This post doesn't really have a point. It's just a chance to share some pictures, a piece of news, and keep my mom from calling me to find out if we're okay (Just kidding Mom! I love that you read every day.)
Last week Sam was sick for a few days. It was nothing major -- he just threw up one day and had a slight fever the next. However, that meant we didn't make it to many swimming and tennis lessons last week. Okay, we made it to one.
By Friday I was going a little insane so I decided to celebrate the First Day Of August by making a summer wreath. Okay, I was more than a little late to the party but, having already found the idea on Pinterest, and bought the supplies a few weeks ago, I ended up with this. It's fun, colourful, and festive -- all things I think a summer wreath should be! And best of all it cost less than $10. That's a win in my book.
Also, last week I started a new job. Major exciting times, I tell you! To make a long story short, I like to price match from our weekly flyers, but ever since we've moved to Ontario, we've ended up on routes where the flyers don't get delivered consistently. So I ended up taking over the route for our house. Since I always wanted to deliver newspapers as a kid, which my parents thought was impractical since we lived in the country, I feel like this is a chance for my childhood dream to come true. So not only do I get to save money (because we'll get our flyers every week), but I also get paid to do it.
Thus far I have only done it three times and it is quite the spectacle. Sam LOVES helping and walks along yelling, "Flyer delivery! Flyer delivery!" which I'm sure isn't at all annoying. Rachel has managed to skin her knee once and screamed as though the world was ending, which I'm sure wasn't at all annoying. And I'm making about $3 an hour so I'm really raking in the cash. World tour, here I come.
On Saturday Janice and her mom took me and another friend out for High Tea. I already posted a picture of my scone with cream and jam in my Project 364 post on Sunday, but here are a few more pictures. The sandwiches were just as amazing as the scone and I was thrilled to be able to take home some leftovers to eat on Sunday.
And the four of us talked about having tea together more often, hosting it ourselves. So if you don't hear from me, I will likely be scouring
the Internet Pinterest (who am I kidding???) for beautiful ways to host tea or delicious recipes to try out. Sounds like a good time to me!
Since Rachel was sick on Monday, and yesterday rained, we haven't had much pool time this week either. I'm hoping we'll make it today so I should go eat some breakfast. Or do dishes. Or start packing for the beach. We leave on Sunday for a week and I can't wait!
Happy Wednesday friends!
