It’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends.
Book Club One of my daughters started a book club and invited me to participate. I’ve really enjoyed interacting with my daughter and her friends as we continue this fun and challenging exercise.
Birthday Yesterday was my 60th birthday. It’s always extra special having a birthday at the beginning of July. When I was a kid we would enjoy 4th of July celebrations near my birthday, including one memorable year when we all crowded into my grandparent’s bathroom while a tornado churned over us.
Now that I am also a Canadian, I get to celebrate Canada Day on July 1st which is also my oldest grandchild’s birthday. I am very blessed to be a part of two such wonderful heritages.
Friends and Photography Last weekend we attended a conference about an eight hour drive from us in Saskatchewan. It was a blessing to reconnect with others in ministry, some of whom we have known for over 20 years. I also got to practice some more of my landscape photography, though on the fly as we headed home since there was no time to stop and set up a shot. In spite of that, I think I got some memorable pictures.
Camera My husband blessed me with a new camera for my birthday. He is so thoughtful and generous and knows how much I enjoy taking landscape pictures. Such a blessing!
Family and Gluten free food My niece is up visiting my middle daughter and we have been able to enjoy doing some special things together. We visited the Muttart Conservatory and had a family birthday cook out yesterday. Today we visited my favorite Beaumont restaurant, the Crepe & Shake Café. They are always super careful to take care of my gluten-free needs, and their food is local sourced and delicious.
