It’s been a heavy week. I won’t go into detail about various burdens that joined forced to keep me awake last night and give me a headache today. Suffice to say, I’m just feeling done today. It’s been a while since I pulled together a Friday’s Fave Five post and maybe I need to do one more than ever this week. Let’s give it a go.
Daughter’s night to cook. Laurinda made sticky ribs for dinner one night this week and served them with her homemade bean salad (which she calls health in a bowl) and a delicious potato and carrot dish. It was truly a restaurant-quality meal!
A new puppy. No, not ours. Last week, our neighbour brought a Yorkie puppy home from the same breeder we got Murphy from. It’s a joy every time I see her bring the pup out to the pen she set up in the backyard for a potty break. There’s nothing cuter than a Yorkie puppy!
Capri pants, flip-flops, and a pedicure. I donned a pair of capris for the first time this year and went for a ped early this week. It felt so much like spring that I had my nails painted my favourite Caribbean blue shade.
Hot tea and essential oils. I’m sipping a big mug of Headache Halo from David’s Tea as I write this post. That and a bit of Peppermint Glow essential oil blend rolled on my temples is calming after an emotional morning. (I wanted to make an appointment for a last-minute float but, dang, they were all booked up today.)
Mask mandate lifted. We’re slow to the post here in British Columbia, but as of today, facemasks are no longer mandatory in public buildings. We’re looking ahead to April 8 for the elimination of the vaccine passport. Yet to be determined is if any people who have been put on unpaid leave due to their vaccination status will be invited back to the workplace. Sadly, I’m not holding my breath.
There. I did it. Now I think I’m going to sign off and pull out some paint and play. Happy Friday and Happy Weekend, friends.
