Hello, everyone! I hope you’ve had a happy week! It’s been very busy for us, as all weeks have been lately. So, as has become the norm for my blog, I just have one long post to catch you all up on the week’s happenings.
For starters, I am sick again. It seems I had one week of relief in between head colds. It’s very mild (milder than the prior one). Just really annoying. Anyway! Let’s begin.
🍛 Curry Dinner! 🍛
On Tuesday night, I made Japanese style curry. I’ve had many previous attempts that didn’t turn out so great. Finally I figured it out, trying a new recipe which I doctored a bit. My guys loved it, as did I, and I’m looking forward to having it again with different meats.
🎂 Christopher’s 38th Birthday Dinner 🎂
Wednesday was Christopher’s birthday! He got his remaining presents in the morning, and in the evening, we went to The Capital Grille in Downtown Miami. It was an extremely fancy restaurant, a real treat, so I dressed up a little.
Christopher was… excited.
All the food was wonderful, but I didn’t have my phone (forgot it in the car) so I didn’t take many pictures. Here is one of the appetizer, though, Tuna Tartare:
It was spicy. We also got a picture of Christopher with his birthday dessert:
🧸 Toklo 🧸
Toklo now has a new ribbon and shirt. He still needs his name necklace, I’ll work on that next week.
The shirt is pretty funny, it was a Build-A-Bear online exclusive.
🚂 Date Night 🚂
For date night, we had one more round of playing with our trains before putting them away. We’ll probably play again in a month or two; I’m sure I’ll want to, as my new Thomas things begin to arrive later this month.
A little video…
Toklo got to play with us too:
The cats always love to observe and walk among the track. They don’t destroy anything, they just get excited by it all.
Afterwards we had tea. They gamed for a bit while I kept fiddling with Instagram, setting up my new art account. It was a nice, chill end to a lovely evening together.
🏴☠️ Rosie 🏴☠️
Have some cute photos I took of Rosie. I woke her up from her morning nap and played with her a little. She is such a soft, sweet little thing!
🥞 Pancake Breakfast 🥞
This weekend, Christopher’s mom and grandma came to visit and celebrate Christopher’s birthday. We went to Nami Sushi for Friday night dinner and to a Thai place on Saturday evening. On Saturday morning, we had pancakes. Christopher made me a mouse-shaped one, so I decorated it:
It was very yummy!
Unfortunately I spent a lot of the weekend in a very crabby mood due to being sick. I am not very sick, but it is annoying. It makes it harder to do anything, and I am constantly sleepy. It also got a lot colder on Saturday night, and the cold makes me lazier. Hopefully I get my energy back again real soon.
📦 Goodies From This Week 📦
I have a few new things to share. One is this new top I got on Etsy. It appears very wrinkled in this photo, but it’s really very cute:
I also got a Super Mario coloring/sticker book and a Camp Cretaceous activity play-pack:
Finally, we went on a Goodwill stroll yesterday, and I had two happy finds. One is this lovely old storybook:
And the other is this awesome, massive Sesame Street blanket that I covered my futon with. I love it! It is like new, and only six bucks.
That is all for this week’s post. I am tired, and busy… I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, and I look forward to sharing another week of art with you as I get back to my drawing board on Monday.
