I have to stop calling these “catching up” posts. It seems like I have zero discipline when it comes to posting on a daily basis.
The past couple of weeks, I have suffered from non-busyness. I actually do well in life when I’m busy. But two weeks ago, all of a sudden a bunch of projects at work got finished up and sent out the door, and I wasn’t super busy anymore. It was nice to have a day to get a breather once in a while. But for me, when I’m not stressing out at work, I fall apart. I get bored. I slack off and get absolutely nothing done all day. This is also reflected in my photography. I missed many days.
So. Um. Yeah. Let’s move on and show you what I do have.
These are two lovely people I have met at the Help Portrait events before. On this day, we were volunteering at Ronald McDonald House that hosts out-of-town families staying there for their children’s hospital visit at BC Children’s. Some are in town for a quick standard procedure, some have been there for 9 months for their children’s cancer treatment. There are no words to describe how much I looked forward to seeing my kids that night and holding them tight.
Sonia treated me to a cooking demonstration class for my birthday. The theme of the day was Mediterranean food. The food was great, and the company was even better.
Here is our growing pea plant. I have been meaning to show more photos of our planter box’s progress. But you know, lazy-itis got to me.
Savanna still likes playing with me at her current age. She doesn’t get tired of asking me to play her toys with her, do puzzles with her, read with her, or lay down in her bed with her. I am going to use this to remind her one day (when she is a teenager) that playing with mommy used to be cool.
I have this minor Pinterest addiction. I say minor because I can avoid it for 6 months at a time, then I will binge pinning non-stop for weeks. Anyway, I came across this turmeric tea recipe on Pinterest last week. I read in Scott Jerak’s book that turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties, so I figured I’d give this tea a try since my tendonitis has been acting up. It actually tasted quite good.
I went with Josh’s class field trip to the Vancouver Police Department Dog Squad. This is where the kennels are. They look almost like prison cells from the outside. For some reason, I don’t think the dogs really care about how the hallway looks.
Spring is definitely here. A back-alley corner looks better than any gardening I would be able to come up with.
I made some chocolate chip frozen yogurt for the kids. Savanna was wolfing hers down. I asked her if it was two thumbs up, and she only gave me one thumb. I guess it was good, but not amazing. Damn Pinterest.
