my kids are sitting at the kitchen table crafting...creating...being. okay delainey is making some odd noises to go along with it all...what can i say, the girl just likes to hear her own voice.


i am enjoying morning tea, updating and browsing on the pc while enjoying the sounds from the next room


i have a list of errands to do that requires a trip to red deer...but it's all in the name of creativity...so it's all good!!!


i spent the afternoon yesterday at a new friends house...and i am still thinking about how awesome the conversation was and how much we have in common...a good day


i said good bye to one dayhome kid on friday...and am looking forward to some sanity again


my kitchen is messy and i am ignoring it cuz there are other things i would rather be doing


i am inspired by this person and this person creatively, musically, and by their words....A LOT!!!


we will be taking a moment of silence today to comemorate the sacrifices of our soldiers for past and current wars...we do this on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month...we remember


In Flanders Fields
by John McCrae


In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
