I think I earned it...

A good night's sleep, that is:). Today was probably the busiest day we'll have this month. It was the big grocery day, which is always epic! Plus there were library books to return, thrift shop donations to drop off, a gas tank that needed filling(for an amazingly low price of $70). Although it's nice to pay less at the pump, it's not really a good thing for our province's economy. We're thankful that Scott has a good amount of carpentry work lined up and pray that things will pick up in the oil fields so that they can get back to work.

After the groceries were put away, we sat down to a well earned lunch, but then that meant more dishes:). A bit of a nap was a blessing! Thankfully half of the laundry was already washed, which meant we could move on to cleaning up the house after a busy weekend...

Before we knew it, it was time to start dinner prep. Homemade corn dogs are fast and there never seem to be any leftovers. Thank you Uncle Preston for loaning us your corndog cooker thing! Oh, wait, they want dessert too. Thankfully it was easy to whip up a batch of oatmeal cookies with pecans and white chocolate. I'm thankful there are some of those leftover because they are fantastic! Thank you Pinterest for the recipe!

Then it was time to give Scott and the boys a long overdue haircut. Sadly, Samuel was very upset about his. So, after the boys had a bath, it was off to bed for this little man. Maybe I should have had Elyssia bring out the camera. He usually has lots of smiles whenever he sees it pointed his way:). Maybe next time...

It's shortly after 9pm now. The goats are milked, the dishes are washed, the clean laundry is folded and this mama is heading to bed. Hope all our friends and family have a wonderful week!
