#100HappyDays Continued – Days 122 – 128
Another week of photos for your viewing pleasure. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed each moment.
Day 122 – November 5, 2014: Yummy homemade, gluten filled cinnamon banana bread.
Day 123 – November 6, 2014: Today I was really happy and excited about our future family – I have not felt this way in a long time. We met with our local adoption agency and officially started the adoption process!! So, when I went grocery shopping in the afternoon at my favourite store, Costco, my excitement lead me to buy myself a Christmas flower thing! As a rule, we do not decorate for Christmas before Mr. MPB’s birthday, but I guess I officially broke that rule for the first time ever.
Day 124 – November 7, 2014: We had family staying with us for a few days. We don’t see them very often as they live about 3,525km (2190 miles) away. In fact, this was the first time we met there little man, who is now 10 months old. In addition to being one of the happiest babies I have ever met, he also had the cutest little feet.
Day 125 – November 8, 2014: Mr. MPB and I attended the wedding today. The simple little details at weddings always make me smile.
Day 126 – November 9, 2014: After a treacherous 5 hour drive back home due to a horrible snow storm (the drive normally takes 3 hours), I came home to a surprise from the relatives staying at our house – a beautiful thank you card and wonderful surprises hidden throughout our kitchen. So far I have found a cute little pepper plant, extra virgin olive oil, organic balsamic vinegar, root vegetable chips, dark chocolate covered pomegranate and yummy cheeses. Although completely unnecessary, it was the most thoughtful and personal gift we have been given in a long time (clearly they figured out we love great food).
Day 127 – November 10, 2014: Winter storm = lots of snow and bitterly cold weather! Today outside it reached a high of – 16 Celsius (3 Fahrenheit) with windchill which made it feel like -25 Celsius (-13 Fahrenheit). It’s freaking cold out, and the not happy voice in my head is reminding me that this is just the start of winter. and there are many more months before spring returns. But, I did find my happy moment of the day when I finished shoveling the sidewalk and turned around to see that snow had blown right back over the sidewalk I just cleared – I couldn’t help but laugh and roll my eyes as I walked back into my warm temperature controlled house.
Day 128 – November 11, 2014: Today’s happy moment was watching my husband and a friend butcher a deer that they got on Monday. I do not love the idea of killing Bambi and could never do it myself, but I absolutely support the concept of hunting so long as the entire animal is used. Here’s to another year of enjoying local venison.
Wishing everyone splendid happy moments!
