Opening Night for Stars for Saskatchewan - Leisa Way & The Wayward Wind Band


I had the privilege of watching my very first concert hosted by the Yorkton Arts Council. (Thank you Brenda!!!) As a mama to six children, a night out to enjoy a passion of mine was truly a blessing!

 The Yorkton Arts Council's mission statement is to "... provide(s) opportunities to engage in the arts through inspiration, education and entertainment." And that they did. The show tonight thrilled, educated and entertained the crowd!

Stars for Saskatchewan has an amazing line up this 2017-2018 year & I am looking forward to attending them all! Go check out them out and buy your tickets! ;)


Leisa Way & The Wayward Wind Band wowed the crowd tonight at the Anne Portnuff Theatre with their 'Oh Canada, We Sing for Thee'! Canadian Tour 2017. They have 28 shows planned from coast to coast. I'm glad Yorkton made that list! These beautiful, talented musicians and singers made us all proud to be Canadian. Tasteful humor in between songs had the crowd laughing out loud at times, and nodding in agreement at others. The cover tunes were brilliantly brought to life as Leisa Way donned attire that coordinated with the artists, and the band had the audience singing and clapping right along!

Each member brought a degree of uniqueness to the stage; voice, drums, piano, guitar, violin/fiddle, harmonica, wooden flute...it was truly enjoyable by people of all ages. Leisa, if you ever read this, it was a pleasure to meet with you. You have a beautiful heart! Good luck to the entire band on your next couple months of travelling throughout our beautiful country!

Thank you to the Yorkton Art Council for all the work that goes into these events. It really does make me proud to be apart of this city, and to know that we (the city) are privileged to have such a spectacular team and board members who make this come together each year.




























Cheers,

End of Year Post 2018...why not?!

HELLO BEAUTIES!
It's been a hot minute!

Lots has happened this year. I'll tell ya about it someday. Not today.

Today, I'd like to share a fun pastime with ya! After listening to Pastor Michael's sermon at Prairie Harvest Christian Life Centre yesterday morning, I was inspired to dive in with my Word of the Year (WOTY). I've done this for a many years now, but have slacked this year due to some health issues.

Pastor Michael shared some 2018 top New Year Resolutions. He remarked that out of all the resolutions (with the top 3 being --> lose weight, stop smoking, & learn a new skill!), no one said they wanted to grow closer to God. That made me stop and rethink my own personal "GOALS" not resolutions for the upcoming year!

1. GET HEALTHY
2. DRINK MORE WATER
3. PAY OFF DEBT

I went home and thought hard on a new set of goals I wanted...

1. GROW CLOSER TO GOD

The Electric Bill (follow up)

Just a quick follow up to the electric bill that came up last month. As of October 20th (today) the full amount of the Septembers bill has been paid (over $420).
Now mind you Octobers bill has not been fully paid ($181) yet; but taking care of the large bill that was due at the end of September was the main priority so we did not go more then 30 days overdue as they generally don't like it if you do and if we got to that point where we were 60 days overdue I would have to contact them to schedule payments so they knew we were trying to recover from being behind and when to expect the payments so they wouldn't have to threaten us with cutting our power.


YNAB after 4 months

Four Month Update
We have been using YNAB for a little over 4 months now, I won't lie and say we are rolling in the dough and that using this software has made us all of a sudden have a ton of money in the bank. What I can say though is that we: Have a more solid plan to pay down our credit cards and have paid down more than $2,000 in credit card debt between the 3 cards (half that on one card alone).Paid a huge (un)expected electric bill ($400 extra). Were able to budget for a little under $450 in dental bills for the kids (in about 6 weeks time) and will continue adding to that budget category so we will have the money for their next appointments in 6 months.Started putting money in our Christmas gifts category which gave us a short time to budget for this expected expense that comes up every year.Have been able to tithe. Have a better understanding of where our money is going each month.All this without going into the overdraft since we started in July.
YNAB Reports Now that we …
