Because of some extra irons in the fire this week, our weekend was only one day long. Somehow it still seemed more rejuvenating than many three-day weekends we've enjoyed. We all found the time to eat well, sleep well, and play together. There was knitting, music-making, and gardening (and even napping for the grown ups). Here are some highlights:
Is the photo above enough said? Goodness. These are so good. Sally Fallon's soaked waffles, loosely interpreted. I've made these so often I don't actually know if I am following her recipe anymore. it's all by memory at this point. And fresh blueberries, whipped cream, and a drizzle of maple? This breakfast was over the top.
Due to a little bug that joined our family
we were in need of some chicken soup this weekend too. I'm always
looking for an excuse to make this soup. It is dreamy. Whole potatoes,
big chunks of chicken, carrots, and corn in a gingery-limey-chicken
stock. Served with raw onions just pulled from the garden. I can't get
enough of this soup.
It's not a normal day it our house if
someone isn't making a crafty mess. This weekend it was stamps,
origami, and (surprisingly) Sage's new fixation with drawing dressing
he wants to sew for his sister. (I'm not complaining. I'm way more into
this phase than the new-machine-gun-designs phase.) He's so complex.
And our first family thrifting outing in ages. We walked in the rain
down to the flea market to hunt for treasures. Though we came home with
only a few bouncy balls, a Toddy, and an old suitcase, we had a great time together and even made it to down to the local second-hand book seller.
And tomorrow the kids and I are off for an adventure. I'll send your postcards from the road!
