It’s been a busy lots-to-be-thankful week. Let’s look back at a handful of favourite things with this week’s Friday’s Fave Five post.
Family. It was just a couple of days, but the quality of time spent with my girls far outweighed the quantity. We’re counting down days until our next visit.
HOT weather. We love the heat around here—grateful, at the same time, for the option to find respite as needed during the day, and sleep comfortably at night in our air conditioned home.
Summer hair cuts for the dogs. They were both looking far too shaggy. I love their summertime look!
Salad days. It’s a joy to shop for groceries at the garden again. Right now, we’re harvesting spinach like mad before it bolts and trying to stay on top of the radish harvest. It’s time to do another sowing to fill in the bare spots where I’ve picked the gardens gifts.
Eyes wide open. Our community, indeed our country, is still reeling following the discovery of the graves of 215 children at the Kamloops Indian Residential School. There is a big part of Canadian history I’ve been blind to—as have many of us. This horrific discovery alludes to only part of the story. Now is the time to listen, seek to understand, and challenge ourselves. The “favourite” piece this week is that we’re doing that.
