5 things...February Break Style


It's Winter Break here in our neck of the woods. The boys have been skiing during the day and skating at night. Hockey is almost over....it all depends what happens this weekend. So without further adieu...my five things...

1.We hosted a soup supper on Saturday. Four types of soup, salad, bread, wine and a few good friends on a snowy evening. Great fun!

2. My husband got into the mix with the boys' terrain park. We are now known as the neighbors with the "sick" jump.

3. Valentine's Day was spent at the rink...but I did receive roses. Lovely ones at that!



4. Planning for a big birthday later in the week...



5. Buddy has been happy that the boys are home...well, maybe....poor dog!

and #6...as I write this I can hear birds chirping! Maybe spring will be here...eventually!

The birds have suddenly returned here, too. Well, I don't know if they ever left but they're all of the sudden much louder. With the light mornings, it's so nice to wake up to the sunshine and birds singing!

Happy Winter Break! It's winter break here, too. Alas, not much snow to play in though! We don't really mind though, been spending lots of time exploring the beach.

What a great list! I'm in love with the idea of a soup supper (though know I'd never do it with my anti-social tendencies!). We have buds and birds here...really, really crazy winter.
