In the days before chemo, Lucy, Bayla and I would occasionally treat ourselves to hot drinks and a chat or bit of reading at a coffee shop during our walk to school. It was definitely a treat but I would never have called it thrilling.
Well, things change and today, exactly one month into my chemo-induced cocooning, we risked two blocks of main street germs and made a stop at Starbucks.
With cash in hand and carefully concentrating on our complex order, Lucy and Bayla headed inside. I waited and watched excitedly out back.
My lovelies emerged triumphant with steaming sweetness.
Not an earth-shattering adventure for the average Canadian family but for us, these days, the mundane is marvelous.
