PL2023 - Weeks 7 & 8 | Sahlin Studio

We have had So. Much. Snow. 

I'm aware that I sound like a broken record. But at this time of year, when we've celebrated the first day of spring... I just want spring. 

We're a long way off. 

Here are combined weeks 7 & 8 of my project life album.

  • Snow, snow and more snow...
  • The cutest little doggo ever, who has a love/hate relationship with the snow. And being cold.

PL2023 - Week 5 | Sahlin Studio

Here's week 5 of my project life ablum. 

To document this week I used some of the pieces from the Birthday Cake collection. It's the March featured product from Sahlin Studio. Through the whole month, you can pick up the whole collection or individual elements for 50% off. Such a great deal! And pretty versatile. 

  • Our new furnace was installed, finally. Once up and running, the stress level decreased significantly. 
  • Celebrating Grandma's birthday. We went out for dinner and came back to the house for cake.
  • So impressed that Barry fixed our dishwasher. Worth celebrating for sure, we saved at least a thousand dollars. 
  • Me and my bestie and her bestie... [She had to get in on the action] It was hilarious.

PL2023 - Week 3 | Sahlin Studio

Combined weeks 3 & 4 of my project life album. 

I go through weeks were I take a ton of photos and other times it seems like weeks go by without any pictures. This was one of those times. So I simply double up the weeks. 

  • We helped move Uncle G one weekend.
  • Barry and I made the trip to Abraham Lake, to check out the methane gas bubbles, definitely worth the trip. 
  • The day after our road trip, we got walloped by a snowstorm. So. Much. Snow.

March 2023 Template Freebie | Sahlin Studio

Happy March! 

We finished off February with a whopping 32.1 cm of snow. [12.64 inches] Most of that falling in the past week. February is a short month, but it sometimes feels brutal and long. 

I get terribly jealous when people start to post photos of blooming cherry blossoms... We're literally months away from that. 

Today is gorgeous, it's +5 degrees Celsius, the sun is shining, the roads are an utter disaster. The forecast is for it too cool off once again, with the chance of more snow...

On the bright side, here's the template for March, from Sahlin Studio. Download it for free through the whole month.

We took the kids to yet another concert. [We're making up for time lost during Covid] Part of their Chrismtas present was tickets to see Chilliwack and Honeymoon Suite. We had front row seats people. Front row. It was pretty epic. So thankful that the kids have the most awesome taste in music.

PL2023 - Week 2 | Sahlin Studio

Last week we had a snowfall warning, and once again, the weather people were accurate. 

I feel thankful I live somewhere, that despite all the snow we get, the chinooks blow in  and melt most of the snow away. Typing this, I did some digging and found that we had 26.1 cm of snow this month [10 1/2 inches]. The majority of the snowfall accumulated over just a couple of days. 

The chinooks are a very, very messy process, when temperatures go from well below zero to suddenly well above zero. Really quick, like overnight.  Again, thankful I live where the snow disappears, but heaven help you if you don't check the windshield washer fluid before you leave the house. I'm sure many of us are familiar with pulling onto a side street and finding snow to rub on your windshield as your 'washer fluid' simply to see out the windshield. I digress, that's a story for another day...

What I'm trying to say is this: we lost most of the snow. Now the snow is back and deeper than ever. We had a ridiculous cold front blow through, where night time lows were once again in the -40 degree celsius with wind chill and now we're patiently waiting for yet another chinook to blow in, and temps will rise once more. 

And today, we woke up to snow. Falling. Again. Is it pretty? Yes. But have I tired of it? Again, yes. 

Today will definitely change our February accumulation of snow. But by how much... 

Here's week 2 of this years project life album: 

  • Hanging out in Bass Pro. Kinda like a date night, but not. 
  • Walking the doggo.
  • Hockey fans. 
  • Seeing Fiddlers on the Roof, was sobering considering the war in the Ukraine right now. History repeating itself, again. 
  • Crazy kids, who I adore.

PL2023 - Week 1 | Sahlin Studio

I nearly went all digital starting with this new year. But I still have room left in my photo album and at the last minute decided to keep up with this format. 

I love the physical photos. I'm forced to print them and to have them. And I do. If I went completely digital, I wouldn't have these pictures at my finger prints. 

Still annoyed that Costco went out of the photo business. Initially I had sent a few things their way, but it took weeks to get them, and the quality was crap. Recently got an email that they're moving over to Shutterfly, so I guess they're out for good. 

London Drugs, though a bit on the costly side, do have great quality. 

Here is week one of this years album: 

  • Sweetest little dog.
  • Ringing in 2023 as a threesome.
  • Barry just about went crazy on this puzzle. It was tough. 
  • Missing my Mumma still. Hoping 2023 will be a better year. 
  • RV check with Baba after our Costco run.
