Facing a New Month

April saw Odds and Ends participating in the A to Z challenge. I neglected to see where I was before I began so I cannot post results of the challenge as far as statistics go.

We spent the weekend having mother and daughter adventures; among them a trip to the store and doing a bit of laundry. She enjoys the walk and watching the front load machine finish its cycle.

I saw some things that I plan to furnish the apartment with, but they will be bought over time in small segments. I purchased a pair of pliers and a small set of wrenches so that I have them for emergencies.

The month ahead is full of promise, and I am settled in enough to begin finishing all the things that I have to do to make sure that our daily needs are met even in the event of an emergency.
