A few Odds and Ends from our two days with the kids.
The weather has been erratic. We have snow, cold, warm, rain and freezing rain and around we go again. On a somewhat warm afternoon, I decided to try to get some ice off the driveway (you can also see how icy the road is in the background), The kids managed to turn helping into a game (as you will see a little of this in the video later).
There is always an hour or so of public skating at the arena, but during the holiday break various sponsors step in to make it free.
Here's the shovelling plus skating video. Really, if you're not family, you should probably just skip by this one. (Oh bother, see how I mistyped 'skating' on the vid title. I am the world's worst typist and can barely get through two words error-free.)
After an outing, especially in winter, we tend to stop for hot chocolate and a goodie.
Whilst there, Danica grabbed the camera and snapped this photo. She thought it was hilarious and that I should put it on my business card.
A few other incidentals before I leave off. JJ and I were looking for animals fairly well camouflaged in photos. He was faster than I at this. Sigh.
JJ was feeling poorly one day, so I provided the books and blanket. Ever the pragmatist, Sue provided the puke bowl.
While JJ was ill, Danica and I headed to the corner store for milk. Somehow or other, I came back with a magazine for her and a Star Wars book for him. It was a very expensive gallon of milk to say the least.
Oh yeah, we iced some more cookies left over after the Christmas decorating (of which I previously posted).
Finally, I though you might enjoy one more view of my toboggan tumble. My shoulder was quite sore for a day or three, and my pride is still hurt.
