Sushi Night

A few scenes from our "Sushi Party" last night. Lots of fun....and Saki was had by all! Joel instructed us on the art of rolled Sushi while wearing his Grandfathers Shriners Fez!

Notice the April snow in the is horrible outside. I was supposed to take supper over to Lee's but the roads were awful and I decided not to venture out. I haven't seen the babe since they were in the hospital. I did some baking today so I will take some food over Tuesday.

Introducing Sonia Grace - My New Niece!!

My niece was born this evening at 6:08pm. I was away on a work trip up to Grande Prairie and Lee called me at 8:30am this morning to tell me her water had broken..............2 1/2 weeks early! The plan was for me to be her labour support again and I thought it would be safe to be away but she and babe had other plans! I made it to the hospital around 6:00pm and the little sweetie waited for me and made her arrival at 6:08pm.

Peace River, Alberta

I am sitting in a small hotel room in Peace River. I am here to conduct 2 Food Safety Certification courses, one here and one in Grande Prairie. Normally, I have "people" to do this sort of thing but I am short staffed at the moment so I thought it prudent to take on the training myself. I don't mind too much as I get out of the office but the evening are quite boring in places like this. Not much to do in Peace River. I try and force myself to relax and enjoy the quiet and get some work done.

I am doing well on the "exercise/weight loss project". My friend Brianne & I have a Biggest Loser challenge for the next two months. We are having weigh-ins every week to track our losses. At every 2nd week weigh in the one who loses the least amount has to pay the other $20. If that person gains.....the payment is doubled to $40! Money talks so we are both fairy motivated. I won the 1st pay day by losing 0.2 lb more than her! It is going to be a FIERCE competition!
