Oof. So there goes my string of daily participation in the 100 Day Project. I think I will just number these until #100 – even if it’s not quite a daily thing. Weekends are hard. I have so many expectations – I am going to do it all! – but there’s still a lot going on. And sometimes, reading a book for an hour is just a better choice all around.
The whole weekend was a bit of a blur – the electrician is making progress at the store and I spent a lot of time down at the shop deciding on pendant lengths and other practical lighting choices. Cate had her first soccer game and she did great. I think she’s decided defense is her thing and she’s motivated. Telfer and I had three other couples from the girls’ school – all parents we like so much – over for a dinner party on Saturday night. No kids! It was such a highlight – good food, good wine, good conversation. These are all people we have wanted to get to know more. After everyone left, Telfer and I were chatting and doing the dishes while George lurked by the stairs, watching us intently. He was basically asking, “can I sleep with you guys?” Yes, George, you can.
Spring Break is over and it’s back to school for the girls. We’ve had a smooth transition. Telfer has been in meetings tonight but the girls and I had such a sweet afternoon leading into dinner and bedtime. They played while I did all my March accounting and then after dinner, we read a bit of our current read-aloud: James and the Giant Peach. A good day.
