As it was my birthday I got to choose the menu. Abby is the baker so I chose cheese cake. For the main menu fish taco's. Holly, Chris and Abby were cooking.

Anyone who knows me well is aware that I spend most of my summer on my knees praying to " the God of weeds" to be kind. May is a time for lush fresh growth and as we were home at the end of March I had a head start on the weeds.
First come the crocus.
Yes it's almost March of 2021 but I have decided to update the blog chronologically so that it actually follows what happened over the last year.
Although it was snowy and cold when we returned home from Mazatlan in March the month of April turned out to have the best weather while we were at home. Sunny and warm and the snow soon melted. As we were dealing with lock down at that time we celebrated Easter outside at our daughter Erika's with her husband Wade, grand daughters Holly and Abby as well as Holly's boyfriend Chris who was living with them. Holly returned home with Chris from Vancouver to Terrace in late January to live with Holly's parents, work and save money so they could go to Scotland in the summer. Chris is a trained chef who came out from Glasgow in Scotland and as his Canadian work visa was ending in Feb.2021 they were planning to head back to Scotland, work and then do some travelling. Holly had just graduated from UBC with a degree in kineseology so she was hoping to get a job in Terrace as well. Well....you know how all of that turned out. Covid hit, everyone was locked down, restaurants were closed and their lives ground to a halt. Abby was just finishing college and hoping to continue her summer work as a vet assistant and that didn't happen either. We had just finished our two week quarantine but we obeyed the rules and met outside for Easter dinner.
A perfect day and not even a picture of the food. I must have been hungry!
