It is sooooo cold out these days. It takes a lot of brain power and energy to keep everyone entertained on these long cooped-up Winter weekends.
I experimented with making Quinoa cookies.
There was a blind taste test to see if they could pick out the secret ingredient. Littlest guessed, “pepper.” Biggest guessed, “I have no idea, but did you bake any regular chocolate chip cookies?” Tom guessed, “A little weird, but I’ll still eat them.”
We drew fake animal wounds on arms with liquid eyeliner and other old makeup from my drawer (and then posed for pictures).
I talked Littlest in having a sketching session with me, partially to force myself to draw too.
My copy of Down to Earth finally came and I read it from cover to cover. Le sigh… I want to run away from suburbia and raise chickens on a farm, except I don’t really like chickens and I suck at gardening.
Oh to be Charlie for a day…
We had some nice quiet moments, petting animals…
And cross stitching.
And some rowdy ones.
I love my little family.
