Well, I finally figured out how to sign up for Facebook!

It is really for my nieces and nephews to keep me posted on the things they are doing with kids and family. I have a picture in my mind that it will be like one of those never ending Christmas letters, we'll see!

I got a call and a series of emails from my accountant, the income tax is finally finished! My total tax liability this year was $9.00! It cost me a small fortune to find out that I owe $9.00 and I am sure that it will cost the government just as much as it did me to process the files, no wonder the country is going broke!

Off to the farmers market this morning, hoping to find some locally grown asparagus and some salad fixins!

Tuning up my drumkit for a job tonight. Every so often we get a unique job like this sort of thing. We play a birthday party for some artist in his studio on an island up near Alagonquin Park. I think we have to load our gear in a boat, or something. We have been invited to go early for potluck. You don't have to ask me twice....

Just waking up and thinking on a bike route for the day. I was going to the farmer's market, but it's not open until the middle of may.

Aunt Bea, we knew you could do it!

I'm contemplating crockpotting the ham that's taking up so much space in the fridge.

Recovering...but in a good way.

We just had a few hours visit from Glenn's daughter and family from Lexington. They had a new baby daughter about a month ago so we saw her for the first time today. She's beautiful and an awesomely good baby. Their other daughter, just turned two, is so much fun and a very good big sister.

I made breakfast of all kinds of waffles...Mickey Mouse waffles, waffles shaped like pigs, cows, chickens and barns, waffles that looked like roses. You name it. Of course, the two-year-old HAD to have a Mickey waffle. Her mom and dad loved the barnyard critter ones. Breakfast was a blast!!

For several hours the house was tossed with toys, dolls and stuffed animals. The oldest daughter, Wells, is beginning to talk a blue streak and amazingly articulate for her age. We all played our brains out and are ready for a nap.

Sounds wonderful, Katie! I love two year olds!

I am trying to keep awake so I can get something done while DH is at a work course. I have having a lot of body pain right now which is normal after a couple of weeks in my pain program - as I haven't kept up with fitness over the last few months and am now doing regular work ours there, not to mention taking the stairs up and down all Thursday at the hospital and commuter train. I need to come up with a happy medium of how many staircases per day.

So I am doing little sorting and cleaning projects alternated with rest.

Warm weather is her so SO is out in the garden. I was commissioned to cut down a dead sapling. Sadly, I had a small hand saw. Found out I was sadly out of shape.
