Day 213 – 215 — We’ve had a few very lovely days here in Bon Accord. And it looks like the long weekend is shaping up to be a gorgeous one.
I managed, finally, to get all the weeding done. Yay! Yay! Yay! I sat under my lovely pergola for the first time last night and enjoyed the fading rays of the sun after a late dinner. I made the most delicious spinach salad I’ve ever had. Don’t want to boast — well, that’s a lie! — but, damn, that salad was good.
On Wednesday I decided to pick up my grandkids and spend the day with them — to take a break from the monotony of chores and day-to-day. We went to the spray park in St. Albert where they had a grand time. Ethan was enthralled with the skateboard park next to us and I have fears that as soon as he’s big enough he’s going to want to try what he saw. Gives me fits. Afterwards we had popsicles and ice-cream as we sat in the sun waiting for them to dry off.
Then, home where I made them tacos for supper. We were having fish tacos. None of them have ever had fish, so Grandma decided to try it on them. I LOVE fish tacos — my new favorite food. Has been for about a year now. Anyway, they loved the fish, just not on tacos. They’ll get there, eventually. But I’m glad I was able to introduce them to something new.
On Thursday I went and got my haircut. Quite a bit shorter than I have had, and I love it. Something new for the new me. LOL. Followed my plan to find a little coffee shop and sit and write for a couple of hours. Tried out a place called JAX coffee on 50th street. Very nice. Excellent food and service. I would recommend the wonton soup if you decide to give it a try. Got some good writing done. Fleshed out a poem, which I think is going to get entered into a contest when it’s done.
I am feeling full of positive vibes. I know it has mostly to do with the summer and the removal of work stress, but I’m determined to hang on to them.
Oh, yeah — I’ve registered for courses at Concordia again. Marching ever forward.
