September - "Showers of blessings"


I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. What’s left of it anyway. Things have been crazy busy as seems to be the norm for everyone lately. We haven’t got high speed yet, but we have a tech scheduled to come first thing Monday morning! I will be jumping for joy! House renovations are still on the go daily. But major progress has been made.

Here is an overview of what’s been going on in our lives since the beginning of September:

Sept. 2/07 - I recieved the sweetest award from Connie at "Mamma of 2 Sweet Angel Boys"
I was thrilled to recieve such a beautiful and unique award. Thank you SO much Connie!!

“This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you’ve been awarded please pass it on to 7 others who you feel are deserving of this award.”

5. Connie (I don't know if I can send it back to the person who sent it to me, but Connie is definitely deserving!)
7. Margo

Sept. 5/07 The exchange students’ first day of school

"We took this photo at Peggy's Cove. When the Lucci and Anne arrived to NS we enjoyed travelling some of the local sites."

Jacob on the rocks (I guess this one has an ocean view too)

Sept. 6/07 My first piano lesson. I have been loving it! A half an hour just goes by WAY to fast!

Sept. 9/07 My 26th Birthday - Yes, I am oficially a quarter of a century old and now round to thirthy :( Woe is me jk. It was a special day getting together with family. My great grandmother, Viola who is 94 was also at the party. She sure amazes me. It never ceases to amaze me what the human body is capable of. Lucci and Anne made me a special dinner and dessert as their 'gift' to me. It was wonderful and very tasty!

Sept. 11/07 I had my first training session for my new part time job. I go house to house and work whatever hours work for me. Ryan just started too so I am LOVING working with him. We really make an amazing team! We have a meeting every Thursday evening. It doesn't even feel like work to me. Every time I go, I feel like I have known these people my whole life. It's such a great place to be. I feel like I am hanging out with friends.

Sept. 13/07 Yesterday!!!! My nephew Michael was born!

I am just heading out to the hospital to see my bro and SIL again, so I will look forward to commenting on everyone’s blog’s on MONDAY when we have high speed!!!!! Hooray for technology!

AWW gee thank you for the lovely gesture. I'm touched. But unfortunately I can't seem to figure out how to add that label on my blog. I've been avoiding doing that cause I honestly don't know how to move it unto my blog. HEEEELLLP ME!!
