Well, last week was the official start of summer around here, with sunny skies and high school kids off school (the rest are done this week). Let’s give a round of applause to my good friend Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets, who is not only the best cook I’ve ever known (and I haven’t tasted a single thing she’s made–she’s that good) but she’s also funny, clever, compassionate and the host of this week’s Week in Review.
Andrew, Callum and I kicked off the week on Monday with a breakfast out and a trip into Fort Langley to check out the trains. He’s still a bit sensitive to how loud they are so we have to hold him when a train goes by.
We walked down to the park and played hide and go seek.
We spent the majority of the week outdoors. As you can see, I’ve replaced my Corona with Nuun. Not for too much longer…
But I had to reserve one day where we stayed in and got a bunch of stuff done. I got up at 5:45 to run, paid the bills, went to the bank, brought Jake around to apply for jobs, cleaned bathrooms, baked cookies, muffins, cooked 2 shepherd’s pies to put in the freezer, and then made a chicken dinner with mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, the works, for which Jake stayed to eat, which was so great. But man I was tired that day.
Callum made sure to catch up on his sleep in the middle of the kitchen floor.
I wish I could do that. Actually, I’m so tired that I probably could.
The weekend was pretty low-key. It was a cooker (35 C on Sunday) and I even ran right in the middle of the day! I tried to run with my Ray Bans but they slid off my nose and I ended up carrying them. It’s been pretty tough to sleep when the nights are so hot. It’s cooler today so I’m hoping to force-nap Callum in the stroller so that he stays up a bit later tonight and then (crossing fingers) sleeps past 5:30am tomorrow morning. It’s very difficult to be up with a noisy 3 year-old while the rest of the house sleeps until 9. Plus, I’ll be needing to run in the mornings now that it’s so hot and I am not willing to get up at 4am to get home before Callum wakes up at 5:30! NO THANK YOU.
Does it feel like summer where you live?
Where is the weirdest place you’ve ever fallen asleep?
