"Project Time"

Man, having 2 kids sure makes it hard to find time to sew! Thus, the introduction of thrice-weekly "project time." I LOVE this and can't believe I didn't come up with it earlier. If there happens to be a time during the day when Titus is asleep and I don't urgently need to be cleaning something, it becomes "project time." Moses and I sit at our huge kitchen table, I at the sewing machine, and he with play dough, markers, or whatever other project he decides to work on that day. It is really fun to have a crafting buddy - we get to spend some one-on-one time together, and I get in some much-needed creating time. Afterwards I can tell that he feels just as refreshed as I do. Hooray for project time!

I know this is totally irrelevant, but I have a new recipe for you...so we did "pancake night" tonight, and the batter contained almost a whole zucchini (grated, then pureed) and a bunch of strawberries pureed! And if I can just say, yours truly ate WAY too many of them. They were sooooo good! You can't taste the zuch. at all, the strawbs are delicious in pancakes, and the puree addition makes them a bit more crepe-like than regular jacks. Yummmmmmm!
