I cleaned my van, you guys. To reward myself I ate a coconut creme tart the size of my face and now I feel bloated. But I am bloated with accomplishment.
It was my eldest daughter's last day of Kindergarten today. Let the summer holidays commence! I will be working all summer, which will be new for our family, but I am hoping to squeeze in plenty of afternoons at the beach in between selling lakefront mansions (ha!).
Yesterday the two younger girls got the most adorable bob haircuts. I am dying from the cuteness. Nothing like short hair on sweet little girls for the summer!
I have been totally uninspired in the kitchen since work has been so busy. I don't have the time I used to to devote to recipe-scouring, meal planning and cooking so that means we eat a lot of omelettes and a lot of...random stuff from the pantry. Beans? With toast? Sure! Tuna? With toast? Yeah! Let's order pizza? SIGN ME UP! I still have so much to master when it comes to the work-life-home-family-marriage-friends balance and I feel like I am perpetually falling short.
I started making homemade ice cream and it is the best thing ever. It takes a bit of pre-planning but is worth it. (I bought the Kitchen Aid ice cream maker attachment since I already had the mixer.)
I am going to go strawberry picking this weekend and harvest 135 pounds of ruby deliciousness. I can still summon the memory of the flavour of the ones I picked last year. Nothing like fresh, in-season, local fruit. Boom!
Happy Summer to you all!
