Weekend Review - SNOW!!!

Congratulations to our friend Debbie who lives in Anchorage Alaska. Anchorage has broken the 1954-1955 record of the most snow in winter. They have received so far 134.5 inches of snow & it's still coming down.  Congratulations Debbie, I'm really glad you like snow!!!  It's wonderful hearing her stories on Face Book about the snow count and the daylight amount.  Sunday, it was 14 hours, 6 minutes and 47 seconds. Yes folks, in Anchorage seconds count.  I'm glad I don't live there. 
Debbie and Hubby and I all went to High school together (in fact hubby had a crush on Debbie) so it's nice that we still keep in touch.  Way to go Debbie!!! Enjoy shoveling. Keep posting the weather and day light times coming. It really is a very different life up there.

Saturday I got my wedding rings back.  I was so glad when they called telling me they were ready.  Sized down to 3 3/4 and all fixed I'm very happy with the result.  If you are in need in ring work being done, then Bellman's is the place!  The people were wonderful and even told me to hold on to the recept because if I need them made bigger, they will do so for free!  

Easter was wonderful. The usual ham, sweet potatoes, and veggies were followed by eclaires.  Easter candy and cards were exchanged and of course the Sunday Morning Worship message and Bible study made the day special, and perfect.

The dogs got to have some sweet potatoes (before we added the brown sugar of course) and a small amount of ham. It was August's first time eating this and he declared Easter the best ever!!!  Then he went outside to play fetch.  Ever see a Chinese Crested Retriever?  It's so fun to see him try to bark with a ball in his mouth, or see him put the ball down and place his paw on it.  Becke held down the couch because you never know when it might try to move all by itself!!

How about you? How was your Easter?


  1. That is a lot of snow! Not sure I could handle the long daylight hours. I would never sleep!

    Sounds like you had a great Easter. Have a great week!

  2. Whoa! That is a LOT of snow! As much as I enjoy snow, that is way, way more than I'd ever want to see! ha!

    Sounds like your dogs enjoyed Easter at your house! ;-)

    Have a wonderful week!

  3. You must have some tiny fingers! I think my ring size is an 8!

    Your Easter sounds nice. I love the card exchanging tradition, too.

    I can just imagine August enjoying his Easter lunch, and his game of fetch :)

  4. Easter was lovely here too. We spent it at my sister's house and all but two adult kids were in for the festivities. Weather was sunny, dry and almost 70 - perfect.

    After we got home we played fetch with Remy. Like August, he also loves this game. I'd like to take credit for teaching him to get the ball, bring it back to me, and drop it at my feet, but I can't. He came up with that all on his own.

    When he gets bored with the ball, he starts zooming around the backyard at top speed.Seeing him run is watching joy in motion.

  5. It sounds like you had a great weekend. See I think I want Becke's job. Holding down the couch is very important on the weekend. lol

  6. Wow, that picture is amazing to look at, but I'm sure glad I don't live in Anchorage.

    So glad you had such a wonderful Easter. I would have been with Becke holding down the couch! :D

  7. You had me laughing with August and Becke! Skye will bark with a ball in her mouth too. Glad he liked his first Easter dinner. We have recently stopped giving Skye her favorite Sweet Potato treat because they are not made in the USA. She is mad and turns her nose up at other treats. Have to find a replacement for them.

    Wow, record snow for Alaska. That is a very large amount for sure!

    Love you ring. Can't believe your fingers are that small. Even when I was 105 pounds I was a
    5 3/4!


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
