Happy Friday everyone! I'm posting today because I want to join in with Amy over at her blog, Love Made My Home. She does a weekly linky party called, "Five on Friday" where bloggers are encouraged to share a list of five things that bring them joy and might bring the same to others.
This is only the second time I've taken part, but I look forward to reading about what all the other bloggers post about using this theme.
What are my five things? Well - they are five photos I've chosen from my phone's camera roll. They capture simple moments from my week and bring smiles to my face when I view them.
I hope they do the same for you!
Number One: Making a cute breakfast for my sweet little ones. Who wouldn't enjoy pancake "soldiers" dipped in real maple syrup? And when that syrup comes in a cute heart-shaped bowl - it tastes even better!
Number Two: My oldest son has an unusual name - well at least here in Canada! I know their are many, many "Bryns" in Wales because that is where the name hails from. Needless to say, finding this license plate in the school parking lot absolutely made his day!!
Number Three: Spring has disappeared from our part of Ontario, Canada. Actually - I should clarify. Spring is here... except that it is the gloomy, wet, muddy, rainy version of spring. Tonight when I got home from school I was completely chilled by the dampness and in need of something warm and cozy.
What better to fill that void than a creamy latte with extra whipped cream and a squeeze of chocolate sauce to top it all off!!
Number Four: Last night our children's school had a "International Celebration" where the students celebrated the world through food, song, costume, display and dance.
My daughter had been preparing for weeks to perform with the school's Bollywood dance group. She was the only non-Indian child participating in the dance and had to borrow some be-jewelled traditional dress from a friend.
However we encouraged her to participate to the fullest and enjoy every minute of it - and she did! She absolutely rocked it! We cheered so loudly when she and her friends completed their routine. They had literally brought the house down and our little lady was the star! People stopped her throughout the rest of the evening congratulating her on her fantastic performance. One dear friend, who is Indian, stated that Afton was the most "Bollywood" of them all. Even the principal of the school emailed to let Afton know how proud she was of her!!
|(I couldn't get any good pictures - I was shaking too hard!! Afton is the one in the pink.)|
Number Five : Hubby and I met at Music school nearly 20 years ago (OMG!). He was a jazz musician and I was an opera singer. We didn't travel in the same circles but we knew of each other but didn't start dating until our fifth year of university when we both attended a Faculty of Education to become teachers.
I don't sing anymore (except in my kindergarten classroom) and he rarely gets to play. But tonight he was invited to be part of a funk band's performance at a nearby venue so I took the kids to see him play. They LOVED it! (and so did I!)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
I hope it is sunny and warm wherever you are.
