It's been a much more productive day than yesterday! No naps. I've done housework, laundry, grading schoolwork (still just a bit of that to finish), taken pictures of paper crafts I've made, listed several new items in my shop, and cooked supper. Now Beth and I are about to go shopping for some craft supplies and go to the gym (I'd just as soon not go to the gym!). And that will just about fill up the whole day.
We had tons of veggies left after Andrew's party Monday night. Do you fix too much food for parties too? I have a fear of not having enough food, so I always overdo it. Tonight I made a stir-fry to try and use up the veggies. After supper, Beth walked into the kitchen and said, "Is that all the vegetables we used up?" Yes, we still have tons of veggies left over. Stir-fry, anyone?
Wes is not crazy about veggies, so when I get a hankering for stir-fry, I fix double the sauce, cook the meat and veggies separate, then split the sauce between them. It works well for us. He eats just the meat and rice and the rest of us eat it all. Just a small way to honor my husband's preferences!
Andrew has picked up a new interest: balloon animals. He got a book at the library yesterday, decided he could probably make the ones in the book, and got some balloons today. He's been practicing all afternoon. Beth is now the proud owner of several balloon dogs (who reside upon her desk), and I was gifted with a balloon flower. He's also made a Pink Panther, which ended up looking like Pink Panther in front, but in back - not so much! I'll have to take some pics to show you. All was fine with my flower till one of the petals popped when I was in the room alone. It took a few minutes for my heart rate to slow back down.
Lastly, Beth is having a sale in her Etsy shop, edbdbeadz . . . buy one, get one of equal or lesser value 1/2 off. Stop by if you can!
That's it for now. I'll post some pictures from Andrew's party in another post. Have a great evening!
