HELLO SPRINKLER STARTUP | The last piece of the Spring start-up puzzle is turning on the water. I’m so excited to spend time in my new-to-me backyard this summer and key is making sure everything is watered and cared for right from the get-go.
HELLO ANNIVERSARY | During my first trip to Canyon Ranch with my sister, Beth, I opened our door on Easter Sunday to be greeted by a Mountain Lion. What I didn’t know then was that I would experience many of the symbolic meanings of this majestic cat for a long time after our first meeting. That was nine years ago and it still has a profound impact on me.
HELLO HARDWOOD FLOOR INSTALL | Another household project box checked! My allergies are getting worse and I’m excited to be able to replace the wall-to-wall carpet (complete with the permanent stains of previous owners) with hardwood. It has long been a dream of mine to have a bedroom with hardwood floors and that dream is about to come true! And with it there are only a few more projects left, the house will be exactly the way I need it to be for me.
HELLO MEDCAN | I wonder how many surprises are in store for me this time around?
HELLO INTRODUCTIONS | It’s not that I don’t care who my kids are dating, it’s just that I pay far more attention to how they behave as a result of who they’re dating. If they go off-the-rails it’s bad; if they’re confident and happy it’s good. It took a long time for them to understand that my focus would always be on them, not their partner of the minute. Alas, they like it when I meet their friends so here we go again!
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite day of the week. I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
