These last seven days were eventful. The girl made her first hand-made Mother’s Day present for me (with a little help of course.) It was a plate with her handprints on it. Maybe I’ll take a photo of it next week. She also picked flowers on a nature walk and gave them to me. As you can see, I proudly displayed them in a Moe’s kiddie cup.
We went to the Renaissance Festival for Mother’s Day. There was a big group of us set to go, but it just ended up being the hubby, the girl and me. Honestly, it was perfect that way. No drama and no worrying about other people. And the girl did great walking around for most of the day.
I picked out garden presents for her school/daycare teachers. I wanted something small they could enjoy without too much effort. Being caretakers, I thought they would enjoy the small cactus pots. Easy to maintain over the summer. They were so pretty, too.
And…I cried on the last day of the girl’s school. It’s all so bittersweet. Yea, I’m a sap.
Oh! I’ve officially learned to cook salmon in a way I like it. Sear in a pan for 3-4 minutes on each side, then bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cooks the salmon through, but keeps it from getting dry. Top it with this Very Very Teriyaki sauce I picked up at the store and it is delish! I’ve had it twice in less than three days!
Any bittersweet events for you last week?0
