Runs for Cookies: Friday Evening Images

I all the time attempt to bear in mind to take images all through the week as a result of I like utilizing them for Friday Evening Images. These posts act sort of like a journal for me; the entire stuff that does not slot in throughout the remainder of the week mainly will get thrown onto Friday Evening Images. It normally is not till Friday night time that I understand I did not take as many footage as I assumed! And I am virtually embarrassed to submit the photographs from this week as a result of they’re SO not fascinating, haha. Nevertheless, there may be an replace on the ducklings, which is value it!

On Monday, we lastly received to prepare dinner on the grill and and hang around with the youngsters. All people was off work, there was no baseball, and we had good climate. Noah and Eli invited their girlfriends over and Jerry cooked burgers on the grill. After dinner, we performed cornhole. Eli is absolutely good at it, and he and his companion received each recreation (we switched groups a few occasions). Are you able to consider how grown up the boys look? (Noah’s on the left and Eli is on the proper.) 

Final 12 months someday, I wrote about how irritating it was to get my children to place away their laundry. On the suggestion of a number of readers, I gave every of them their very own hamper for clear garments and I made a decision to cease asking them to place away garments.

They’re answerable for their very own laundry–from soiled, to the washer, to the dryer, to their hamper of their bed room. In the event that they select to place the garments away, superior. If not, they’ll put on wrinkled garments 😉  I needed to go in Eli’s room the opposite day and I noticed his clear garments; this went precisely how I anticipated! (There really is a hamper below there.)

The cats have been loving the hotter climate. I have been opening the home windows when it is good outdoors and all 4 of them hunt down a window to in entrance of. Watching the “kittens” is humorous; they each transfer their heads utterly in sync once they see one thing transfer or they hear a noise.

And that is the previous woman part…

Phoebe’s fur isn’t trying nice. (Does not it make you wish to rub her stomach, although?) Ever since we noticed the vet and discovered about her kidney illness, she simply hasn’t appeared her greatest. However she’s consuming! I purchased SO many various flavors, textures, manufacturers, and varieties of moist cat meals to attempt to get Phoebe to eat and I lastly discovered one which she loves (it is a creamy shrimp soup for cats–so spoiled!). She will not eat anything. She appears joyful, though–she’s gotten a TON of additional consideration and he or she’s basking in it. 

I’ve no reminiscence of taking this picture beneath, so I am considering both Jerry did it himself or one of many children used my telephone to get an image of Jerry. No concept! However I figured I would embody it.

Noah’s girlfriend received very sunburned in a Memorial Day parade and I assumed it was cute that he was placing aloe on her burns.

It was 96 levels at Eli’s baseball recreation the opposite day and I felt so dangerous for the gamers. I am positive the warmth bothers the mother and father greater than it does the gamers, however I’m “that” mother who worries in regards to the children being miserably scorching. Eli is a catcher, so he has to put on the entire catchers’ gear as effectively.

A couple of years in the past, my mother advised that I soak a washcloth with chilly water, put it in a Ziploc bag, after which right into a cooler with ice. On the recreation, Eli can use the ice chilly washcloth to chill his face and head. It made me take into consideration how completely wonderful that will be to have whereas operating a race. After I ran my first marathon and the warmth index was over 100, I’d have paid in all probability $300 for considered one of these! 

I am solely mentioning it right here as an concept in case anybody has a summer season race; you probably have somebody watching your race, they might maintain onto it for you and provides it to you once you run by. Then you may simply discard the (low-cost) washcloth afterward. After I ran the Rockford Half Marathon, somebody was handing out chilly moist sponges and “heavenly” does not even start to explain how good it felt to squeeze ice water on my head.

This was on the insanely scorching baseball recreation. It was a district recreation and so they performed on very nice fields. They received the sport, in order that they transfer on within the district event tomorrow, the place they will play two video games. I am actually hoping that it is a cooler day!

I used to be engaged on my weblog submit a few days in the past and Phoebe needed on my lap so badly. I lastly let her up, and he or she was not joyful that I used to be nonetheless typing as an alternative of petting her. So this was her resolution:

Bear in mind this random, spontaneous buy I made on the thrift retailer? Jerry had advised me that it will be a waste of $2 as a result of the cats would not use it. I figured even when they solely used it a few times, it was effective. Properly, they nonetheless love this factor! Phoebe does not use it, however Estelle and the kittens do on a regular basis. The opposite day, it was collapsed on the ground and Estelle did not let that preserve her from making her manner inside.

I purchased a field of rotini and once I opened it, I discovered an odd shock… rigatoni! (Did you assume I used to be going to say pantry moths? haha!) It wasn’t only a single noodle, both. They have been combined all through the field. I opened the second field I would purchased and it was the identical. Odd, however pasta is pasta.

I made this “Vegan Grain Bowl” from EatingWell.com and holy smokes–it was SO GOOD. The parts are very simple–just roasted candy potatoes, quinoa, chickpeas, and avocado–but the dressing is what makes it wonderful. It is made with olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper. 

It tasted like garlicky hummus and jogged my memory of La Pita, my favourite center japanese restaurant–it’s been manner too lengthy since I have been there. This dressing tasted like their hummus and garlic sauce combined collectively. Yum!

And eventually, listed here are some footage of the ducklings! My mother and father nonetheless have them, and I am assuming they are going to stick with them till they’re able to fly away. If that is what Jerry and I’ve to look ahead to sometime, signal me up! 😉

I believe this image is hilarious. My dad is simply chillin’ within the yard watching the ducklings of their swimming pool.

Have a fantastic weekend! xo
