Visit with the Fam’

We are visiting our daughter and family again, can’t ever seem to get enough, especially with my grandson and lil buddy Madden. We had some great bonding time today, we went for a walk and even though it was cold enough to see your breath the chance to hang with the ‘Mad” made it worthwhile. I tell you, he warms the cockles of my heart.

20130126-210800.jpgWe’ll be back home tomorrow and take up life where we left off. I’ll get back to the routines of reading, writing, and relaxin’, sorry no ‘rithmatic.

I shall try to accomplish some of those tasks that have fallen through the cracks, that of updating the photos in the gallery, adding more pages of Charles Reeves memoir, and just generally trying to do a little bit of everything. The fun and games never ends, so much to do and so little time.

The weather here has been so so, better than many years in the past but not as good as some, and certainly not as nice as other areas of BC or Alberta. It’s the sun I miss, the inspiration and invigoration it gives me. It chases away the winter blahs and perks me up. I am so looking forward to spring, and I know it’s not good to wish away you life but come on I need some sun. Soon I’m told, soon.
grandmother, grandson, love

The Holidays Are Over

With Christmas and New Years behind us things are beginning to get back to normal. Moze (Maureen) is still off work and will be for the foreseeable future. Her Achilles’ tendon is taking its sweet time healing and the physio and massage treatments are causing her more discomfort than she can stand. That and being cooped up are taking their toll.

I’ve been playing with this blog a bit, fine-tuning and tweaking, nothing substantial just cosmetics. I will play with the website too and upload more photos. So many things I want to do, so little time.

Photo 2011-12-12 5 38 53 PMI also spend some time on the “MurielsKids” site, a MyFamily.com site primarily dealing with the Gale side of the family.  The matriarch of that side is my Aunt Muriel, who is my Dad’s (Dallas Sklapsky) sister.  She married a Gale and it’s that branch of the family that is most connected on the site.

I enjoy keeping in touch with that brance and would like to maintain a connection with all the family.  Just need to find more, there is a lot.

To that end I’ve begun doing some more research and entering names into a genealogical software package.  Any info anyone has to share please speak up!!
