This was our breakfast this morning--lemon poppyseed bread. It tasted good enough to have been made from scratch, but I have to be honest and say that I had a little help from Betty Crocker. :) Last week there was a buy one/get one free special on bread mix, plus I had a coupon, so each box only cost me about 50 cents. Mixing a bit of the glaze with some butter made for a delicious spread.
Things were pretty normal around our house today. We finished with our lessons by lunchtime, so the kids enjoyed having a couple of hours to play outside this afternoon. I really wanted to sit down on the porch with a good book, but I knew that I needed to tackle my ironing basket instead. All of the clothes have been put away, and the laundry room looks tidy once again. Bookworm has been begging me to teach her how to use the iron. I think I was about 12 years old when I starting doing my own ironing. I'm a little bit worried that she'll burn herself, but I guess it's bound to happen eventually. A small aloe plant on the laundry room counter will come in handy if she has an accident. If any of you have any training suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
This evening while Mr. C was out making some church visits the kids and I played a game of Monopoly Jr. Usually I play the "banker", but Bookworm and Mickey Mouse have been taking turns lately. They both enjoy putting their math skills to work. We've spent a lot of evenings playing board games lately. Lil' Nut is big enough now to play along with us. Notice the thumb in her mouth; we're working on that. :)
My book and I are headed for a bubble bath. Multi-tasking! :)
