I hope you all have re­cov­ered from all the choco­late good­ies that were given over the Easter week­end. That rabbit must have been busy!

The Bor­wick fam­i­lies were at Donna’s for Easter din­ner which in­cluded Chris, Kare and Jack from Cal­gary; Deb­bie and Cal from Hand Hills; Mike and Judy from Orkney; and Ria and Sarah from Red Deer. Lots of chat­ting and laughs I’m sure. Donna had a nice sur­prise about two weeks ago when the door opened and in came son Jor­dan from Kelowna. She had no idea he was even in the area. Those are spe­cial sur­prises.

The Bell’s had Nathan and Kirsti home for the week­end and all were at Gleichen on the Sun­day at Kathy’s brother’s home Don Wahl’s. A short but fun time hav­ing the kids home.

The Mueller house­hold was over­flow­ing on the week­end with Ta­tum home from Saska­toon, Zack from Ed­mon­ton, Tay­lor and Wes from Mor­rin and also Shari’s fam­ily on the Sun­day for Easter Din­ner. That would be a noisy and fun time!

Over the week­end I had grand­daugh­ter Roberta Ke­ichirger from Leth­bridge here from Satur­day to Mon­day morn­ing. Satur­day night we were at Rick and Sandy’s in Beiseker and saw Matt and Jay­den from Martinsville, SK and Meaghan, Bray­den, Jack and Cooper as well. Chad, Catherin and Cassie from Wey­burn, SK were here from Mon­day to Tues­day so more cards and fun! I love hav­ing grand­kids and great-grand­kids here. I’m ex­pect­ing more fam­ily dur­ing the com­ing week so more vis­it­ing, card games and fun, they are com­ing from Ed­mon­ton.

I think that Spring is re­ally here as on Mon­day morn­ing there were four robins in the tree by the back door. My mother al­ways said Spring didn’t ar­rive un­til she heard mead­owlarks, saw robins and blue­birds. Mead­owlarks and blue­birds I haven’t seen for years.

A re­minder to all you gar­den­ers about the work­shop at the Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­tre April 16 pre­sent­ing Jim Hole, a noted hor­ti­cul­tur­ist from Ed­mon­ton. There is more de­tailed in­for­ma­tion from Pat 403321-0210 or from Toni 403-321-0061.

Have a good week and pass on your smiles...it makes some­one’s day.
