I'm Alive!

I'm glad to report back that I am indeed alive and well! :)

I didn't have internet access this weekend which is the only reason for my silence. I feel refreshed and rejuvenated after my day at the spa. We had a ball and were treated like queens. I took a couple of snaps with my cellphone camera - will try to post them later this week.

Spring is in the air which makes me feel even better! We sat outside until late on Saturday evening - without jackets of jerseys! They kids played and played and we just couldn't get them to come inside when it was bedtime. I'm so glad that Spring is early for a change! I know we'll probably get another cold spell or two but the trees are starting to bloom and it feels like Spring in my heart so I am HAPPY!!!! I took photos of the blossoms on our fruit trees but haven't downloaded them from my camera - will post them later too.

This was the first weekend in weeks that I didn't do any scrapbooking - not paper or digi. I just didn't feel like doing anything but laze around and enjoy the hotter weather. I have to admit that today is the also the first Monday in months that I don't feel exhausted! Maybe I should consider relaxing more over weekends! ;o)

I've been blessed with this lovely award by Trudi! Thanks Trudi! You must go visit her blog - she's got the most amazing decorating ideas on there!
The rules are simple:
1 Make a blog post where you pass the award on to seven blogs you like and
2 Post a comment at their blog to tell them about the award!
It's so difficult to choose only 7 because there are so many blogs that I love, but this time, I'm giving the award to some of my new scrappy, bloggy SA friends:
I pray that every reader of my blog will be blessed with a happy happy week full of pleasant surprises, lots of hugs and kisses and smiles!!!!
Will be back again soon!

Hi Michelle. Thanks so much for this award ... so glad that you like Doing Life ... feel very honoured ... jumping a leap over the moon righ tnow.

I agree that its great to have an early spring and its quite satisfying seeing all the trees budding at the moment ... feels like one is coming alive again.

Mmm, quite jealous about that spa experience. It sounds that you have really managed to switched off this past weekend at that it did do you the world of good.
