The plan today was to make goat cheese. I'd never tried to make any kind of cheese before but have always wanted to. I'm following the recipe from Martha and I can't seem to find the ingredient, mesophillic anywhere..... well, local anyway. I could order it but if I only need 1/16 of an ounce, no it's 1/16 of a teaspoon! I mean I don;t even have anything to measure that.
Excuse the attitude, I'm pretty exhausted from a pretty full day with a 3.5 year old.
We journeyed into town this afternoon to watch the inauguration with real people and one thing led to another and before I knew it, I had one hungry tired toddler on my hands.
We got home to paint for the 4th time today and O begins to touch his paint, and like every other kid, wipes his hands on the tablecloth then his pants. Acrylic paint.
I head to the back to our bookshelves to do some much needed decluttering and he begins to pour mod podge onto a book that has been torn. And it, of course, pours out of the sides onto the already stained white table cloth. What can you do really? I have been known to either head straight for the hidden stash of chocolate or curl up on the couch with my favorite quilt and watch I Love Lucy reruns.
But really I couldn't be without, my life would be completely boring without him! It makes for a memorable day.
I wanted to post this picture to remind myself that you can still find beauty even on the grayest of days.
And I am an "Obama Mama!" What O has been calling me all day
There will be a return of positive daily reflections and what we have been working on for the month of January.....homeschooling at it's finest!
There is Hope!
