Friday Jan.21,2011

So!  Where did the month go? It just seems to disappear. Well today it has warmed up to about +3 so far and we are hoping it will melt some of this snow away. However we don't want it to go off too fast or we will be in trouble with all the water. Not sure my little sump pump will handle it all if we get a lot of water quick.
I guess we'll deal with what ever happens eh?
Wendy has her name on the HIP list again so she will be getting a call soon. She is in a fair amount of pain everyday and is looking forward to getting it operated on. However this has raised a bit of concerned for our kids as it seems they are worried about Mum and I both. I will probably be going through some sort of treatments about the same time she gets her hip operated on. Not sure how 2 sick o's will make it through that. ha ha
I'm sure God has it all planned out . We will just have to wait and trust him. I am hoping that my treatments won't be to bad and if they are God will make sure that Wendy is ok. It is so nice to know that the kids are thinking about us and concerned.
Okay enough on that subject.  Last night we had a young couple and their family come over for supper and we had a lovely time. They have 3 children. It is a couple from our church. We cooked a nice roast beef and it turned out really good as usual. I think I have enough for the next few day left over but it is really good so I don't mind having it a few more times.
 We are going to try to have more people from our church over for supper or coffee and desert. It is nice to get to know the people at church.
Wendy is working today until 7pm. and then tomorrow she works a silly split shift. 11am. to 4pm. and then 11pm. until 4 am. She is off Sunday so that is good.
Barry called last night and I am playing on Monday evening in Coaldale. Guess I should practice a bit. I have some music on my computer so I can just bring it up and practice  with that. I have it all set up here in the basement.It gives me something to do besides watch the silly old TV. There is not a lot to watch during the day anyway.
Well that it for today. I pray that you will all have a great day and God Bless you all.

Jan.4, 2011

Happy New Year  everyone. Well now I have to get use to typing 2011. Not sure what 2011 is going to bring but it  is all in God's hands so I really don't have to worry about it eh? Well here it is 2011 and we moved here in April 2008. It doesn't seem that long ago but here we are in 2011.

New Years Eve I played with Barry at Pemmican Lodge in Lethbridge. We were supposed to play at Black Rock Lodge at 2pm. in the afternoon but the canceled because of the flu. At Pemmican we had about 60 people there and it was a lot of fun.It was fun to see some of the seniors get up and dance to our music. Wendy came and took pictures and a video of us performing. She worked until 7 and then came and watched us. We played until 8:35pm. Then at 9pm. we packed every thing up and headed home. I think we got home about 10:30pm. Wendy was off for a few days but had to go back to work this morning at 7am.

This morning I went for coffee at 9am. and got home at 10:30am. It was a long coffee. Every one was telling what they think they are going to do this year. Not sure what I will be doing this year as I haven't given it much thought yet.

We got snow on Sunday morning so things are really white at the moment. Wendy is back to work and I have a dentist appointment at 1:30pm. this afternoon. Not looking forward to that as I hate the drilling and I have do have a new filling put in. Sigh. Oh well hopefully it won't take long at least that is what I keep telling myself .ha ha.

I am hoping that Wendy and I can do a bit of traveling around the area. We keep saying we should do that but it just doesn't seem to happen. We are not that far from the mountains. We haven't even checked out some of the little towns that are near us. Guess we are old stick in the mud's. ha ha. Maybe this is the year we can do that. It sounds like fun but we have to get off our butts and do it.

The year has gone by so fast and God has Blessed us in so many ways. Our little church has grown this year. Mandy and Jorge came home right after the earthquake in Chile and little Levi was born.  Kristy and Bob flew home from South Africa and are now back in Red Deer. Wendy got to go with Adriana, Kristy and Bob to Mexico on a mission trip. We flew to North Carolina and spent 3 weeks with Wendys brother and his family. Then we went to Texas with Tanya, Tom and little Sophia for a week. We went to a conference there and then took a few days and looked  around some of Texas. This Christmas we were bless with Tanya,Tom and the kids for 3 days and Kristy came for about 12 day as she wasn't working Bob also came on the 23 as he had to work. We had a great Christmas. Looks like we have had a great year eh? I have struggled a bit with  my health but can't really complain.  Again as I said before God has Bless us  for the year of 2010.

Well guess I should get ready to go to Lethbridge and face the dentist. Pray it won't take long.
