Insta-Friday in real life
It's Friday and time for a look back at the week using simple cell phone photos. Follow me on Instagram if you like (@ziajojo).
I think we have had all four seasons of weather in the last week or so. We had snow just last Thursday. Then, last Friday, we had icy rain.
Friday was half price on everything green day at the local Salvation Army thrift store and I practically had the place to myself.
Probably because of the rain. I don't mind a little rain if it means no line-ups.
Here's my girl wearing her half-price Joe Fresh army jacket ($4).
Come Saturday, we had our sushi party with the boys and then paired off so we girls could watch Gilmore girls while the boys played video games or something like that.
On Sunday, I debated whether or not to catch up on my magazines or head into Toronto to visit Bunner's vegan, gluten-free bakery. I decided on the bakery, but the family complained so much I gave up on that idea and stayed home.
My son stayed home for the morning on Wednesday so I could take him to the dentist. It meant I had company for my morning walk with Jolene. I enjoy hearing and seeing the Canada geese this time of year. This goose, above, didn't enjoy Jolene lunging at it so much though.
Yesterday, it was warm. It felt wonderful after months of cold. I played 21 with my son in the park. Not surprisingly, I lost, 6 to 21. And my shoulders hurt today. I really, really need to get out and exercise more.
We are back to rain today, with a lot of wind. There are some shingles on the front lawn which may or may not be from our roof. I'm hoping not, but I'm thinking probably.
The kids are home for a PA Day and we did a lesson on pond life this morning. Even though they go to public school, I'm introducing some fun lessons at home that allow them to direct their own learning and explore aspects of the lesson that interest them. I really want them to develop a love of learning. Our first lesson went very well and I'll be posting about it soon.
I'm looking forward to the weekend. Maybe I'll convince the family to make that visit to Bunner's Bakery.
What are you planning for the weekend?
