Spring is on it's way!

We spent the weekend doing yard work. Kerry borrowed the chainsaw from work and we cut down a nut tree, and pruned the curly willow out front. That sounds kind of kinky, it's not. 
 Saturday, fight night. Pizza at mom and dad's before the fight.
 Sunday, dinner at the Gasthaus in Peachland. Kerry's been putting in longer hours because of a new system at work so his boss paid for us to go out for dinner. It was a hard choice! We knew it would be a good meal at the Gasthaus, always is. Kerry had the Bavarian Beer Roast with bread dumplings.
 Both meals came with a side of purple cabbage. I love it!
 I had Rouladen with spaetzle. I could only eat half of it, so I ate the rest for breakfast the next day.
 We tried to get a few pictures of the two of us together. I hate docks. It helped that the water was clear and not deep at all. The picture is crooked, I had to put the camera on a rock and use the timer, which meant I had to run down the dock, which is scary too.
 My Project Life album is caught up, right up to this week. I'm pretty amazed that I have managed to stay  this caught up. And as the weather improves, I've noticed I take more pictures. There's the odd week last month that has maybe 2 photos in it. But that's okay, I decided right at the beginning that I wouldn't stress about it.
 I found a picture on the internet to use for my bit about the earthquake/tsunami in Japan. I used CNN for facts for that day. Since then things have changed.
 I have been saving wrappers from different food items, candy, hot chocolate, and have been adding them too. It was Lorana's birthday, so we went out for dinner at Olympia, it was awesome. We had such a great time and we took pictures. I'm loving that part of Project Life. It's forcing me to take my camera out more, and use it.
 St. Patrick's day, Spring, trip to the scrapbook store, blood test, tatertots to get over blood test trauma, self portrait, sick kid, muffin, Walmart. I have developed a new skill, I can hide my veins when the thread of a needle is presented. Which makes life even harder, and painful. No veins in the arms means the veins that can be seen on the body will be used, hence the swollen, bruised back of my right hand. Which stayed true to me and didn't give up any blood! So the left hand was used too, held between my legs, it gave up a bit more than the right hand, and didn't hurt at all. I'm a freak of nature.
 Chainsaw, dinner out, green grass, pizza.
 And I made a layout too. Paint, ink, polaroids, corrugated cardboard from an Amazon box, washi tape, stitching, I went all out. And I mixed up paper lines, different manufacturers on one page!
Thank you, Amy Tangerine for getting those creative juices flowing.
Other things I've been doing...taxes, business stuff for photography, studying, eating better!

Love the album!! So fun! I like the pic of you on the dock. I don't like docks either, or lakes. And when did you start eating better? That part about food didn't have anything healthy in it!

That's because healthy food is boring blog stuff. People want cupcakes, deep-fried, cheesy stuff! Oh, well, at least I do. We are eating more veggies, drinking more water, and eating less meat, except on Sunday, that was 100% meat.
