Oopsie, forgot about changing LTP threads! Sorry about that!

Ruth, you're our March winner! Here's a blinky for a future day...

Now on to April! Let's chat it up! :D

First grocery trip in the car today. ;) Such a nice ride! Will hopefully give it a washing and vacuum tomorrow (by hand to avoid scratching from the car wash brushes, though there is now a touchless car wash in the city). Still have kitchen clean-up and might get to washing the floors after the grocery bags have been emptied and moved. Not worrying too much if the floors wait for tomorrow or Thursday, especially if lower energy means I spend more time hanging out with my boys!

Our Saturday drive took longer than expected, but it was fun. Loving the car! The lake trip in the truck also went well and now we're back to weekday activities! Sore throats abound in the house, so probably a cold going around. Tim was happy to run in the school yard before the bell rang, then insisted he had to stay home. Hopefully he'll have a good day in class, anyway, especially at recess and lunch when he can run again. ;)

Once the old car is gone, we're planning an afternoon car ride in the newer vehicle. Tomorrow we'll be in the truck to drive on lower-quality road to the ILs' lake property - Tim has a seedling to plant from Earth Day events at school and we thought planting at the grandparents' retirement house might be a good idea in case we end up moving from our place in a few years, so he can watch it grow over the years.

A little more cleaning today in preparation for the paperwork to be completed on the sale of the old car - Brad cleaned up tools and plumbing parts that had been sitting around, I washed up in the kitchen and also swept a bit. I'm pleased with the results! Other cleaning related to the sale: Will need to organise in the laundry room soon - lots of miscellaneous items left in the old car, so when I cleaned it out on Monday I just dumped everything in a room where I could hide it. *Blush*

Too true about the housework! I just folded two loads of laundry, one from today and one from yesterday. Also had time today to clean the bathroom and sweep the floors. And my mum washed the dishes piling up in the kitchen (I dried) - so nice to have them come over for lunch and then help out. She also gave me some yarn she had saved from her crochet days! :)

This has been one busy week and the weekend is looking just as busy! We spent three hours at the horse farm today volunteering. I feel so behind on my house stuff, but I keep reminding myself that it will be here when I have time to get to it. LOL!

My car is sold and I've put a deposit on the new-to-us car. Might be picking it up on Saturday! :D
