Our Weekend


This weekend was:

:: an early morning meeting with some inspiring women to plan our homeschool coop set to start in January
:: secret crafting at my parents place with Reece, a little holiday gift for his daddy
:: an afternoon run in the rain
:: a quiet dinner by the light of our Advent wreath
:: an evening of mama time...a bath, reading, a little knitting and hot tea, there is always hot tea
:: early breakfast
:: a wonderful day trip to Toronto for the Christmas Market at the Historic Distillery District
:: making my little man's day with a ride on the carousel
:: a little stop at Chapters, just because
:: another quiet dinner, lighting the second candle on our Advent wreath
:: more mama time...another bath, reading, knitting and hot tea

How was your weekend?

    1. Secret crafting was a great success, hopefully Justin likes what we did :)

      Barnes and Noble is great, I spent a lot of time in there when I spent 4 months in the US about 10 years ago.
