We’re half way through the week and things are going well. Today started off with a cup of tea and a crossword puzzle while the princesses slept in! (Surprise!)
10:00 a.m. – They’re both up!!! They got up by themselves and quietly came down and got their own breakfasts. We ran out of milk so we had a lovely walk to the store to get some. It is a warm sunny day and we are looking forward to our barbeque later on.
11:00 a.m. – They are peacefully playing school – Japanese school – and I am going to surprise them as Mrs. Lema, the grouchy principal!!!
Noon – Whoa! That worked well. Their mouths were hanging open. They couldn’t believe I went to a Japanese shop in Montreal to buy a kimono. Monica, my youngest daughter is picking us up soon for the barbeque at her work. She and her husband are physicists who work for a high-tech company that makes optical filters. It’s the annual outdoor cook-out where families come together. There will be games for the kids, a pinata, kite flying, and lots of prizes.
3:00 – It was a great success. The kids all had a good time and Monica’s colleagues were very friendly and welcoming. More than a few of them commented on how much Monica and I look alike. Owen and Brynn, two of my other grandchildren, were there as well.
5:00 p.m. – We are going out for dinner to Bambu, an Asian food restaurant. It was supposed to be just my two daughters and me but circumstances changed and we are bringing along Amelia and Enid.
9:00 p.m. – We are back and Enid is in bed already. We had a wonderful time. The food was great and there was lots of it! I couldn’t believe how eager Enid was to try different foods. She even tried and liked wasabi, which is very spicy!
It was a good way to end the day. I have a couple of things planned for tomorrow. Hope the day goes well.
Happy 62nd birthday to my sweet sister, Helen!
