Even if I work from home, I still look forward to weekends and I often spend my weekend at home. A weekend is a time to bond with family. My cousins often come over just to catch up with our lives. I also keep my Skype on to chat with friends. I watch videos to update myself with my favorite TV shows. My weekends are really meant for relaxation and a quiet time at home with family.
For the past two weekends, we had a cute visitor. And he was fascinated with our pink broom and dustpan! Look at his face. He really enjoyed sweeping the floor. We indulged him. We know that there will come a time that he will not like picking up a broom anymore.
Yesterday, he visited us again. We got him a gift. This is a belated Christmas gift. I did not get him anything for Christmas because I did not see a nice gift with my budget. So what I did is to ask my cousin to chip in to get this gift. Clever, huh?
I realized that because we have the little one every week, the upkeep of the house should be up to standard. He loves rolling and crawling on the floor. There have been studies that crawling enhances the child’s brain development. For that to happen, we have to keep our floor thoroughly clean when he is around. It is nice to have a vacuum cleaner that can do the work without disrupting the peace and quiet the weekend brings. Electrolux has that particular product. Check out Ultra Silencer Green!
Another activity that relaxes me during the weekend is chit-chatting with my aunts. We prepare snacks together and this weekend, I had the time to do the food experiments. I tried new recipes this week- chocolate chip cookies and kutsinta. I also made the old favorites: Pinoy spaghetti (yes, with ketchup and hotdogs) and pancakes (I went overboard with the chocolate sauce).
While my aunt was eating the chocolate chip cookies, she had one criticism. She said that her snacks would have been perfect if it was paired with a shake. I actually inherited a 5-piece appliance system from my mother which includes a blender. Because it is a 5-in-1 thing, I have to assemble the blender for every use. When I want a relaxing weekend, I am not too crazy to do that. Clean up is also cumbersome. And because this is a bonding activity at home, we talk while prepare the food. The blender is not really a quiet appliance to deal with unless, of course, if we have the Powermix Silent Blender. If I have this blender, I’d be happy to prepare my aunt’s favorite fruit shakes.dwellingbydesign.blogspot.com via Erica on Pinterest Nuffnang Contest.
