Busy Week Leading Into a Busy Weekend! Phew!

Happy Monday everyone! Last week flew by in a flurry of activity. It all revolved around the arrival of the new flock of my brothers layer hens! 9000 in total….

Yes, I said 9000! That’s alot of birds!

But they are all in their new home laying away!

Friday was finally here and over before I knew it! I was SO looking forward to book club on Friday night! I had missed the last discussion and the book on the table to discuss that night was one I couldn’t get out of my mind!

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult was the book of discussion for Friday evening. It is the story of a high schooler named Peter who after years of bullying, goes into his high school and opens fire killing 10 and injuring many more. You read Josie and Peter’s stories and get an inside look at the torture that Peter faced. I had a very difficult time figuring out which side I was on. At one point in the book I hated Peter for the school shooting and then the next chapter I sympathized with him.

It was an AWESOME discussion on Friday night lasting about three straight hours! It was so great to reflect on the book and get other people’s opinions!

This weekend was the start of hunting season so Ryan was off to try to get a big buck on Saturday! I went and grabbed some groceries, stopped in at Ryan’s parents and then worked on some stuff around home!

That evening we left for Shawville to enjoy supper and then watch my brother in Joseph And The Technicolor Dreamcoat. It was an AMAZING show and the highlight had to have been when a friend, Phil, came of as pharaoh and then did an Elvis impersonation! It was epic!

Sunday morning Ryan and I helped set up for the church’s harvest supper and then I went to church and Ryan went to hockey.

As soon as we were both home in the early afternoon we headed across the ferry to celebrate my birthday, again! For my birthday Ryan got me hockey tickets and Sunday was game night!

We started the afternoon off by running some errands and doing some shopping! We then enjoyed an AMAZING (calorie free of course….) supper at Wild Wings!

Having some fun while shopping!

Finally, it was game time!! Sens versus Leafs! I was decked out in my white and blue and pumped for the game to start! We had great seats!

Unfortunately, the Sens won, 3-2 and it was a well deserved win! The Leafs looked slow last night! At least it was a close game which made it interesting! What made it even more interesting was the very drunk leaf fan behind me falling on me and pushing me into the next row after the 2nd goal! Geesh! Thank goodness for Ryan and the guy in the row ahead of us catching me!

It was a great LAST WEEKEND IN OCTOBER (holy moly!)! We got to see a great small town musical and celebrate my birthday with a hockey game!
