I became a very bad blogger!
Time just seems to escape from me.  I have many excuses for not writing more!
We got very busy since September. Lots of new students, which is great but I never seem to have time to do the things that I want to do.  Also I went on a TV binge!  Somehow watching TV and seeing problems solved in less than an hour became very addictive for me.  I wish real life were like that, all problems solved in less than an hour.  How easy life would be! Reality is much harder!

I don't remember much from last September.
David did a lot of cooking and came up with some great ideas.  He discovered advoados, so we had lots of dishes with them in!

October was all about Halloween.  We decorated and baked.  I think the kids had a good time but it was exhausting!

November was rather stressful.
Christopher had his entrance test for junior college.  He passed okay but waiting for the results was awful.  We had no plan "B" so if he didn't get in it would of been hard.  He starts in April. 2 years course in Library and Information.  After which he can either work or do two more years for the next level. 
One morning in mid November we found these beautiful spider webs in the yard.  They were really amazing!

December was tough as always.  Hubbys passing on the 18th hit me hard this year.  3 years since he passed and some days I just can't believe it!  Grief is still there and I feel that even happy events are tinged with sadness.  He is missing in our lives.  And there isn't much I can do about it!
Christmas was good. My friend and her daughter came and spent the evening with us.  I don't have any photos as they are still on the camera!

So a new year.  I can't believe that it is already half way through February.  Time is really flying!
Things are changing a lot around here and I hope to have lots of interesting things to share!

I will try to write more but no promises!
