3 Things Thursday: Week 73

Yes, I’m still here! (Hangs head in shame). I can’t remember the last time I abandoned my blog for almost two whole weeks. Honestly though, this summer is kicking my butt. This whole work/life/family balance thing is super hard all the time, but this last month has been the worst for me in a long time. My working hours are all over the place, and I am always working on yesterday’s to-do list. 

Well the calendar tells me that there is less than two weeks left until the kids go back to school, and I’m expecting my life to settle into some sort of rhythm when that happens. For now, here are 3 Things that my iPhone tells me happened lately…okanagan

One: Quick Okanagan Getaway
Earlier this month we took a quick two night getaway to the Okanagan. We basically had no holiday this summer and we didn’t want to send the kids back with nothing to write in their journals! We spent two nights in Kelowna, but what we really loved was Skaha beach in Penticton, and the surrounding area of Peachland and Summerland. We will definitely plan to go back next summer and stay for a few more days. 

Two: Delicious by Ruth Reichl
This book is so good! First of all it’s food fiction – the best kind of fiction ever, and second, the author describes food so well it will make your mouth water. I won’t give away the story, but it hit on three things I love; food, nostalgia/history, and love stories. I haven’t read a fiction book in forever, but I took this on our road trip and I couldn’t put it down.

Three: Serious Blog Planning
Even though I haven’t been posting much for the last month, a lot is going on behind the scenes and big changes are coming. Next week I’ll be revamping the entire site and adding some fun new features. I’ve also been working on some content ideas for the fall – hello; pumpkin recipes, Halloween costumes, and oh yeah….Diwali! (I might be a tiny bit excited about my favourite holiday of all time).
