September 18, 2010

Today has been a very productive day.  I stayed home all day and have enjoyed myself a lot.  I got to do whatever fit my fancy.  I love days like today.  The kids stayed in their PJ's all day...and we are not even sick :) 
Here are a few pictures.  Remember it was a do as I want day, so therefore, I did not want to do my daughters hair :)

This is a cherry/walnut sour dough baguette.  It was so yummy.

My hubby talked me into making a Cheddar/Jalapeño sour dough bread.  My in-laws gave us a bunch of vegetables out of their garden.  One of the things they gave us was lots of jalapeños.  I was told that they were extremely hot so I only put a little over a 1/4 cup in the bread.  The bread turn out really good but I think next time I will put in closer to 1/2 cup or more of the jalapeños and maybe even more cheese :) 

I had a bunch of strawberries so I made tried to make more jelly.  It did not set very good so it will be more for toast, ice cream topping, or syrup for pancakes.  

I have been looking around at different homeschool blogs.  I can across a blog where a lady was talking about how much her kids loved playing with peg boards.  I took one look at them and knew I had to have them.  Darius and Cynthia both like playing with thing they can manipulate.  I sent David a picture and told him what I wanted, and he went to work this afternoon.  I have to say that they turned out incredible.  Both the kids liked them a lot.  



                                                                         I did warn you about the hair :)
