Rainy Weekend

April 18, 2010

It’s certainly spring and the rain accompanied the flowers as they bloom…Unlike kids, I don’t enjoy rain much. Surely the kids enjoy thumping about not caring if they get wet…One reason why the bible’s advice to remain a child at heart is a good thing! 😀

Anyway it was a whole week of raining, save for Friday when my daughter had to go to a farm, 1 hour away from school. I wasn’t able to go with them (sayang!)  this time. I only listened to AB’s stories of the sheep running about, the horses and the grasses they eat, the rabbits and their tiny ears and how she carried a lamb on her arms. She also saw ducks in the pond, chickens along with their chicks but they weren’t allowed to touch any much to her disappoinment.

It was a good thing though that she still wore the rainboots we bought the day before, she came home with them full of mud.

AB chose this Hannah Montana rainboots herself. So no matter how much she thumps on water, I wouldn’t worry that her leggings would get wet (hopefully).


Finally, Sunday was as it’s name supposed to be, sunny! I bought some strawberries the other day and decided to make strawberry milkshake but a piece of our blender was missing so I instead make this (tweaked) fruit smoothie. Recipe is here.

—Enjoy the week!—
