Friday Favourites


A couple of fun things from our week:

Q donned a Captain America costume on Monday for virtual school, and it was a hit.  He inspired a couple of his friends to go and find a costume too, and his (supply) teacher even grabbed a clown wig.  And then in his gym class, the teacher chose an Avenger themed workout video for them to try based on Q's costume.

We all played Bey Blades after supper one night.  Q can actually pull the cord himself (after we have loaded it up for him), but he wanted me to play for him instead.

We had another family game night last night.  We ordered from Fresh and played Wobble, Yahtzee, and Go Fish. 

Like many people, we have been looking for a weight set to use at home.  I had a set of five pound weights, and we have a 25 pound kettlebell, but it wasn't enough.  Dave ordered some weights from Peloton and they arrived this week.  Now we have 15, 20, 25, and 30.  The ten pound set is arriving next week.  

As a fan of Fleabag, I was delighted to find Phoebe Waller-Bridge's other TV show, Crashing, on Netflix.  Similar to Fleabag with its antics, dialogue, and awkwardness, but different too (and stars Anthony Bridgerton as Sam). I laughed out loud several times so worth watching if you liked Fleabag.  It is only one short season though :( 

I want to jump on the bandwagon for Amanda Gorman, the poet from the inauguration this week.  I am not really "into" poetry and spoken word performances, but this had me transfixed.  It is rare to get to witness such genius first hand (as first hand as one can get through the TV).  I am dutifully following her on Instagram now :)

I'm ready for this week to be over!  Looking forward to sleeping in past 7:00 am tomorrow.  Have a good Friday everyone!

Linking up with Andrea and Erika.


  1. I was inspired by Amanda Gorman too! Love that Q brought some fun to his school day and it snowballed to others joining in too! Have a great weekend!

  2. That Q is so cute! Making things fun! Thanks for the intro to Amanda Gorman. I did not hear her. Must check her part in the inauguration out. Happy Friday!

  3. I really liked Amanda Gorman too. I want her book that's coming out soon!

  4. Way to go Q to be an inspiration!!! That's awesome! Enjoy sleeping in tomorrow.

    And we had Harvey's and played Quirkle last night :)

  5. I had forgotten all about Beyblades! My boys used to have so many of them and a few battle arenas for them too. So fun.
