Simple Saturday

I had the most delightful day today! Spent a lot of time with my dear hubby in the house that we're renovating on our place. Just the two of us, chatting while we worked. It was so special being together like that...

while the boys played outside on a makeshift slide down one of the snow drifts in our front yard.

I was even invited out for lunch by my dear sister, Tracy, and we spent a peaceful 1 1/2 hours, catching up on our lives. I am so thankful for days like today, everything runs so smoothly and peace and contentment abound.


I also received 2 more blog awards today from my new friend Deborah... Thank you so much!
If you've never stopped by A Different Drum, you should! I have given her two awards recently because I enjoy her blog so much.

So here's what she gave me:

I would like to pass this one on to another hot blog which I enjoy and that would be:
Alicia @ Confessions of a Snowflake.

And this... Marie Antoinette: A Real Person Award.

I would like to pass this award on to Aimee @ Living, Learning, and Loving Simply... I love reading her blog for the realness that she displays there.

Feel free to pass these awards on to whomever you choose, Aimee and Alicia! :o)

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.


  1. The first pic looks like your older boy does NOT want to be in the picture! I think it is truly cute :) Congrats on your awards!

  2. What a great day! Congrats on the awards! Thanks for passing on them on. Always makes me feel special!

    Take care my friend! I pray you have a blessed Sunday!

  3. It must not be too cold there anymore. It's still max. -12C here everyday. The snow gives the children hours of fun.

    PS. Mahna mahna :oP! Glad you enjoyed the video! We still laugh everytime we watch it.

    Have a blessed Sunday!

  4. I love days like this too. When I go to bed after a day like you mentioned, I feel so peaceful and I rest so easily.

  5. Your day does sound lovely... peaceful! Who doesn't love seeing their children play contentedly?

  6. What a sweet way to spend the day. Praying your Sunday is just as wonderful!

  7. Oh what fun this sounds like! House renovation, heart filled conversation, and children playing outside! Oh the snow looks very cold there. This weekend it has been lovely here, 55 degrees yesterday and 50 degrees today. We went for a walk to the park. It was so much fun and even nicer to have a break from winter! Stay warm and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

  8. looks like they're having a blast out there!

    and snow... ahh it's finally warm enough here for us to go out and do some of that!

  9. sounds like a lovely Saturday - and actually warm enough fo your boys to enjoy being outside. Wonderful.
