This week was a busy one in the Drapes household, finishing with an interview for an English teaching position! I will keep you updated with any news on this front. And now it’s time for the top 5 things I’m most thankful for from this past week, as always, I LOVE your comments below!
1)Surprise Package from our Friends!- Some of my friends from school sent us a care package with a sweet note, picture and cookies! Totally made my day 🙂 Josh and I sat on the couch after the work day and had some cookies, just what we needed after this week of early mornings and late nights! I talked to Dad today (see below) and he said that one of the best things in this life is to surround yourself with good friends. The couple that sent us this package immediately came to mind. Do you have friends like this?
2)Lunches with my Hubby- Since Josh and I have both been on base throughout the week since I started my new job, it has been such a wonderful mid-day break to meet at a little park by the clinic and have lunch. I’m constantly reminded how fun and unpredictable this guy is!
3)Taking with my Family- This week I got to have a good long chat with my Mom and Dad. Something about that makes me feel right at peace and refreshed for the week. Cannot overstate how thankful I am for these guys!
4)New Running Spot- One of the Doctors at the clinic recommended I check out Lake Tama. After Wednesday Bible study I decided to go for a longer run, so I headed out to find this trail. Once I reached the lake, the path was beautiful and covered with trees – and welcome shade after the hot day! I got lost no less than two significant times …. which lead to me running through a temple and grave yard the first time….. and backtracking my steps of over a mile the second time… but I’m still alive! I feel fairly confident that the next time we head up there will be more strait forward. One thing I’ve learned is that you are a stranger to a place but once – after that, there is no where to go but up!
5)Best Mint Brownie Ice Cream- I made this ice cream on Sunday night and oooooh man is it good! It’s creamy and refreshing, with homemade paleo brownie bites and some surprising ingredients! I will post the recipe as soon as we can take some glamour shots of it! Ha ha!
How has your week been? What are you looking forward to this weekend?
