Back at home the afternoon was spent preparing for dinner guests, Justin's family was coming over to celebrate his parents wedding anniversary. All was going really well til I noticed my little mans cheeks getting a little rosy. Then the eyes got a little glassy and then the fever started. By the time our guests arrived we had spent an hour snuggling on the couch, and instead of playing the night away with his cousin, he slept. Despite a feverish little man the evening was a success.
I cleaned up after our guests left, then hopped online for a quick catch up of the days events and to check email. To my surprise there was an email from this lovely lady informing me I had won a spot in her Write Now session starting today! I am just a tad bit excited about this and can't wait to get started. My journal is picked out and my pen is ready. You can imagine sleep was a little hard to come by after such an exciting day, so I snuggled into bed with my feverish little man and counted my blessings.
In the dark hours of Sunday morning Reece sat bolt upright in bed asking if it was morning yet. Technically it was, but 6am on a Sunday morning is just too early, so I told him it was still nighttime and he snuggled up for a few more hours of sleep. We both hopped out of bed shortly after 8am, and he was full of life and ready to take on the world again. Another blessing from this weekend.
Reece spent the morning cleaning and playing with a old metal Tonka crane his granddad brought him Saturday night and then after lunch we headed off to a friends home for a little family play date and dinner.
A very good weekend, that once again has left me feeling blessed and grateful.
How was your weekend?
