In My Life.....

-----Little One was pushing the tricycle by the handlebars earlier and pretending it was a lawn mower.
-----We got quit a few tosses of the big plastic lid in with Fetch-Obsessed Doggie before one of the other doggies heard her ecstatic barks and started the usual bullying about it. Both dogs are a problem when it comes to playing fetch. Separate play when it comes to fetch. Sigh. I have been trying to figure a way to get the bigger dog to compromise. I might try distraction by throwing two lids with perfect timing and see if they will play nicely.
-----I made a apple whipped cream last night. It was actually my first time making whipped cream by myself. It was buttery at first and then it went slightly liquidy...but it tasted so GOOD. I got the recipe from an old Pillsbury cookbook and I found some tips from Pillsbury on how to make whipped cream that I will be using next time. There are a lot of good, comforting homestyle recipes in that cookbook that I want to try. I love finding Cucumbers in Sour Cream recipes and I am going to try one of those this week. :-)
-----Little One gets to go to a new park this week. :-) This will be the first time we have gone to a park that Little One is old enough to do more than the swings. Normally, we do swings t parks, play on Church equipment or use the slide, etc. that we have at home. This will be fun and we are excited to have our friend with us. I hope there are pretty flowers and landscape for me to photograph.
-----Praying for a relative who is having custody issues following a tragedy.
-----I also made a simple recipe from the old Pillsbury cookbook that I mentioned: Thinly sliced roast beef, cheese (we had mild cheddar) and BBQ sauce on a hamburger bun. Wrap the sandwiches in foil and put in the oven until the cheese melts. The recipe did not specify a temperature. I am fond of anything resembling tin foil packet cooking.
-----I watched "Elvis and Me" again. There are so many stories and obvious fabrications regarding what happened in Elvis' life (I am not saying that is necessarily what is going on in this movie). I guess the world will never know.
-----Amusingly, I saw an Elvis and Priscilla fanpage where the owner let everyone know that she was not Priscilla.
-----My friend lent me a huge binder for a homeschool curriculum called "Education Plus." It is for blending Biblical teachings in with the various core subjects. The binder is about 4 inches thick and is just for Genesis 1-11! It is supposed to be one of the best curriculums for this. I am so glad that I have so many friends that have homeschooled, are teachers or even teach at Montessori (which I hold in high esteem for a lot of things).
-----We start toddler preschool in the Spring. :-)
-----A friend gave us about 30 books on all kinds of subjects. There are board books, school books for when Little One is older and books in Spanish (of which I am an intermediate speaker and can read everything even if I don't understand). I want to go through a couple big boxes of books we have in storage soon. Children can never have too many books. As I type this, Little One is looking at "Good Night, Gorilla."
