Yep, our daughter Lindsey and her husband Justin have taken off on a well deserved week away from the snow and cold. They've gone to sunny Cuba, for a week of the beach. The only thing ice cold that they'll experience is the temperature of their beer and drinks.
That's okay, it's a pretty safe bet that the snow and cold will still be here waiting for them when they return.
Yesterday, I drove them to Halifax airport for their flight to Toronto while Ruth stayed behind with Cameron and Sadie. They stayed overnight with a friend in Toronto, and this morning they fly to Varadero, Cuba.
Justin's step brother is getting married, and around 30 of their friends are attending this wedding in Cuba. Lindsey asked us about 8 months ago if we would come and look after the kids while they did this, and we agreed to do so...so here we are in snowy, cold Nova Scotia.
They've had pretty much a record winter here as far as snow accumulation. I guess for us, this is payback for the past 7 winters we've spent staying away from this type of weather.
It still looks like January out there. Did I mention yet about the 10 cms (4 inches) more that we're getting tonight? Yep.
Kids have been good though. At least as good as a four year old and a one and a half year old can be. Man, it sure takes a lot to get them ready to do anything. They're still in daycare for three days this week, so that gives us a break. We were supposed to have them there for 8:30am this morning, but we were a few minutes late. Nobody seemed to care though. We have to pick them up at 3:30pm, so we'll try and be a few minutes early!
Going to have a snack, and then go for a walk while the sun is shining. It's actually pretty nice out there just now, but that's supposed to change this afternoon.
No sign of spring here yet.
