The Weekend

There was the discovery of pomegranates, and now there will be a flurry of delicious little red seeds 
adorning the food on our table.  This makes me happy.

There was thrifting and dollarama, two of my favorite ways to shop!
 Crappy chinese food that, despite it's crappiness, was still delicious. Does that happen to anyone else? 
There was new snow outside and new cement in the basement for playing (more on these later)!
And much crafting for the upcoming fair, and for specialized one-of-a-kind birthday presents.
 Then there was some mega fun at said birthday party, where the Little was enthralled 
with the big kids, and learned how to squeal from someone small.

Today?  Today we recover.  Laundry and extra cups of coffee and quiet.  Naps on the couch 
and the warm sound of a good old fashioned radio on in the kitchen.  Hmm, maybe something comfy and cozy on the stove...

And plenty of watching the snow fall in big beautiful flakes, hoping the sun doesn't come out
 and melt away our winter wonderland....

How was your weekend?
