Some hump day bites and bites to get you through the week::
:: I woke up one morning, was walking up the stairs and saw this at the front door. I burst into laughter. The kind of laughter where snorting occurs, where tears are running down your face, and that has the world turning wondering what's going on. Although I was still half asleep I couldn't help but notice the array of foot wear that was at our front door- clearly Canada hasn't figured out which season we are in! Clogs for Fall, Ugs for Winter, Rain boots for Spring and flip flops for Summer- what a sight! Today I started wearing the flip flops but ended the day wearing Rain boots.
:: Although last week we had snow, this week we have ice cream trucks! I am amazed at how many people come dashing out of there homes flagging down the driver. I came running out with my camera. The idea is brilliant- who wouldn't want ice cream delivered right to there front door...however the idea is also CREEPY- driver in truck, luring children with the classic 'ice cream truck music'. I dont know...sometime before I head back to London I too will run out with my camera in one hand, but a $20 bill in the other (front door ice cream service is expense ya know)
:: Monday was also a spa day with the girls. While my sister is away on vacation, I spent a day with the girls and we pampered ourselves silly. We gave ourselves manicures, pedicures and facials, and made ourselves feel fabulous! It's always fun to pretend your in a high class spa living the dream.
:: Each Summer I am so blessed to have jobs that are near and dear to my heart. Where I wake up each morning excited for what the day is going to bring. Where I work with people who will change my life and bring out the best in me. Throughout High school I worked for the SALT (Student Adventure Leadership Team) and was a day camp counsellor to children within the community. I worked with fabulous campers and counsellors and spent the days singing, dancing, playing games and doing arts and crafts. My leadership abilities grew and my skills and tactics when working with numerous children grew tremendously. When working at Canadian Tire I was part of a team, part of community working towards a common goal. Communication skills were key, problem solving was important and throughout my 3 years at CT, I went to work feeling like I belonged to a family. Last Summer I was a child care provider to Alex- my little guy who opened my heart to the world of new possibilities. I learned how to really love and be carefree, I learned how appreciate the small things, and really celebrate life. With all of theses jobs I have learned, grown and discovered. I have had experiences that have shaped and mould me into the person that I am today. My job for Summer 2011 will be another to add to the list. This Summer I am a East Coast Site Staff for The Go Project. I will be working with a team, and groups of youth participating in mission and service in Halifax and St. John's. I know this experience will open more doors and provide experiences I never thought would be possible. Less than 55 days and I'll be off! I can't wait!
:: I'm officially done third year University!! Wait- I have 3, 150-word online postings to do tonight and I'll be done! I can't even believe that. The 'grown up' world is closer than ever.
Happy Hump Day!
