This Week's Artifacts

You know how archaeologists dig up artifacts from ancient civilizations and piece together all the clues to form an image of how they lived their lives?  Well, the modern day artifacts are phone photos.  My phone currently houses 959 photos and 72 videos.  Here are a few from this past week. Try out your archaeology skills and see if you can piece together what's been happening around here...

Clue #1 Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte -
That would mean I was in the city for a work conference, getting inspired by some really smart people who have all written multiple books on mental health and wellness.  For optimal mental health, I recommend four hours in Chapters book store with a latte in one hand and credit card in the other.  According to my research, that is just as effective as clean eating, exercising, yoga, and meditation combined to flourish in positive mental health!

Clue #2 Snow and Snowmobile Helmets -
The girls are chomping at the bit to get out on their sled. We've got big plans this year that involve a ski-doo, an axe, and the perfect Charlie Brown tree.

Clue # 3 I spy with my little eye, a Movember mustache.  Can you find it?

Clue # 4 Something Borrowed and Something Blue -
The girl's Madame is planning a wedding and she got showered with gifts on the weekend.

Clue #5 Book Shelves are no Longer White -
After a month of trying to get paint to stick to the old melamine shelves, they are finally reassembled and back in an upright position in Lexi's room.

Clue # 6 Splashes of Christmas Everywhere -
The holiday bug has bitten!  Carols are on the piano, parcels are showing up at the door, cards have been ordered, wish lists have been made, lights have been plugged in, holiday movies have begun and the Yuletide fireplace is on the TV...(but I haven't let myself turn it on yet!)

Clue #7 Lots of Snuggles and Selfies -
Because that's just what you do after mom's been gone for three days!
