It has been a very busy and a very cold week (not related). So cold, in fact that I learned about something new: Sun Dogs. They are lights that appear on either side of the sun when it is REALLY cold…-35 degrees cold.
We tried not to let it get us down though or keep us from savouring the last five days in this one beautiful life. So behold….

Chinese New Year
Last night in celebration of Chinese New Year which was on the 3rd, we had a dumpling making Party. I tapped into my Asian roots in honour of the year of the rabbit.
Some worked harder than others…..
but we all had a lot of fun.
Mom also came this week which made it extra sweet. My salvation in the last few days really. I was up to my eyeballs in work and between showing the house, nursing colds and trips into the city it has been nice to have an extra set of hands.
It is almost time for my “sickness” post. I am struggling again with what really contributes to a healthy immune system. Last time I resorted to a full blown out cleanse-no dairy no gluten no sugar, which seemed to work, but really? REALLY? I would like to have it gone without extreme measures. I won’t get into it because I would just be repeating myself but I put it out there once again.
Despite sickness however, LIFE is beautiful. It really is. My husband monitors my down-talking of Three Hills because goodness knows, I like to slam it…well Alberta in general, but let it be said that it really is mostly the weather…(and maybe the lack of yoga), because there is a richness here. There are friends with whom I can share birthdays, or wrap dumplings, or stay up late drinking wine and eating chocolate. There is a loving family who care enough to invest in my children and with whom we can grow.
And there is tea…..
