Celebrate every meal!


The kids came over Saturday afternoon. The menu for the week was planned, as we've the girls for the week. Papa checked up on school work for next week. They are all caught up. It was a good review before the week begins. 

We ordered in dinner from a new Sri Lankan restaurant in town, Kothu Labs. It was lovely! Caitlin took orders, wrote it all all, then phoned it in, and then picked it up. During dinner, Saturday, I noticed that we had a Jean-Luc, Jennifer, Josephine, Joseph, when I looked at our order list from Saturday. Grampa thought we could call Isabelle 'Jezebelle' to make another J.

It was a delight. The kids have travelled to Japan, etc., and are proficient at chopsticks, as well as beginning to experiment with spicy foods. The meals came in a recyclable container, with the name of the dish written on the outside. 

Josephine had leftovers!


The new teenager arose at 11:30. We checked on her many times. She needed her sleep. They are getting along pretty well. Isabelle is our drama queen, we have so much fun with her.

Jos and I went down to the trailcams.
Isabelle came out with me to clear off Grampa's bridge. He walks around the property, but has had to avoid the bride with the snow.

By the afternoon, Grampa was ready for his Bears game.
We gave Josephine the puppet making kit.

I moved the trailcam!

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmSri Lankan food is yummy and interestingly different from Indian spicing. (My 'sis' "Emm" is SL and I learned some of her dishes.) Now, The Bears... ice hockey? Curling? How did they do?!! YAM xx

You have a lot of good times with your grands! I'm looking forward to the day when I can spend more time with mine.

The sri lankan food sounds delicious; the snow, however, makes me feel cold. I suppose the girls create a warm, joyful atmosphere.

The food sounds like it will be interesting. I've never had Sr Lankan food but so many Sri Lankans work in restaurants here that it is good someone opened one up.

What model trail camera do you have? We need a new one and I kind of like the quality of yours.
