Random stuff that makes me happy: 1. A new box of pencil crayons 2. The beach 3. Poutine 4. Timmy's 5. Art 6. Johnny Depp movies 7. Cookbooks 8. Photography 9. Scrap supplies
Here is Beverly's Take:
It's All Good
Dad visited in March & October - so good to see him
Jane was here in February & December
Auryn's school concert - his first - I cried! LOL
Auryn's Nativity - he's changed so much this year
Friendship: This has been such a tough year. I didn't appreciate how many good friends I had until the flowers and messages of support came flooding in to help me thru.
This Was Bad
Fire at the store
3 break-ins at the store
