Day off

The girls and I had the day off from school and work yesterday. Among other things, I'd planned to take them out for lunch and then head over to the Zoo, but they had a different agenda in mind.

Instead of visiting the monkeys, we made sock monkeys,

snuggled with a few cherished critters and got lost in a book (or three),

and spent some time searching for Africa and other places.

We didn't do any of the things I'd planned in advance.

It was a lovely day.

It's been too long

Time to blow the dust off both this blog and the camera.

Yesterday, Morgan wanted something sweet for an after-school snack. I told her she could make a batch of cookies.

So she did. Oatmeal raisin, from scratch.

The best part: she did it all by herself.

I do believe we have another baker in the family!
