A Day In The Life Of A Homeschooler

I wanted to get an early start today, so I was up and sorting my clean clothes which had been piled on the foot of the bed. That was at 7:15 to around 7:30. After that, I trooped into the kitchen and filled up the pitchers of rain water. I like to surprise my Mom when she wakes up sometimes, so I filled up the ice trays she had left on the bench the night before. I went outside and filled up the pitcher with water from the tank water tap; my Mom prefers rain water. πŸ™‚

I cooked some oatmeal (porridge) and by that time Mom and Dad and my brothers and everyone else were awake and ready to leave for school/work.

For some horribly horrible reason, my arm started hurting near my shoulder. When I moved it a lot of pulled or lifted heavy things, it hurt. It doesn’t hurt as much now, though.

My Mom moved some furniture around the house and my brother and I had a quick game of soccer and basketball. The soccer game was shocking play. I mean I was terrible goalie and so was my brother. πŸ˜›

Then I went ahead and did my school, then I remembered it was Thursday. And you guys know what Thursdays hold for you? Yup! Thursday Cookups! πŸ˜€ Well, I have been slacking of the past few weeks… Y’ know, I didn’t post for it….*tries to hide shame* But today I made a really quick and easy meal.

Sorry for the bad quality. This was taken on a phone. I can’t use my camera because I don’t know how to put the photos from it onto my laptop. I’ll find out soon. πŸ™‚

You’re probably wondering, “Whaaaat? Of all the things to cook, why broccoli?”

Well, for one, I happen to like broccoli. For another, I had no idea of anything else to cook, and for a third thing, it was quick and easy and that’s what we had in the fridge. πŸ˜‰

I’ve always wanted to cook fancy things that are always hard to make, but my Mom came up with the idea, so I took it. I cut up the two broccoli heads we had, and chucked them into the stir fry pan. I made the mistake of not sauteing the onion and garlic first, so I got some more into a separate pan and fried them till they were brown. Then I added them in. I fried it with butter. I added soy sauce, a little bit of chicken broth that my Mom made (I have no idea why I did that; I just did. Don’t judge XD ), salt and sesame oil. It was actually pretty good!

My brother ran to my Mom and said, “Mom, can you make more of the broccoli stuff? It’s really good! Superb! Amazing! Fantastically deliciously delicious!”

Ok, so I added in the last 5 words. But he really liked it. So I guess that’s a bonus for me! It was pretty good, if I do say so myself. πŸ˜‰

After that, I ate my masterpiece, cleaned up a little after myself and now I’m sitting on this beanbag surrounded by books with the sun streaming in the window behind me.

chat with me!.jpgHow was your day?

Do you like broccoli?

Do you think I should make a TAG version of Define That Word?


Don’t forget to do the Define That Word! If you’re wondering why you saw it up already before, it’s because I popped it back into edit so that a few more people could have a chance to play. πŸ™‚ See ya! And also, don’t expect to find secret messages in every post, because unfortunately, there won’t be one in every post. :/ But, there may be one in this post! πŸ˜‰ And I will soon post my June Goals and May Recap. Ok, see ya!

Yes, I changed my sign off again. I think I like it WAY better than the other one. Do you? πŸ™‚


Thursday Cookups #1

Hi everyone and happy Thursday! I finally got to cooking at around 2:30, and finished at around 5:20. It always takes me that long to cook things. πŸ˜› Today’s cooking consisted of my singing, our occasional arguing, silliness and us messing up the kitchen. But the turnout? Well, keep reading to find out! πŸ™‚
