I am pretty sure that I am 97.8% Cadbury Creme Egg right now. The remaining 2.2% is tea (green tea is a delightful compliment to creme eggs).
My Easter long weekend was busy, but fun. Thankfully, the Easter bunny (in conjunction with picky little cousins) left me a hefty supply of chocolate, which I’ll need to get through this week. Work is incredibly busy right now, with seemingly meeting after meeting. Tomorrow I’m looking at a 15 hour day, which unfortunately doesn’t leave me alot of time to get much else done, let alone write something cohesive for the ole blog. In an effort to at least get something posted this week, I’m going to do a quicky summary of some thoughts and happenings of late.
- Jeremy over at Modest Money listed the Top Canadian Personal Finance Blogs. We Canadians love to talk about money apparently! I feel pretty special being included and thanks to those who voted for me! I think you still may be able to vote, if you care to do so. Otherwise, there’s lots of great blogs there to add to your blog roll or reading list.
- A little while ago I posted about logging the bush lot on the farm. The loggers came Thursday and finished up today. Two hundred trees are gone, but the bush doesn’t look as thin as I thought it would. Unfortunately, there was an incident over the weekend when some boys (I shouldn’t say boys, they’re old enough to know better) got into the big skidsteer overnight and literally buried it mud. It took a high-hoe to dig it out. It was big news around here (you know you’re from the country when), I lost count of how many people were asking me about it. I don’t really care that they took the skidsteer for a joyride, I just hated the sight of the 9 foot deep ruts they put in the bush. At least the guy running the high-hoe was good enough to smooth out the ruts after he dug the skidsteer out.
- It’s snowing. I am not impressed, but I’m glad I was too lazy this weekend to take my snow tires off.
- Had the big family Easter dinner on Saturday. Getting together with all my aunts, uncles and cousins is always a blast. I think my favourite part of the day (aside from eating my weight in fruit salsa) was playing hide and seek with my littlest cousin. Every time he found me, he let out a big ole scream and then laughed.
How was your long weekend? What’s your favourite Easter treat?
