: Monday Monday Monday :

What a great weekend -- sorry I haven't been around these parts explanation is I had a surprise visit from my SIL from the Island on Thursday night. She was here to stay until Saturday so we squeezed everything we could out of the time we had together.My girlfriend had planned a night out at the movies to watch "The Vow" so I went to zumba on Thursday for 5.30pm so I could make it to the movie by 7.20pm -- when I walked into the theater to meet my friend who had printed my ticket off for me {thanks to C for the free ticket!} she was her normal self and said come this way, I've been waiting..so we walk towards the entrance to the theater and out from the arcade walks Christy. I stop, pause and think "no, it's not my birthday" and then I cried. I miss having Christy here in the lower mainland to visit with and do everyday with so seeing her just reminded me that if she were here {or I were there} we would be able to do things like girls movie night as a normal event...not just surprise visits or special occasions!

It couldn't have been more perfect, the boys had a pro-D day on Friday and I didn't have any plans except to do laundry and get a few invites out...so I postponed doing the laundry and fit in writing out the invites over tea with my SIL. Sounds like a fair trade to me!

We had a few birthday parties for Jacob to attend so his social calendar was full&fun, plus an all day play date with cousins Denay & Paisley that ended in tears cause they didn't want them to go - so sweet!

Friday night the Mr. was out with friends celebrating an upcoming wedding so I was at home watching girlie shows while he partied it up ;)

Saturday was more of the same, another birthday party working on projects around the house etc. Twas a great day. That was until I broke my toe getting out of the hot tub. We have a rod iron umbrella stand beside our hot tub and upon getting out of the hot tub I jammed my middle toe {next to my big toe} into the thing that holds the pole...didn't think I had done much damage until I got into the house and noticed the nail was completely pushed back and the knuckle was bent in the wrong direction. To say the least I was kinda out of commission for the remainder of the weekend!

At least I got to catch up on one of the most amazing funerals I've ever whitnessed - get it "Whit"nessed! Bottom line people, we are mortal - God is eternal. Make it right with Him; you'll be glad you did! On Sunday afternoon I took a break from my position on the couch to go to the insurance agents office with Mr.L so we could sell our beloved van. We were totally shocked to have sold it yesterday...we hadn't had any response from our Craigslist ad except one lady and boom, I guess that's all it takes, so they showed up with cash in hand ready to take it away. We have been so blessed by that van and pray that it's a super great vehicle for their family too.

After being delayed from selling the van my Mom came to pick up the boys for a sleep over and Mr. L & I headed out to Supper Club. It's a great night of fellowship and food...seriously can't get any better except it's all adult conversation - hello, what a treat! Thanks C&T for hosting this month!

Last week I missed doing my installment of "52 weeks of Blessing" -- and I don't have any photos to show of the "gift" but we did do it. We gave a blessing of money to someone who could use it more than us. We don't have excess cash just lying around, so this of course is going to cause some discomfort for us financially until next pay day, but really it's all about blessing someone and knowing that He will continue to provide for us.
Oh, and in my last post I told you about our breakfast muffins, they are easy-peasy to make. You take one box of Oat Bran muffins, cut up one peeled apple, 1 cup raisins or nuts {or both} and add it to the original directions to make the muffins {add one cup water..they are stupid easy!}, add a sprinkling of brown sugar on top and that's it!

I buy these muffin mixes on sale for aprox $1.50 and keep them on hand just to switch up the breakfast routine. Easy, healthy and cheap - my kinda breakfast!
That's it for me today, I'm going to hobble over to the kitchen pop dinner in the oven, then hobble over to the dryer and pull out a load of laundry, re-load the dryer then head to the couch --- good night all and Happy Monday!
