Project Life: Week 02/05-08/05

NapTime MomTog Project 365

Thanks for stopping by again!! It was a busy but awesome week. The highlight for me, our night away to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. What a treat!!

MONDAY: Caide's room has been in desperate need of a make-over for quite some time. Today we took the plunge, went shopping in the morning, and set up the room after that. He asked that I keep the door closed and then he could see it when we were finished. He is over the moon with his new "grown-up" room, and that makes me one happy Mom :)

TUESDAY: Caide had hockey trials for the Umzinyathi Team this afternoon, and it was a nerve-racking up and down afternoon. After playing his heart out 2 teams were chosen and the rest set to one side to practise. We were both so disappointed that he had not made it. At the end of the afternoon they called all the boys together, and it turned out he had been picked for the u12 team. What relief!!

WEDNESDAY: Today I had a little assistant with me while I pruned our Johannesburg Gold bushes. You don't get cuter assistants than this, and he did a great job in helping his Mom. Love those cute little hands!

THURSDAY: Caide had another busy afternoon with a tournament at the Oval. They played two games, drawing one and losing this one 1-0. I was able to capture loads of action shots so look forward to doing a scrapbook page with those!

FRIDAY: I was in 7th heaven when we arrived at our chalet at the Lodge this afternoon. It really is such a glorious spot, and I felt like a queen. In the evening we went out to supper and had a delicious meal. I am so blessed, and this treat, given to me by my hubby has made my year!!

SATURDAY: We sat and ate our breakfast on the patio this morning.It was so special to sit quietly, just the two of us and enjoy our food and stunning view. I have enjoyed every single second of this wonderful night away. Thanks so much my sweet husband. The last 13 years spent as your wife have been the happiest of my life!!!

SUNDAY: Today would have to rate as one of my nicest Mother's Days so far. In the morning I got tea in bed with these lovely homemade cards. Each boy wrote such lovely words in their cards, which just made my heart so happy. Ray made me a delicious breakfast and for lunch we went to Debbie's house. The rest of the day was spent relaxing. It really was a most wonderful weekend. I am truly blessed!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, and for those that leave comments, "thank-you", it means so much to me!!

I love looking at all your photos. The hockey photos are really interesting. Your sticks look a little different than the sticks that we have here and you play on the grass rather than the ice. Very neat to see! Glad you had a lovely Mother's Day and a nice time away.

Happy Anniversary, so glad you got a night away at a beautiful and quiet spot. The new room looks good and grown-up. Love all the homemade cards you got, those are my favorite too. Have a great week.
