Friday flowers, and feeling grateful

Is it Friday already? Thank goodness for that. It's been a busy, stressful week and I feel as though I've been running on a treadmill from the moment we got home from our dreamy holiday {always going, going, but never really getting anywhere}. Anyway, I made it through the madness and am ready for a few days off to enjoy some sunshine and fun. It's a long weekend here in Canada {yay for BC Day!}, and I have plenty of fun plans to keep me happy and help shake off the stresses of the week. I can't wait to spend Saturday afternoon and evening with my mom and sister, having a picnic supper and watching the fireworks at Butchart Gardens, and I'm also looking forward to a Sunday morning hike up Mill Hill with my three boys {I hear the view of the city from up there is amazing}. Other things that are making me feel happy/grateful this Friday:

* Dylan's lip stitched up nicely- after a bloody fall involving his face and the footboard of Sawyer's bed last night- and he's quite pleased with his battle scars. He was so brave in the clinic, and I was so proud of him. The doctor said he was the very best patient he'd had all day! It called for extra ice cream, let me tell you.

* weather nice enough for playing in the sprinkler

* my museum membership card- worth every single penny

* re-reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and loving it even more this time around

* stacks of mail this week! thank you, lovely friends!

* sunflowers in our garden, great big ones

* freshly sliced pineapple... yum!

* my comfy bed {much as I miss Sorrento, I do not miss that lumpy bed in our cabana!}

Alas, this is not my bed.

What are you grateful for this week? And have you got a lovely long weekend ahead of you, too? I hope so!

    Ohh your poor little Dylan :( Glad he was a good patient.

  3. Oh poor Dylan! I'm glad he's all stitched up and I've no doubt that he'll remember to apply ice cream multiple times a day. Have a great weekend and enjoy that extra time off!
