon as any food or wine or water hits that area that is exposed - he is in trouble.
We have read that the recovery after a root canal is a few days and then after a week you feel like yourself. Looking forward to that. I made homemade soup and when I got home from my Mom's he had made rice and prawns and a delicious broth to dip our bread for our second course. My husband is a "keeper".
I hope you are all doing well ..... January can be a very hard month. It is a bit of a low for some. In Vancouver we have a few too many grey days. Today was gorgeous! I wish lots of sunshine for you and may you have a great start to the year 2012!!! (don't forget - please either write back to me via my email at www.jacksjule.gmail.com or make a comment after my blog or share my blog please!!)
This is a picture of a lake not too far from us. My Papa on my Dad's side used to live a block away - when he and my Nana lived there it was only a swamp. Since then the city has made it into a lake and they stock it with trout. I think that you can fish if you are over 65 or under 10 years of age. I have walked many time around this lake. It is a great thinking spot, lots of people walk dogs and there are lots of ducks and swans following the sunshine around.
