Monday, February 27, 2006

I didn't leave the house today (but did get dressed before noon). I was home with the boys and the temperature was minus 20 degrees C with the wind chill. Blink and the moisture from your eyes freezes your eyelids shut. The weather forecast is for more of the same:Tuesday: flurries, Wednesday: flurries, Thursday: flurries....you get the idea. Once we reach March, we pyschologically prepare for spring, but the reality is that we could have two more months of winter.

I have some interesting work going on this week; I will eventually post about it. In the meantime today, the three of us were quite happy to be home and be lazy, meandering from watching shows in tv to colouring and then playing with Playmobil characters and computer games. I had a chicken in the crock pot and it turned out wonderfully. I made some homemade baby food and it actually turned out well. A very mundane Monday but lovely nevertheless. Tomorrow, my father is caring for the babe again and I will be working in my office, trying desperately to get an article written. But I look forward to a good day ahead, and I am going to be picking up a book I had ordered that will be really useful for my work. This means a trip to the Bookstore and Starbucks without kids.
How was your Monday and what are you doing on Tuesday?

    My Monday was great, Cathy. I was hardly home, spent only about 30mins on the computer (that's a first for me, lately), had a lovely lunch and 3 hour chat with a friend, another friend visited in the evening and stayed till 12.30am (I need sleep !!!). Tuesday is coming along nicely too. Hope yours goes well. Take care, Meow

    Glad you had a somewhat relaxing and rewarding day...you needed it!
    You know how my Monday was LOL, Tuesday's not much better, you know the drill, work work papers papers deadlines deadlines!

    Your day sounds devine and the the chicken, YUMMY! I would have loved a trip to the bookstore and coffee shop without the kids too.

    Maybe next time! :):)

    Philosophical Monday without
    even one coherent thought- and
    a bright rosy silly Tuesday in

    Well, you got dressed so you did more than me. haha :) I didn't have to work today or Sunday, so having two days off in a row was so great. :) As for Tuesday, it would be nice to get out with the kids but I'm so lazy in the mornings. Then, I work in the evening. I hope that you get lots of work done. And, have you had the cinnamon dolce latte . . . it's good!

    My monday has been long. On top of my own problems today, some friends had world class freak outs. And my siblings father is going in for surgery tomorrow and has a 25% chance of making it. Which covers my Tuesday, I am going to distract my sister while she is at the hospital.
    Now I'm going to watch Firefly on dvd and ignore people. yay.

    you know about my Monday. I was cooking and then writing. Made some phonecalls for work and that was it. Tuesday: this cooking thing makes the kitchen a mess. So it's cleaning day and then pancake day.

    I finally had a day to myself. Very nice to be able to lower my stress level.

    Hope the rest of your week is wonderful. Take care.

    I had a really slow Monday. Wanted to get more done that I actually did, but what the heck. Today is our older son's 13th birthday so we'll be having a family party this evening. Wheee! We have a teenager in the house. :-)

    I was asked to interpret into Greek at a guidingtour through a carfactory.
    It was the first time I ever done this and i was quite nervouse, but it ended very well and they paid quite well.

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    I'm ready for spring too, but we didn't really much of a winter here.

    I had my first day off in weeks. I'm actually glad my friend didn't end up getting the concert tickets, because I did tons around the house, bought a few books, and rented some movies. I even took a long walk despite the cold. I bought mochi bean buns, which I swear I will not try to make at home. I had tea WITH tapioca, so I can finally say "Hell, no!" as an educated consumer, instead of always wondering what bubble tea is like.

    Today is more of the same :)

    I love being home and cozy on winter days like that.

  1. Blogger Foxy said:

    sounds like you had a nice time with the kiddies...good for you. and that is COLD, wow, i thought we had it bad. and a day at the bookstore with a nice cup of starbucks coffee....very nice.:)

  1. Blogger fb said:

    Umm...haven't done anything...glad you got back safely from wearing strange purple pj's!

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Time spent with good friends is always nice.

    Sorry to hear that Tuesday is not much better. Let's shoot for a good Wednesday.

    I am off to the bookstore right now!

    I am in a work head space; can't relate today unfortunately...

    We had the cinnamon dolce latte before Valentine's and now they have subsituted it for soemthing else...I really enjoyed it too.
    Don't work too hard.

    Take it easy; what a good friend you are.

    Cleaning and pancakes. Sounds horrid, I'm sorry dear :(

    A day to yourself must have been wonderful!

    What an exciting day in your household today! What do you think about having a teenager?!

    Interesting and money besides! You win the prize for today!

    NO, actually you win the prize (sorry Gurgo)for the best start to the week :)

    I do as well; even though Mondays can be iffy.

    Cold is right; I can't even take the babe out of the house.

    Yes, I left the purple pajamas at the friendly B&B lady's house...:) Where have you been??

  1. Blogger Skye said:

    Cathy, Hi Ya! :-) Monday was undescribale but will post about it later. All in all made it thru unscathed! Have a Fantastic Day!

  1. Blogger Lisa said:

    My Monday was busy and my Tuesday is proving to be busy too !!!

    I still would love to be in Nova Scotia rather than the Island with all the rain and gray . I would take 2 extra months of winter any day .

    Play mobil ....ahhhhhhhhhh !!!!

    We just sold $4oo worth and still have a ton of it . It haunts my dreams !!!

  1. Blogger for_the_lonely said:

    Glad to hear that your Monday was great! Mine was good too...I worked out yesteray, and plan todo the same today. Tonight ( Tuesday) is American Idol..I am such a junkie. LOL

    Love ya,

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Looking forward to hearing about it....

    I actually enjoy playing with PlayMobil...we spent two hours setting things up and then the babe woke and we never really ended up playing with what we had set up!

    I am also addicted to American Idol but Amazing Race also starts tonight; a dilemma.
