Easter 2021 and then the Big COVID scare!

The last weekend in March we celebrated my brother Joel and Ashley’s birthdays! They brought the puppy to show us. We bought them a wine maker set for their birthdays! We ordered Skyway Chinese food and we had mini Easter eggs cheesecake for dessert.  This year I went home back and forth to the house for Easter. We had egg decorating on Saturday afternoon. We had wrapped up Easter eggs for a game! We rolled dice and used the oven mitts on our hands! We unwrap the ball of goodies until someone else got double numbers on the dice.

On Easter Sunday, my staff Kelsey and I dyed my hair purple.

My Mom and I enjoyed Sunday afternoon colouring pictures of Easter eggs and bunnies. We watched Heartland. On Monday afternoon Mom and I made meat casserole with the leftover turkey and ham with some potatoes and carrots. I got a French pedicure. Even though I got to see my brother Joel, I had to isolate in my room for five days! It wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.

My school presentations job has started up again, due to COVID and the rules of the health system in Alberta, and Canada, we made a video of the presentation and taped myself talking to the kids! After the kids watch the video Cherilyn and I meet the class to do our activity and the class gets to ask me questions. What a blessing for us! It is so much fun and I appreciate the teachers still getting me to come share my message.

How did I keep busy in my room you may ask? In the morning I got fed in my bed with my head up, have tea at my desk in my bedroom. I can still get a shower in the morning! I am doing a lot of word searches! Our staff had dressed up in white gowns and blue shields and masked! I think it’s a learning experience for the whole world.  I got to FaceTime with old staff Nancy from New Brunswick that moved back home two years ago. 

The second weekend in April was the Rose Club radio on Saturday night but with the isolation of being in my room for a week I couldn’t go and listen to it. Instead, I just stayed inside my bedroom and did word searches!

On the Sunday afternoon we watched the puppy for Joel and Ashley! Coco is her name! Yes, even though the puppy is a supposed to be not allergic, I had a reaction to the puppy. That evening I was sneezing, and my eyes got red, and they were bothering me!  We thought it was just when a dog gives you kisses, and I get rashes on my body and I guess it’s more than that! We also had a zoom call with our Edmonton friend Janet who got married to David on July 19, 2019.  They had a slide show of Janet’s & David’s life we watched and we had a great visit with them!

We also sent out Easter cards for the other teams and my family for celebrating Easter wishes and good thoughts!

In the middle of March we got a new washer in the laundry room because the old washer was making a lot more noises and it was loud! I can’t really turn it on because I’m too short in my wheelchair and the buttons are too high up! I can still get my clothes in and the soap!

We went walking to the skate park today. It was busy!

Have you guys ever heard about Katie Joy from Without a Crystal ball on YouTube? She’s a girl who does research on the TLC shows and families! I like watching her show on YouTube while I am doing word searches!

We are watching Our Daughters with Danielle and her family! They have 6 kids and only daughters! The oldest is about 10 and is named Blakley and they had five children at the same time which is quintuplets. Her husband Adam has a blog and they live in Texas!  The young kids are Hazel, Parker, Lulu, Ava and Riley! The kids just graduated from kindergarten and going into grade one in the fall. Can you imagine if you only had girls and no boys?  Poor Dad!   I’m watching Sister Wives too!

Sister Wives are in around the city of Arizona and they hope to build four houses! They also have lots of kids and some kids are married and have their own kids and families! I can’t imagine what it’s really like being on television and the world knows your life!

I have been to Arizona with my parents and youngest brother Luke. We went there for spring break when I was in grade ten!

My favourite part of spring and summer months are going outside and going on long walks around the lake with my roommates and my staff!            

Outside on the deck

FaceTime with Auntie Gail from Lloydminster!

In March and February we watched the Twilight movies on Netflix. In April we watched the Hunger Games on Netflix as well. I think my taste in movies are changing into action movies and love stories! My favourite actor in the movies were probably Bella and Edward in Twilight and in the Hunger Games I liked Petra and Peter! What are you watching in 2021?

Theresa, my staff Kelsey and myself planted flowers and thyme, sunflowers, oregano, basil and parsley.   We got flowers that butterflies like!   My mom always plants flowers and has an amazing garden in the backyard! I love flowers and gardens too! My love of planting flowers comes from my Mom, my Auntie, my Grandma on Mom’s side! I can’t wait for them to grow!

When my world turned upside down and I can’t go to see my family?!  It’s hard because my love language is quality time with family and friends. Hello to FaceTime! 

Mom and I made Facetimed and made dough for buns! While I was at my house doing word searches books! I got to watch mom shape the buns! If I was able to go home, then I would be able to put the flour, eggs, yeast, salt and oil into the mixer. Also, I would like to put the dough into balls!

My mom was watching Coco again! Isn’t she cute?

Second pan done! You can see different in those two different pictures and two different pans! One is more golden brown than the other one! Mom said they were good! I’ll have to take her word for it.

Some flowers are growing already!

Being sick and being stuck in our rooms, there isn’t that much to do.

Kinda hard to do stuff like with Rose club because every one of my roommates and myself had to stay in our bedrooms. My staff Kelsey brought her iPad so I could get updated with Sister Wives! I even got to watch Counting On with the Duggar family. I was wanting and waiting to see Jinger has another baby girl! I need this app on my iPad!

What’s a week of not feeling good, resting in my bed it’s just the flu I don’t have COVID.  On Wednesday I had my 1st PJ day! It’s weird that I haven’t seen my roommates since Saturday!  I guess I will have to FaceTime Mom and Dad on Sunday because I can’t really go home for two weeks! 

Trying to get some rest in my bed!

This is a day where I’m in pain and laying in bed with my massage bed on.

I did a fun picture.

This is an example for you to see what I do when I’m not feeling well.  I was playing with the camera and effects to make myself a blue dog. I also did a butterfly picture.
