the snow on Good Friday ~ going so fast
Easter dinner on Saturday with our son and his fiancé
So many deer. We counted 34 on Saturday evening.
Thursday evening. The river had risen on Tuesday and covered the road Wednesday night.
Do you see the bit of ice in the bush on the left? That's how high the water was. It has gone down a lot since then.
Another Easter has come and gone. We had a busy but, a very good weekend. The weather was pretty good with some sun and cloud and temperatures around 10-12C. We had our Good Friday service on Friday morning. Murray and I did a bit of yard clean up that afternoon. We picked up fallen branches from around the yard and had our first fire in the fire pit to burn them. We had to wade through a foot of snow to get to the fire pit but there is also a lot of bare ground now. Saturday I cleaned the house and cooked for our Easter dinner. Mark and Jenn came over for dinner. Sunday morning was busy with our two church services. We left the house at 7:30 and got home at about 1:00. In the evening we sat down to watch The Mentalist and I was getting a bit sleepy. We decided to watch the DVD "Saving Mr. Banks" and I fell asleep within 5 minutes. After an hour of fighting sleep and not really seeing the movie, I went to bed. lol Murray enjoyed it and I will watch it soon....in it's entirety!
Today it's cloudy and cold. Only +8C. With a wind blowing it's not pleasant to even go out and do yard work. The sun is supposed to come out this afternoon and warm it up. I kind of hope it does as I could use some yard exercise. :-} We only have a few patches of snow left and a couple of snowbanks. It's amazing how fast the snow melts when we think it might never do so. It's been 21 days since we got the huge blizzard on April 1st and the snow is about gone.
I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend.
