Some things Sarah has been doing/enjoying lately:
-Dancing! moves from one foot to the other...and fast.
-Flying! like an airplane in her Daddy's arms...all over the house. Always signs more for this.
-Sandwiches! I make a pb sandwhich and use a cookie cutter on the bread and she'll eat the whole sandwhich. It was fun saying, "Here's a teddy-bear sandwhich for you Sarah." and standing it up on the tray for her.
-Kissing! And she'll kiss anyone on the lips...we're going to encourage on the cheek kisses now, so feel free to offer your cheek if she comes to you all puckered up.
Feeling the end-of-the-month grocery fund crunch and blessings currently. 2 days ago I was just about to collect all the loose change for some fresh produce when I get an email from my mom who had just left town saying she's left a bag of stuff for us in her fridge that needs to be eaten. Thank you God for apples, stir-fry veggies which tasted great by the way (last 2 bucks bought tofu to add with 'em), celery and carrots. Also, tonight I enjoyed a kiwi at Andy's folk's and I found some blueberries in the freezer last week...wowzers.
Been kinda cramped up lately - tendonitus - but am appreciating some improvement after a chiro and massage appointment.
2 days ago when it was nice and sunny and Mom and I and Sarah walked to the chiro. We waited 1/2 hr. there and to come out and it rained for the rest of the day. We had brought no umbrella and just suited up Sarah with grocery bags from the veggie market and I decided too to give her my coat when a friend of mine honks and pulls over for us...she didn't have her son with her so had a carseat and everything...so she took us home. Thanks Crystal. That was a hard day, I guess I was counting on it being sunny longer, so I actually felt mad at God that the rain was back so soon. Today, we were out and the rain wasn't too bad and I was very thankful for some sun rays that touched our face.
Had a fun time in the kitchen this morning making healthy shapes. I really enjoy inventing healthy baking recipes. Here's a go at what the recipe was:
1 3/4 C. cooked millet
1 3/4 C. cooked red lentil purree
1/2 C. brown rice syrup
3/4 C. ground almonds
1/3 C. tahini
3 TBSP. ground flax
1 C. whole wheat flour
1 C. quick oats
1/2 tsp. ginger
roll out and cut shapes... bake for 5 min. at 350 F.
I never measure when inventing, so the recipe is a guesstimate. I wrote it out for my benefit mainly, but if anyone tries it, let me know how it works.
Our windowsill herb garden got overrun with bugs so Andy dismantled it and now we have some goldfish there instead. The trip to the pet store 'got him.' They are in 2 big jars.
That's it for now.
