Here's what we did yesterday, besides unpack from a weekend camping trip (I swear we should stay a week considering all the stuff we pack):
Maia and I made a new batch of play dough. I LOVE MaryAnn Kohl's recipe for play clay in her First Art book. I've made it so many times now. It's soft and wonderful and lasts forever (we keep ours in a freezer bag).
Maia asked for red this time, and enjoyed squeezing an entire bottle of red food coloring into the mixture. It still came out pink, rather than red. I should have bought the larger bottles of food coloring, especially considering all the color mixing, homemade paints, and other things we do around here.
I made tabbouleh for dinner, using quinoa instead of bulghur, completely inspired by Angry Chicken. I'm not sure what we would have done for dinner otherwise. Eaten our toes or something.Â I loved it with quinoa! So, so good and light. And, except for the quinoa, we had just about everything fresh in the garden including cherryÂ tomatoes, cucumbers, mint, and parsley. Yum.
I alsoÂ posted some new stuff in my etsy shopÂ (actually before our camping trip), including the pillows IÂ made the other day and some new tricycle shirts.
Maia appropriated oneÂ of myÂ tricycle shirts before I could get it into the shop, but there are a couple more, including the one above. She likes to think everything I make is for her. She even managed to put a baby onesie on the other day before I noticed!
Oh, and one more thing… Yesterday really was my 6 month blog anniversary!
And that's all forÂ this mish-mash post.
