    Pretty Toes*

    It’s almost 10pm. I have basically been on the go non-stop since I rolled out of bed this morning, and I missed my usual afternoon writing time because I was at… (*cue drumroll*) …a spa. M gave me a gift certificate to have a lovely lovely pedicure done at this beautiful spa here in town and I finally made time to use it today. I was pampered and my toes are pretty and I like it. The rest of the day was a blur of cutting the lawn, dishes, 800 loads of laundry (not an exaggeration at all), picking paint colours, running errands, changing sheets and folding laundry. Tonight I’ve…

    A December Update*

    Has it really been a month since I lugged my desk up the basement stairs by myself and created my little kitchen nook so that I can write more often? (I still LOVE my kitchen nook, in case you were wondering. It’s my fav.) We’ve had a wonderful, busy month. Just after I last wrote I scrubbed my house from top to bottom to prepare for a visit with the Hubster’s mom! She flew in for a few days at the end of November and it was so lovely to have her here. We packed in as much as we possibly could during her time here, and we had so…

    Marvelous March*

    I have always loved the month of March. Even though the temperatures are often still chilly, it brings the first signs of spring and signals the end of winter. I’ve also always loved the old folklore for March– if it comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb, and vice versa. I lovedwaiting to see how the month will begin, and I often find that that old saying proves true. March definitely blew in like a lion for me, and not just with regards to the weather. The past few days have been so busy I could barely stay on top of everything. Work has finally picked…

    Bedtime Blogging*

    Oh goodness. When on earth did life get so impossibly busy?? When I was in university, I had so much free time I didn’t know what to do with myself. Now that I’m an old lady grown up, time flies by faster than I can handle and my days always seem so full. It’s 10:06pm, and I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve sat down today. Well… I wasn’t evaluated today. I was so sure that it was going to happen, and then it didn’t. It was a great day all the same–I had three grade 12 classes and they were all completely amazing. Great kids, great courses…

    Just A Blurb*

    (image found at: http://media.dorks.com/content/pic/d5282007/too_ashamed.jpg) So, remember that time when I used to write blog posts on a regular basis? Haaa… I almost can’t because it’s been like A WEEK. I’m terrible, I know. Life has been… exciting! Last week was full of work and volunteering, but I ended up with a four day weekend and it was SO nice. The Hubster and I decided to make good use of it and took a little road trip to visit my cousin and her husband. To put it simply, it was fabulous. We laughed, ate way too much, talked, shopped and let the boys duke it out on some NHL PlayStation game.…
