Well, it's supposed to reach a balmy 21*C, that would be 70*F, today. Beautiful! And then things take a nose dive tomorrow and we're supposed to have wet flurries by Saturday. Welcome to spring in Southern Alberta.

Today my oldest arrives for a 10 day or so visit. I can hardly wait. So I'm just popping in here really quick to say hello and then it's back to getting things ready for her. I've got to do a quick clean and clear out of her room as we use that as a spare room when she's not here. It does tend to pile up with things we get too lazy to put away. Grocery shopping for her favorites and food requests will happen tonight after I talk to her. I like to cook what she wants while she's here because I know it's the only time she gets to eat those dinners. So I already have tonight's request of meat loaf, so I'll be making that this afternoon.

I'll pop in and out of the blog this next week as I can. I want to soak up every minute I can with her. I know we'll be watching Survivor and Amazing Race together which was something we always did before she moved. I miss having her as an Amazing Race watching partner. And I'm sure there will be very much chatting, and maybe a game of Star Trek Monopoly or two, and we have plans to watch While You Were Sleeping. She's never seen that. And we'll have a girl's night with me youngest daughter, too.

Friday's Fave Five will still be on! And if you really, really miss me I do have all sorts of reviews up on my book blog. I've been doing great with my reading this year, already I've read 10 books with a couple more almost done. I think that's a record for me. Anyway, I've got reviews up on them there.

So I'm off waiting with bated breath for her to drive up!

What a FUN week you have planned. Enjoy every minute! Watching those reality shows is always so much better with company isn't it :) I'm starting to get the shakes knowing Dancing with the Stars starts up again on Monday and me with no cable. Yikes!! :)
