A Friday ritual.

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

A moment I want to pause, savor and remember – {this moment}

This is the first spring break we didn’t go anywhere (because of the boys’ different school schedules). Between Mr. Piggy and I, we took off a day here and there. He also spent some time with his cousins (my sister took the week off for her kids). When Mr. Piggy stayed home with him, there wasn’t much productivity [frown]. Today, I took off and got him 1) to clean his room, 2) to bake and 3) to do his laundry. Of course, he complained! I just had a little more patience than him. I nagged until he gave up and did it. That’s one of the many differences between a mom and a dad.IMG_2450These came out beautifully and just in time for Dai Bee’s afternoon snacks. He scarfed down 3 without much hesitation.IMG_2412

Mr. Piggy dragged the boys down to the backyard this morning to do some cleaning and pruning. Yes, “dragged” since this is not their favorite ‘chore,’ but anything to get them away from electronics! First the boys were moaning and groaning. Once they started, they seemed to enjoy the work…

In the beginning of the summer, my boys and I have set goals for the entire summer. Our weekends are filling up quick, with parties and activities, or events that come up last minute. So when we don’t have anything planned, we’d work on completing our tasks (or, anything to keep the boys away from electronics). One of the goals is to work or ‘clean up’ the backyard. After baseball practice today, the boys spent some time on the backyard with Mr. Piggy. There was quite some work to be done.

While they were doing that, I need to keep myself busy as well.

Made soup for the week

prepped lunch for the week

cooked dinner

brewed herbal tea (smoothing sore throat) for Mr. Piggy

wrapped dumplings (snacks for boys afterschool)

baked cake roll (strawberry filling)
