August Break Catch-up: Aug 5-10

I’m still playing along with the August Break! Here are the photos from the past few days:


The beautiful blue sky after a morning trip to the playground.


Some kids in the neighbourhood were having fun with chalk, and they wrote beautiful messages.



On the 6th, I headed out for a work date. I started out under a tree with Arwen, my new computer.


Then I ended up at Starbucks. Tea, chocolate cookies, free WiFi. Best. Office. Ever.



On the 7th, I snapped this photo of Matthew giving loves to our other cat, The Beans. The Beans only comes out when Xander’s asleep.



On the 8th, I made roasted veggies with zucchinis from my mom’s garden. I tossed them with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, whole-grain mustard, and tarragon. YUM!!!!


And then I spent FAR TOO LONG transferring files to my new computer. I’m STILL working on this!



On Aug 9, I started packing for real. FINALLY. There’s SO much left to do, but it feels good to have a solid start.



August 10 was Xander’s birthday. For lunch, we tried hot dog and noodle bites. Here’s the before shot….


….and after. We mixed them up with Kraft Dinner (or Kraft Mac ‘n’ Cheese if you’re American). They were TRASHTACULAR. I highly recommend them!


And finally, the birthday cake! It’s a chocolate cake from a mix, homemade cream cheese icing, and a creeper (a monster from Minecraft) drawn by Matthew.


Have a great weekend!

  1. hooray for new macbooks! i love her name (i’m a sucker for naming things, too! my macbook is named ariel *smile*). and speaking of names — the beans is pretty much the best name EVER! 😀

    1. Hehe! Thanks!
      Yeah, The Beans’s original name (when we adopted him) was Tracker. Once we got him, it became Tracker-beans…and then The Beans. It suits him SO well! 🙂
