Facebook Addiction

I Think I may be addicted to Facebook.com. For those of you who aren't on Facebook it's just another way to find and stay connected with your friends. Share photos, information about yourself etc. I am constantly checking to see if there are any new people on or any updates. Plus with the thought of my 10 year high school reunion coming up next year I'm getting a little curious about what everyone has been up to. Maybe I should ease off a little though. I'm sure there haven't been any updates in the last 5 minutes.

West Ed on a Saturday

These words alone should be enough to send shivers up your spine, then lets add a little girl into the mix YIKES. Curt had a hockey tournament for his work at West Ed on Saturday. There was a family skate at one point, I needed to get some sandals, and I wanted to just wander around the mall since Curt hates the place and we would never come otherwise. Nollie and I only went for about 3 1/2 hours. We had a skate, went for lunch and I got my sandals but that was really it. I think it would have been better with the stroller than the carrier because that way she would have likely fallen asleep, but I didn't want to have to worry about maneuvering with my big stroller. Thank goodness Linda & Andre live so close to the mall because I was able to hang out there for the rest of the day. Thanks to Andre & Linda for watching Nollie during the supper. I was happy to know that she didn't scream bloody murder without her mom there.


I was so excited to pick up a new bike seat for Nollie last weekend in the city. I now have no excuses and I should be out biking every day. Nollie and I have taken a few bike rides in the last few days, I think she likes it. I'm a little out of shape though so I have to slowly work up to going any distance. I'll have to get Curt to take a picture of us on the bike, I'll bet we look pretty cute.

Spring Gardening Bug

I've got the gardening bug and the weather yesterday just amplified it. This week I started some seeds and bulbs inside the house. I tried this last year and it didn't work out as well as I had envisioned but I think I have a better idea of what I'm doing this year. Nollie adds a new challenge because I have to keep all the plants in a sunny window but out of her reach. Yesterday I went out to stir up my front bed and add some peat moss, this was slightly challenging since I'm not quite sure where all of the bulbs I planted last year are and I don't want to disturb them, maybe I should just wait a bit. While playing in my front bed thought I noticed that some of my tulips are coming up. I wasn't sure if the bulbs were good or not so this is very exciting, plus tulips are my favorite flower. I'm excited for this nice weather in the next week. I hope to get the yard cleaned up (the dogs are continually dragging garbage, animal carcasses and bones etc into the yard, not to mention the poop everywhere) and start to work on my garden. Curtis is going to try to fix up an old rototiller that was left in one of the sheds and then we can till up the garden and be ready for planting. Oh I love spring! Now I have to find some things to keep Nollie occupied and out of trouble while I work/play outside. Yesterday we went for a walk after lunch and then she slept in her stroller for a couple hours while I worked away outside. When she woke up I let her play in the grass but I have to worry about what she's picking up and eating off the lawn and she doesn't seem to stay entertained for that long on the grass. I think it's tough for her to move around with wet pants, coat, hat, outdoor shoes etc on. We'll have to figure it out because we will be spending lots of time outside this summer. The sun is shining, there is no wind and Nollie is having a nap, what am I doing on the computer. Ciao

Happy Easter


I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. We stayed around the ranch, Curt was on call and Grandma & Grandpa Buchan came down. Nollie had a fun time playing with her easter eggs and bucket and even got a few tastes of chocolate. We spent most of Saturday outside tearing apart the old quansit that blew over. It felt awesome to be outside, get some exercise, fresh air and complete the task.
