So, I went on vacation, and wouldn’t you know it? Â I fell behind in my blessings challenge. Â It’s not that I had nothing to be thankful for, but rather that I was too busy enjoying what I WAS thankful for, and kept running out of time to blog. Â So my catch up for this week goes like this:
Day 242 – I am thankful for surprise visits. Â We ended up going out to London and surprised people at services out there this week. Â
Day 243 -Â I am thankful for my slave labour. Â I’ve needed to make cushion covers for our outdoor wicker couch at the trailer. Â I decided this was the day. Â Pulled out the sewing machine, sat outside, and sewed 3 sides of 6 different cushions. Â I HATE sewing by hand, but Grandma and my sister were there and thankfully sewed up the backside of each cover for me!
Day 244 -Â I am thankful for library internet service. Â Almost starving, with a hungry toddler, we settled in to eat with a WagJag coupon I’ve been saving for vacation. Â Pulled out the app, flashed the bar code, and the server says…….we only accept printouts of the coupon. Â Huh? Â This is a social media campaign they decided to run here isn’t it? Â And I am using the WagJag official app, aren’t I? Â Oh well, one trip to the Cambridge library, $1.00 of printing fees later, one drive back to the restaurant, and we were happily filling our bellies!
Day 245 -Â I am thankful for one moreÂ day. Â Hubby’s vacation is over, but Poppet and I spend one last day at the trailer before he comes to pick us up on his way home from work. Â Glorious!
Day 246 -Â I am thankful for water wings. Â Spent the day with our Â best friend’s parents. Â Hubby doing business, me just having a lovely visit. Â But at the end of the day we had an awesome BBQ and jumped in the pool for a swim. Â We had forgotten Poppet’s life jacket up at the cottage over our vacation, and I happened to find some water wings in Dollarama instead. Â They worked even better!
Day 247 -Â I am thankful I’m staying home this week-end. Â Lots of travelling over the past couple of weeks has left me with a HUGE backlog at home. Â The idea of travelling this week-end was a bit more than I could take, so I’m happily staying home with Poppet! Â
Whew, so we’re all caught up, I officially have a post today, and tomorrow we will begin again!
