I’m thankful for - 20

Oh my goodness gracious what a weekend I had. It had to have been the busiest weekend I’ve had in a very very long time. I have a teeny bit of resentment I have to work today instead of sleep and do nothing. How dare they not accommodate me!

Saturday was the Swedish Festival in my little town and I actually walked over to see the parade. Its pretty bad that in all the time I’ve been here, I’ve never seen it…and its only 1 block away. I would always peer out my blinds to see the floats set up in front of my apt as I sipped my coffee looking like a wreck.

But this year, I made my way over there and watched 5 too many fire trucks go by, and 5 too many John Deer tractors roll by, not to mention the tractor pulling the tractor, which was the hi-lite for me. {not really}

I was most bothered by the fact they didn’t throw candy. What kind of parade doesn’t throw candy? One girl brought me and a little girl next to me, a piece and I offered the girl mine and she said, no. Clearly she was taught well, but then I must have freaked her out cause she never returned. sorry little girl..I’m not a creeper, promise.

Then there was the wedding, that took up the majority of my weekend, which I’ll tell all about when my brain has returned. The heat melted it away.

So this very week, I’m thankful for:

- not working in prison anymore. I ran into a Sgt. friend at the festival who told me nothing but horrible things that have been going on, and it truly made me so thankful God got me out when He did. I’m so blessed to be out of the prison system.
- finally checking ‘seeing the parade’ off my list of things to do.
- getting to shoot what had to have been the most laid back relaxed bride and groom ever. The bride made Mac & Cheese for lunch 1 1/2 hours before the ceremony, nothing fazed her.
even when I *without thinking* showed her a picture of them looking through the door that separated them before the wedding…when they clearly didn’t want to see each other. I still feel horrible for doing that!!
- finally finally finally getting my photo album that I worked on for 10 months of our Europe Trip. The website, I have to say is the worst website I’ve ever used and will never use again, so to finally have my book in my home is the happiest most relieving moment to date.

- getting my favorite blossoms picture on canvas. All I do is stare at it.

- not starting in the new office until Wednesday. I don’t know how the firing went, so I’m relieved I don’t have to work in that office for the first 2 days after, in case anything goes down…is that bad??!

How was your weekend? Is it blazing hot where you are, right now?

Pin It Now!

Winter has arrived in Pretoria so I hauled out the jersey and stayed under the covers with my fur babies and books...
