My Thanksgiving weekend started a week earlier with the arrival of Mitch, my son from Calgary. The 'Call Your Mom' son. He came for a week visit & was so busy with making things good for me. He started the day after his arrival & never stopped till Thanksgiving!
He also surprised me at the Moncton Airport with a gift for my birthday/Christmas...a Pandora bracelet with three charms! the mother charm, the Canadian Maple leaf ( very near & dear to my heart, Canada. When I raced in the USA with NMRA, I was known as 'The Maple Leaf Lady' as my fire suit was white with a large red maple leaf appliqued on the front & my Mustang race car was also white with a large red maple leaf on the hood.) the third charm was St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, I was there a few years ago. Wow Mitchell surely caught me by surprise, I never thought I'd have such a beautiful bracelet! He also told me that it was to be from him as I'm so hard to buy for & told all his siblings that they were NOT to buy me any charms. I'm one that is hard to buy for & he knows he's good for years to come with so many choices of charms to choose from.
Mitchell, you never stop surprising me!
Well here begins the shed project...
My ribs were still hurting a week & a half later so when I had Nick in the hospital, I tended to myself & had x-ray's done to find out that I had fractured my ribs & my iron count was no longer low but too high! I hadn't taken any iron pills in months. Good thing I had asked for that blood test or I would have thought it best to keep my iron up while I healed my ribs.
So with Nick & I both out of commission with helping with the shed, Bill & Mitch went to work.
I had a very thankful, lovely Thanksgiving at the new cottage. It hasn't even been a year since the purchase of this cottage was done & so much has been done inside & out!
I hope everyone of you too had a Thanksgiving that makes you smile when you think of 2013's Thanksgiving.
It's wonderful the way life just keeps evolving for our family, never a dull moment that's for sure!
