That would be one word to explain my absence and silence this week and I do apologize.
Too much Lots happening, nothing really to worry about, but just enough to have kept me away. But we did still manage to have a little bit of fun.
- We started free-styling with Spielgaben which is pretty amazing. So far, all our efforts had been inspired by the given material. It was nice to see her branch out and explore her own whimsy.
- I finally found a great site for artisan bread. This has to be the most detailed recipe (complete with tricks of the trade) I’ve found and the bread is delicious.
- Coffee filter snow flakes have to be one of our favorite things to make. Although cutting is still a bit of a challenge, we are getting better at shaping and creating these ephemeral pieces of delicate art.
- Following Kim from Mothering with Mindfulness, we decided to try our hand at snow candle making. I didn’t have much beeswax on hand so we made one. It was still a lot of fun.
The rest of the week, the few moments we had to simply be, were spent outside as a family. The weather was finally a bit more forgiving so dinners were early and late evening walks were on the dessert menu. The rest of the week, the week-end and early next week will be hectic as well. But by Tuesday night, calm and peace should reign again. Isn’t it funny how everything seems to happen all at once?
I hope you are having a more peaceful week than we are. Enjoy yourselves in the little things. In times of rushing and running about, the little things are the things I miss the most.
