Happy Friday! This week has been interesting. Lets back up to Monday. I decided to be productive and after a lovely yoga in the park session I started to paint our front door. Like anything it is never as quick as I think it will be but more on that later in a DIY post. Sneak peek:
Tuesday I wanted to finish said door BUT Mother Nature had much bigger plans. Storms do not scare me but after seeing a lot of hype on social media with scary hail I went on watch. Around 8pm I was on my deck taking these photos:
When everything went really calm and the sun came out. I thought the storm passed over us when a weird noise started. It was a high pitched whistling that Chad could hear even in the basement. But no wind and no train. I went into our basement to tell Chad and by the time I was back into the kitchen there was golf ball sized hail nailing the house. It sounded like someone was throwing baseballs at our house. I watched as our cars were both pounded L After about 10 minutes it stopped and I went out to grab some of the hail.
Our cars did not fare well. But that is why we have insurance and they are 110% driveable. Our house has only minor damage we think and again if needed we have insurance. Others had their vehicles and houses smashed WAY worse. So we are thankful.
You can see some damage here, there are these dents all over our vehicles.
That night we had another wicked storm that came through with the loudest thunder I have ever heard! And Avery? Slept through it ALL.
So that was our weekly excitement. Not much else to report this week, more door painting, and more rain.
Onto the meal plan, next week we are on a little staycation so I have more time to cook – woot woot!
Saturday – Mexican Three Bean Salad & chicken smokies – Belle of the Kitchen
Sunday – Out, my Mom’s birthday supper
Monday – Thai Crunchy Chicken Lettuce Wraps (we will sub out the regular wraps) – Tastes better from Scratch
Tuesday – Chicken Pesto Pasta – source – Current favourtie in our house!
Wednesday – Sweet Potato Black Bean Quinoa Bowls – Recipe Runner
Thursday – Edamame Quinoa Salad with grilled cheese – The Girl Who Ate Everything
Friday – Pizza night!
This weekend will kick off our staycation! Tomorrow I have a 10km race and there is a local parade at the same time so we will probably spend time around there. Sunday we have my Mom’s birthday supper and very little plans besides that. With the weather these days I have no idea what to expect so am playing it day by day.
