Five on Friday

Monday:


Till yesterday the weather was really fine. It was not at all cold, but pleasantly warm. We two worked a lot in our backyard, from planting to cleaning up pool. However, Mr. Sun had other idea in his mind.Today, since morning he had been blazing. I woke up 5:30 in the morning, and could feel that it already stared heating up outside. When I took my son to school, it was really hot. After a long time I went walking after dropping him to school. To avoid heat, I didn’t waste time in school chatting with other moms. Right after dropping him, I went to walk. Still I came back really burring. Rest of the day was more or less same. I finished a long list of chores.

Can you find me out?


Tuesday:


Today was National Teacher’s Day. I kept the gift ready for my son’s grade teacher. But, he was very tardy since he woke up today morning. Each and every moment I had to push him to get things done. In that course, I totally forgot to take the gift. On the top of that I didn’t tell my son that we had to take the gift with us. So, he also couldn’t remind me. When we reached school, I saw gifts on everyone’s hand, then I remembered. Anyway, I had my volunteer duty in the mid morning. So, I took the gift with at that time, and he gave it to his teacher.

Gift for teacher


Wednesday:


One of my friends asked me to sew a bag from old jeans. I always enjoy when my friends ask me to make something for them. After doing all the chores I had one hour. So, I sat down with the bag, I was so engrossed in sewing, that I forgot that I decided to go to thrift store to donate few thing, before going to pick my son from school. When I finished the bag, it was time to pick him up. First I decided to skip that chore, but I had many things to on next day. So, I went there while coming back from my son’s swimming class.

Thursday:


I went to take a walk in the morning. Before going I decided to finish all the chores. So, I was little late. Around 9:15 I went. It was so hot, and scorching, I came back with black tan, tough I put generous amount of sunscreen. Then, today I had lots of shopping to be done. I went to four stores to finish all the shopping. I felt that, I had been traveling on a”Hop-on Hop-off” tourist bus. Lastly when I was in Walmart, it was almost the time to pick my son from school. I yet to pay the money in the counter. I called my best friend to stay for few minutes more for my son. However, I managed to come back home, unload all the shopping, and finally reached the school just in time.

Friday: 


Another super busy Friday just went by. At least today I didn’t have volunteer duty in school. Friday morning my son usually goes to school with Mr. Man. So, I was at home the entire morning. I did all the jobs from cooking, cleaning, two loads of laundry. The I sat down to sew one bag. I had been nurturing a style of a bag in my mind for a long time. Though I couldn’t finish it today, but I think I could make it according to my idea. Then I went to pick my son from school. The day yet to be finished. After that we took kiddo to his Kung Fu class. Nope, not the end, still the Costco shopping to be finished. Then, after coming home I could at last sit after putting away the groceries, folding the laundry. The super busy day ended at last.

It certainly sounds like you have full, busy days. When my boys were in school and I was working, I was always on the go. But now that they are in college and I'm home, I make sure my days are as unbusy as possibly. :) Have a good weekend.

Your backyard is so very pretty. That is a fun photo of the duck visiting the swimming pool. I like the cards you made for your son's teacher - so colorful. Have a great weekend. xo

How nice that you made a bag for your friend. I also think it was very nice to recognize your son's teacher. Teachers are so under appreciated these days. Janice

When it's hot outside, it's difficult to talk yourself into taking a walk. Good for you to keep it up!

Thanks for sharing your week & pics of your lovely yard, Krishna.
The duck showed good taste in choosing your beautiful pool in which to cool off!

I reckon a coffee card is a perfect gift for a teacher - luckily we didn't have this day when my kids were at school, it would have been later than mid morning when I'd have got my act together I can tell you!
