Hi everyone! Can you believe it's Friday already? This week just flew by. Mind you it was a short work week for me as I have today off. I'll have an extra long weekend as Monday is a stat holiday and I also added Tuesday as a day off. I took my holiday days in small chunks this year so I'll have a couple of nice 5 day weekends like this. Not going anywhere but just knowing I've got time off is wonderful. Lots to be thankful for. Please join me as we look for the blessings in our everyday and learn to be thankful to God for them.
~ Hubby that sends pics of Little Libraries and their contents. My hubby knows my love for the Little Libraries around town and when he sees one he is gracious enough to get a pic and send me the address. Sometimes he sends me a picture of the contents too and if there is something I want he nabs it for me. Love these little ways that he shows he loves me.
~Blizzard evening with good friend. My good friend came by for an evening of some much needed girlfriend time and she came with Dairy Queen blizzards in hand. I haven't had one in forever and it tasted especially good sitting on the deck enjoying a beautiful evening with conversation and laughter. I gave the Coffee Crisp one a try this time around but my favorite is still the Choco Cherry Love.
~Flowers blooming! My flowers are blooming in spades! Don't know what I am doing right this year but I'm enjoying their show that they are putting on. All the colors and variety always make me smile. God is an artist!
~Negative COVID tests Here in Alberta they now have asymptomatic testing available. They started in a few select pharmacies. Because this darn virus can be spread by people who are not showing any symptoms and because I care for children and for aging parents, I thought I would go ahead and get tested at one of the asymptomatic testing pharmacies. I had the results within a couple days and was very happy to hear they were negative. One of my dayhome families were also awaiting on a test for their cousin who thought they might have some symptoms of COVID. The child has not been at care all week just in case and good news, it was negative there too. It was a bit nerve wracking awaiting that test. If it had been positive their family would have all had to be tested and of course if positive that would filter down to the dayhome and I might have had to close for 14 days. So thankful for that negative test result.
~One on one day with one of the dayhome kids. Yesterday I only had 1 child come so we had lots of fun doing things together that we can't do when they are all there. I kind of like these special times once in a while. I find it really build relationship with that child. I wouldn't want to do it all the time like that, it is so much more work and tiring, but once in a while it's wonderful.
What were your favorite blessings from the last week?
