A beautiful smoothie bowl to start our Friday off.
It was PA day for the kids but of course Dave and I still had to work. The kids watched some movies and in the morning E joined my mom on FaceTime to do an art project.
Finally in the late afternoon I was able to get the kids outside. We took the remote control car out for a spin and did a bit of sledding.
Pizza night and E did some drawing while he waited for his pizza.
Dave's self-proclaimed Pizza of the Week.
After supper, Q went to bed and Dave went up to work on the rink. E and I watched The Never-ending Story.
I got up early to do some errands up the street (first one in most stores and didn't have to wait in line) and then we got out skating mid-morning.
In the afternoon Q and I made some brownies so we could put some pink sprinkles on them and call them a Valentine's Day treat.
We had tacos for supper and then watched The Goonies
On Sunday morning I put out a few Valentine's Day gifts for everyone.
And it had snowed so we went out to shovel. Q helped to clean off the car.
I ordered this box from Culinary Adventure Co. as a gift for Dave and me. It had lots of local goodies, including coffee, oat milk beverages, chocolate, spice mix for fish, tomato jam, fruit jam, and a mug. At Christmas we ordered their Christmas Market in a box which was a big success.
Q liked his cookie from Mad Batter Bakers.
E got some new books.
Q got some picture books and E read them to him.
Then I made an apple pie. It was so delicious.
In the afternoon we met some friends for sledding. It was a beautiful day and the sun made it very pleasant.
Hot chocolate break.
When we got home I put our chicken in the oven to roast, and then had a cocktail and a game of crib with my Valentine.
Gravy simmering away after the chicken came out of the oven.
We had our chicken dinner, and then Dave went out to start a fire in the backyard. A few friends came over for an evening fire.
Monday was a holiday and we had no set plans. The kids did a puzzle and I read my new book.
In the afternoon we went for a walk by the Humber River. They are doing some construction so there are fences set up for quite a ways. Q found a piece of ice and called it his iPad so Dave took their picture with it.
A woodpecker if you can spot it.
It was grey and a little colder than I thought it would be, but still a nice walk. I love seeing the river in a different season, after spending so much time here in the summer.
We took the road back and stopped in at the playground where there were a few people we knew there so we got to say hello and the kids played. We were gone for awhile but a good afternoon out. I made some pasta for supper and then we enjoyed our pie and watched a few TV shows before a fairly early night.
