‘Marching’ right along..

Day 60: and so begins a new month..as I turn the calendar this morning, the rain is coming down..rain and more rain in the forecast! If March comes in like a lion, will it go out like a lamb?”

Day 61: 'Red or blue?'..an afternoon spent at the Sportsmen's show in Abbotsford..a crowded venue filled with way too much testosterone, camo and facial hair.

Day 62: 'open wide?'

P3039177

Day 63: A great invention?..the 'remote'..gone are the days of thinking 'remote' meant living in a place far away from the cities ..now it seems that electronics cannot be worked without one..if only there was a 'remote' to turn off my 'brain' so I could sleep..or maybe to make the work week go by more quickly?

Day 64: as a new day begins, it has become 'crystal clear'..it's only 'Tuesday'!..now get to work!!

Day 65: 'Change'..

Day 66: 'Daylight'..the assurance that spring and summer are just around the 'next corner'..not even 7:00 a.m. yet and it is no longer dark outside when I leave for work!!

Day 67: 'One of these things is not like the other?'..How long to halogen light bulbs from Ikea last? How about over 9 years?

Day 68: all different directions? today Carlie and I went south of the border and Doug went east towards the Hope/ Harrison area..day trips together but separately..
a day filled with driving and more driving!..Me?..I just got to be the passenger!

Day 69: All dressed up and no 'fish to catch'?

Day 70: "a tisket, a tasket, a green and yellow basket?"..the basket may not be green and yellow but it sits atop the fridge and contains 'dish cloths'..a 'catch-all' that has a decorative purpose too!!

Day 72: "Where's the receipt?".. a 'rule' at this house..if you have been out shopping, don't come home without a 'receipt'..you may laugh and think it's funny but this 'rule' has saved us a few times..
like being able to return an item that has been purchased almost three months ago?

Day 73: 'out with the old?..today is the day that this floor is being removed..we have packed away all the breakables in preparation for the demo..stay tuned for more..

Day 74: ‘amid the chaos?’..Friday morning..off to work we go..the installers are returning today to finish…at least we hope it will be all done when we get home tonight?IMG_0811

  3. Sue...you are doing such a fabulous job. I am glad I didn't decided to join this challenge. I would have been embarrassed at what I would have posted. Keep up the great work.

  9. I don't suppose you could send some of that wet stuff our way??? I remember the days of having to walk across the room and change the channel. On the (old at the time) B&W TV. 3 stations to choose from - four if you counted the Spanish channel. :)
