I have been quiet here lately, so I am trying this format to try to get back into the swing of things.
Outside my window:
It’s sunny and there is no sign of snow falling, but that could change. It almost always does these days. The snow is thigh deep on the dad – and he is 6’3″. I haven’t tried going out in it.
There are blue jays fighting at the bird feeders and a bunny is hoovering up the fallen seeds underneath. The cat remains glued in his front row seat to the goings on. Occasionally he moves to another window for a better view, which we call “changing the channel”.
I am thinking:
That I should probably get myself in gear and clean up and get dressed. Or maybe just pour another coffee and finish watching Coronation Street.
I am thankful:
For a lot these days; helpful family members, a handy husband (he’s been in a non-stop fix-it and repair cycle around here these days), well mannered kids that I get compliments on from strangers, and neighbours with big snowplows.
In the kitchen:
There are tins of muffins and chocolate chip cookies packed and ready to go with us to today’s hockey tournament games. The small squeaky kid helped me bake most of the morning yesterday so that we could have snacks for the driving this weekend. Add to that a few apples and we are ready to go.
I am going:
To enjoy watching two more hockey games today. The tall hormonal kid’s hockey team is the top team in their league, but will have to play hard to make up for the loss of the tournament game that they had yesterday. My grandmother was able to attend yesterday and should be there again today – which is a nice treat for all of us. The tournament is on her home turf, so we were able to have a visit.
I am reading:
The Imposter Bride by Nancy Richler. It was last month’s book club selection. I missed the meeting, but the book is good and I want to finish it anyway.
I am hoping:
That it doesn’t snow today. We have enough.
I am looking forward to:
Getting over the current MS exacerbation and getting back to work. It’s been dragging on for a while and I am tired of my own company. The rest and recovery period is necessary, I understand that, but it is more than a little boring.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
More of the same as the past few weeks. I’m sure it will snow some more. There will be visits with the physiotherapist, the occupational therapist and the doctor, and probably a hockey game or two.
