Friday Favourites

Happy Friday! It's the end of Week 18 with us all being at home together.  Certainly things have changed since March and we are allowed to shop and do more outdoor activities, but we certainly have a long way to go (ahem, the 2020/21 school year plans anyone?).

I wrote about our new summer "schedule" in yesterday's post.  Trying to keep the kids doing non-screen time activities.  I'm not anti-screens, I just don't want them to consume the day so we needed to set some expectations.

We made a couple of bird feeders on Monday and it went exactly as predicted - the squirrels were able to knock them down and ate all the food.  Oh well, squirrels need food too I guess!

We are going on a fishing vacation next week so the boys have been practicing down at the Humber. 

I drew the boys in chalk.   I think it looks pretty good, haha

It kind of reminds me of this "It's a cartoon!" (if you know, then you know)

E got some new golf clubs this week (which means Q gets E's old bag). Dave managed to find a half day golf camp for him to attend in August.  He took the kids out to the driving range this week.

I was a good Mom yesterday and made caramel corn.  I have been wanting to try it for awhile so I told E I would do it when it rained next.  

We visited the High Park Zoo on Thursday morning.  Despite a few rain showers, we had a successful trip. 

If you saw my Instagram story yesterday, you'd have seen my run in with a skunk.  I was sitting outside cooling off after my run and the little guy came around the corner.  I quickly got out of his way without causing too much alarm.  Phew!
This is a still from our Nest cam.

Linking up with Andrea and Erika.


  1. Aawww! I love all those pictures of the two brothers, your chalk drawing, too! Nice looking caramel corn. Happy Friday!

  2. Oh, good to know the High Park zoo is open!
    Have fun on your fishing trip.

  3. I just love that photo of your son fishing with the bridge arching over him and reflected back in the water. I hope they have a great time on the fishing trip!

  4. I think the squirrels are extra hungry this year. And those fishing pictures are so fun!
