How are you all tonight? We're digging out from a gross amount of snow, but other than that, all is well here in the hobbit hole. I despise snow in April, and according to the long term forecast, it's supposed to continue for the next couple of weeks. I turned off the furnace, as I always do, on April 1, and I really am hoping that I won't have to turn it back on in the next few weeks.

Our weekend has been a busy one, including going for a bloodwork appointment (which ended up not happening because Dr. B told me the wrong amount of time to fast), shopping for new capris and tshirts, ordering my new glasses, finding a cute outfit for Pip's portraits next weekend, an oil change, a haircut for my Beloved, and church. Whooo, no wonder I'm tuckered out.
On to the Chit Chat...
Reading - Fly Away Home by Jennifer Wiener. I think I may have read it before, as it's kind of striking me as familiar. And just for the record... I DID really enjoy the Host by Meyer. It's not fine literature by any stretch, but it's very engaging and I confess that several scenes have lingered with me over the past few days.
Watching - Call the Midwife and Mr. Selfridge on PBS. I adore the clothes so much in Mr. Selfridge. Same vintage as Downton.
Listening to - While I'm not listening to it at the moment, my primary musical entertainment this week has been the new NKOTB album. I love, love, love it! I'm just bummed that they haven't added an Alberta stop on their tour.
Baking/Cooking - Tonight was a basic Sunday supper. Maple Mustard Pork Roast, Mashed Taters, Peas, Gravy, and Yorkies. The yorkies didn't turn out so well tonight, but the gravy was yummy.
Happy you accomplished this week - Other than all that we got done this weekend, I'm pleased to say that I'm slowly getting back into a solid routine. Still a bit behind on things, but I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. And the clothes that I bought for myself yesterday... I'm proud to say that I am able to fit into a size smaller than before! Yippee!
Looking forward to next week - I need to colour my hair... desperately. I've had the box in the bathroom for more than a month. I'm also in the midst of planning Pip's first birthday party. I'm going to be ordering the invitations from Etsy (order the jpeg and print them myself). It's going to be mostly grown ups, of course, but I still want it to be cute.
Thankful for today - That we haven't had need to travel anywhere this weekend, through the bad weather. That the surety that spring will come... eventually.
***Bonus Question*** - What is your regular day to day "outfit"? In the winter, jeans and a tshirt or sweater. In the summer capris or a skirt (long and black usually) and a tshirt.
