Week of: June 28 through July 4
Today I woke up bright and early so that I could get into the office. It was a beautiful morning as I walked to work. When I got to the office, I stopped at the little snack stand and got me some tea and cakes. I was tired from walking the 15 miles, ya girl cannot drive. I sat on a nearby bench and enjoy the treats before heading into the office. After spending a few hours working I decided to head out. The community had an event and I really wanted to attend. I went home and changed into something more comfortable and headed over to the park. The event was really great. We laughed so hard and got so much information. When it was over, I walked back home and prepared dinner for myself and Mello. Afterward, all I did was relax for the evening.
On Tuesday morning I woke feeling a little sick. I stayed in bed a little longer till I felt better. Once I was feeling better, I got up took a shower, and got ready for work. Once I was already, I headed out to start my day. Better late than never! While out exploring Cedar Creek my arm touched Poison Ivy …. *cries*. After exploring around I went and took a few moments to reflect. Today is a hard day for me so I just needed a private me moment.
Today I got a surprise text message. The Sheriff asked me in for an interview. It went pretty well. I really enjoy anything law and legal so I hope I get the job. After the interview I headed to the zoo for the Dino exhibit. You can read more about that here. Once I was done with the exhibit I went and ate some soup then called it a night. I was not feeling well and thought I would get a good night’s rest.
Today was a quiet day. I had a lazy morning and worked from home. I had a few packages I ordered online arrive. I spent most of my afternoon running errands and getting ready to go camping tomorrow.

Today I got up a little later than usual. I had wanted to get my rest because I knew it was going to be a long night. I was looking forward to camping. Before loading up the car I checked my mail and got a surprise, my application had been accepted at the Sheriff’s office. I did do a little dance; I hope the neighbors didn’t see me. What a great start to the weekend. You can read the blog here.
I got home early from camping. We all had such a great time. I unpacked the car and got everything sorted. I used today to clean the house and do laundry. I was on call at the office so I had a few things here and there I had to do. I eventually got the house and laundry done and clocked out of my shift. I ate dinner and called my mom to get her catch up on things. Then I went down to the pool and enjoyed the sun. At the pool I made a new friend and really enjoyed her company. I look forward to hanging out with her more. That was really my day.
*I forgot to get a photo on this day also*
Today I spent the day in reflection. I do not celebrate the 4th of July as I am Indigenous. Instead, I spent the day mourning the lose of so many children in residential schools. check out my blog about here.
