Strawberry Breakfast! On cream cheese and an English muffin. Oh, drizzled with honey. Very important little detail. I have to pause and say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mr. Andrew -- he is celebrating a birthday this week. We're hoping this weekend to be able to get into 'The Avengers', if the hordes have diminished a bit.
The weather was AWESOME this week. Near 80 for several days. I was so happy just to be...warm. Andrew said he's ready for Autumn to return. I gave him a little kick. Our baby peas and beans sprouted and Julia flipped out with excitement. My beets have little sprouts but I think the carrots are not doing anything. I planted them in March, I think something should be happening by now. I wonder what I did wrong??? Maybe I needed to plant them earlier when it was still frosting at night. Pickle.
COOL STUFF, of the mid-May variety (lots of foodie items this week)....
Mini doll houses made from mint tins. BRILLIANT.
LOVE this doll house poster that you can color in.
I got this 2-pack of tops for Julia. They're listed in the sleepwear section, but she wears them as tanks.
Lemon Turnovers from my beloved Trader Joe's. (they are awesome.)
Cool Book of the Week: A book for the older kiddos today, good for ages 8+. 'The Penderwicks' is a light, old-fashionedy tale about four sisters (aged 4 thru 12) who spend the summer with their father in a cottage situated on the edge of a huge country manor house estate. They befriend the little boy who lives in the giant house and have loads of fun, while staying out of the way of his fancy-pants mama.
This one is just right for summer! Just in case anyone doubts my love for children's books -- ask me what I'm reading right now. THIS BOOK. I read children's books all the time, for reals. Andrew laughs at me, he's like what are you reading??? To which I say, A KID'S BOOK. What of it? Huh?
HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND! Felt like shouting that at you. I feel excited for summer, even though it's a month away...
