Another week. Another Slate. Hope you enjoy!
This week was a bit crazy with Ally missing a whole week of school because of a nasty virus that left her on the couch sleeping most of the day, barely eating or drinking anything. For the first few days she had a super high fever, which tapered off to manageable but still high enough to make her miserable. She really only started eating again yesterday… Between hubby and I switching days at work, we managed and made it through the week somehow.
Day 243: Monday. One of the worst days for her. Her fever was at 104 late in the afternoon and she was barely moving. So lethargic. Worried doesn’t begin to explain how I felt.
Day 245: Wednesday. On our walk Wednesday afternoon things got a little weird. There were so many birds. Flying back and forth over the lake and back to the trees. I’d like to say they realized the afternoon storm was on the way but it was clear out and we never got one that evening.
Day 246: Thursday. I love that my co-worker and friend shares my love for tea, specifically Rooibus tea. Ever since her recent trip to South Africa, she is into it as much as I am. So now we share different types and flavors whenever we try something new. She ordered this chocolate flavored Rooibus and it’s so very good and delicious. Perfect for an afternoon treat!
Day 247: Friday. What’s better than flowers? It’s flowers that arrive as a surprise and are given just because. Love this bouquet hubby picked out for me and had delivered to the house on Friday. I was home with all three kids… They were all in various stages of illness and I just couldn’t take it anymore and “gave” them all a day off. I really hope that a long weekend of rest will do everyone good.
Day 248: Saturday. It’s that time of year again. Pop-up Halloween stores are popping up on every corner and my girls will drag me into each and every one of them to find the perfect Halloween costume. Only Ashley would pose with this ghoulish creature. Ally was having none of it.
Day 249: Sunday. I was the first one up this morning and I decided to enjoy the quiet sitting by the pool and sipping my coffee in peace. It was glorious. Once Ally was up, we took a dip in the pool before heading out to lunch and after to a friend’s house for a little Labor Day BBQ. It was a pretty perfect day…
