A Peaceful Sunday


Today was a good Sunday. Everyone went to Church, and everyone left in a good mood (even if they were hungry and tired).  That is my definition of a good Sunday! I really enjoyed church, too. There were good talks, a good lesson I taught with the good class (my core group of 4 were all there), and a fun Sharing time and Singing time. It was all good. I really do love my class! Next Sunday we’ve been invited to a lunch with the parents of one of my students as a thank you. The older child is Gryffindor’s BFF and my student is friends with Ravenclaw. And Hufflepuff won’t be with us, so she won’t feel left out.

kale smoothieOnce we got home it was time for Veggie Tales, hot dogs, and gf Mac & Cheese from Trader Joe’s. Then I got to take a short nap while Veggie Tales parented for a little while.

My prompts today were for abandoned (I took a picture of our Christmas tree) and breakfast. My breakfast was a kale smoothie, and I think the picture was really cool. I like the bubbles and the green.

SushisFor dinner, though, I made sushi. I had some free time while Hufflepuff was studying Chemistry with some of the other girls in her class, so I worked on it. The Chosen One had given me a sushi kit, and I finally had enough time to work on it. Sunday afternoons are the best! The first sushi roll didn’t go well, to put it mildly. But, after the first one, it came right back to me like riding a bike. :) I hadn’t made sushi in probably 6 or 7 years, but the muscle memory was there.

I had forgotten to buy shrimp, so I made all vegetable sushi. Some avocado and cucumber, some just cucumber, some cucumber & carrot, and some cucumber, carrot, and avocado. (Ravenclaw isn’t a huge avocado fan, so had to make some without avocado for her). Next time I’ll make the shrimp California rolls. Oh, and next time I’ll make sure I have gluten-free soy sauce!

Hufflepuff had a meeting for the JCs of Girls’ Camp, and I drove her and 2 other girls out there. I’ve volunteered to help in the kitchen this summer, so I’ll finally see some of all the stuff the girls love! As much as I love Children’s Island, I’m also wishing I could’ve gone to Girls’ Camp! Hufflepuff looks forward to shooting guns at targets, and the only way she can do that is at Girls’ Camp. She’s not likely to go target shooting around here – we’re pretty anti-gun.

Tomorrow is Aquarium Day! And then Tuesday is the walk-through for the house, Wednesday is the closing, and Thursday is the headache specialist. Big week!
