It's Sunday morning - a very peaceful time - the sun is shining though it is still below 0c but I'm not about to complain. Lots of bird activity outside my window, my coffee is at hand, the washer and dryer are humming away and I had a great day yesterday.
I got a few of those little jobs done - put a second coat of paint on the coat closet and basement door, painted the trim around the patio doors so I could put the curtains back up, put a new knob on the coat closet door, painted more trim and started to paint the wall heading down to the basement.
While I was engrossed in painting yesterday I had a text inviting me to a friend's son's birthday dinner. Having known the family for years I was happy to meet up with them at the Sweet Onion Grill for fun times and good food. The newest addition to the family - Sophie, age 3 months, got passed around and around with not a peep - she is a placid and content little one and yes, grandma let me hold her briefly!
Then I went back to Troy's house where we chatted for hours and enjoyed a really delicious bottle of wine. I'll have to get the name of it - it was a "staff pick" at the LCBO.
One of my readers, Kim, gave me a great idea for a challenge in April:
"How about an April 3 School Challenge? Bring home, gift, or recycle 3 school items each day. I am giddy with excitement about your retirement because I'm living vicariously. I'm not sure what I'll do with all my school supplies, books, decorations in 5 years."
I had written about the March Take 3 challenge which I summed up yesterday. So I've decided I'll accept Kim's challenge for April :) Thanks Kim for the great idea!! Tomorrow I'll post pictures of some things I've already brought home and then beginning Tues. April 1st I'll bring home 3 items a day from school. This is a completely doable challenge and should make clearing out my office and desk drawers a non-issue come the end of June.
I LOVE getting ideas from readers. Keep them coming!!
