Planning, Schooling, and Laziness

all rolled into one day.  Don't think we rolled out of bed until after 8:30, maybe closer to 9:00 AM.  At least the younger one and I.  We just needed the sleep and it felt wonderful.  Especially when the coffee started kicking in.  Thought it would be a no drive day, but a couple places needed/had to be hit.  Oh well!  At least they were relatively quick!

School took awhile, but that has been the normal lately.  We just seem to be having a lot of days where school is a bit here and a bit there.  Not a solid, straight amount of time.  It's getting accomplished, boys are learning.  Learning book stuff and learning how to roll with life's oddness.

Began planning for Ian's birthday.  He's looking forward to having friends over and to his actual birthday.  He's making requests for cakes, icing, and ice cream flavors, to the extent that I had to get a cook book out to explain the difference between a yellow cake and white cake.  Knew it was basically the differences between the whole egg versus the yolk, but was curious about the other stuff too.  Not a whole of difference beyond that, more the proportion of ingredients.

Things to be thankful for today:
  • slow morning
  • remembering to getting things done
  • early bedtime
  • finishing up round one of cakes
  • writing this blog post early
  • relief from a tension headache
  • making donuts with new pans

  •  Regular sized donuts, made in new pans
    this morning; liking them already!

    Something lovely from facebook
    this morning!
