As I think I’ve mentioned before, during the winter months it is a lot quieter here on the farm. Even though there is still a lot of work to do, the phones are quieter. Because of this my brother takes Fridays off and I take Mondays. So far, it has been heavenly being able to sleep in on Monday and then I have designated doing something wedding related while I am off as well.
Yesterday was no different. Luckily, yesterday morning my day started out with a hair cut (trim) at my hairdresser and friend, Lisa’s. The appointment after me was Jilly, who is also off on Mondays. It was great spending the morning with the ladies catching about the weekend.
I had great intentions on writing my weekend recap yesterday but girl gab took over that but I still wanted to do one this morning.
I like to pretend Friday didn’t happen. It was one of those days where it seems everything goes wrong and some things did go REALLY wrong.
Saturday morning I visited with Dad who was over to work on my new office and then headed to a shower for Amanda, the soon to be bride!
It was fun watching Amanda open her presents and the food…omg, the food! What a spread there was! The ladies did a great job hosting such a wonderful shower!
It started to snow like crazy and I headed home instead of heading to Ladysmith to visit Bekk because the roads were too snow covered.
Sunday morning, Ryan and I were up BEFORE the birds and on the road at 3 AM! I mentioned before, here, that we had this awesome gift for the groomsmen but that they didn’t allow international shipping. The closest location was 6 hours away in New York state. So, Ryan and I took a road trip.
It was my first time crossing the border near Ottawa and I never realized how close it was! Such an easy drive! Unfortunately, the simple 6 hour drive there took 8 because of snow and traffic. A stop at the Olive Garden (Canada totally needs one!) for supper and another 7 hours to drive home our mission was complete and the groomsmen gifts are now done!
I can’t wait to show you all what it is someday soon and I hope the guys all like it too!
How was your weekend?
