A Day in My Life

Its holiday time so my days are not fairly typical but my Friday's and Saturday's are pretty much the same.

I will start these 24hrs on Thursday to Friday (with some photos take on Saturday to show what I did on Friday)

Thinking about my busy schedule ahead I decided that I should start off with a good soak and a good book. So that I get can feel rested and refreshed for my day ahead.
First stop for the morning after breakfast was the Library. Need to get stocked up for the road trip next week. My daughter is doing the Library challenge - the theme this year is Space Hop.

Next stop was posting letters and parcels for husband. Also had to do some banking for him.

Now was the excited part of shopping for the morning looking for bargains for our camping and holiday needs - top of the list was a small cooler bag but of course we saw some things that were not on the list as well .........

Jeandre was tired and asked if I would take her home before I went on to the normal grocery shopping.

Finally Home and its time to prepare for Sabbath. Teaching the children's Sabbath School - children from the ages of 3-9 are in the class at church.
then telling the children's story during the main service.
Going out tonight so its going to be quick pizza's in the oven while I make the pasta bake for th next day.

The first item is a basket weave in the shape of a heart - this was tricky but I finally figured it out. If I didn't figure it out I had a game to play as a back up plan.

Photocopied these pages and re-read the instructions to make sure I knew what i need to do the next day.
Breads from different countries Poland, Egypt, Israel, Italy etc.
Always cook my Sabbath (Saturday meal) on a Friday - this week is just for our family of three - no potluck or visitors.
Going to serve garlic bread and veggies (that just need to be microwaved) with it.
Bought a Banoffee (click to go to recipe) for dessert. Saturday lunch is not Saturday (Sabbath) lunch without dessert - its a family tradition

Pasta and Spinach Bake (click here to go to recipe)

Today I have a great treat and Outdoor performance of Pride and Prejudice in our newly re-vamp Solitude park.

Packed some snacks, juice and coffee, met up with friends, had a great laugh and a wonderful night.

Solitude Park - we got there nice and early manged to get good seats close to the front.

Playing cards - Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Charles Bingley

Hilarious Butler - moved the furniture changing the setting slight for the next scene

20min Break - Started getting a bit chilly.

As you can its getting darker and the play is drawing to a close this the scene with Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet

The following morning - A new hairstyle for my daughter

You may be wondering is this my typical Friday - Yeh pretty much - if it was not a play I would be visiting friends or leading a Bible Study or watching one of Favourite Sabbath movies - Fiddler on the roof or Joseph or..........

If I am lucky I would get my shopping done on a Thursday night - so that my Friday would a little more relaxed but if its Pot luck I would be cooking a quite a few other dishes and making dessert.

As it stands I do the children's Sabbath School and a children's Story almost every week because my husband is Pastor of two small churches, its the best way I can be of services and I love doing stuff for the kids. the next month I will not teaching at all - what I am going to do with all that time!!
