Spence slept over at his dad's last night and the animals let me sleep in till nearly 10am - then I got swatted on the head a few times and it was time to get up.

Today was another baking day - madeleines and lemon saffron cookies (which didn't turn out) and I discovered my oven's timer no longer works...almost burnt the madeleines.

Spence came home after lunch and after changing and chatting with his buddies headed over to Jacob's - I got a text near supper - let's all go to Kinjo's - so off we went and then I dropped them off at Jacob's again and I was told I'd be bothered at 3am when they do their Mac's run :)

Not a bad day today, hoping tomorrow is as good or better - finally the cold seems to be letting up - let's hope it's on it's way out.

Still sick, not much going on other than sleeping and trying to get better - oh well - hopefully soon we'll be over the nasty cold and feeling better.

Spoke too soon about feeling better - the cold just keeps coming back.  Went to bed early like Spence and then the cat kept me awake, after Spence handed her off to me.  I've had about 2 hours sleep - think I'm going to need a nap.  In the meantime, I'll let Spence sleep a bit longer to try and allow him some extra sleep and hopefully he'll be all good today.

Spence still has a nasty headache, but managed to do most of what we had for school.  Math, LA worksheets, spelling, reading, printing, essay, livestreaming and a bit of drums - before he figured out it makes his head hurt more :)

We had decided on doubles for dinner - one of our favorites.  I had started it yesterday and finished the curried chickpeas today.  I made the fried bread and we were ready for dinner by 4pm :)

Very chillaxing day - now that I'm starting to feel better, hoping that Spence is good enough for drums tomorrow.

Spence said he was not feeling well, so we brought the pizza home instead of eating out.  Famoso is a new place and it's almost as good as Pulcinella's is in Kensington, a lot cheaper and close to home.

After he had pizza and dessert, we watched some anime together and then he headed off to bed at 7:30pm.  Hoping he feels better tomorrow.

Today is PE day - so other than a few quizzes our plan is to do PE and visit a bit with Bailey and the other kids.

Tonight was dinner with grama - a great catch up at the thai place down the street from us.  Spence and I decided to watch some anime after we got home, I worked a bit while watching and he snuggled with the animals.
Well the darned cold just won't go away, it came back last night with a vengeance and put me to bed early.  Spence has got the start of it I'm sure as he was achey and his head hurt.

I slept in a bit this morning, hoping that along with lots of tea will help get this cold on its way.

Today we have school, I have a doc appt and then we have dinner with grama.

Today the animals let me sleep in till nearly 10am - which was awesome as I really needed it.  My cold is still here, although the ear ache is thankfully gone.  Spence seems to have the start of the cold as well, so hoping this week he is good for his PE class, etc.

I decided it was time to start the baking process for Xmas and I missed having the house smell like baked goods.  Today was pop tarts, cream cheese cookies stuffed with Nutella and french toast sticks.  I was going to make some cake too, but was feeling done by then.

Spence wanted to go buy a video game that was on sale at Best Buy and I had a coupon - so we paid $5 for the video game :)  I also wanted to get a new little box (so we have two) and I wanted one where Karma wouldn't be able to stick her head into and eat the cat litter - she just likes the taste of the cat little brand we bought - ick!

We got home and I continued with laundry, made some matzo ball soup to go with supper, rice and we bought udon noodles to do a stir fry with later on tonight.  Not a bad end to a weekend.
Had a terrific evening with friends and neighbours who came to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of fall with us - everyone brought a dish and we had a terrific time sharing and chatting.  The kids played with the animals, played video games and overall we had a terrific time.
