February 2021 is looking a little brighter for us. The kids are back in school (WHOOO HOOOO!!!), our region has opened up a little bit (this means we went into the library the other day!!!), Rachel is back to in person dance (!!!), and our case counts are down. It feels like there is a little more hope on the horizon. Also, this appears to be the "Winter" version of What's Up Wednesday -- read on to see what I mean :)
What I'm looking forward to next month... I don't know. Normally I'd be excited about March Break and Can-struction but I'm guessing Can-struction will be online again and March Break is now April Break. I'm looking forward to our St Patrick's Day celebration. I always make the Beef & Guinness Stew from the Guinness factory and it's DELICIOUS!!! (You can find the recipe here.)
I'm also hoping that I might be able to start hanging out laundry in March. We shall see...

What else is new... I am a substitute secretary/librarian for our school board. I was fortunate to get work in one school covering a long-term leave for the past two and a half months but, as of this week, I'm back to being on call. So I'm waiting for my phone to ring and checking out the job board, hoping to pick up some work. Monday was a "snow day" ("weather impacted distance learning" day -- meaning the kids had schoolwork but it doesn't really count) and yesterday I didn't get a call. I'm hoping to work three to four days a week but we shall see... So I'm trying to find ways to fill my time and, at the same time, hoping for jobs to be assigned to me. It's a weird limbo space to be in.
If I don't get a job today, I will enjoy reading all the posts in the What's Up Wednesday link up. If I do pick up a job for today, then I will have to read those posts later :) Happy Wednesday everyone!!!
