It’s a pleasant Monday morning here in the Ottawa Valley although there is snow in the forecast tonight and tomorrow. However, that’s much better than more freezing rain; twice last week I was obliged to chip and shovel ice from my driveway. Snow is much more manageable than ice.
The trouble is that tomorrow is Tuesday, which is Nikki Dee’s scheduled violin lesson. Her first was three weeks ago, but her next two lessons were both cancelled due to weather — freezing rain both times. Here’s hoping that the roads are clear enough to drive safely tomorrow as it is almost a half hour drive to her teacher, and I feel obliged to make every effort to get there.
What with recent snow days, sick days and a PA Day coming up this week, we seem to have been even busier than usual with the grands lately. On top of that, their parents planned a dinner party on the weekend, so we had both of the kids for a sleepover on Saturday. That was the first double sleepover and the first ever for him although he has a lot of afternoon naps here, but it went pretty well, even though we haven’t had much a respite from them just lately, so we’re not getting our batteries fully recharged.
It will be Zach’s third birthday this coming weekend. He is growing up into a nice young boy who can amuse himself happily for fairly long periods. And as hard as it is to believe for those of you who remember the thousands of baby photos of Nikki Dee, she will be five in April. My goodness.
It’s odd that I continue to go through this phase of not blogging very often, especially after blogging so very frequently for many years. Perhaps I will be re-invigorated when the nice weather rolls around — which will occur about two days before next winter begins. 🙂 I am doing quite a bit of reading in my spare time. Last night, I downloaded Elizabeth George’s latest Lynley mystery to my Playbook. It’s quite a treat to be able to decide that I want to read a certain book and to be able to obtain it within minutes. I still get most of my reading from the library, but it’s nice to have the eReading option handy every now and then.
