Mid Week Already

I think we have had all four seasons in the last few days. We had freezing temps up to -15, then it warmed up to 10 degrees and we had plenty of fog, wind and rain. Yesterday afternoon it began to snow and it snowed right till I went to bed. We were awake most of the night as the wind blew so hard.

Jayne had a wonderful 13th Birthday. We had a lovely Roast chicken supper with all the trimmings.

I made from Jayne's request a desert pizza birthday cake.

Just what she ordered

Here are a few pictures from Saturday night

Jaynes birthday supper was super delish. She had nachos, Jill and I had fish &chips.
Jill did not want cake just ice cream.

The girls

We had our very own box seats. Ours even had a couch in it.

Jillian also got her report card on Monday and it was straight A's as usual. Way to go Jill!
Justin and Jayne only get there's later at different times.

Tuesday was one of those days that I wished I could have just went back to bed and let it go by.

It started off with a cool morning, with having to get the fires going. The kiddies got up to maple sausages, and pancakes.
Jayne got up not feeling good,and she did not touch her breakfast. She had a sore belly and sore head. After taking something for it she decided to go to school and at least try as she has so much work at school going on right now that she would fall behind staying home.
It was also nurse day for my Mom. She called late as we now have a new nurse. This put me behind:(

Mom was not having a good day, she was very week, hallucinations, and a low sugar:( but the nurse also decided there was not to much they could do and decided only to come every second week now....again :(

I was only able to come home later then I usually do and I came home to no power. The power did come back on after a couple of hours, but no phone. It is still out and the phone company is not sure why and what is wrong

Then I allow the kids to bring there iPods to school with them as long as they keep them in there book bags. It is a long bus ride and they find reading on the bus makes them motion sickness.

Well poor Jill had hers in her book bag and a little boy in her class took it out of her front pouch of her book bag while it was on her back. She did not know until she got on her bus. She thought he was just punching on Her back.
She cried all evening.
I had to go into town this morning and take Jill to school so I could let the teacher know what had happened. they are going to look into it.
Jayne came home feeling better. Thank goodness. Hubby came home from work a little early, and Justin went to set some more snares.

We had chicken fried rice, boneless pork chops in cream of mushroom soup, and coleslaw.

I did up after supper a 5 gallon pale of beautiful ripe tomatoes that were grown in a greenhouse and given to me from a friend of ours that supply produce to the local grocery stores. He dropped them off Sunday and I have ben putting them off. What a lovely treat.

The kiddies have Friday off for teachers meeting and were are planning a family day to the big city three hours away. Hubby is taking the day off, and my Dad has it off as well to look after my Mom. I am looking so forward to just getting away with my family.
We want to get a little Christmas shopping done, go to the big craft sale, go to John Derre, Costco, and the big Mall. And yes even Wal Mart. :)

Tonight's supper is fried steak, and cheese scalloped potatoes.
I so hope Jill comes home Happy.
well off to Moms for the day.


  1. I certainly hope Jill gets her IPod back. Happy birthday to Jayne. Her birthday pizza looks delicious. You asked about our sausage making. I can't tell you a lot as this is the first time we have done it. We just used a store bought breakfast sausage mix (Mrs. Wages). It is very good though. We are wanting to try our hand at sausages that require casing. Have you ever used it? I hope you have a wonderful day with your family Friday. It sounds like so much fun. God bless.

  2. We have had all sorts of weather here too. On Wed. we went to get our Christmas tree, and it was so warm that we didn't need jackets. Then yesterday it was so cold we could hardly stand it out there, lol! The birthday cookie looks delicious! And the box seats sound like so much fun! Definitely lots of birthday fun at your house! I am sorry your mom is not feeling well. She certainly has had it rough!!
