Nomination for cutest giftbag ever! And even better than it's adorableness, it's one of those intentionally reuseable bags so it's not only Cutiecute, it's practical and thereby a winner for me on all levels. YAYAYAY!!! And to make it even more appealing, this bag held my belated birthday presents from the Minocks! Yes this was a Minock Weekend! Woooohoooo!
We headed up to Minockland Sunday. It was a beautiful day, not a raincloud in sight and the traffic wasn't bad at all so the drive up was pretty smooth and easy. Tim and I talked about everything under the sun and then a few things under the moon to entertain ourselves on the way and help the time pass quickly. We were excited to see our old friends. AND excited to see what they've done with your new home!
If I remember correctly, their home was finished shortly before Christmas last year. It was a super long wait for them. Made even longer by the Pandemic and all of it's inherent issues. Then too, as I'm sure you know, if you've ever purchased a brand newly built home, there are always a thousand things that need to be done once you've moved in to make it feel like yours. They have accomplished so much in the past...however many months! The gardens were lovely. Not finished but beautifully begun. Well thought out, beautifully composed and a little whimsical which is always a delight. With lots of fabulous plans for the future. They've done a lot on the inside too decorating with charm and class and a personality that is wonderfully and uniquely, perfectly them.
We talked, we laughed, we talked some more. We had a wonderful meal and toured their new neighborhood. We learned about their new favourite resturants (One of which is a food truck!) and fired cross bows and caught up on everything under the sun. And then we talked and laughed some more. In fact, we were talking right up until the moment that we pulled out of the driveway! It was a wonderful day! As all Minock days are.
Oh and the contents (plural!!) of my awesome gift bag? Well, some of that will most likely be revealed in some future blogposts. One thing in particular involves an awesome art project for me that will definitely have need of some thought and planning. Tim described it as requiring adult supervision. HAH! BUT I am excited and looking forward to it!!!! Don't worry, you will know when it happens.
Meanwhile today is Monday and so the superfun day is over and it's back to real life. Poo. Real life is highly over rated.
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
