You'll never ask again...

You must be wondering what we've been up to lately since my blogging has been more than slow. Well, actually, not that much. Secondly, I didn't feel like writing. About what???

Here's a litte summary of the past few weeks' activities, but don't get all excited, now.

- Orange-X has been very busy at work this past month (many internal changes, etc.)
- Jaap and Patricia (our Dutch friends) dropped in for an overnight stay on their way to and from their skiing trip in Switzerland.
- We had 2 1/2 weeks of beautiful weather (now replaced by rainy weather)
- I removed most of the moss from our back yard and there's still quite a bit to do there
- Did a lot of shopping. New pants, new raincoat, etc.
- Went out for a couple of nice long walks since the weather has been so good to us
- We're thinking of changing our sofa, but the one we saw and really like would cost about 3 trips to Canada. *sigh* So, we'll wait.
- I went for a massage from Paolo yesterday... HEAVEN! I must do this more regularly
- I cleaned out my closet... Two big garbage bags! The charity organisations will be happy.
- I filled out my income tax declaration form today. YAY me!

That's about all the excitement we had as of late. So, next time I don't blog for a while, don't ask or wonder. It's just not been that much going on.

BUT.... We do have fun up-coming events. Easter Holidays are nearing quickly and we'll be driving up to Holland to meet friends & family (it's Pa's birthday on Good Friday). AND... I will meet not only one, but two Bloggers personally. One in Holland and one when we come back.

Stay tuned....

Well, you are welcome to drop by here when you come through Cologne...

Hey - that sounds like what I should have been doing but did not do enough of.. I think you left one thing out, you were working the entire time too!

The shopping - Oh I need to do more of that, but I'm not finding clothes I like..

And the lack of blogging, ah that's alright.. But we do expect a report on your blog meet ups. :-)

ALL those things are blogworthy, CS! It's just real life... we don't all go on jetsetting sunshiney vacations, or go backstage at fabulous rock concerts, or indulge in expensive skiing weekends, some of us just just do regular stuff, like drink coffee, or fill out tax forms, or go shopping, or shovel driveways.... real life is always blogworthy!

Vailian: Thanks. We might take you up on that on another trip. We go quite regularly :)

ET: Ooops! Yeah, I did work, too. And there will be a report on the blog meets.

Ex-S: LOL! I know that, but then I prefer to sum it up a bit.

CS - who's been a busy bee then!? You might think it does not make for good blogging, but it gives the reader an insight, makes it bit more personal. How many Paolo massages do you have to skip to buy the sofa? ;-)

Ginnie said...

I am SOOOOOOO lucky to be one of those 2 bloggers, dear CS! I can hardly wait!!!!!

CanadianSwiss said...

Swenglish: I guess it must be the winter blues resp. the "Frühlingsmüdigkeit". Massages???... Oh, I would guess about 100-120 one hour sessions (and remember, this is Switzerland $$). My shoulders and back would never forgive me! LOL!

Ginnie: I'm so excited! I'll let you know which day as soon as OX has an answer from Selina, but I'm guessing the Thursday :))
