Friday night was pretty basic, we had some grilled chicken and roasted sweet potato for supper, E did some homework while Dave and I tidied up the house. We did not have our regular movie night since the neighbours were out, but we did have a few chips and watched the Great Canadian Baking Show. It was not a late night, which was good since some of us (ahem, me) were getting a cold.
I got up early and headed to my workout. I usually go anyway, but there was extra incentive as we were promised a swag bag. We all got a new yoga mat, Swell water bottle, and a couple of cans of cider. Thanks Strongbow!
Here is the class after our workout.
I took Q to his Sportball class - he had his snack and water before class started. He was quite comfortable being left there and understood I was not going to be watching him. They played basketball this week.
I relaxed for a few minutes after lunch while Q napped and finally watched the season finale of This is Us. Now I can get to the new season. Dave, his dad who is in town visiting us and helping with the basement, and E drove out to Mississauga to pick up the flooring. When the got back, E helped me make some pumpkin chocolate chip loaf. We doubled the recipe since we had lots of pumpkin.
Q is always a little grumpy when he gets up from his nap but he quickly perked up when he found out about the pumpkin loaf.
I also put together a lasagna and made some vegan Caesar salad dressing for our supper. Then we had some time to go to the playground before supper. It was a little chilly but still nice to be outside.
One of my favourite suppers.
The boys played a few games, and I opted to read my book and sip wine instead.
Sunday morning started out a little rainy, but Dave and his dad were able to get out and run 20 km, as one does on a Sunday morning ;) (No thanks!) I took the boys to church, and we celebrated Worldwide Communion Sunday.
When we got home I did some prep work for Thanksgiving and made gravy and cranberry sauce (from Jamie Oliver's Christmas cookbook).
I did a quick bike to Shoppers to get something and then did my workout when I got home. I am doing the Well and Tight Abs, Arms, and Squat challenge.
Around 4:30 we all headed out for a "hike", which is basically a walk through the woods along the Humber with the end goal of Queen Margherita Pizza for supper. It was a pleasant day to be out.
Who'd know you were in the middle of Toronto!?
Our pizzas are ready!
Then we walked home and got the kids ready for bed. I did my usual Sunday night routine of getting ready for the week and then we watched Saturday Night Live and got to bed at a decent hour!
What fun! I enjoyed reading about your weekend. Laughed out loud at Q's reaction upon seeing the pumpkin bread! And your comment on the 20k Sunday am run! 😂 Nice yoga mat!ReplyDelete
