TGIF v.46

A high of the week was having the sun come out and being able to see blue skies! I know that the forest fires are still running rampant throughout the Interior, but having a break from the smoke has been amazing. We’ve been able to enjoy the yard and walks once again, and I’m so grateful!

We/Kyle has also started doing some demolition work on our back deck; we’ve decided to expand it by a couple of feet to make it more “entertaining friendly.” The stairs needed to be replaced anyway, so we figured we may as well replace the whole thing. It probably won’t be done until mid-September, but hopefully we get some bonus sunny days come the fall so we can enjoy it a little.

A low of the week was having to make some tough decisions in regards to Daphne’s health. In a nutshell, she’s old. (She’ll be 13 at the end of October.) We’ve put her on anti-inflammatories to try and help her aches and pains, but it’s only buying me time to come to terms with some tough decisions more than anything.

An internet find I loved was the Carpool Karaoke series on Apple Music. So far I’ve only been able to watch snippets here and there because I’m not a subscriber, but my mom is, so she may very well find me camped out on her couch one day binge-watching all the episodes!

The best money I spent was no money – my mom graciously gave us two zucchinis, green beans and cucumbers out of her garden, plus our grape tomato plants are out of control and providing us with tons of fruit! I love being able to eat vegetables (and fruit, I guess) right from our own gardens!

My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was being able to take them outside. Nothing drives a woman more crazy than children who are also going crazy!

A song that has been stuck in my head is allllllll the kids’ songs. Specifically anything from Moana, Sing, and Trolls. Someone hold me.

My meals of the week were barbequed chicken & corn on the cob, heart attack mac & cheese, carne asadas, leftover spaghetti casserole. Nothing fancy!

My plans for the weekend are birthday parties!

I cannot believe how fast summer is going by – How was your week?

  1. Ugh, I hear you on the tough health stuff with old dogs. Dutch is the same way. Generally, he’s happy and runs around and eats well and all that. But at night, he whimpers and I just feel so bad for him. He’s also on meds to help his aches and pains, but sometimes I worry about his quality of life. It’s a tough line to walk! Hugs. <3


  2. Yay for the smoke finally clearing! I bet getting outside after such a long stretch of smokey days was amazing. Sorry to hear about Daphne :( That would be such a hard decision to face. I do not blame you one bit for taking your time.
