Wednesday April 12th –
I’d been waking up when Mike left for work, so not long after he left, I moseyed upstairs and was greeted by the smell of rice at 6:20 in the morning?
Mom was getting the stuff ready to make cabbage rolls 😎👌🏻
I worked on my lettering while watching, learning and mostly hanging around so I could taste test things 😏
In the time it took her to make 150 cabbage rolls (no worries, she was making extra so there is some left for when Dad and the sister come home 😉) I had just worked out how to letter the word, ‘Flamingo’ 🙄
Later in the afternoon Mom, convinced me to go for a walk with her, Becca and Spencer.
Luckily for me it was a shorter one, just the right size really 😜
(Mind you when I say walk, I do mean SPEED walk.
The kind of fast walking that’s pretty much the same speed as a slow jog, the one that makes you sweat and become out of breath.
That kind of walk 🙃)
Not long after we’d returned from our walk, Mike came back from work.
Earlier then expected, so supper was quickly started and we got to test the first of the cabbage rolls.
He didn’t think they were anything special, so that means we all get more 😎👌🏻😜
After supper, I wrote, Mike rested and then I gave Mom a shoulder rub, feeling guilty about the amount of cooking she’d done all day while I simply wrote ‘flamingo’.
(Yes, now when you all see the picture of it, you’ll be disgusted at how long something so simple took… So am I.)
After her shoulder rub she figured it would be a good idea to swap foot rubs too and when wouldn’t anyone agree to that kind of offer??!
So, pre bedtime foot rubs were exchanged and then after some outfit and destination planning for our next days trip to Saskatoon, good nights were said. Continue reading “The First Week, Over Where It Began”
