Sunday Chit-Chat

What a beautiful weekend!  The sun was shining and spent some nice time outdoors paying with the dogs and NOT freezing my ass off.  My timing has been a little off due to the time change but it so nice to have supper and it is still light out :)

I am playing along (again) with Carla's chit-chat, and we always start off with a picture.  This is a shot I took of Gala today, doesn't it look like she is giving me stink eye?  Why are you taking pictures?  Let me in, already.....

  • Reading:  I am going to start a new book this week, there are lots on my "to read" list and I haven't decided yet.  I have the entire Shannara series (fantasy) by Terry Brooks, or the "Outlander" series by Diana Gabaldon.  Of course, there are always a few supernatural books in my collection to.
  • Listening to:  I have taken refuge in the basement, it is silent other than the hum of the computer.
  • Watching:  Tonight I have a bunch of laundry to fold so I will probably watch Chopped or Property Brothers that I recorded earlier.
  • Cooking/Baking:  I should really get some bread started, we are out.
  • Happy you accomplished this week:  I am drawing a blank.
  • Looking forward to next week:  I work on Monday but the rest of the week - March break.  Mind you, I have to take Evan to CHEO on two separate days which eats up my relax time.
  • Thankful for today:  Having the money to pay for car repairs.  At least now I feel safe driving to Ottawa with the children in the van.
  • Bonus Question: What was your first job?  I can't remember which I did first. (getting old lol) I pumped gas (and propane) at a gas station.  Yep, checked oil and cleaned windows.  And I worked at a grocery store, both as cashier and deli clerk.
 I created this gorgeous card this weekend.  I used sketch #300 from the Sketch Saturday challenge blog.  I also participated in the following blog challenges:
