Five on Friday

Tomorrow is Teacher’s Appreciation Day. I had tons of things to do. I spent the whole weekend reading book. The mystery books always keep me on hold. I cannot do other things until I finish the book. I made the mistake when I started reading “Hickory Dickory Dock” of Agatha Christie Friday night.  When I finished the book Sunday evening then I remembered about the jobs I had to finish. Anyway, after dropping kiddo at school today, I rushed back home, and first job was to clean and mop the garage, as it was going to be my workstation for rest of the day. First I sat to make a decorative box, from cardboard box. It took almost entire morning. My next job was to make Teacher Appreciation door decor.  I didn’t have much supplies to do that, so I decide to write a beautiful quote on the paper, and that took me forever. In the meantime I went to school to pick him. Then after coming back again I sat down again with the decor. At last around 6:30 in the evening I finished everything, and went to school to put the decor on the door. I had been sitting in the garage since morning, still I felt so exhausted in the evening.

Again in the morning I was on rush. I was supposed to bake a cake for the teacher. I realized that would take whole lot of time in the morning, and I had not that much time in hand. Before packing the cake , it should cool down. So, I decide to bake muffin, which would take much less time to be baked. So, the morning was for to make breakfast for the family, make lunch and pack for Mr. Man, and son, bake muffins for teacher, pack the gift for her. I finished everything within eight. Then after coming back from school, I cleaned the entire house, which was on big mess, as I didn’t clean since Friday.

Today I got a time to have a little rest. I had not much things to do. I took a long walk today. Long walk in the morning always makes me happy.

It was another busy day. After all cooking, exercising, and walking in the morning I went to several stores. Lastly went to mall before picking my son from school. After buying one gift card for an upcoming birthday invitation, I stroll around the mall trying to remember what else I need to buy. Then I thought  spending less money would be wise. So, I went to school. Kiddo wanted to go to library, as he wanted to rent “Peanuts” collection. He is huge fan of “Peanuts” . Even he is trying to play the “Peanuts” theme song in violin. Then after coning back I remembered  I wanted to go to “Bath and Body Works” in the mall, as I had some coupons.

Till date I didn’t get a relaxing Friday. My Fridays are always super busy. Today was no exception. I finished half of my chores before dropping my son to school before eight. Fridays he has to go early for the Run Club. I took along walk. From walk again I went back to school to volunteer. Then I finished rest of the chores. After lunch went to Costco shopping. After picking him from school, putting away all grocery haul, baking bread, at last I got time to sit in the late evening. Phew!

Hi, You did a great job on the teacher's gifts and door. I'm sure she was touched by your creative skills and thoughtfulness. I hope you'll have a nice Mother's Day weekend....maybe a nice walk to enjoy spring's beauty. The pink rose photo is lovely.
