Friday was a long day! We had lots going on at work and school that day. The gin and tonic I made myself after work was welcome! Happy Mother's Day weekend to me.
Dave tried a new pizza dough recipe, based on the Neopolitan pizza style, and then I tried a white pizza recipe. It was delicious!
We set up the Blue Jays game outside and watched it out there, despite it being chilly! I was wearing a touque!
On Saturday morning, we were off to a slow start with some puzzle work and coffee.
The boys went out to run some errands so when they were gone, I did a Britney Spears ride on Peloton, which was great fun!
In the afternoon we headed up to see some friends at the school yard. I managed to get the kids to leave with a promise of a treat on the way home. It was so cold on our walk but Q still picked an ice cream, but E got a tart, and I got a coffee.
We had a simple dinner and then Dave and I watched The Handmaid's Tale before trying to get to be early.
Sunday was Mother's Day and I was treated to quite the spread!
My favourite breakfast of smoked salmon on bagels. Also a cake from Bake Sale, although we did not have it for breakfast!
Some pretty flowers.
Some fun macarons from a place in the Junction.
A fun gift box of local treats from Culinary Adventures.
Dave had set up a movie that I like for us to watch, Titanic. It is a great movie, although I think the kids were a little shocked at how many people died. Maybe this will be the movie they will answer when they are asked "Which movie did you watch as a child that scarred you for life?").
After the movie and lunch we went outside to clean up our bikes. Ready for the season.
And I took out some of the goodies from my gift box to enjoy in the afternoon.
The rest of the afternoon, we watched the golf (Go Rory!!) and I napped a little bit, and then we got supper ready. We had steak, green beans, and baked potatoes. And then we finally had a piece of cake for our dessert.
Then we outside to hit a few golf balls before bed.
Dave and I opted for a new show, Formula 1: Drive to Survive, and watched a few episodes. FI is a whole different world that I know nothing about, I'm fascinated.
Lots of sweet and savoury treats for you! I especially like the sweet face of E behind the flowers. He looks pleased as he watches you. As they say, priceless! That pizza looks professional! Worth the extra effort.ReplyDelete
Happy Mother’s Day! Looks like a great spread! We also had bagels and smoked salmon on Mother’s Day (and a few other things as we did a brunch. Emily made the most amazing soufflé pancakes). What is the Junction macaron place called?ReplyDelete
You got lots of great flowers! And we need to start stocking gin so I can make G&Ts. I LOVE drinking them when we visit my parents so why don't I make them at home?!?!? And yes, can it PLEASE warm up soon???ReplyDelete
