Yeah, I’m still here. Been a little busy. Ruby & I are battling colds. And I’m re-reading Jim Trelease’s The Read-Aloud Handbook. [Edited to add: I had a request to add this book to my amazon shop. You can find it there now, in the parenting section.] One of the things I read the other night said that in a study of stay-at-home moms, the mothers spent only 13 minutes of one-on-one time with the child. I don’t know how accurate this is, but I think I’ve been trying to make up for all these other kids lately. Ruby has been getting a lot of my attention. I don’t usually blog when she’s awake, but I do other things, like dishes. She’s napping now:
AND, I have a Meet Your Maker show on Friday, so I’m busily making a bunch of products, including some new things that I’ll post in my etsy shop after the show. Oh yeah, AND I’m baking. The lemon meringue that I made turned out well and I am baking a lemon glaze cake tonight for someone. Looks like I’m going to be opening another etsy shop for baked goods: the cooling rack. It’s not quite ready yet, but maybe in a couple weeks. I’ll let you know, but if you have ideas for foods I should put up there, let me know!
Here’s our latest CSA haul:
sungold cherry tomatoes
gold roma tomatoes
Last night we ate tomato, mozzarella, basil sandwiches and pretended it was summer. Tonight we’ll have chard omelets with rosemary potatoes. Yum!!
