Saturday marked my 37th year of wondering this earth. I spent it quietly with just my little family. Well excluding the eldest who wrapped up his tent on Thursday and made his way out to White Mountain Music Festival. And not including the morning where we made our way out to celebrate Garren’s friends birthday. But I had the rest of the day with my little crew to celebrate quietly.
There was no cleaning up or making beds or cooking. The boys packed the dishwasher and Rob cooked our meal outdoors on the braai which we served with fresh salad and finished off with toasted marshmallows. It was hot.. so unseasonably hot… that there was also swimming for just the boys, that is, as I am still all punctured up. They keep teasing that If I had to climb in with them I would fill up like a ball and they would bounce me around.
And then Sunday….. well that was just as lazy…. because it was still my birthday weekend, you see. Left overs and more pool time and completing the last projects for the school term.
Let’s hope the heat and the laziness that has taken over me will slowly melt away before the week is in full swing……
