Slowly getting back on the swing of things!
It’s Sunday again! And this weekend is Mother’s Day. So Happy Mother’s Day to our moms and to any moms reading this. 😊 We all took my mom, Christopher’s mom and Grandma to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden to celebrate. And I also visited my mom during the week. Anyway, let’s get on with the weekly recap!
🌈 Monday 🌈
This stuff is from last week but I didn’t have a chance to take pictures until now. Some Jurassic World finds. First, a puzzle in an egg! I haven’t “hatched” it yet. 😁
And a really nice coloring book, of the same sort as the Turning Red one:
This one actually was from today. We went to Sam’s Club and I found the most amazing Mandalorian activity book:
The pages are THICK. It has lots of activities, some with actual cardstock. I can’t recommend this enough! It will make for lots of scrapbooking fun.
🌈 Tuesday 🌈
Tuesday I went to my mom’s. All I have from this day is this photo of Sweeney:
🌈 Wednesday 🌈
On Wednesday my mom’s gas station was closed down because they were recording a Ferrari commercial. We were allowed a sneak peek!
And have more photos of Sweeney, because why not…
In the evening I finally beat Pokémon Sword, so that was nice.
🌈 Thursday 🌈
On Thursday we got news of a fire near my beloved Marham Park. There was a storm the night before, and lighting hit somewhere. The fire was very big and we still don’t know if it was just the Everglades or the park itself affected. I hope it wasn’t the park. 😞
A new scratcher I ordered for the kitties came in on this day. Rosie took to it immediately:
For lunch we ordered açaí bowls from Raw Addiction, but they were much smaller than usual which was a bummer.
Anyway, my feeder is getting continuous visitors. They do make a mess, but I love them all the same.
🌈 Friday 🌈
Friday morning I went out for a long walk, and also to Target. I didn’t buy anything but these Jurassic Park Funko backpacks were really neat to see:
For lunch I had avocado toast and opened another Good2Grow Podz:
Got a trike this time! Really cute.
🌈 Saturday 🌈
This was the day we took our Moms and Grandma out! We were off early, first to pick up my mom and then to grab breakfast.
It is rare that my mom joins us on an outing like this one, and our partner was with us too, so these photos are really precious to me. I wish my sis in law had been with us too, then I could say all of the people I love most in the world were with me. All the photos below are of me and my family.
When I went a few weeks ago with our partner, none of the LEGO stuff was on display tet. But this time it was, and that made this visit a particular treat!
The slightly maddening thing is that the upcoming LEGO statue to be unveiled is a realistic snail on a mushroom… and I missed it! Sigh. 😞
Anyway –critters! The photo set below is all critters. My favorite is the lounging squirrel at the start!
And here are all the other photos… flowers, plants and such, things that didn’t fit in the above sets:
I got a bit worried because my mom seemed close to heat stroke by the end. But ultimately we made it to a restaurant and then she felt better. After that, we took her home. Then the rest of us relaxed back at our place.
🌈 Sunday 🌈
Breakfast this morning was SO wonderful! Christopher made me a fancy pancake again and my mom in law burned the bacon just the way she knows I like it. Not extra crispy. Burnt! It’s always a delight.
I got an even cuter photo from my squirrel feeder today!
And that’s all… family is now gone back to Sebastian so it’s time to get to work again and continue catching up on my backlog of, well… everything!
