Ever have a day where you're just satisfied? That's where I'm at. It's been a couple long days of travel but today, as I'm winding down and getting ready for bed, I'm just satisfied.

Here's a few reasons why:
  • Starting the day by getting up WITHOUT the alarm
  • Starbucks cinnamon dolce latte and whole wheat croissant for breakfast
  • Buying a new, more work-trip appropriate bathing suit that I love...and was super inexpensive!
  • Supper. Seriously. After days of not really stopping or sitting down for a real meal - I even had a day where two meals came from 7-11 -we enjoying a relaxed meal at Milestones. Grilled chicken breast smothered in portobello mushrooms sauteed in basil, garlic and cream, served with a reasonable portion of capellini and seasonal veggies (beans, peppers and onion grilled to perfection...still slightly crunchy). So satisfied.
  • Wandering around outside in gorgeous weather...barely a chill of fall at all!
  • Hanging out in the hotel pool/hot my new bathing suit
  • Watching Bourne Ultimatum in the hotel, crammed into our room (which now smells suspiciously of popcorn, sun chips and decaf coffee) with 12 friends
  • Sliding into a bed that's been made up by someone other than me, knowing that there's potential for nearly 8 hours of sleep and that tomorrow I'll get to hang out with my good friend, Kelly, and meet her little munchkin, Logan.
All in all, it's been a good day. Man, this makes a work day in my world seem pretty makes up for 13 hours of travel time on a bus, pro-D and motion sickness.

We did have a fair today in the beautiful city of kelowna although I'm guessing that most of us would rather just focus on the rest of life...the more satisfying things of the day. It was fairly slow, to say the least. Putting a positive spin on it, we got some pretty good opportunities to visit amongst ourselves and we will pray that those that did come were able to take advantage of some good one on one time, gaining tools and information to make some good decisions about their futures!

Off to Abbotsford tomorrow...and possibly a more detailed "fairs" post to follow.
