This gloomy, wet long weekend, we:
:: Reached our internet download limit, which meant switching off the computers for a few days - unusually pleasant;
:: Bid a weepy airport farewell to my big sis and her family as they left for two years in Singapore;
:: Welcomed our latest houseguests - a few dozen chubby silkworms, over which we have temporary guardianship until the preschool term begins again;
:: Picked mulberry leaves in the rain to feed the houseguests (they don't stop eating!);
:: Watched with fascination as the first of them spun a bright yellow cocoon;
:: Urged the others to follow suit;
:: Made a lumpy-bumpy clafoutis with the beautiful ripe mulberries that came home with the leaves;
:: Had fun at a 4th birthday party catching up with good friends;
:: Kneaded and rolled the dough to make Shanghai dumplings from scratch - and the girls loved them;
Endured Enjoyed no less than two football grand finals.
:: Listened as one little girl mastered how to say (or shout) "I do!" and her sister perfected, "Me too!"
How was your weekend?
