What's Up Wednesday- June 2021

Happy last Wednesday in June and yes to the end of the bizarro school year.... it's been a long one, friends. However, C told me that I had to blog soon as my last blog post was a little bit of a cliff hanger (!), so here I go....

, What’s Up Wednesday {12.18.19}

What we're eating this week?

Monday: Lamb skewers and leftover Greek salad. Kids also had greek potatoes and rice
Tuesday: shrimp/crab cakes with a lobster stuffed portabello with garlic scapes and asparagus. Kids had potatoes and chicken also.
Wednesday: shimp/crab cakes with a 1/4 lobster stuffed pepper and a salad. (can you tell that I went to the fishmonger this week.
Thursday: Canada Day food--- burgers et al.
Friday: hmmmm.... who knows?

What I'm reminiscing about
Summers past when I spent at least a week in NYC with my family. One of my favourite people turns 6o today and I'm not there to celebrate with her.

What I'm loving
Sweet C graduated from elementary school. We had a tiny get together for her with four friends (our limit in Ontario at the time was 10. Actually, in the Waterloo region it still is ten until mid July)

What we've been up to…
A bit of gardening... things are starting to look lush and green.

Check out the baby zucchini

Peonies from my neighbours' yard make us so happy.

What I'm working on

Getting this little lady her second vaccine- so far, I've managed to move it up by a week but I'm hoping for sooner.

What I'm excited about…
We went to the farmers market for the first time this year and it was good to do a random summer outing. 

What I'm watching/reading…
I've not been watching a whole lot except for the final episodes of Felicity when I get a chance but boy have I been reading. I just finished Jennifer Weiner's new one and it was very good. I seem to be gravitating to  contemporary mysteries these days. I'm also going to reread some of my old Elin Hilderbrands like I do in the summer. 

What I'm wearing…
Summer dresses- this year is the year of the shirt dress! I'm obsessed but only have two, ha!

What I'm doing this weekend…
Canada Day is on Thursday so it's just a small get together with a couple neighbours. Other than that, A has a couple playdates and I'm going to see a sweet friend who has pancreatic cancer. 

What I'm looking forward to next month? 
Some summer fun with the kiddos. A couple day trips here and there, A's birthday, some low key  playdates and maybe a couple get togethers with family and friends. Looking forward to people again LOL.

What else is new?

My neighbours' son had a wedding the other day and it was so beautiful. We weren't invited but D didn't want to be in his shorts while the guests were all around...

Also, this dog is obsessed with A while she is eating. Maybe because she passes him along some food. 

So that's what's been going on! Hope you have a wonderful day, lovelies.

  1. That looks like a wonderful pool party and a great way to celebrate the end of elementary school. Your garden looks like it's doing great.

  2. The pool party looks so nice. Hope you'll have a great summer!

  3. Those peonies are gorgeous and yay for a pool party! I'm a summer baby as well, and used to love celebrating with a pool or lake day <3

  4. What a fun pool party!!! I was so sad the kids didn't really get a great Grade 6 graduation this year :( My son's friend had had to postpone his birthday party three times (since April) so they boys did all get together to play bubble soccer last weekend and it felt like marking the end of Grade 6 to all of us so that was fun!


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
