My kids sure delivered on today's CY365 prompt (starts with C)! Constantly crafting and Crayola chalk. :) They coloured salt with chalk and then layered it in jars to hold pencils, paint brushes, etc. Thanks YouTube. (They're constantly making messes, too!)
Not a great picture, but it speaks to the week ahead. Both Neil and I have extremely full schedules this week, so I've prepared my favourite tuna salad which will be the base of my packed lunch for the next four days. I made two other favourites, as well: roasted root vegetables and butternut squash pudding (the recipe says "porridge" but I eat it as a snack or dessert). That's a lot of cooking on top of the other work I did today! Totally worthwhile, though.
Dash has become extremely determined to go with us whenever we leave the house. He slips out the door lightning fast! If it's just a short trip and I know someone can stay in the vehicle with him, I'll let him come along.
My 3 coworkers and I enjoyed a fun team-building event this afternoon. We had a one-hour tennis lesson and then played for 40 minutes. We could have played longer, but it was quite hot and humid at the time (humidex of 37C or 99F).
Did I say something about having more free time (in my last recap)? Ha ha. This block of time included my summer holidays - which was great timimg, but they weren't very restful or productive in terms of house projects. Fun things were still happening, though... Pollyanna, backyard trampoline camping, and swimming lessons, to name a few.

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of
to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
to leave the world a little better;
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is the meaning of success.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
