On Thursday, I played soccer for the first time in 12 years. It was a blast! I had a ton of fun even if we did lose 5-4. I went all out and knew at the game I had done some damage to my muscles but didn’t care because of all the fun!! I even went and worked out late Friday night, thinking I should let this slow me down. Fast forward to Saturday, wake up in the morning with limited mobility in my legs. Fast Forward to completing 17kms of a highway clean-up and my legs no longer know what mobility is.
My daughter who recently joined TREX an extra ops group with Girl Guides, had a highway clean up project this weekend. We cleaned and cleaned and cleaned, all 17kms, with approx. 16 ppl. The girls had alot of fun but were very tired by the end of it.
So as a treat after all our hard work, we went out for dinner with the family as we were all to beat to even think about cooking dinner. We went to a new restaurant that we had never been to before called Mini Mango. The food was to die for and they had hands down the best spring rolls I have ever had in my entire life and I have had ALOT of spring rolls. I had the Pho Chay (Vietnamese vegetarian noodle soup), J had Tom Kha See Fuut (Thai coconut seafood soup) and K had the 5 meat (chicken, beef, pork, shrimp and spring rolls) combo bowl w/ coconut rice. Then we all shared that most heavenly dessert – deep fried banana spring rolls in coconut sauce.
All in all it was a wonderful day and tonight we will all get some greatly deserved rest. My rest will consist of a cup of tea and the continued reading of Nomad by Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
