Oh, hi there.
Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn't, but I have been around here much this week. I have three excuses for you. I think they're good ones.
1. Blogger was down for some reason. But that only accounts for one day.
2. I had a job interview to prepare for. It was my first interview ever that wasn't for a job serving beer or fancy dinners. But that's for another post.
3. Oh, and I'm moving permanently back to Canada after three years of going back and forth between two countries. In six days.
A lot has happened this week in the meantime. There was a first birthday, anxiety about the job interview, a trip to the zoo, baking these incredible cookies for a farewell lunch with a good friend (my farewell!), and the usual chasing after my children. I'll be back with some of these details soon. Right now I'm off to do some packing. A lot of packing.
I'll leave you with my favourite photo of the week. At the zoo on Wednesday Alyce wore her favourite purple hat, a recent gift from her Nana. I guess the urge was just to powerful, because the second my back was turned, Alyce thew her purple hat over the fence into to giraffe enclosure. Of course she did.
