A high of the week was getting they vinyl decking installed on our new deck! Now we just have to get the railings up and it will pretty much be complete! (As complete as we need it to be to be able to enjoy it.) Not going to lie though, it’s pretty nice having an unobstructed view of the hill behind our house. Too bad glass panelling is expensive! (And a pain in the ass to keep clean.)
And a bonus shout-out to the amazing weather we’ve been having all week! I know it’s been insanely hot back east, but the weather here has been absolutely perfect.
A low of the week was Norah’s sunglasses going missing. She was wearing them yesterday morning while we walked Isla to school, and I don’t know if she tossed them out of the strolled on our way there or if someone swiped them while we were going inside the school, but they’re gone :( We even re-traced our steps and walked the same way home, but I didn’t see them anywhere. Oh well, they lasted a surprisingly long time, so I guess it’s okay.
An internet find I loved was the latest edition of Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets. The last one? DYING!
The best money I spent was on the fresh mozzarella I picked up to make homemade chicken parmesan. The fresh stuff is SOOOOO much better than that plasticky garbage that comes pre-shredded in the bags.
My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was getting Norah on the potty training train. I don’t know if it’s my absolute favourite moment of the week, but it’s been one of those milestones that I’ve been putting on the back burner for far too long now. We’re a few days in and things are going fairly well. *knocks on wood*
A song that has been stuck in my head is “What About Us” by Pink.
My meals of the week were meatballs, barbecued pork chops, baked chicken parmesan, carne asadas. Tonight’s meal is a mystery for now.
My plans for the weekend are playing in the final slo-pitch tournament of the year. Wish us luck! (We’re going to need it!)
How’s the weather where you are? Sun? Snow? Rain? Wind?
