Weekending: V

"Weekending. My favorite part of the week. A time to relax, live, love, just be. ~ Amanda" 

Linking up with Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise

Parade, candy, red white and blue.
"Look, all da horsies!"
She surprises us by making friends with five year olds,
pretend pony conversations
and stickers and bubbles for hours.
A rough morning afterwards
with a tired mama trying
to care for an exhausted toddler.
Encouraging words help restart
the day, despite a first (almost failed) attempt
at baking a tres leches cake,
ending on a good note with a going-away party
for a European friend,
complete with freshly made, to-die-for fajitas.
Church, special lunch with family,
the usual on Sunday.
Then a friend from far-away visits,
an unusual occurrence,
which necessitates a trip to Ted Drewes!
All good occasions are marked
with food in this household, it seems.
To top off the weekend, "little brother"
visits one last time before leaving for more
summer rambles, and we sing
songs from Pirates of Penzance
while cooking in the kitchen.
