Other than that, my weekend is my own. My sister's sister-in-law's husband passed away this week and the funeral and visitation are tomorrow. DH and I will stop at the visitation before the banquet, but are not going to the funeral. I offered to make a dessert and pasta salad for the light dinner following the service, but waiting to hear from my sister what and how much might be needed. I'll go to church tomorrow morning, but probably alone as DD2 will sleep in and DH will hang at the cabin getting a few spring jobs done before coming home mid afternoon. I've got nothing scheduled any week night other than our nephews birthday party Friday night. I'll try to get to DD2's track meet Tuesday though.
I plan to go to a community conversation meeting next Sunday night on diversity and inclusivity in the community. As with most communities, our smallish town is much more diverse culturally, racially, and linguistically than when I grew up. I think that is a good thing and am pleased we are engaging in conversations to ensure the feel of our community is welcoming, yet long time residence still feel at home. I think compared to many places, at least outwardly, it seems we might be moderately successful in doing so. I'll be curious to talk with neighbors, other parents, business owners, seniors and youth if they experience this, and if not, discuss direction and solutions.
What started as a jam packed month fizzled to little after the weekend of the snow storm. My house could use a good top to bottom cleaning, so housework is planned for today. Hopefully by next weekend, we will see the end of the snow melt and can start on some yard work. I long for those nights spent outside on my deck, no running anywhere needed. The time is coming.
