Missed Post #1

According to the rules of the challenge, if I miss a day (a school day that is) of writing my blog, I have to write an extra blog post the next day to explain why I missed the previous's day's post. Yesterday was the first day that I missed — not bad for 7 weeks! Here's my excuse:

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!


  1. Special - Like Happy Anniversary Leanne & Chris!

  2. Posting every day is quite a feat. I sometimes have difficulty posting 3 times a week, so I'm very impressed you've only missed on day. How nice that Chris' mom could be there for Mother's Day.

    Oh yeah, and I second Julie - Happy anniversary. Is that 14 years today for you guys?

  3. Yes, Denise, 14 years! And if I had a full-time job, I can't even imagine posting 3 times a week! You are the one who is dedicated. I'm just stuck with a lot of time on my hands!
