I feel like my blog has been so boring lately. Maybe it seems like I write about the same old things over and over. Maybe my trivial posts seem so silly when compared to the big things happening in the World. Maybe sometimes I feel like “What’s the point?”
I’m not sure if there is a point to this blog, except that writing it makes me happy, especially when everything outside seems so dark and heavy at the moment. Sigh. Deep thoughts for a Tuesday morning.
The weekend was cold. The highlights were that:
Tom surprised me with flowers for no reason.
Biggest’s school had a swap meet where the kids could rent a table and sell “stuff”. He and I spent one evening making a crapload of dumplings. He made $92 in dumpling sales and was super proud.
I finally nabbed the latest issue of CrossStitcher. By the way, did you hear that Cross Stitch Collection magazine is closing down? Sad.
We went out to dinner and my mashed potatoes looked like they were sprouting. Does anyone know what kind of sprouts those are? They were delicious.
Tom got me a “make it instead of buy it” cookbook for Christmas. It is full of cool recipes for things you can “make instead of buy.” The boys and I decided to try the recipe for pita bread. I made the dough, Littlest rolled it out,
and Biggest fried them.
They were tasty! It was a lot of effort so I don’t know if I would “actually make it instead of buy it” in the future, but it was a fun cold day activity with the kids.
What’s new with you?
