HELLO SPRING | Once it had a chance to show itself it did – buds and storms and birds all over the place! I’m enjoying our first spring in our new house. I wonder what treasures will be revealed?
HELLO DOWNTON ABBEY | Now that we’re close to the end with the next, season 6, being proclaimed the last, I’ve started to watch the series! I bought DVDs previously but no longer have a means to watch them! I’m just at the start of season 1 and am glad I waited. I have no doubt I will miss it greatly when it’s over. (NOTE: my addiction is far more severe than I expected. I should have waited longer!)
HELLO JEWELLERY PARTY | My friend Lise is a dynamo and the Canadian queen of Park Lane jewellery. I’m hosting a party for her at my home on Tuesday morning. If you’re in the area, stop by! If not, check out the “Dancing with the Stars” bling. So fun!
HELLO BRUISES | I forgot this part of lacrosse. Ouch.
HELLO SIGHT AND SOUND | With much thanks to Cloud Nine, our home is all wired up! We have Apple TV, we have SONOS, we have speakers and wires and sub woofers and iPhone apps. I know the bass works – Cole had a surprise birthday party for a friend on Saturday night! Feeling completely limitless!
HELLO EUPHORIA | Natalie is fabulous and I love how she laughs because I want to embrace the gray but there just isn’t enough. She gladly turns me back to my red-headed self.
HELLO DAUGHTER | At some point this week, Claire will return for a couple of days. Classes are over and she is studying for her exam. Yes, singular. I have no idea when she’s planning to arrive – or head back. The part of teenagers that drives me the most bonkers is their expectation that you’ll be around whenever they decide to bless you with their presence! Nonetheless, I’m still glad to have them home.
HELLO WOODPECKER | Outside my office window I hear the regular staccato of a beautiful red-headed woodpecker.
HELLO SPRING CLEANING | Windows are washed and open. Furnace has been shut off. Winter gear is put away. Barbecue is in working order. The big list of chores has been written and one-by-one they are being done.
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite day of the week. I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
What are you saying hello to on this brand new Monday?
