What's Up Wednesday


This month flew by, so let's see what's up on this last Wednesday of February 2023.

What we're eating this week...
Sunday - Out
Monday - Chicken Pot Pie
Tuesday - Pancakes
Wednesday - Leftovers
Thursday - Chicken thighs, potatoes, vegetables
Friday - Risotto and Spinach Salad
Saturday - Wings

What I'm reminiscing about...
I looked back at the last few February What's Up Wednesday posts.  In 2020, the thing I was dreading was "getting sick with COVID" even though we were still planning to take our trip to Jamaica in March, how quickly things changed! Last year my topic for what I was dreading had to do with the Ukraine-Russia war/conflict, and it's kind of hard to believe that is still going on.

What I'm loving...
A lot of my friends on Instagram (and I actually mean people that I know in real life) ski and I've been loving to see everyone out there enjoying the winter with their friends and families - black diamonds, glades, green runs, apres ski - I love it all!

What we've been up to...
Trying to make sure we get our volunteer hours in for E's ski club.  Each family is required to do 15 hours, and mostly it's been Dave doing the hill set up for an hour here and there.  Fortunately there are a few tasks coming up that I've signed up for the banquet and some races.  We should be fine to get our hours in.

What I'm dreading...
Sorting through all the clutter to prepare for our reno.  We will have to pack up a bunch of things and we want to clear out the clutter before we do that. I do love throwing stuff away but I also feel guilty about creating so much waste.

What I'm working on...
I had a new workout plan all set out, and I got through all of one week of it before I injured myself skiing, so now I'm working on taking it easy and getting back to it soon enough. 

What I'm excited about...
Dave and I booked a quick trip to San Francisco for the spring.  He has to be there for work so I'm going to tag along and then we can spend a few extra days there.  I went there in November 2019 so there are a few places I want go again, and some other places I missed the first time. 
A must! 

What I'm watching/reading...
The Scotties curling tournament, Full Swing (the golf show on Netflix), and Downton Abbey.


I've started making my way through my 2023 Reading List and will write about this month's books on Monday. 

What I'm listening to...
This month's selection is a mix of Afrobeats, Rihanna, and '90s rock.

What I'm wearing...
I finally got a few new things for skiing, another base layer, and a new long sleeved shirt.  Many of my things are looking a little tired and it's time to upgrade. 

What I'm doing this weekend...
I'm taking the day off on Friday to take E to a ski race and we all may go up and ski for the day, then we have friends coming for dinner, skiing on Saturday at Moonstone, and then another race for E at The Heights on Sunday. 

What I'm looking forward to next month...
PDAC (the mining conference), our trip to Quebec for March Break, St. Patrick's Day, Dave's birthday, and the first day of Spring.

Linking up with Shay.


  1. I've been enjoying all your skiing pictures and, as you know, we're not a skiing family. I was really hoping to spend some time at our local hill this winter but it's been such a hard winter for skiing weather. Ugh... And yes, we're often working on our dance volunteer hours over here too! I feel you.

  2. I am loving all your skiing photos; even if I have zero desire to ever ski again. LOL.

  3. It is hard to believe that it's been a year of conflict in Ukraine and it doesn't seem any closer to a resolution. So sad. Love your ski photos, but I'd prefer seeing the photos to going myself!

  4. I LOVE to see all of your skiing pictures! It is one of the best ways to get some exercise outside in the winter-- I just love it!

  5. SF is such a fun city. I haven't been there in years. I hope your ski injury heals quickly! I love seeing your family's ski photos. My kids love chicken pot pie, so I try to make that a few times in the fall and winter months. I hope you have a great weekend.
