Yay, Spark is due.  I know that, you know that, but no one passed it on to the little one, who is still safely cradled inside.  Though by all the activity in there yesterday I’d say this baby is rarin’ to go and ready to pop out.  But again, not my call.  Thanks to everyone […]

The name game

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

On a drive back from Peace River and Grande Prairie, Miranda and I decided to narrow down the potential names for our baby.  We can’t go on calling the little tyke Spark for much longer.  We went through the alphabet writing out any name we both agreed on.  We, of course, stuck to our rules concerning names […]

Gardening and Backyard Shenanigans

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Yay, the garden is in!  Radishes expected in two weeks!  It even looks productive already, cause we bought some herbs and tomatos, and were given even more tomatos by Marian.  Last week was a very busy one, finishing the prep work, hauling in new peat moss to mix with the black clay, and a whole […]

Spark’s Busy Day

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008
