The Week That Was… October 25th – 31st, 2015.

This post’s outΒ easilyΒ a week later than I wanted it to be, its author on the tail end of a week relentless with its to-do list. But with Halloween and my son’s second birthday party both in the past, I can put a little more time back into writing and the tale of how I finished October with a new phone in my pocket, eyes open to anΒ entirely new world of deliciousness, and all other sorts of random in the life and times of Casey Palmer!


Before I start, this post is indirectly brought to you by Google Photos, because without a visual history of what I’ve been up to, I’d haveΒ no clue of what wentΒ down every week.

I finished October with my family game onΒ fleek, spending most of my time either at the 9-5 getting things done or at home with my wife and son, the little joys that pop up in the days. How cute Little Man looks when he’s done his breakfast in the morning and wants to fake a nap with his parents. Or hitting up a Halloween party for the neighbourhood toddlers, watching at least a dozen 2-year olds run around as their parents sat watch at the edges of a plush, carpeted basement (Pro Tip: if you’re going to a potluck, be the one who brings the beer!) I used a SportChek credit to keep my underwear gear on point with the Saxx Underwear Company’s Platinum line; we made our preparations to celebrate the Little Man’s second birthday… even when I wasn’t living it up as part of the #BloggerLife, I feel blessed that life had plenty in store to keep me satisfied, always reminding me there’s more to life than the mischief I get into online.

But if you think the #BloggerLife took a week off,Β trust me β€” you don’t know CaseP; there was stillΒ plenty afoot in the week leading up to Halloween β€” let me tell you a bit about it!

Back from a weekend on Arran Lake, I’m catching up with the digital life I put on hold for a few days to soak in moments like this:

Arran Lake β€” Sunset

But now that this urbanite’s back where he belongs, I’ve unpacked the bags, finished the chores we didn’t get to on the way out and I’m finally getting to the pile of notes and ideas that’reΒ supposedly what you’ll see on my blog for the rest of 2014!

One thing you definitely learn with a workload as big as mine is the Art of Prioritization β€” some things are simply moreΒ urgent than others, like when you’ve got baked goods in your fridge waiting to sate the sweet tooth of one lucky winner!
