CONGRATULATIONS TEAM MANITOBA!

How can it be Monday again so quickly?   Once again the weekend seemed to fly by, this time, leaving a good amount of heavy wet snow behind for us to enjoy - or not!  The snow blower was dragged out for the first time this winter, and I noticed boots on feet that have only worn sneakers all winter... how refreshing!

In typical Manitoba fashion, the snow stopped nothing or no one.  Life goes on here, snow or no snow.  Yesterday I trudged to church (twice) on the unploughed/shovelled walks.  It was great exercise and very good for the lungs as well.  Good thing too, as I had 2 services to sing for yesterday, instead of the customary 1 Sunday morning service.

Our choir did a Choral Evensong at 5 pm, and it was beautiful.  The whole service was sung, and the choir sang the Magnificat in B flat, and Nunc dimittis in B flat - which were both awesome.  What a wonderful experience to be able to sing with this wonderful group of singers.

It was a pretty exciting weekend for other Manitoban's elsewhere in the country as well.  Team Manitoba at the Special Winter Olympics in Alberta, really did us proud.   They won 36 Medals and my friend's daughter won the Gold in the 200m snowshoe race - CONGRATULATIONS  SARA!

Let's have a great week, everyone!
