Inspired by Amber's post at Strocel.com, I've compiled a list of things I've learned in the past month.
1. Sophie isn't scared of being surrounded by chickens.
2. If your kid is sick and you end up not going to the Island for Thanksgiving, turkey dinner at the White Spot is more depressing than a regular dinner at home.
3. Rain gutter shelving is easy to install and makes for a great display area for picture books.
4. There are at least one or two members of the younger generation in the Vancouver Quilters' Guild.
5. Canadians care about climate change. If you look closely at this picture, you can find my family in the Bridge to a Cool Planet march.
6. $650,000 can get you a 100 year old house in the Main St area that's falling apart at the seams (don't worry, we didn't put in an offer).
7. Giving a toddler a Sharpie isn’t always a bad idea.
8. The camera smile that Sophie flashes these days is definitely genetic.
9. I can sew Halloween costumes for Sophie. I also learned that you can fit two full quilts worth of batting under that bee tunic.
10. Group costumes are a lot of fun! Especially when you stay in character and solve the mystery of the missing emails! Jinkies!
