Hi everyone! Welcome Friday's Fave Five. Please join us as we look back over the week and find the blessings in our lives. Again it will be short descriptions for me as my hand is still healing from surgery.
1. Coffee. Plain ol' fresh ground coffee. It's been getting me through the day. This year was the first time in about 25 years I took 2 weeks off back to back. It was needed this year due to carpal tunnel surgery. But I got sooo out of routine, late nights reading and then lazy mornings sleeping in and sitting around took their toll and getting back to work this week was a killer. That caffeine boost first thing in the morning and again in the early afternoon has been very much appreciated by myself and my foggy, sleepy brain.
2. The Big Move. On the long weekend we moved my son to where he'll be going to school for paramedic studies. It was a jam packed weekend that went smoothly and without incident. He's got a great condo with two friends who are brothers and have the same kind of values and goals as him. And they are friends so he doesn't have to move in with strangers. I'm very thankful that is off his to do list and he doesn't have to worry about housing anymore.
3. Family Bike ride in the new city. Last week I had mentioned a favourite was a bike rack we had purchased. Well it went with us as J. wanted his bike taken up in his move. We loaded all of our bikes and took a couple hours Sunday morning to explore some of beautiful trails. It was the perfect biking morning. Sunny but not yet too hot. The trails went through forest and through out a ravine so we went in and out of shade and sun. We didn't even dent discovering all the trails we have in that city. I loved it. It's exactly why we purchased the bike rack. I'm looking forward to using it even more. And not to worry, I wore a wrist splint and made sure not to put weight on my right hand. All went well. Missing was our oldest, but hey, it was a little hard feeling sorry for her as the girl is in Paris! Yes, that Paris,
4. Safe travels. To get my son to Edmonton, we had to drive a highway called the QEII, short for Queen Elizabeth II. It is the busiest highway per capita in Canada and let me tell you, it is insane. Drivers drive like crazy people. It is fast, it is practically bumper to bumper, and it is nerve wracking!! Getting off that highway always makes me breathe a huge sigh of relief. I'm sure people drive it without giving it a thought, but coming from the slower paced southern part of the province I just am not used to that kind of driving.
5. So far so good. I think. My appointment isn't till next week but my hand seems to be coming along quite well. It gets tired and a little weak at times but for the most part if I'm careful to follow the recovery rules, it is doing good as far as I can tell.
What are your favourites from the week?
