Is it Friday already? Man these weeks go fast. In fact, I've been so busy that I had originally planned NOT to do a Five on Friday post this week because I just didn't have the time or energy.
However, one hour into my day at school today, I received a phone call from my daughter's school letting me know that she was sick and needed to be picked up early. So, now I'm home with a little girl who is resting comfortably, and I have several "bonus" hours to use today.
Don't worry -- I'll get some practical stuff done too, but first I'll join in with Amy's "Five on Friday" and link up with her blog, Love Made My Home.
So here they are - five photos from my phone that show how my week shaped up around here:
Number One: Our youngest son, Camden had his first soccer game of the season. He plays on Team Sunshine and wears a uniform to match. He was quite disappointed about not winning his first game but he ensures me that he will try even harder next week. Too cute!
Number Two: Do you see this temperature? Wow. We've had some very summery, hot, hot days already in May. In fact, we've had our air conditioning on a few times!
Number Three: What goes with hot days? Mojitos of course. I had some leftover mint and wasn't sure what to use it for. Hubby came up with the best plan "so we don't waste food," and went and bought all the ingredients needed for Mojitos. There was NO wasted mint in our house this week!
Number Four: Still baking a cake a week. This week my son requested a cake with raspberries in it so I made a Double Chocolate Blackout Cake with raspberry jam in between the layers. Up on top I swirled some white and pink whipped cream, perfectly feminine for Mother's Day last weekend.
Number Five: Oh how I love this lilac-y time of year. I went out and cut several bunches of lilacs this morning and our home smells heavenly now! My trees are COVERED in blossoms and I look forward to several more days of fresh cut blooms!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. It's a long weekend around here as Monday is Victoria Day. We've got some fun and relaxing plans and I am looking forward to sharing some of them with you next week!
Hugs to all!
