Corner view…………………


Today was a free day!!  An extra day that won’t show up again for four more years!!

So what did you do with your extra day? 

I didn’t do anything special.  I wish I did though. I made breakfast, made lunch and then dinner.  did a couple of loads of laundry.  Also attended a meeting, had coffee with a friend and made tortilla’s with Renee’s class mates, who’ll have a Taco Bar this Friday to raise money for the Salvation Army.  Just another day!

Well It’s the end of my day here and as i sit and type this I realize how easy it is to take the day for granted, to just go through the motions and not make the day count for something. 

I don’t want to do that….  I hope to make March special!!

Happy Corner viewing and thanks Francesca for being such a terrific host!!

Happy Birthday Dad!

 DSCF3659Even though my dad is no longer with us, today was his birthday!

I miss him. I miss the talks we used to have, the laughs, him loving on my kids and just being Dad.  There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t stop to think of him and what things would be like today if he was still with us. 

we still celebrate your life Dad!! 

Happy Birthday!!

Could it be over?



it’s been an unusually warm day today and I’m wondering if it’s over.  winter that is, or am I just wishful thinking!!

The ice is melting fast , and I keep on hearing the heavy thud of ice hitting the ground from the roof our of house.  It’s been a cold couple of months and I can’ believe that I’ve almost been through a whole season of winter here in Atyrau, Kazakhstan. 

The locals keep on saying that this is the worst winter that they’ve had in a couple of years and I keep on telling myself wow and I made it.

It makes me remember what a friend once told me – there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. 

I have nothing to compare it too as this is my first winter ever in my life, so I’ll take the locals at their word.  I’m just thankful that I’ve managed to keep myself busy and that I haven’t had those long winter blue days……..

February is almost over and well March is going to be a breeze!!

Hope you had a great day!
