Happy Mother's Day on a cold blustery Ontario day.

Where are we today ?
         What happened to spring? Got up this morning about 5:30 and watched the sunrise as usual. But heck its cold out there. I see 30 f (-1c) but feels much colder than that with the wind. AND I can see the roof on the house covered with frost!
         But today is Mother's Day and we gonna visit Ma in Waterloo. Suzie and I putter around here a bit then head into town shortly after 11 am. We seeing SNOW blowing about here and there. Now that is a four letter word, especially at this time of year.

         Visit with Ma for a bit then brother Chris arrives, and Sister Lou, brother-in-law Paul and their son Rob. So here we are, all together with ma on Mother's day. She ordered in a mess of chinese food for us and we had a feast! Thanks Ma.
yummy chinese feast for 6 of us
        We all got to chat and catch up for a while and take the obligatory family photo. Every year its different.
        Then shortly after 3 pm we headed out to Shakespeare for a visit with Suzie's Mom and Dad at niece Roslyn's with a bunch more family there. Great niece Sienna is having her second birthday party today. We were late for the party but able to visit with most everybody for a while.
        Eventually made our way back home, turn the heat on in our coach to warm things up a bit. That brutal north west wind here is not letting up, even turned our satellite dish so that  I had to re-align it. Temperatures to freezing tonight but will feel like -6c (21f) with the wind and a ground frost warning too.
         Anywho we are toasty warm (Mr. Heater does a great job!) and double pane windows. Thank ya'll for stopping in and hope everyone had a great Mother's Day.

  5. Snow? Did you say you saw snow and it's almost mid-May? I guess we shouldn't complain about a few drops of rain then.
