The biggest event of the week: the cast is OFF! It was a relatively easy process and pain free. But Sofia is still not walking well…. she walks as if the cast is still on! 😯 well… I guess she’ll have to get used to the new leg for few more days.
I took Friday off to do all the last minutes ME-duties (mani/pedi, massage and hair cut) since Star is leaving on Monday. I won’t be able to do these until his return, hopefully in a month or so.
On saturday, the usual: farmer’s market trip
BBQ: Star had beef steak from WF and I had the chicken breast. Both were delicious! These from WF are more expensive than other stores, but they do taste better.
we didn’t schedule any activity this weekend because we wanted to fully enjoy the family time of three. So Saturday afternoon was spent playing at home
she loves playing the ball.
Sunday: church time
and lunch: both of us have fish, mine grilled, Star’s cooked with a spicy sauce, accompanied by sautéed bok choy and rice porridge
why porridge and not rice? because I wanted to make a porridge for Sofia. Eggplant and beef porridge
since the cast is off, she’s started eating more. Thanks God!!!
she’s obsessed with the bicycle, she wants us to push her around the house, like all the time
in and out
after a long nap for the entire family, Sofia was ready to have some play ground time. She put her shoes all by herself! Wooo!!! I can’t believe it, she can really do it!
while they played, I prepared food for the upcoming week as I won’t have much time cooking. So, for lunch I prepared ingredients for salad: romaine, golden beets, cucumber, tomato, roasted squash, grilled chicken and brown/wild rice.
dressing was made with greek yogurt, honey, dijon mustard and lemon.
for dinner I prepared okara, japanese kabocha, seaweed salad and more brown/wild rice
just as I finished, they arrived home
you can tell that she really enjoyed the alone-time with Star
Dinner: chinese gnocchi with bok choy
I had kabocha, okara, seaweed salad, pickle and purple sweet potato
Sofia had noodles with homemade pomodoro sauce
she finished the bowl 😉
this Monday Star had to say goodbye to us
it was so hard for me to watch Sofia giving kisses to Star, and not knowing that she won’t see her dad for a while again
and I know it was even harder for Star to leave, he really bounded with Sofia this time and loves her even more than before
but it is all for the good of the family and he’ll return in no time. Meanwhile, we will miss him and wait for his return because what makes the happiest is when we are together.
