I am much much more mobile this week - so awesome to be off crutches.
Rob and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary last week - we had a really nice party at our house with many friends and family members here to help us celebrate. I am pretty sure I took zero photos of the party - but it was very special. And 3 cheers for ordering food from Save On Foods!
On Saturday Loic turned 6. SIX! I have no words except how did this happen?? Such a nice boy we have.
I am back at work early; I accepted a 6 week training opportunity at work in another department. While the learning curve is steep, and I am at that awkward stage of feeling like I am not helpful/I am a hinderance to my co-workers, I know this won't last.
I start work early and leave before my family is awake - I am not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I like how peaceful it is and on the other hand, I miss the morning chaos slightly :)
My parents have been watching the kids for us a lot this week because Maelle's daycare is closed for a break and we didn't have a camp for Loic. They have been spending mornings with Yma and afternoons with my folks - tomorrow is an all day affair with the grandparents. I have a very subtle sense of peace being at work when my kids are with my parents or Rob compared to when they are at daycare or school. It isn't a bad feeling when they are at those other places, it is more of a more peaceful feeling when they are with family. This is something I observed myself thinking this past year. It is more a passing thought I get during the day when I think about the kids - I am not worried about them at other places though - they do quite well at school and daycare. Especially little miss slightly bossy :) she rules the roost at daycare that one!
Here are some garden pictures I took this week! We are now eating a lot out of the garden and I love it.
|The amazing garlic harvest!|
And No - it isn't elephant garlic!!
|We went to Beta 5 on the night before his birthday for ice cream sandwiches - he loved his!|
|Erin and I - 10 years ago last week!|
We looked so young......
|My favourite tomato - Rambling Red Stripe|
This plant makes so many lovely tomatoes!
|A black tomato - last week people stopped to look at the garden because of this plant!|
Oh and I have to present and hand in my thesis soon..........you know, that whole Masters Degree thing I have been doing for close to a year :)
As I said - it is interesting around our place!
