My Week in Pictures - #1

Hello everyone, what a busy week our family had! I meant to do some more posts over the weekend, but we ran out of bandwidth, so we have just enjoyed a few days of ‘isolation’!

Here is what we did this week:

Nancy blew bubbles for the Three Blind Mice (Beth, Gabrielle and Rebekah).

We read stories.
Our ‘Mouse’s Favourite Book of the Week’ is ‘A Song for Jamela’ by Niki Daly. What an adorable story about Jamela and famous ‘Afro Idol’ Miss Bambi Chaka Chaka. When Miss Chaka Chaka comes to Aunt Beauty’s Hair Salon, young Jamela is asked to help...unfortunately something dreadful happens and Aunt Beauty makes a terrible mistake! Will Jamela be able help fix the problem without Miss Chaka Chaka noticing?

The younger girls also played a lot.

And helped me water the carrot patch! (Coming soon!)

We did ‘Time for Tots’ and made these adorable caterpillars!  Read more here.

Beth, Gabrielle and Nancy helped me make some ‘Time for Tots’ buttons using powder paint and the bathroom window!  They made handprints, I took the pictures and Nancy held up the background which was a white sheet...they turned out pretty well, what do you think?  Now all you have to do is right click on the image, ‘save as’ and use it as a picture on your side-bar so that you can show others you are a tot school lover!

We visited dear friends for tea...Nancy and Mom made a big lemon meringue pie for this occasion.

I spent the entire afternoon on a walk to take pictures of their amazing farm (coming soon).  Despite the fact that I shocked myself on the fence trying to take a picture of Miss Apple Pie (the cute pig:-), I thoroughly enjoyed myself and had a very relaxing time lying on the grass and doing...um...nothing...!

Don’t you love Beth’s new hairstyle? Freshly cut during the week and I think she looks more ‘Beth’ than ever!

I also read the following books this week:

What Katy Did
What Katy Did at School
And What Katy Did Next by Susan M. Coolidge

I’m no good at keeping resolutions, but here are a few random things I’d like to do/achieve in the week ahead:

Finish my ‘pouch style drawstring bag’ that is – oh, so trying my patience!
Post my #2 Sensational Sewing Challenge!
Take photos of baby guinea pigs that are leaving for the pet shop next week.
Be kind, loving, patient, gentle, self-controlled, etc, etc :D

Exciting Bit of News – six more weeks till new baby is born!!

What was YOUR week like? What did YOU achieve this week and what are your resolutions for the week ahead? Do YOU have an exciting bit of news? Please leave me a comment below!

Blessings for the week ahead,
