Enjoy 2.5 min of Spring (even though it may be raining out there)!…
Happy March Break, Everyone!
I had such high hopes of using this week wisely and productively…. I guess it depends, really, what your definition of either word is. You decide.
On Monday, I awoke to discover a not-so-frigid refrigerator. “What do I do? WHAT DO I DO?! (Seriously, Monday mornings are no time for such discoveries, even if it is March Break!) I made a call to my father-in-law, who just happened to have a back-up kicking around. With disaster averted, my Mom and I were able to get a little “Spring” in our steps with a visit to “Spring Tide” at Gage Park, in Hamilton, ON.
Tuesday involved a walk to the library to collect more books ready on reserve. I MIGHT read 14 books this week! I wrote a Blog and learned some things and stuff by reading other people’s Blogs. And, I tried out a new recipe…
Secret… the Crunch comes from chips! Perfect if you’ve got some stale-ish ones around, and they may already be seasoned. Sea salt and Malt Vinegar works well with fish, as does cheesy ones.
That brings me to Wednesday, when I was going to get serious and do things. I did. I went to Lil’ Monkeys in Burlington with my dear friend and her 2 1/2 year old son. We played and we played and we played! This place is absolutely brilliant! It is an adult-size playground, encouraging adults to play with their children. Wouldn’t it be a great place for a school trip (if we could get past the insurance forms and whatnot)?! There is a scooter section and large-sized, padded building blocks, air hockey and basketball. to name a few things! Then I went home to do laundry and make cupcakes.
Tomorrow, is bill and budget day, oh yay… will the excitement EVER end? I can’t believe that March Break is almost over.
Productive, or not so much? That is the question. – Family… check. Friends… check. Blog(s)… check. Cooking… check. Playing… CHECK! Chores… check (some)
HAPPY GREEN BEER AND SHAMROCK DAY, EVERYBODY!!
