Since it's the first Wednesday of the month, I am once again linking up with Anne at in residence for her "Currently" post. This is the Saskatchewan edition of "currently" since we're visiting my parents.
I've been admiring all the gorgeous flowers in my parents' yard. No matter where we sit, we see some beautiful flowers.
Later today my cousins and aunt are coming from another province just to visit us. We were really close with these cousins when we lived in Alberta and so I've been anticipating hugging them!!! Plus, I'm just really looking forward to spending a few days visiting and laughing with them. After a year and a half of Covid causing distance between people, it's so exciting to see family again.
I've been enjoying all the excellent food my mom and dad make. I've been especially enjoying all the varieties of pickles my mom makes -- not only does she make dill pickles but also carrot pickles and bean pickles. She also experimented with some hot pickles and they're so spicy my dad has named them Fire Pickles From Hell! I haven't touched those but they are Sam and Dave's particular favourites. Sam even drank the juice. Blah :( My favourites are the carrot pickles and I can easily go through a jar in a day! Hahaha!!!
I'm saving up all the great memories we're making! Yesterday we did a mini road trip around Saskatchewan and saw some really unique and interesting sites. I'll tell you about them next week but we got to see the Twisted Trees of Alticane (you can read more about them here) and got to take a four car ferry across the Saskatchewan River.
So that's up with us "currently." We're on vacation, spending time with family, and loving it! What's up with you???
