It's back to work after a nice weekend off. Temperatures are a bit more human out there this morning...it has warmed up to -19 with highs expected of -9 during the daylight hours. Much better than the temperatures we had all weekend.
Garry is hoping to go to Saskatchewan this coming weekend to have a visit with his Mom. It will all depend on what the road conditions are like and how tired he is.
Quin arrived home for a few days off and has generously offered to help his Dad install the hardwood in the family room. Unless he gets called back early, that will be a great help to getting the flooring done before Christmas.
I decorated the Christmas tree early this year. Usually we don't decorate inside the house until the end of November. With the new flooring in the basement, we were hauling things back down to the basement and figured why are we hauling all the Christmas decorations back down when we will just have to haul them back up again in a couple of weeks! Over the next few days, I will get the rest of the decorations out of their boxes that we hauled into the LR and put them on display. This way I am also not going up and down the stairs that Garry is attempting to reno.
Temperatures are warmer up....yay!
I didn't have any shoveling to do on the weekend, which meant not having to be outdoors in the cold.
Christmas tree is all decorated.
Garry is making great progress with the stairs. He's learning as he goes and doing a great job of it.
I have my shopping list all prepared for the ingredients that need to do some baking to send along with Garry to his Mom. Just need to get to the store in the next couple of days.
Although I didn't have the best sleep last night, I had a nice warm bed and cozy bed to spend those "waking" moments in.
A busy week at work ahead of me...I much prefer being busy than attempting to look busy!
Being mindful of what I am eating and attempting to make healthy choices is a way of life for me now. Love it.
Have a wonderful Monday,Hugs,
