I got to watch a great game of basketball yesterday, and it was back at my old school. What memories! Derek's team lost to their arch-rivals, the Lords (it is SO hard to cheer for the Rebels in my old gym...) but it was a neck-in-neck game that included two over-time periods for the price of admission (which was extremely affordable - nada). Some of the players from both teams play on the same hockey team, and it was fun to watch them ribbing each other. Pure competition, with no politics. Beautiful. Then I took the long way home and stopped at the farm where I grew up, because Mom and Dad were there, and I knew she would have some supper for me!! Plus, it was nice to visit.
Hockey is winding way down. The Bantams are awaiting news of further play-off game scheduling. They won the first round, and can hopefully have more success with the next two rounds than they did with provincials. They had a really good second game against Spiritwood at home, but they couldn't climb out of the three-goal hole. Derek played better than I've ever seen him play, I think - he assisted all three goals - but they just couldn't stop Spiritwood's scoring power, or get by their goalie often enough. I wouldn't be surprised to see Spiritwood take the title.
I can't believe I'm actually going to
Clem is taking me on a trip next week. Yep, we get to go all the way to Esterhazy to pick up some tractor tires! Yay me!! I've been thinking I should renew my passport, but I won't need it for this trip, so I can procrastinate a while longer on that one.
My new washer and dryer are to die for - anything that is not nailed down has been washed and dried. And I can't believe how much less water a front-load machine uses. Clem has been wanting one of these for a long time, since we have our own filtering system. He used to almost cry watching all that water go down the drain. He's much happier now. Plus, he's getting new tires! What more can a man want??
Brother Carl is still being creative. Check out his new blog!
Well, my mom just phoned and they're stopping in on their way to see the cutest little boy ever (he lives in Saskatoon with my brother and his wife). I have to do a bit of straightening, so to speak!
Thanks for stopping by!
