How time will Fly

This is a picture I took this last summer of where I lived with my family in Holland over 16 years ago. Wow 16 years thats more than half of my life. Its amazing the things I have done in those years. I really enjoyed my time in Holland this past summer, but for now Canada is still my home. I hope to go and visit Holland some time again, but their are so many places I would love to go. Well time to go some where new, this summer Alaska, and from their I don't know just yet!!!

Ode to Liz

Just the Other day Liz asked me when I would be putting her picture on my blog, and I told her it would be soon. Well here it is. For those who don't know Liz, this is liz in Amble Side, in England. She noticed the sign Bizzy Lizzys and thought it would be good for me to take a picture. That was a fun day in Amble side, Christine, Liz, Lawrence, Lori, and I went out for lunch it was great. I enjoy Liz she is a great co-worker, neighbor and friend. Tonight she and lots others will come and watch Jack with me on Twenty Four.

Its true, folks I have a family and this is what they look like. I have a Mum and Dad, a Brother and Sister, a Brother in law and Sister in Law and they all have some wonderful kids whom I love very much. Edwin My brother and his wife Kelly have two kids Aliah and Adian. And My sister Jolanda and her husband John have two kids as well, Vayda and Tessa. We got to have a little family reunion just before I went to see Amie at Christmas. We had one evening together, which was great to see every one together and enjoying a meal. Auntie Cheryl and uncle Allan were with us too. I can't wait to see them all very soon, in fact in the beginning of April with Amie. It will be fun to have the family together again. See you all very very soon!!!

Twenty Four

So I'm like one of the biggest fans of Jack, yeah Jack he can do just about anything and get away with it, he can fight any one and he will always win. I have to admit that I have all the seasons on DVD. I bought the first two. Last year Andi, Sasha and Scott bought me season Three. Well just the other night Kevin and Steve bought me the fourth Season. So I'll put this out their right now Season five is still up for grabs if you want to buy it for me your all welcome. It won't be out till about December, just a thought. OK but tonight was exciting as always with Jack. This seems to be the case every week round 9. Its funny for some reason people like to call at 9 on Monday nights. Jack was great. So He was assumed dead for the last year and a half, but now people are finding out he is still alive, with that said he has met a nice lady and been spending time with her. Well She ends up at CTU and has to be interrogated and who else but Audrey has to do it. She was Jacks girlfriend in the last season. Its really funny to see things unfold. Check it out next week at 9 you'll love it.

Some Appys I really liked!

Just a Quick note, this is what we served at our christmas Banquet. The cones are made of won ton wrapers and are filled with a spicy tuna mixture topped with a fruit salsa. The other one is philo Pastry with pear and Jack cheese in side, it was really good!

Cooking Lessons... How do you boil water?

Well I have had a few guys ask me if I would take the time to teach them how to cook. As I was thinking about that I took some time to think about who was asking. Ryan who just asked Alexis to Marry him. Edwin who has also asked Heather to marry him, and then Cam who will... well I'll let him tell you about how he feels for Cassie! But from what I see I think he has reason to as well. So three guys with lots of reason to learn how to cook. So what do you teach three guys who are getting married soon. Well I think of the basics I guess. So we started last week. The very first lessons. How to Chop veggies. Mirepoix (2 Part Onion, 1 Part Carrot and 1 Part Celery) and that's the base for most soups and sauces. So why not start with a soup. A soup that I thought would be very important is Chicken noodle soup, for those days that she is not feeling well. Last week I asked them to bring pen and paper because things are going to pick up.
This week with pen in hand, we keep going with Mirepoix and move into sauces. Tomato sauce and a white sauce. The white sauce went really well, we added some cheese and put it on to some pasta. MMM it was great. So I think that they will be able by the end of it, cook a great meal for their wives, if any thing make them some soup if their not well.

Some Quotes:

Edwin Said "I have never cooked like this before, all I knew was 'high and off' but there is medium and low as well on a stove, that's amazing"

Ryan said " Alexis is going to love that I can cook!"

Oh P.S. Ladies the last picture of the guys cleaning was partly posed. That's right they may look like their cleaning, but in truth their just standing their, and where is Ryan "oh sorry guys I have to run now! By the end of the year they will know how to do dishes really good! That can be a whole class!

Confession Time

So I have to say that I also Like to look at other people's blogs and see what's happening in their lives. As I was reading Amanda Browns blog this morning, she was sharing about how she likes to read others blogs. Well on a day off for me I like to read others as well, and even get a little up set when others have not updated theirs, even though I'm the worst with updating mine. Just thinking, keep updating your blogs, it's fun or should I say "IT'S NEAT TO BLOG" right Amanda!

Not just a shoe!

I just wanted to share with you all some of the coolest shoes I have ever seen, I used to be a huge fan of Reef shoes and I still am, but now for me this is where its at.

where have I been...

I have been reminded by my sister that I needed to update my blog since its been nearly a month.

Well folks lots can happen in only a month. So What have I been up to well the day I got off from work I drove through the night to Summerland to be their for one day and spend time with the family.

Then I got on to a plane to Vancouver to spend an afternoon with my cousin (Chinese food) Then onto a plane to the U.K. to see Amie, this is where the lego comes into the picture. I got the lego from Amie the day I got to England and I played with it for the rest of the time, besides doing really cool things with Amie. I went to my first panto.. and up to Capernwray Hall.. and lots of other really cool things Which I would love to tell you all about.

I came home to Summerland on boxing day and spent the remainder of my holidays with family and friends in Summerland. New Years with Scott, Jojo, Michael, Jordan and some of my friends in Summerland. We drove back to the Island the next day after Church and a very quick stop at my wonderful sisters house to see Jolanda and John and the Kids whom are doing very great. It was good to see Mom and Dad, and Edwin and kelly and the kids. I love them all and look forward to seeing them all again soon I hope.

Well that's a month in my life, one with more excitement than a normal month.
