I’ve actually accomplished things today!
Hannah at A Handmade Childhood talked about a shelf she has that she stores ‘things to do’ on–like her handmade soap. I ALSO have that shelf, things that I want to try, I’m going to get done, I plan to accomplish. It’s a big & full shelf, more of a shed really.
Anyway, I took this kit off an actual shelf in my kitchen where it’s been holding it’s place for over 2 years & got to it. With an extra gallon of fresh raw milk to spare, it was time. The kit is great, you can make mozerella or ricotta. I went with ricotta so we can have calzones for dinner, an old favorite of mine. Well, making cheese led to making bread (from the whey).
We also ran errands, like getting 2 bee suits (as we’ve got a mad hive to deal with) & a queen (for the mad hive), visited the bank & stopped by the mall to mail packages & to partake of a snack. Now the girls nap & I boast about the glory a rainy day brings.
I must also note how proud I am of Naomi who has taken up puzzling in recent weeks. She sat at the counter & finished a small frame-less puzzle I found thrifting yesterday while I made the cheese & bread. She’s only become really interested in the past few months. I LOVE puzzles & have spent hours of my life hunched over a table getting them done. Recently I did another one that I found at a thrift store & it really grabbed her attention…anyway, if you’ve forgotten how much fun puzzles can be, pull one out! (used ones are great because you just never know if you’ll have all the pieces!)
& birds gotta eat–even in the rain 😉
don’t forget the giveaway!
