Time Flies!

Where does the time go? It's been ages since I posted anything. We have had the weirdest Spring ever. One day it is snowing the next it is really nice. Last night we were supposed to get 10-20cm of snow but we only got about 5cm. Most of it was gone by this afternoon and once again it was really nice. We are supposed to be at about 20 degrees C by the middle of next week. I hope we have seen the last of the snow.

We went to see GD#1 in her baton twirling competition on the weekend. It was the provincials so it was quite important. She did really well. She got 3 firsts, 2 seconds and 1 fourth. This is all leading up to going to the world championships in Ireland in August. We are all very excited for her.

We really haven't been doing much around here. I think it's about 7 more weeks of school left before summer break. I know I'm really looking forward to that. Nothing major planned as of yet, just looking forward to the break.

Son #4's kids came over on Sunday for a sleepover. GD is 7 and GS is 4. They were so good, had lots of fun playing and went to bed with no fuss. DH had them all day the next day while I went to work. They had lots of fun at the park.

This is what they brought me when they came over. Two little vases of beautiful crocuses that they had picked on a hill near their house.

I've been playing around with the macro setting on my camera. Some pictures turned out really well, but others were very blurred. I need a lot more practice.
We got a lovely bunch of tulips at work last week for support staff day.
The knitting I had on the needles last post is finished. It's been finished for a couple of weeks but it has been sitting in my laundry room waiting to be blocked since then. So it will probably be a while before it is camera ready. I hate the blocking and sewing together part. I love the knitting part though.
Hopefully I will get my act together and post again fairly soon. I have read a few more books I want to post about.
Bye for now.
