What I'm reminiscing about...

The church that I attended when I was growing up is shutting its doors this week and the building is being put up for sale. The congregation will continue in a smaller church just outside of town, but the last Sunday service was held there on this past weekend and then on Good Friday the final service will be held there.  The service was live-streamed on Facebook and I was able to watch it later.  Not only was it the last service, it was also a retirement "party" of sorts for the organist (who was also my piano teacher).  It is sad to see the church close and I have so many fond memories of my time spent there - church services, Sunday School, confirmation classes, junior choir, bell choir, variety shows, piano recitals, Brownies, church suppers, baptisms and funerals.  

What I'm loving...

I love our new Peloton.  It has been fun to try something new and I like that I can do a quick 30 minute bike and get a good workout. I'm still getting the hang of it all, but I can get my shoes out of the pedals a bit easier than I could at first.

What we've been up to...

We have walked to pick up the kids a few times lately and it has been fun to hear about their days on the walk home and also stop by the playground where they are able to meet up with their friends at the playground.

Q is walking his "puppy" on the way home.


What I'm dreading...

We all know it's coming, the kids will be sent home from school for Easter weekend and I'm doubting they will go back, and it will be back to virtual learning.  I know we can do it, but I'm dreading it all the same.

What I'm working on...

Learning about white privilege and changing my behaviours (choosing better words, identifying micro-aggressions, calling out racism).  

What I'm excited about...

Eating outside.  Dave and I had lunch on a patio last week and although it has been a little chillier since then, we will get our patio set cleaned up soon and eat our suppers out there. 

What I'm wearing...

My new All Birds flats.  They have several colours, but I chose black.  I ordered 8.5 which is what I wear in most shoes, but I think I could have gotten away with a half size smaller. 

What I'm watching/reading...

We are watching Workin' Moms (catching up on Netflix), Stanley Tucci's food show, and chipping away at various Golden Globe and Oscar nominees when we can. 

I am reading Jerry Seinfeld's book, "Is This Anything?". 

What I'm listening to...

Keeping up with current events through The Daily and The Bridge podcasts. 

What I'm doing this weekend...

It is Easter so we will do a few things - view our church services online, make an Easter cake, dye some eggs, hunt for eggs on Easter morning and make ribs for our Sunday dinner. 

What I'm looking forward to next month...

Easter festivities, warmer weather, hopefully better news about the vaccine rollout for Canada.

What else is new...

Q has a new bike with pedals (but no training wheels) so we (mostly Dave) are teaching him to ride a bike.

Linking up with Shay today.


  1. I hope you don't have to start doing school from home again!

  2. Love the peloton!! I hope you don't have to do school from home again!

  3. I'm also dreading how much (please God, if) school we'll be doing from home. Ugh. And yes, it does feel like the vaccine news is getting brighter every day, just not quite fast enough...

    We picked up the kids from school for the first time yesterday and it was so fun! I've missed being on the schoolyard.

  4. Sorry to hear your childhood church is closing. I'm pretty sure that we won't be going back to school once spring break comes; at least not for two weeks.
