Week in the Life: Wednesday

Morning // I wake up just before 6 a.m. as Kyle’s getting read to head out the door and he announces that there’s at least 6″ of snow on the ground and it’s still coming down. (He didn’t lie! At 6:15 I measured almost 8″ of snow on our back deck!) Since I slept amazingly, I decide to stay awake, so I grab my Macbook and finish off yesterday’s Week in the Life post. Of course, the morning I get out of bed early, Isla sleeps in, but oh well. Before Isla got out of bed I shovelled a “trench” along our deck so the dogs could find their way to the stairs. (Or else they’d pee ON the deck and that’s just not cool.) Isla wakes up and I make her breakfast (Cheerios with some Fruit Loops tossed in), and around 9 a.m. we bundle up to go outside to shovel snow. That takes me almost 2 hours, and then it’s time to shower and warm up before having some lunch!

Afternoon // Since Isla slept in we watch The Voice results show and then I put her down for a nap. She’s reluctant, but I tell her that if she naps, we’ll bake muffins when she gets up. That’s good enough for her, so she agrees and has a nap. While she’s sleeping I do a bit of freelance writing. I notice that Daphne’s having some trouble moving as well, which is concerning, but it usually resolves itself. Isla wakes up and we make these banana chocolate chip muffins! She really loves helping me mix the ingredients and cannot wait to have a muffin after dinner!

Evening // I throw together some shake & bake chicken, steamed carrots and mashed potatoes for dinner and sit down once Kyle gets home from work. After dinner, Kyle volunteers to clean up the dishes (best husband ever), and Isla and I hang out in the living room and watch the last bit of a movie that’s on TV. Soon it’s Isla’s bedtime and she chooses “Where’s Spot?” for her story. Kyle and I watch a couple episodes of Pawn Stars on the internet before heading to bed.

How was YOUR Wednesday?? Did you get any snow?
