Friday Finds – 22nd February

Friday Finds

During the week, I find all sorts of random things that I often mean to share then don’t so this post is all that, so here are my Friday Finds.

How crazy is this adventure! Sounds amazing though! It’s the kind of crazy adventure that Chris would want to do! The Crawford’s Hike the Appalachian Trail. The Appalachian Trail is 2,200 miles long running from Springer Mountain in Georgia (this is the Southern Terminus) to Mount Katahdin in Maine (This is the Northern Terminus). Mount Katahdin is also the start point for the IAT which is the extension of the Appalachian Trail into Canada – as far as Newfoundland. (YAY!)

I discovered this week that Republic of Doyle is filmed in St John’s, Newfoundland. I got excited about this and told my friend at knitting group who had originally told me that I’d probably like it, which then launched into how Gander grew overnight (Operation Yellow Ribbon, Come From Away). Come From Away opened in London this week so there’s lots of new articles popping up about it like this one from BBC News.

This week I guest posted over on Reema’s blog, It’s called Aumsome and you can find my post here. I was writing all about the joy of penpals.

{AD – Gifted} Bedtime stories is one of my favourite times of the day, we get to shut the rest of the world out and have a snuggle. We’ve got a variety of stories – and some nights Chris and /or I are just audience members to Jaxon’s reading skills – he’s getting so good! While at #SBSEvent2019 last week, I crossed paths with Allan who created My Strawberry Monkey, when I said I had Jaxon he offered to send us a copy of one of the My Strawberry Monkey books. It arrived today and hopefully will be read at bedtime! Yay! (Hopefully, I’m using the right disclosure! We were sent the book as a gift and I’m sharing on Social Media to show my gratitude and my love of the book).
