What’s Outside? A pair of ducks in the “pond” out back, a gorgeous sunrise of vibrant blues and oranges, the water is drying up and the weather is supposed to be 18 degrees celsius today, but snow is on the horizon yet again!
What’s in my head? I haven’t done a Sepia Saturday post in forever and I’ve got something planned that ties in with a fantastic, new family photo that an Irish second-cousin has provided. A poem is simmering.
What am I grateful for? Everything! Being able to walk out my front door into a beautiful landscape (as opposed to a long, bleak apartment hallway).
What’s cooking? I made pancakes for my mom for breakfast; it’s her birthday today! Happy Birthday, Betty!
What’s my “get-up”? Still in my pale-blue, sheepy-housecoat and Scottie-dog pajamas! Oh, and I’ve got the obligatory Grinch-socks on too!
What’s on the monitor? Ancestry.ca – there’s a whole load of new data available for Canadian research. Yay! I met a genealogist in the library in the nearby town of Fergus yesterday and I’ll be going to my first off-line genealogy meeting, come May.
Where am I off to? Nowhere today, but back to Kitchener tomorrow for mom’s eye-exam and to vacuum the apartment we just left, but of which we still technically have possession until April’s end.
Although, I’m very keen to chop my hair – it’s driving me batty lately and I always like to change my look when I change my environment. Besides, I think better without hair in my eyes. So far, I’ve managed to ignore the Wiltshire scissors in the drawer, but it’s not easy!
What’s in my library? Would you believe I have not progressed with “The Colony of Unrequited Dreams”? I can barely remember where I left off! Unpacking all of my books has me anxious to read something else, but I’ll feel kind of guilty if I leave a trail of unread novels in my wake.
What am I wishing for? A warm day, so I can go for a long stroll with my camera in hand.
What’s that noise? That thud? That’s Harry, the cat jumping down from his new “aerie” atop the armoire in Mom’s room. It’s a new piece of furniture and Harry is loving his own “loft-space”.
What’s happening here? Still wondering what to do about a birthday dinner and a cake. I have the cake ingredients, but no icing sugar to make frosting – and no candles! (Just as well, 82 would never fit on the cake.)
Gotta love this! I’m almost done with the unpacking. Trouble is, when you unpack the boxes, the crap in them has to find a place, doesn’t it? That’s why one of the office tables is littered with junk and going nowhere at the moment.
What’s up this week? Looking forward to the first weekend we do NOT have to drive back to the town we just left. Kev will be putting his feet up on Saturday to enjoy his EPL football matches and we’ll go on our second expedition to find the perfect pint.
Last Friday night we were here: Fergusson Room
Today’s ear-worm: “Walk This Way” by Aerosmith. Yee Gawds!
‘Til next time!
