Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Cool finding in the blogging world

I know, most of you probably already know about this, but I thought it was cool (especially since it's hard to come up with blog topics sometimes.) Every Thursday you blog about 13 something. Kinda fun. The addy is included if you want to check it out and get the tags yourself.

Thirteen Things I love about summer

1. No homework, no lunchboxes, no anxiety

2. Relaxed days to spend with the boys.

3. Family holidays (with a now 16 year old, I'm cherishing these times as I know that our time for vacationing with him is soon coming to an end. For now, I cherish the time and that he still wants to vacation with us.)

4.BBQ season (this usually means that the main meal preparer gets a break, but in our case, that's not so. John doesn't know how to cook without burning!)

5. Long summer nights (I didn't realize that these were even longer in Calgary)

6. Spending time at the trailer at Jackson's Point

7. Junior Music Camp!

8. a good thunderstorm (especially at the trailer where we can open all the blinds, turn off the lights and watch a good light show)

9. vivid colours

10. oportunities for great outdoor pictures

11. No time constraints

12. Sleepy mornings

13. Eating outside.

I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!


  1. About long summer nights: that's one thing I miss about Winnipeg. In the summer, the sun didn't set until 10:30 - 11:00 PM.

    The downside: dark winter days. In December, there are only 7-8 hours of daylight. If you worked in an office or building without windows you could drive to work in the dark, work indoors all day and drive home in the dark without ever seeing daylight for the entire month. Pretty weird.

    Family vacations and BBQs, oh yes. :)
