How the heck is it Friday?! Looking back on our week it has been crazy.
Monday was pretty quiet, Avery and I did a 7km run after supper -she fell asleep around 3km after she took this photo:
Oh and early morning deck cuddles to start our week:
Tuesday night around 7pm we were meeting with some landscapers in our kitchen (which is all windows around us) and I had my back to the window when everyone else was like “oh crap!”. I turned around to barely see anything outside and what looked to be a massive dust storm and winds. The wind took a gazebo from the house across the alley and crumpled it. We all watched out the window while I debated going into the basement. I fratically tried to check for tornado warnings but had no data of wifi. This lasted 5-10 minutes before it kind of calmed down.
Sadly, our poor city was badly damaged. We are known for the beautiful parks, trails and trees we have and there are huge losses. 100 year old trees ripped up by their roots onto houses, cars, power lines, roads and more. Sheds, buildings and roofs destroyed by the wind and debris. You can see photos here. We were lucky and only lost one small piece of siding on our house and our rental house was fine too. And the good news? There was no serious injuries from the storm!
It was a beautiful day beforehand though!
Oh and I tried out a new virtual reality game at a local theatre – job perks 😉
Wednesday I took off the afternoon, between no computer at work (it was being fixed), and a teething one year old I decided to work at home and have a quiet afternoon. We took a walk to the park too.
Later we went to our neighbour’s as they were hosting supper. By the time we got home I was so tired all I could think of doing was sleeping!
Yesterday we did not do much, my Grandma came for supper and then we had a quiet evening which is what I needed.

I am pretty darn excited for this weekend – tomorrow I am heading south to see some of my favourite blogging friends and kids/babies for a much overdue visit and then tomorrow evening going to a local market here with some of my favourite vendors! Sunday we will probably go exploring as a family and enjoy the sun!
