E got a few new board games for his birthday and a few nights this week after supper we played them. It is nice to spend some time playing a game now that he is a little older. He got Quirkle, Ker-Plunk and Stoopido. So far my favourite is Quirkle, although we are still figuring out how to keep score.
I posted about these hair elastics on Wednesday's post but it bears repeating since I really love them. The patterns are so pretty!
Our busy weeks and weekends are continuing but it's fine with me! I love being busy because it makes me feel more productive and then the down times are so much more deserved. We E already has swimming and choir on Thursdays and after Halloween we are adding indoor soccer on Tuesdays, and then I have a workout class scheduled for both Thursday nights and Saturday mornings. I am looking forward to it all though. Bring it on!
I picked up one of these collapsible colander a couple of weeks ago and I use it almost everyday. Mine is red. The bottom pushes out so it becomes a bowl. I am always rinsing off just a handful of berries or fruit and instead of using my hand (and dropping some in the sink or having no place to put them afterwards) I have found this be very useful.
I'm always a fan of Rick Mercer and I loved his "rant" about Gord Downie this week. What a neat story!
Speaking of Gord Downie, two of my favourite microbreweries Boxing Rock and Garrison (does Garrison count as a microbrewery anymore) are collaborating on a special edition brew to commemorate Gord Downie. I'm hoping my mom can get her hands on one or two to bring up on her next visit...
