Five things Friday: Getting out our outdoor dining set

Five things Friday is a post where I share five things that either made my week, what I am thinking about, or would like to share with all of you!

1. Spending my weeknight dinners in the backyard

Daylight is getting longer and the weather has not been too cold or wet. My favorite time of the year is enjoying our meals in the backyard. I love getting our outdoor dining set out on the deck appreciating the extended daylight.

2. Air-fried tofu

Why do I always find making any meal with tofu intimidating? I love my tofu crispy and I have to say that it was pretty easy to make.

3. Nomadland by Jessica Bruder

I finished reading Nomadland. I was in shock on how little these older adults made from social security. They cannot afford to fully retire so they spend their years wandering around America like land pirates chasing the next gig and surviving in their van.

4. Cancel Instagram beauty filters

5. Late bedtime for a mom?

I found out some moms go to bed as early as 8 pm. For me, early is going to bed at 9 pm. Most nights I go to bed at 10:30 pm. I guess that makes me a party animal? But really I spend a good part of my night time ritual reading in bed. If I don’t catch myself I’ll be up until 11 pm or later. Sounds like a wild night!

  1. I’ve had tofu, but never fried or air fryed. Interesting. I’ve mostly had it in stir-fry.

    It’s hard to believe the blogging challenge is almost over for 2021. Then the after survey, reflections, and the road trip sign-up.
    Plus, I’m taking part in the Bout of Books read-a-thon in May. So much excitement!

    1. What is the Bout of Books read-a-thon? Unfortunately I did not participate in the A to Z blogging challenge. I did not have enough time to blog everyday. Maybe I’ll participate next round.
