Weekend Recap

Weekend is almost over again. For most people doing exciting stuff all the time, it would have been boring. For me, at least Sunday was pretty awesome.

 I worked late, like almost every day of the months so far; we were 3 out of 11 people in the office. We had leftovers of Richard's awesome tofu lasagna for dinner. I was briefed that Lily would have her first ever sleep-over next week. How exciting!! Richard and I had a movie night, watching "The Woman In Black" with Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe. Highly recommend the movie! I finally folded the three or so loads of laundry I had lying around and read a little before bed.

I did some sleeping in, with some interruptions of making a quick breakfast for the girls and changing Violet from her night-time diaper to her undies. The morning is somewhat blurry, since I was not feeling well. Didn't manage to eat or have a coffee until about noon-time. I had some me-time reading my magazine while watching the girls play with the new stamp set Violet got for her birthday from her aunt. After lunch we spent some time at our very private rock concert (i.e. Richard practicing bass on Rocksmith). Violet did her usual singing and dancing, and we cheered. Lily took a nap and Violet did her usual following me around. In the afternoon, we all went to the store to buy the groceries for the rest of the weekend. I was very excited to find local strawberries for the first time! We cooked chicken breast and couscous with veggies for dinner; I have never cooked with couscous, but I love it! After the girls had gone to bed, I read my book until I fell asleep over it.

Violet woke me up with the most sweetest little kisses anyone can imagine! I picked up breakfast from the bakery around the corner for family breakfast. We did some cleaning and sorted the girls wardrobes, stored all the winter clothes and put out the spring/summer clothes; later, I watched The Program With The Mouse (absolutely awesome show for children that I had watched as a girl) with the girls. After lunch we did some relaxing before heading out for a walk to enjoy the nice weather. We headed over to the other side of town to see the progress on our lot. The trees and shrubbery was to be removed and the ground leveled for building. The work had not progressed as far as we hoped, and some littering had taken place, about which we were pretty annoyed. But we could see exactly where our house will be build within the coming year. It's definitely exciting! Afterward, we enjoyed some coffee with vanilla ice cream (ice cream and fresh strawberries for the girls) on the porch. The first afternoon snack on the porch is always again special! Hopefully, we will enjoy this moment in our own yard next year! We had veggy pasta salad for dinner. Doctor Who is available for watching, so the Mr. and I have our Sunday night entertainment once the second little one has turned in for the night.

On to another week, looking forward to next weekend  :-)
