Starting to do some soul-searching with this whole calorie counting thing. I wish the answers were more clear...

That day when you get a phone call from I'm kinda wishing I had answered it!

This girl. She still loves to put flour all over her hands and face when we bake. I love these parts about her that refuse to grow up!

A lazy tv-watching popcorn-eating evening was just what was needed tonight!

I usually prefer to stay home on a Friday night but tonight me and the girls joined some friends at a "God's Not Dead 2" movie night at a local church.

Here is an excerpt from today's weekly email that I send out to the congregation at work. I have really been enjoying using my joy of writing in this way.

We don't have any sort of fancy display of lights, but at least we are contributing!

The family was having this for dessert tonight. I wanted to try a little bit so Malia made me this cute little portion (of which I had 2 bites since it didn't taste very good...).

It was our annual Operation Christmas Child shoebox shopping day today!

My favorite crocheted creation to date (and I've made A LOT of things).

I don't normally drink hot beverages, but after having hot tea every morning at work when I was nursing a horrible cold sorts got me hooked. It's so comforting on fall days.

Day 2 of Couch to 5K tonight. It was so hard to get motivated but I was glad I did it!

An injury while crocheting...a nasty scissor cut when changing yarn colours. Ouch!

The message I got from my app after completing Week 1 Day 1 of the Couch to 5k tonight.

After a bit of a slow start this fall, I'm getting more into the crocheting spirit many projects!

We had a fun family outing tonight with bowling and supper at Montana's.

So nice to get random thank you gifts from your boss (aka pastor).

Our poor pup has been sick today. Can't keep anything down and has zero energy. Which, if you know Jack, is very strange. Here's hoping he feels better tomorrow...

Today I had the experience of fitting back into a smaller size of jeans again! This weight loss business is hard work but I'm getting there...

Monday, November 7, 2016


Usually on my Mondays off, I don't spend much time with Jack since I'm too busy getting caught up on stuff. But today I wanted to take advantage of the weather and go for a walk, so I figured I'd take the little guy with me. I also timed it so we would walk past the school when Malia was outside for recess so she could say hi to her pal!

Soaking up another unseasonably warm November afternoon.

My teenager might have a pillow obsession...

I love changing into comfy clothes as soon as I get home from work. Especially these days while still fighting this awful cold.

After a rough parenting morning getting the kids off to school, it was nice to start my work day with a cup of hot tea and my new favorite song to help get me in a better frame of mind.

We were all happy to pick up Jack from the bet this evening! This girl especially!
