12 of 12: A day in November 2023

Today, on the 12th of November, I document the day with 12 photos. Thank you to Caro for keeping this bloggers’ tradition alive.

It’s Sunday. But not a normal Sunday. My son is at my place and I have a lot of plans: fly a kite, visit my father, spend time on relaxing and being lazy. Work. Play. Do homework.

See how it went 😅.

1/12: First thing in the morning, I check the posts I published before I went to bed yesterday. They promote my blog parade on microaggressions. Not too bad. I know I could have done more, but I didn’t have the resources.
2/12: After this, I go back to bed and cuddle with my son. How often will this happen until he finds it awkward?
3/12: Finally, my son decides to get up. “Can you prepare pancakes?” he asks. Of course! 😋
4/12: Before I forget it, I send a request to my brother who stays in Taipei currently. Can he bring me this from Taiwan? I use this plastic-free sponge for taking showers and cleaning dishes.
5/12: I receive a question for my birthday party in 2024. Guests with little children want to know months in advance if they can bring their children.
6/12: As promised yesterday, I prepare sweet popcorn with tons of sugar for the movie session 😅.
7/12: The perfect day for my son 😁.
8/12: After the movie, I decide not to go out to fly the kite, since there is no wind. Instead, I build this hot wire game set I have bought some weeks ago in the hope that my son would like it 😅.
9/12: After playing not too enthusiastically with the hot wire game, my son does some homework. He has to learn this Irish song by heart. We argue. I feel guilty I didn’t went to see my father. I am frustrated we didn’t go hiking.
10/12: Finally, we manage to go out and take a walk.
11/12: The ice cream parlour has already closed for the winter season. But this year, they have set up a vending machine with their artisan ice cream 😋. After my son has eaten the ice cream, we practice the song’s lyrics while walking on the riverbank.
12/12: After coming home, I start to cook dinner. Suddenly, I hear my son’s giggles. He turns off the light and starts to play spooky music he has composed on the toy keyboard. I love his creativity ❤️.
