About Me

February 14, 2021

Right Here. Right Now.

What I'm wearing .... my black leggings with flowers on them, a long sleeved hoodie in a shade of pink that matches the flowers on my leggings, my long green hooded sweater (down to my knees ~ so cozy), thick wool socks and my comfy slippers. No make up. No jewellry. Hair in a long braid.

What I'm reading .... "Allegedly" by Tiffany Jackson. It's truly very good so far. I should be done by later tonight. Then it's back to the very large book pile to see what's next.

What's happening in my kitchen .... chicken is defrosting for our special Valentine's Dinner tonight, fresh baked cookies are on a pretty plate and scrumptious cupcakes our dd bought for all of us tonight are tucked away on the dining room table so we stop drooling over them!

What's outside my window .... sun and sparkly snow. We had hoped to go skating on the rink as the temperature is a bit warmer today BUT the wind has picked up quite a bit so the wind chill has made it way too cold to venture out at the moment. Exposed skin will freeze in a minute. Yikes!

What I'm thankful for .... our warm, cozy cottage that is keeping us safe and sound during this crazy cold. Spring is in 34 more days ~ grateful Winter, as mild as it's been until this past week, is almost done. My healthy family. Life.

What I'm smelling .... the cookies! I just had one. Mmmm!!

What I'm hearing .... "The West Wing" on tv, dh is listening to our new host on our radio station (he has ear buds in but I can hear a bit), dgs talking to dd upstairs about video games, and the wind howling around the cottage.

What I'm crafting .... today, I set up dollhouse furniture in our new clock. Dh showed the girls and called it the "apartment clock." Three floors of living ~ a rooftop deck, a kitchen and a formal living room with a fireplace. I promised to take pictures for the previous owners. Will take those soon. 

What's on my mind .... my mom's care home has had much better numbers this week. And all residents and all staff have received their second dose of the vaccine as of February 5th. We are more hopeful than last week. But we're also all being super cautious too. It's not over but it's definitely better and we're holding on to this good news. 

Words to live by .... "The person who stays with you no matter what, don't let them go. Because they are a rare find that's true."  ~  Unknown.

Happy Valentine's Day!

With the bitter cold weather you've been having, staying indoors is a good thing. Sounds like you are cozy and comfortable. We've had such a mild winter this year, too, but the past week has been unusually chilly, and now we've had 2 days of beautiful snow. It will start raining later tonight. Enjoy your dinner!

It is odd how the winter has been unually mild for so many of us and then this crazy "polar vortex" has come to visit. We're dealing with frozen water source at the park so we've been without running water since Thursday. It's been an adventure!

I hope your mom is safer now with the vaccine. Senior in homes have been devastated with the virus in some parts of Canada.

Glad to hear that things are better at your mom's care home. Hopefully, everyone having their COVID vaccines will keep COVID at bay.
