What did I do this week?
I watched rain fall, which is a blessing, considering how dry it’s been here for the last month.
I made English Muffins, which I haven’t done in eons.
I got rained on while grilling hamburgers.
I made two batches of blueberry jam.
I soaked in the uber-domestic feeling that floods my soul when I view Mason jars full of homemade goodness.
I helped Joshua and Lisey practice their flutter-kicking.
Zoe practiced too.
Sonia just practiced looking cute.
I made dinner lots of times.
I was reminded yet again that water holds endless appeal for children.
The girls played with their soapy water for at least two hours. Love it.
I made chocolate parfait bars in a 9×13 pan and decided I prefer them in a jelly roll pan, even if it is harder to spread the crust, filling, and frosting in a larger pan.
I made the executive decision to bump Chicken Tacos to next week’s menu, and instead I fed my children miscellaneous stuff from the fridge (leftover dip, crackers, raspberries, cucumbers, carrots, and English Muffins spread with blueberry jam.).
Then I sent them off to play and I ate sushi with Mr. FG. It was blissfully peaceful.
Did I mention the rain?
I made a blueberry coffeecake (and blueberry muffins and blueberry pancakes. Because it’ll be another year before we have 20 pounds of blueberries again!).
So, that’s a peek into the parts of my week that my camera captured. What filled your days this past week?
