Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, blogging friends. How was your weekend? I hope it was a good one. Ours was a mix of socializing with friends (yesterday) and quiet (Saturday). My mind is a blank this morning and I can't think of a single thing to share, so...I will get right to the funny stuff. Enjoy and have a great day ahead!

This Week

Happy Friday, everyone! How are you all doing? What have you been up to? Anything new and interesting happen? Or new but not that interesting? Have you been out and about? Seen any cool movies? Read any captivating books? Participated in a fun activity? What has been the highlight of your week? Share away in the comments. I enjoy hearing from you.

Yesterday we drove up to Ottawa to see the younger daughter! Oh, what an amazing feeling it was to be able to hug her. It’s hard to believe that four months of being away in New Zealand have come and gone. I’m just glad she’s home safe and sound. We took her for lunch and caught up on news. Her boyfriend was home but not able to join us. He is studying for his master’s degree and he was working on an assignment that was due later that day. We did send home some lunch for him so he could enjoy the great food we had at the restaurant. It was a wonderful day and we really enjoyed seeing these two amazing young people who are happy and thriving. They are both very hardworking; going to university while holding down two jobs. I’m beaming with pride!

My daughter has also gotten into yoga. Here she is practicing it:

This week has been a very busy and exhausting one for me. I’ve been cleaning up the house and ridding it of all the hairballs. I vacuumed up enough fur to make a new cat. What we should do is get into the habit of brushing our cats regularly, which would certainly help. Well, no, that’s not right. We should get into the habit of brushing our younger cat, Kazee, because she not only lets us but also enjoys it. The older cat, Mocha, who is slightly feral, would probably freak out and send us to the hospital with shredded faces.

Wednesday night I finally got to a chore that I’ve been meaning to do for a very long time: sort through my entire wardrobe and donate whatever I didn’t want anymore and whatever didn’t fit. I’ve been avoiding this but with the holidays coming up I felt more motivated because I really want to get a whole bunch of stuff over to the Salvation Army or to the food bank’s thrift shop before Christmas. I hated every minute of this chore but it’s over and done with. Hold on while I turn around so you can pat me on the back. *snort*

The decluttering madness continues. Next project: tackling the bookcases!

I woke up to heavy snowfall. Not the worst I’ve ever seen but that’s easy for me to say since I’m not the one that went out to shovel it. It looked beautiful when I woke up as freshly fallen show always does. Now, after all the shoveling and city snow cleaning, it looks messy and grey and wintry outside. It will be snowing for the rest of the day and I plan to just cozy up inside with a good book.

And that’s it, my friends. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

Question Of The Day

I've always liked the name Samantha, (Sam for short), so that would definitely be a number one choice.

And you?

Happy Monday, everyone! How are you doing? What are you up to? How was your weekend? Ours was relatively peaceful and relaxing. We like it that way. I did get together with some friends on Saturday and it was a lot of fun. We chatted up a storm and shared a lot of laughs. It was great.

This morning I woke up to snow. Just a sprinkling, mind you, but a reminder that winter is definitely on its way. Not my favoutire season of the year, but I will admit that freshly fallen snow is magical!

Okay, now let's get to the funny stuff because that's what you're all here for.

Have a great day ahead!
