Life, the past few days, as seen on Instagram. Performance week for ballet meant extra rehearsals in Seattle for Grace and lots of extra waiting and driving for me. It didn't bother me though, because downtown Seattle is one of my favorite places to be. A good book on my Nook, a cozy little coffee shop, beautiful tall buildings, lots of interesting people to watch, and I was happy.
This week also brought a close to the school year for my homeschooled daughter. We celebrated with a lunch of chicken curry pies at The British Pantry, an appropriate way to wrap up a year that focused extensively on all things British. My poor son still has more than a week left of school left. I'm tempted to let him skip a day this week. Something makes me think that he won't be missing much. They're just making up snow days right now, cleaning classrooms, and wasting time.
The 30 Day Vegan cleanse has come to an end. I loved it. I came away from the experience with many new recipes that I plan to keep in rotation and I learned a lot. In fact, I think that I will continue eating mostly vegan when at home, perhaps 80/20. I highly recommend Heather's course and would encourage anyone to sign up the next time she offers it.
The week closed with Grace's ballet school performance. She was beautiful. I get all teary eyed when I watch her dance. She has worked incredibly hard to get to where she is and we are proud. She gets a couple of weeks off now, and is off to camp, a well deserved break.
And now it's Father's Day, so I need to get off of the computer and go cook a delicious lunch, to celebrate the wonderful man who is father to my kids.
