In the Club


It’s St Patrick’s Day and I haven’t worn a lick of green. (I know, here come the pinches!) I didn’t make corned beef, or eat soda bread or drink a shamrock shake. I didn’t help my kids make leprechaun traps or have them pose for green-clad portraits to post on Facebook.

What I did do, however, was to hit a new goal at the gym this morning. The photo is blurry, which is apt, as that is how my vision was at the time as well! 1000 meters rowed in five minutes- a goal set by the other women I work out with, and something fun to work for. It took a few weeks for attempting it, but today was the day!

Nice to be in the club!

In Progress


Our wonderful downstairs tenant (aka Dad) has been working on freshening up our entry stairs.

The crumbling popcorn ceiling is now gone, replaced by a smooth and freshly painted ceiling. The wood floors and railing have been sanded and the walls have been cleaned, primed and painted.

We still have the floors to finish, the stairs to strip and paint and all the trim to paint, but it is looking (and feeling) so much better already!
