THIS WEEK IN THE LIFE OF MOI...



Starting March 1st...I had the pleasure of spending some time with my aunt and a cousin...We don't see eachother often, as we don't go into Montreal very often. My aunt just turned 88 yrs old ..we could all be so lucky to be in her shape at that age. She has a busier social life then most ppl I know. She also sings in a chior and seems to always be on the go. It keeps her young at heart and always a pleasure to spend time with. My cousin is near my age and we all 3 have birthdays close to eachother, so this was a birthday lunch for all of us lol.


Lucie, Matante Marie-paule & moi 2


Then wednesday, the 5th came so this is my 45th bday photo. Chris and I were just on our way out. We went to a nice dinner then off to the Montreal Casino...unlike the last few yrs when I won money ...this year, unfortunately I didn't. I did win lots of extra credits in the machines enabling me to play much longer but alas thats all lol. The important thing is we had lots of fun....till next yr.


I have that ...Deer caught in the headlights look, on this pic.....

So we come to this weekend. Another major blizzard...worst so far. Lastnight march 8th. We have reached aprox 350 centimetres of snow fall so far...do the math lol, or better yet....


We opened the door this ...this sunday morn....

With as much snow fallen this yr, we now hope to break the 30 some year record....there hasnt been this much since 70's...so hopefully we can break that, ...hell we deserve it after all this shoveling!! I have to admit, I haven't done any myself....(um, to busy in the house working? yeah thats it>>>I am sticking to that excuse)...


Hard to believe spring is a few days away lol....we advanced our clocks this weekend...atleast it wont get so dark , so early.......I am so looking forward to our trip...and I am sure, the snow will still be here by the time we leave...maybe not as much...but still....

Moon, when all that snow melts, you may be flooded!! I am sure glad I don't have all that to contend with.

You and your relatives all look very nice in the photos, but I'm wondering why you are "cut off" in the top pic?

moon said...

Thanks Kenju, ...as for the photo, this blog, somehow always cuts off part of the pic, and small size is to small, so just have to click on the pic to see it bigger if u want.

Looks like the movie The Shining, I am hoping that spring will come early for you or you hit the record of snow fall which ever comes first. Pics looks good.

Hugs
Cindy

So, let me get this right... We have 3 things in common.

1 - we're both heading off to Europe/Paris next month.
2 - you share the same name with my daughter.
3- we are both March 5th girls.

Fancy that hey???

Happy Birthday Moon - sorry it is late. My aunt is still alive in Rhode Island. It's my birthday on Saturday and I wish I could see her. So if one doesn't like snow I suppose one would avoid living in Canada but what I saw of it I loved and the air was crystal clear.
BTW you always look beautiful on your photographs and when you say you look startled it's because of 'red eye'. Usually you can adjust the camera to avoid this but another way is to look at a bright light before the shot is taken. That's the sitter I mean - not the photographer:)
