Friday favourites

Happy Friday. Here are all the random happenings from our week.

1- My new obsession has been golden milk. In the Trinidadian-indo culture, it's usually given to new mothers as it's supposed to be cleansing. It's milk, fresh tumeric, fresh ginger, cinnamon sticks and a bit of green cardamom.  Sweetened with a touch of honey. If you like chai, this one is for you. 

2- My kids have both been at camp this week and loving it. This week it's a girl empowerment camp filled with fun and activities like drama, art, baking, sports, crafting and building. We also have a show today that showcases some of their talents at camp. It's definitely one that we'll consider again for next year.

3- While the kids are away, my job has been closets, closets and closets. Namely the girls' dressers and closets. I'm saving all the big house stuff for September but man, this was one we just needed to get done and it couldn't wait any longer. it.just.couldn't. Stuff has been sorted and put into keep, toss or donate piles. It's amazing how much crap junk stuff kids accumulate.

4- I did also manage to slip away for two lunches, first with my cousin and then with a friend. Have you guys ever had poke? So delicious. We also had sushi bowls and I've been craving it since.

5- And just a few smiles.

how my kids look at me when I make my kids clean their rooms before they get screen time.

When I'm stuck behind a massive truck going 45 in a 60 km/h zone and I'm running late for my kids.

When I tell my nephew not to play with something.

If you missed my other blog posts this week:

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!!
 Mine includes a roadtrip to the wonderful US of A.
