Our Everyday Life: April Snow

Week 16 spring teased as a little. It wasn’t going to stay for long, in fact won’t be here until May. Yet, as I write this my husband and the children are dozing meanwhile the birds are singing outside, in the April slight cold morning.

Can’t imagine that last Friday it was snowing like early winter. In Saskatchewan, from the very first year of our arrival {2011}, I never allow myself to hope for proper spring until May.

I didn't take daily notes of our life happenings, there was no need, I’ve decided to write whatever I remember as the days go by.

Monday we all went to the swimming pool as a family. It was TOI’s first swim, he looked adorable in the water with his surprised expression and sometimes shy smiles. Meanwhile AOI looked like a pro

Tuesday we didn't go to French playgroup, instead I stayed home to organise few things. In the evening I had a friend over for dinner and we talked about organising an event dedicated to women. Wednesday I had a training session at the gym, I wasn’t very surprised to find out that I'm completely out of shape, I may look like I'm losing the baby belly but my stamina and is at its lowest. I’m thinking about hiring a trainer to take my endurance to a sufficient level.

Thursday we went to the local playgroup and I thought everything went fast because it wasn't even eleven thirty and people were getting ready to go home. Friday I went to the gym as soon as TOI fell asleep for his midmorning nap, I didn't work out very much. Saturday morning I went to a class called physique, it’s what I need if I’m not going to pay for a personal trainer. In the evening husband suggested we order a pizza and go sit by river for our dinner. So we did. Sunday we went to church, in the afternoon we spent the time enjoying family time and at one point I told AOI follow me outside to play in the drizzling rain and muddy puddles.
