I am making an effort to like food. I have been making my own salad dressing recipes this summer. This one is Thai inspired (minus the peanuts due to an allergy). See Instagram hashtags for ingredients ❤️.
I took 2 incomplete grades this last semester as S@$t hit the fan. I only have 2 papers to finish this last semester and get a letter grade in 2 classes, but I have not been able to get my perfectionist self to a place where I can write them as I am not a fan of failure and being incompetent. This last week, a very wise person asked me what would happen if I wrote failing papers. It dawned on me that I would still pass even with bombing these assignments. So as I start to ease up on my expectations of myself I am going to attempt to write 2 crappy papers and see how it goes. On the plus side I’m making this attempt while sitting at the beach.
CHALK PARTY! The North St. Boniface foot bridge will be ready to go by tonight! The family and I will be heading down after supper today (July 9th) to draw and colour with sidewalk chalk on the bridge. If anyone wants to join us there is some sidewalk chalk in it for you! @coolstreetswpg ❤️❤️❤️
I said I wouldn’t do it again, but this year I’ll let others do the colouring. The North St. Boniface foot bridge is transforming into a colouring book and art gallery. Let’s get our kids off the tech and in nature using their imagination!
Change is good. Thanks @misslaceytattoos for being so open to working with me on this ever evolving piece and thanks to @davidmackkabuki for the inspiration of Kabuki. It has helped me focus on survival and transformation at some of the darker points in my life.
I continually tell our boys that being brothers is a gift and a responsibility. You may not always like each other, but if you can get through the fights and arguments you can have a life long friend who cares about you and has your back when you need it. These moments warm my heart. ❤️
This morning my oldest son (on the right) graduated from 6th grade with his buddies. On our way to school this morning he told me he didn’t think he was ready for grade 7. I told him he didn’t have to be ready for it, and that there are so many things in life we all start that we are probably not ready for. I didn’t feel ready to be a mother, but you learn so much as you go. So proud of this kid. ❤️
