What's Up Wednesday- July 2020

, What’s Up Wednesday {04.29.20}

Hello!!! Here's what's been going on around here lately. 

What we're eating this week:

Eating healthy-ish... 

Monday: roasted cauliflower, pan fried steamed halibut and potatoes for the kids.

Tuesday: lentil turkey sausage soup

Wednesday: fish tacos or shrimp of some sort.

Thursday: veggie burgers maybe? We try to do meatless....

Friday: maybe some takeout or some sort of finger food Friday. 

Weekends will be time on the grill, some tacos and maybe one set of takeout

We are obsessed with this Greek seven layered dip after my friend made it and have had it three times in the last month. Super healthy and so yummy!

Ice creams are a thing here often now... as I said "healthy-ish" LOL

What I'm reminiscing about:

DIfferent sorts of summers. The summers of my childhood were a whole lot like this one. Not a whole lot scheduled, later mornings, ice cream, a little academia and different activities at home. I'm not complaining too much though the summer camps are fun for the kids and seeing friends and family often is a whole lot of awesome. 

Making soaps is one of those random activities! 

So is playing with neighbourhood dogs as we can't find one of our own... Everyone has a waiting list--- even the shelters.

What I'm dreading:

News comes out this week in Ontario about schools. I'm scared to see what they do with French Immersion, the program that both my kids are in....  there is talk about it not being an option anymore because of smaller class sizes and a shortage of french teachers. 

What I'm loving:

My garden is bringing us a whole lot of happy. Peppers, beans and tomatoes are ready and we have the cutest little eggplants and watermelons that should be ready in a bit!

What we've been up to

Doing little day trips here and there. We went to the lavender farm the other day. It was so picturesque. 

Pictures coming soon!

What I'm working on

Still trying to figure out our backyard stuff. So much sun in that backyard  that renders it unusable for so much of this beautiful summer. 

What I'm excited about

We are heading to some beaches next week and it will be good to do a mini vacay of sorts.

What I'm watching/reading

My kids love the babysitters club series of my childhood, turned into the graphic novels of their childhood, now a series on Netflix and we just finished it. 

The Baby-Sitters Club (2020)

We also watch World of Dance as a family and America's got Talent sometimes!

I've read so much lately.... I really need to do a few recaps-- it all won't be able to fit into one. 

What I'm listening to:

The Headspace mini podcasts. Andy does one every day and they are just a few minutes each.

What I'm wearing:

Lots of loose summer dresses, swimwear, gym stuff and comfy cool clothes. It has been a scorcher of a summer and I'm NOT complaining as come November, I'll be fondly reminiscing. 

What I'm doing this weekend

We have a holiday weekend so that's fun. Very low key. 

What else is new:

This little lady turned eight and had a few playdates and a dinner out to celebrate.

Have a great week, friends!

  1. We are dreading the same thing. We are also enjoying The Babysitters Club. Does it annoy anyone else that Dawn doesn't have long blonde hair?

  2. That dip looks amazing, and yay for the Babysitters Club! Sending all the hugs your way as you await news on the girl's school <3

  3. That dip looks amazing, I love salty black olives and feta!! I am dreading the plans for school too, so uncertain and even if we have a plan, I feel like it could still be changed.

  4. I thought the new Babysitters Club series was super adorable! Positive thoughts about your schools! Ours already released their plan and I had my children decide which one they wanted to do.

  5. Okay, I want the recipe for that dip! It looks delicious and I LOVE Greek food. I too am anxiously awaiting the news about schools. I had heard that Toronto might not do any French but hadn't clued into the fact that that might also be the case here :( That would be so sad...

  6. We've been watching the Babysitters Club and AGT too.

  7. My 8 yr old and i watched Babysitters Club and loved it. Now if I could get her to read the books.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
