It's been busy. Again. As usual!!
Busy is good thou.
Like the saying goes, "A busy mind is a healthy mind!"
Although at times I think the line between healthy and insane is very fine....
Writing a blog post is at times next to impossible for example.
I'll start one... get interrupted and lose track of my thoughts.
They are pretty scattered anyway so to string anything together into something that make sense can be a challenge!
We had my youngest sister and family staying with us for a nite.
She and I had time to go for a mudsauna with 4 other ladies, fun!!
Her family and mine also went down to the city's harbour and fort and enjoyed ice-cream on a beautiful sunny day.
Summer is coming!
I forgot how wonderfully sweet the warmth of the sun can feel.
It's like winter is finally losing its grip... Yessssssss.
Yesterday one of our cats had 2 kittens.
One died :( but the other one is snuggling with his (we think it's a boy) mom!
It's her first kittens, and it amazes me how well she just KNOWS how to care for her little one.
If the kitten makes the tiniest squeek, she's making sure he's ok right away!
The kids are obviously very excited and I guess Hubby and I are too...
It's hard not to be weak for the miracle of life and God's little creations.
Many times lately I've thought of so many things to write about, and then when I sit down my mind goes blank!!
We have a busy summer ahead of us, lots of company coming this way.
Lots of work for Hubby to do, although we really hope he can take a little vacation in July.
The 2 oldest are hoping to go to Sweden for a few weeks, but they have a hard time leaving the cats behind...
Our other cat is due in a few weeks, so more kittens to come!
School will be done 1st weekend in June, and thankfully so!, with the nights being light so late, it's really hard to get the kids to bed at a decent time.
It's light to around 11.30 pm and then the sun rises after only 4 hours or so.
I'll be wide awake at 4.30 am, sunshine streaming in to our bedroom, birds chirping...
It's beautiful but also tiring! I'd like to get some more sleep!
I love the green trees and wild flowers and blooming bushes.
I don't love the viper I saw in the grass while taking the little kids for a walk in the woods.
Oh yeah, Hubby and I had a little getaway a few weekends ago.
We drove an hour south to a coastal town where we just enjoyed peace and quiet, food and a visit to the local Maritime Museum.
We have our 15th Anniversary in June, so we wanted to celebrate it by going somewhere.
It wasn't anything super exotic or fancy, but I so enjoyed our little vacation!
A needed break too since Hubby has been working late evenings and most Saturdays.
I guess that's all for now.
When our computer is in a better mood I'll post some pictures of the kitten!!
