I’m feeling very domestic (and a little sore) this morning. After taking Tyler to the skating rink for his birthday last night, I didn’t imagine I’d be doing a whole lot today. Well, since he left this morning to go backpacking, the kids and I had the place to ourselves. SO….we made the most of it.
First, I made up a double batch of Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins in an attempt to use up some of that giant bowl of shredded zucchini in my fridge. These now reside in my freezer and will feed us all week!
Then, WH and I did some basket painting while Helo napped. I’m always looking for activities to keep him quiet so he doesn’t wake up his brother. In this case, it also helped me get something done.
Once Helo was up we went on a walk. We picked up a movie and fresh kettle corn for movie night tonight, yarn for some new hats and corn dogs for lunch!
Back at the house, I actually managed to get BOTH monsters down for a nap and started on the first baby hat! I plan to make one for each of my monsters and another for my brother’s new guy. I spent most of their nap winding the hanks into balls (my least favorite part of knitting) but managed to at least get cast on.
Then it was time for movie night. WH had a couple friends over and we ordered pizza and all was nuts. And it was great. No one had any idea what happened in Tarsem’s “The Fall” because the kids were so loud, but we were able to mildly relax with some wine and none of the kids went home with any serious injuries so we’ll call it a success!
Oh! And I also got some clothes from a friend that ACTUALLY FIT ME! Score.
