Though I should have posted this a while ago, please do check out the post I did a few weeks ago for The Creative Mama. It was my way of beginning to crawl out of the funk I was in, a safe place to say hi in the world of the internet after ignoring it for so long. The cookies are an old family favourite, which came to mind a month or two ago in what could likely be described as a pregnancy craving.
Let me tell you, in case you couldn’t already fathom it, that having a roll of dough in the freezer that one could just slice a disc or two off of, to bake into golden brown sticky soft warm comfort, is exactly what every pregnant lady needs. Scratch that – it’s what everyone needs, from time to time. They’re a holiday favourite, originally, but they never hurt to have around.
It’s been a little while since I joined in with The Creative Mama crew to do a “day in the life” post. Honestly, I completely forgot about it during the month of July, which was somewhat overwhelming for our family. And today’s post, rather than being a compilation of photos from a single day, which is usually what I do, is a series taken over the course of the entire month, documenting our misadventures along the way.
The kiddo and I have had lots of time to spend together. We do a lot of chalk. I outline her body on the sidewalk, and then she does me.
I end up looking like a bit of a sasquatch, but at least I get to lay down for a minute, and the view is nice.
We went on a wickedly successful hike, during which, when plied with Cheerios, my little one hung out quite contentedly in the backpack.
And then, on the same day, we managed to go blueberry picking. For those of you who have toddlers, you’ll know what a coup this is.
Those made a pretty remarkable pie, by the way.
We spend a lot of time taking the dog for long walks.
Always with this as the goal:
As for my downtime, it looks a little like this:
And sometimes, if I wake up early enough, there’s just a little bit of time to read and sip a cuppa before the kiddo wakes up.
Hi all…I have a new post on The Creative Mama this week with some thoughts on making new friends and the recipe for these peach and white chocolate scones.
My latest post for The Creative Mama went up this week – a little story about stories and a recipe for strawberry pop and ginger-snap cookies with icing on top. Head on over there to check it out!
