Friday Favourites

Happy Friday everyone!  And happy long weekend to everyone in Canada!  

This year I didn't feel like making a whole turkey and going with the traditional side dishes for Thanksgiving so we are going to try having a slimmed down version - I bought just a turkey breast and will make mashed sweet potatoes, and roasted Brussels sprouts and beets.  I will be making two kinds of pie though, I'm not a monster.  We will also try to fit in a run and a family bike ride, weather permitting. 

My favourite coffee beans were at Starbucks when I was in last week - Casi Cielo; I had to pick up a bag to enjoy at home. 

E had another art class this week.  He is really loving it and I like keeping a record of his paintings here.  This one is inspired by Egypt. 

E also had his cross country track meet this week.  He did so well and ran hard!  There were a lot of Grade 2 boys in his race but he managed to get out in front and finish strong.  

Mass start for the Grade 2 boys.

The kid in the black pinney is our friend that we go camping with!  E kept him in his sights and finished right behind him.

One of this year's winners of the Nobel Prize is from Canada, Donna Strickland from the University of Waterloo!  And I loved what she said about being a working mom, "If we all do what we are really good at, it just helps the world."  Hear hear!

My office had its annual Harvest party for our clients on Wednesday night.  I indulged in some wine, cheese, and tasty appetizers, but it was worth it. 

I ordered this workbook for E from Amazon.  I am a fan of the Canadian curriculum books and was happy to find a Grade 2 math book.  It should help with his reading and writing as well. 

I wrote about Q's birthday celebrations here.

And I wrote about what I am thankful here..

Thanks you to my readers as well.  Enjoy your weekend.
