What I'm wearing .... warm cord camel colored pants, with a light pink turtle neck under my Ryerson University darker green hoodie and wool pink socks.
What I'm reading .... blogs and the notes I need for our board meeting this afternoon. I love to read blogs in between work stuff to keep me grounded.
What's happening in my kitchen .... dh is going to make us a lovely roast dinner with root veggies .... mmmm, my favorite! We're planning a dinner for two, with candles and some wine. It's been a busy, crazy couple of weeks, so we're looking forward to a quiet time together.
What's outside my window .... a beautiful rink that we've spent the weekend on the ice. Our neighbors came over as well and we've had such a great time with their little ones. This is one thing that will help us keep focused on staying healthy during Covid.
What I'm thankful for .... my mom's good health so far, the health of our kids and family, our cozy cottage and sunny days that are bringing warmth back to our landscape.
What I'm smelling .... nothing just yet as dinner is not in the oven. But soon, it will smell heavenly in here!
What I'm hearing .... the dryer doing it's job!
What I'm crafting .... After figuring out how to make wood floors (thank you Claudia!), this week I figured out how to do baseboards and can't wait to show how nice they look, once I figure out how to glue them in place.
What's on my mind .... my mom's health .... it terrifies me that Covid is now in her building and in her unit.
Words to live by ....

Thank you for your kind words yesterday. We're trying to enjoy our weekend but of course, our hearts are heavy with the idea that in any moment, we could get a call that the virus has spread through my mom's care village. I'm truly hoping they are going to be just as successful as they've been in the past, and this one resident ends up being the only case. Your blessings have greatly helped me feel supported. I will update as we know the status.
I'll do a separate post on our movie premiere evening last night for our grandson. It was a great distraction and he was so excited! Picture to follow later.
Today is cloudy and snow is on it's way at some point. It's still warm so we're going to head outside later to try and put our greenhouse back together (there's another post) and then try for the third time (another post!!) to get our rink ready for the water man to bring us a truckload of water this week. Looking forward to skating soon on our little rink.
Once we're done these tasks, I'm going to either have a lovely hot shower OR a warm bubble bath. And then snuggle down the rest of the day to finish up some paperwork (preschool registrations), watch an episode of "Bridgerton" (new series ~ quite good!), write a letter or two (love my pen pals!), catch up on some blog reading (I'm slightly behind!) and help dh make a scrumptious Sunday dinner (can't wait to see what he's going to create tonight!). Not an exciting day but after a very busy week, a slower paced day that I'm looking forward to. What are you up to on this fine Sunday?
