Monday Musings

Happy Monday!  It's the start of yet another week and right now, the sun is shining making me happy!  It looks like a beautiful day out, though there's nothing beautiful about -14°C (6.8°F).  Yup, it's freakin' cold out there.
The twins gave me some pretty good attitude this morning because I told them they had to wear their snow pants.  You would have thought I told them to start WWIII based on Pretty's reaction.  If her attitude is this bad at seven, I'm going to be in some serious trouble when the teen years arrive.  I shudder to think of the battles we're going to have.

We had the best weekend, this past week.  On Saturday, I spent most of the morning cleaning...the joys of domesticity!  But, I did it happily because my two bestest friends in the whole world were coming for dinner.  These two incredible women and I have been friends since grade ten, high school.  We were known in our circle of friends as the "Three Stooges".  We all played clarinet in the school band, we all worked for the same Canadian Tire store, we all love Bryan Adams and more.  We all share the same morals and beliefs and we have a great time together.

As we've gotten older and started our own families; it's been more difficult to see each other regularly and so we've decided to fix that.  We are going to start having monthly dinners, rotating houses.  Our spouses & kids come too making it one big, LOUD, happy evening.  This past Saturday, I hosted everyone for the first dinner...and it was amazing.  Good friends, great conversation and a pretty good meal made the weekend perfect!  I don't think it would have mattered what else we did the rest of the weekend, I would have followed the high from Saturday night.  To say I can't wait to do it again next month would be an understatement!

Oh yeah, I also finished book number 11 of my #50BookPledge; but, I'll write more about that later.

Hope you all have a fantastic week!
