You don’t wanna know how many I have eaten already! I did a search and found THIS. This Yaya is so cute. And her recipe is almost the same as the one I used. Let me know if you want it and I’ll email it to you.

Last weekend Jason and Eugene came to visit us. We had such a fun time. We watched “The Life of Pi” and had sushi and pho and even went to church together. I am already looking forward to their next visit. Thanks for coming, guys!

This morning’s post was way too depressing. I have to post this to balance things out.  It’s been such a long winter!

Here we are, March 1, and all this snow on the ground. Poor Eddie has to dig out his car. Enough already . . .

O man – got this video emailed to me by Norval United Church. I was inspired to work out . . . but I didn’t. Why is exercising so hard? I’ve been swimming for about 15 years. I try to go every morning but when I wake up and there’s snow outside and the temps are really low – I just don’t feel like going! My goal is 5 times a week. Last week I did 3. I skipped yesterday . . . but I did go today! My friend, Lisa, asked me to go to YOGA with her on Monday nights. I’d rather go for coffee. (Sigh) I should probably watch this video once a day. Or at least once a week! Do you exercise?

At the mall

On Feb 22, 23, 24 we rented space at Carlingwood Mall and had a kiosk for Qualicare. We gave out tons of post-it notes and pens and met some great people. Mall walkers are so much fun! Now we wait to see if we were successful in getting new clients and good contacts. It was a lot of work and hopefully it will pay off.

On Feb 4 Eddie and I drove to Toronto where I got on a plane to fly to Boston. After many delays I finally landed at Logan Airport. Nancy had surgery for uterine cancer on Jan. 31 and I wanted to spend time with her as she recovered. The plan was for me to stay until Saturday, Feb. 9, and then fly back to TO to spend Chinese NY’s eve with the family. Things don’t always go according to plan. The Blizzard of 2013 hit New England and instead of Chinese food I had an extra day of sister time. I managed to catch one of the first planes out of Logan on Sunday  morning (only a short delay).  My time with Nance & George was relaxed and fun – especially after we got the news that Nancy would need no further treatment! We were all so thankful and relieved.

While Nance and I laughed and watched movies and TV shows and had lots of face time with friends and family, George shoveled and shoveled tons of snow. Here are some pics of our time together. The picture of George holding two phones is funny – his sister in Greece is talking to his brother in Florida both through George’s phones in Massachusetts!

Nance & George – thanks for including me as  you dealt with this medical crisis. This is what family is for. I love you both!

I get an email every day from Norval United Church in TO which includes a verse from the bible, a prayer, a small devotional and a utube related to the theme of the day.

Today’s topic was “birds”. The verse was:

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?(Matthew 6:26 New International Version)

The video was haunting. See what you think – just click on this link:
