Picture Sunday 10


I’ve been up north at my in-laws all weekend, looking after my mother-in-law while Jeff is at the range doing the monthly match.  Jeff’s mom isn’t that great this weekend; I notice quite a difference since last seeing her two weeks ago… Now I wasn’t sure if it was a bit of the morphine talking but she asked me if she was going to get better and how long she has.  She knows… there’s but time?  No one really knows how long she has…. But she has a chest cold that she’s been fighting for 3 weeks and something little like that for you and I, we’re okay but with a COPD patient?  A simple cold could kill her.  Anyways, when she’s awake, she’s okay and does as much as she can (too much, really, but she’s a stubborn woman).

Weather-wise, yesterday was beautiful and today has been a bit overcast with bits of sunshine in between.  It’s been a really great weekend in terms of weather, especially with it being the beginning of May.  Yesterday, it was 22 °Celsius, which is usually unheard of for Ontario this early in May.  But I’ll take it thank you very much.  I can’t recall the last time I’ve been in a tank top this early in the year. usually the weather here doesn’t start to get really nice until after the May 2-4 Victoria Day Long weekend.


We’ll be heading home after jeff’s match this afternoon. Then we’ll have to get the boys at my mom’s house (I miss them terribly when they’re not with us 🙁 ) and then we’ll be doing food prep for the week and catching up on some TV shows from the past week.

You’ll notice some changes to the comments section. I’ve moved over to Disqus because it’s simple and I like it a lot better than the basic WordPress comments. And it looks like all the comments imported over from WP so that’s good. All was not lost.

Here are some of the pictures that I’ve taken over the weekend.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Get out and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. 🙂

  • Lovely photos – I think you’ve captured the feeling of spring there 🙂 Hope your MIL is on the mend soon

  • Why thank you. 🙂 it was a perfect May weekend in the country.
    Thank you for the kind words. They’re much appreciated.

  • Sorry to hear your MIL isn’t doing as well but I’m glad to hear she still has her spunk (the “doing too much” part). Great weather indeed this weekend and this week. Hope you are having a good one so far. Glad the migration to Disqus went smoothly.

  • Sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. It looks like a lovely weekend weather wise though. I’m going to be wearing shorts for the first time this year on our dog walk tonight, so that’s pretty exciting. I switched over to disqus comments awhile ago too and I love it. It seems that more people prefer it to the wordpress system and I love that everyone is guaranteed to get your response.

  • I agree Lisa. When she stops doing her usual thing, that’s when we’ll know things are not great. She’s fighting so hard and she asked me on the weekend how long she had and it just broke my heart. How do you keep fighting when you know you’re dying? It’s so hard to see her like this….

    Crap gotta stop this. I’ve held it together for a few weeks now but just writing I feel the tears coming…

    Xox thanks love

  • That’s what I like about it! I respond, then you see my response and no checking back. I just don’t have time to email everyone back so Disqus is better! 🙂

    Enjoy your shorts dog walk this evening 🙂
    It’s going to pour here this afternoon or I’d be doing the same after work. The hubby is picking up our babies after work, so I’m looking forward to the reunion. I haven’t seen my fur babies since Friday morning!!


  • So sorry to hear about your Mother-in-Law. I know it’s hard to see a loved one suffer! Loving all your pictures! Happy Tuesday, love!

  • Thanks, love. I just wish there was something that could help her, but there isn’t… So coming to terms with that is tough.

  • You are so good. I am sorry about your MILs health, and it is so awesome that you are there for her. So awesome, but that’s just you. Love all the photos, love the rusticness of them. The daffodils are gorgeous. And the Blue Jay, they are hard to capture, and I can see all his colors. Love it.

  • I just wished she lived closer. They live up in the boonies about 3 hours away. Better than nothing, though.

    There were a ton of blue jays out on Sunday, some yellow and red finches too! It’s really pretty up there.
