Frosty New Year Morning
Today was a 100% completely lazy day. And it was fabulous. We didn't leave the house until 11:30, at which point we drove to Near Island and went walking on the trails and down to the beach. The kids packed serious beach gear (kitchen utensils, primarily)-but once we got there, the ocean was at full tide and there wasn't any beach. (With the full moon, there have been incredible high and low tides lately.) The rest of the day was spent relaxing around the house and later in the day Nora and I went for a walk down the bike path.
This afternoon, I made some Beet Bundt Cake from my vegan baking cookbook which was really good! It used 2 cups of cooked pureed beets in the recipe-and also had 1/2 cup chocolate chips, sugar, flour, baking powder, etc. I liked how it turned out because it wasn't TOO sweet, like cakes often are! Plus, it has a healthy veggie in it! Woo-hoo!
Stuey and Nora PHRASES of THE WEEK
Stuey says, Way-way for Safeway. When we work on him saying Safeway (with an emphasis on the "s") he deviously smiles and says, "Sssssssss." "way-way". He knows how to link them (we've heard him do it), but he likes to be cute about it. Pretty funny.
Nora asked the other day, "Mom, do you have any doula clients right now?" I looked at Patrick and said, "did she really just ask if I have any doula clients?". She soaks in everything she overhears!
