Isaac on Adventure in Cost Rica


He said his first day there was the best day of his life.  
I love facebook and the ability to get messages and pictures from our loved ones.

February Update

 It's that time of year to take some cuttings from your forsythia shrubs and bring them inside to get a head start on spring.  February usually seems long and drab but we've had really warm temps lately.  Next week is forecasted for more of the same--50's, 60's, even 70!

But as my friend Doug said last night, "it's all a tease".  He's right, we're bound to have cold and snow and ice again before spring is here for sure.  In the meantime, the bulbs and the weeds in the garden are starting to show their green sprouts.

V had a birthday this month.  She's 79 very young years old.  She and Mark are watching videos from when Betsy and Kyle were little.  Those always make us smile :)

And here's our Skye girl.  She's still really into shoes.  She looks like she's saying, "I'm not doing anything bad.  Really, I'm not!"  But believe me, she can't be trusted with a shoe. . .

Madisonville Visit


We got to see Kyle play basketball during our visit.  He made 4 baskets! 
Here he's opening Grandma Peggy's card and reading it to us.  Thank you for the $20!
We went to the Oasis for his birthday dinner.  I had the best steak salad!  And of course the company made it taste even better :)
We had lunch with Betsy at school and that was fun even though our selfies didn't turn out to be share-worthy.
 And Betsy showed us the book her class wrote at Christmas, all about applying for a job as an elf with Santa. 
Something always going on at the Joneses' house!  I can't wait to go back again :)

A little before & after

My mama is just the cutest ever!  She's 80 years young and this is proof it's never too late to go low carb.  On the left, taken two years ago when we visited The Farm.  Picture on the right taken yesterday.  Thank you to PJ for sending this one--I love the apron and she looks so happy.  Wish I could have been there to hang out with you all too.  Love love to my Michigan peeps :) 

PS:  Mama--will you make me an apron too??

A New Website!

I've been working on a new website called Keto With Kynda and it's live today! I wanted a space where I could share what's happened to us with this low carb/high fat keto way of eating over the last year.  I hope you'll check it out and let me know what you think. 
Canada Garden will still be here too but maybe a bit less keto-ing  and  more flowers  :)
