thank goodness for Tuesday

I can't believe how busy my weekend turned out to be.
It was all fun but by Tuesday,
yep, I know that is not during the weekend,
I had to cancel a lunch date so I could have some
down time before I started work for the week.
All two days of it!

First off, Friday night I went to ten pin bowling
with the church youth group. Very energetic.
Followed by supper afterwards at Burger King.
We were joined by another group from out of town
 and they have now challenged
our kids to a table tennis match later in the year.
So we will travel to their place and join them
 for tea and an evening of fun,
most probably in the third term.

Then came Saturday. The morning was the usual housework and getting the washing out seeing as it was a fine day, sort of.
Saturday afternoon?
Well...the Sunday School was having a masterchef cook off.
And I'm a Sunday School mentor so down
I went and the kids arrived at 2pm.
So much fun. Three teams of three.
The youngest was 4 and the eldest 11.

The kids cooked up a storm.
First up was the cupcake challenge.
Everything made from scratch, and then decorated.
Lots of yummy things to put on top.

                            Then came the pizza challenge.
Once again they made the base from scratch
and then put on the toppings.
Popped it into the oven and 20 minutes later -
magic. Three delicious pizzas.

We had three judges, and the kids had
 to present their goodies to the judges, just like the real thing..
They just loved it, lots of excitement.
They all received a certificate for taking part
and the winning team received 
 the 'Golden Rolling Pin', our masterchef trophy,
and a white apron each.

Then on Sunday there was church and in the afternoon
 I filled in a shift at work.
Monday I took my little mother and a friend to a soup and sandwich lunch, really yummy,
 preceded by an interesting speaker.

So by the time Tuesday came all I really wanted
was to spend some quiet time at home.
So I did.

Enjoy your week, whatever you are doing.

    "We sat in the garden, I indolently reading...
    We had the best display of flowers yet seen--
    wall flowers in profusion, columbines, phlox, and...huge scarlet poppies."
