I know it’s not best form to do 2 posts like this in a row, a week apart. I had grand plans for posts this week but they fell by the wayside. This week will be better… but it’s no excuse not to keep this going, because I like it!

Outside my window… I spotted blossoms on the apple tree today.

I am thinking… about how to get back into a household routine. I was well-established in my cleaning routine once upon a time, but it’s fallen by the wayside.

I am thankful… for the sunshine today. It’s warm enough but breezy – just perfect in my opinion.

In the kitchen… our oven is waiting for a repair. But I fired up the BBQ today, and that’s exciting! I thought I would be a year-round BBQ cook, but I’m really not. We had my favourite burgers which are seasoned with Montreal Steak Spice.

I am wearing… workout-style capris & a tee shirt. Casual clothes for a bit of housecleaning that needs to be finished.

I am creating… a blog schedule. I want to be more regular with my posts.

I am going… to bed early tonight. I want to get a good start to the week.

I am wondering… if I can find some chicken wire on Freecycle. We need to bolster our fence against Cora the wondrous escaping dog.

I am reading… a Weight Watchers magazine, looking for healthy inspiration for the week.

I am hoping… that our little chick is a hen. Really, really hoping! It may be that I’m getting a little attached to the wee thing – I want to keep her!

I am looking forward to… Bootcamp tomorrow. No, really. I was only available to go twice last week, but I’m looking forward to continuing to build healthy habits (and it’s actually sort of fun. I even went in the rain).

I am learning… That exercise can inspire me to eat more healthfully, and move a little more throughout my day. One good thing leads to another. It seems so obvious, but I’m really just starting to “get it.”

Around the house… I got a new vacuum. This is oddly exciting. It’s a Shark Navigator Liftaway Pro, and I think it’s swell. The dog disagrees.

The Mr. is… cooking this week! He’s doing all the meal planning and dinners all week long. Nice guy, eh?

One of my favorite things… I bought this CD, Every Mother Counts, from Starbucks. I think it’s a great album, and $8 from each purchase will be donated to CARE for maternal health programs in coffee-growing countries. Pretty cool. They’re available through May 9th, so grab one while you can.

A few plans for the rest of the week: A Dr. appointment, a visit, and lots of workouts. I will go to bootcamp as often as possible and walk on the other days. It’s time to get healthy again.

A peek into my day… I love wall decals as an inexpensive way to decorate. Here’s a new one I picked up on clearance ($3!) at a local candle store (which as you know, we now frequent):
