Chris's Mom has been here since Friday morning, and yesterday morning she and I went to St. Thomas to visit the Canadale Garden Centre (renowned as the best in Ontario). She bought us a Japanese Maple tree and a purple sandcherry bush, and I bought a silver leaf dogwood and some soil, and got my juices flowing about what I can do with the blank canvas that is my yard. We returned to the house at lunch time, just in time for Karen to arrive from Toronto. We had lunch together, and then Karen and I went out shopping, in search of something to keep her beads in for jewelry making. We came home with new organizer bags (for each of us — we found such a great deal that Karen bought me one for scrapping supplies), and groceries for dinner. After picking up the kids, the day flew by in a flurry of homework, making supper, eating, playing basketball, watching a hot air balloon float by, and putting the kids to bed. Before I knew it, it was 11:00, Karen was leaving to drive back to Toronto, and I was way too tired to think of writing something coherent.
So that's my excuse. Hopefully I'll find time to write another post later. After all, today is a special day!
