Arriving Early...Later--or Whatever

By Belinda

This was my day yesterday. If anyone out there is bored with life, just come join me in mine. It is very exciting. :)

Before going to work this morning I looked at three bananas on the verge of being over ripe and quickly peeled them and mixed them with eggs, oil and sugar, then put them in the fridge for later, to add dry ingredients and make banana muffins. I came home from a day at work with the knowledge that also waiting in the fridge was a 6lb package of ground beef, that I had bought several days earlier and which needed to be made into two large cell group casseroles.

But first when I got home I asked Paul if he wanted to watch a movie I had ordered online and been waiting to watch--I needed to decompress. He was okay with that, so while we ate supper we watched it. 

I emerged from our TV room at 7.40 with trays of dinner dishes in hand, ready to tackle the muffins and two giant shepherd's pies. The thought of muffins triggered an alarming thought in my head. Writers Nest!!! (Writers Nest is the writing group that meets in our home, monthly.)

I glanced at the front door--not a soul in sight--praise the Lord! I quickly threw the dinner dishes into the dishwasher and put on a pot of coffee--just in case--but God had mercy on me. It had never happened before that not one person came to Writers Nest but I was so glad that tonight, we were all on the same page. "Perhaps it was the long weekend mixing us all up," I thought. 

Long weekend? No, that was LAST weekend, I just realized--it's only Monday. TOMORROW is Writers Nest!! 

Today it IS Tuesday and my heart palpitations have calmed. I'm SO looking forward to seeing my friends tonight.

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.

He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
