So I'll stick to questions and answers today and throw in a few of the pictures that I snapped this weekend to keep the grandparents happy!
1. What do you still want to do this summer?
|Today's bit of summer fun|
involved running around
campus with Patch trying to go
over and play Frisbee with
the college kids.
Still, since the bar has ended, it kind of feels like summer just got started and we're finally getting to go out and do fun things with Daddy without worrying about getting home to study for some horrible test that's looming on the horizon.
It's sweet, sweet freedom.
So finally going to zoos and parks and museums without the Bar looming over our heads is high up on the list right now, for at least a portion of our days, slipped in between Mae's daily therapy sessions and sewing and that check list that I just can't seem to put out of my mind of things that I'd like to have done.
2. What's your favorite kind of pie?
I love just about any pie that involves berries... especially raspberries.
Since 3 out of 3 kids in the house can't have wheat or dairy of both, however, I usually get my berry pie fix with berry cobbler. Somewhere around here there's a recipe, but basically I make a berry base with berries and a little bit of sugar and then make a topping by mixing almond meal, shredded coconut, brown sugar and that vegan butter that really, really tastes like real butter. I bake it all until it becomes wonderfully mess cobbler goodness that can ruin a toddler shirt in about ten seconds flat!
3. How much sleep do you need each day? How much do you get?
When I'm not pregnant, seven hours from bedtime to morning time is okay (although let's face it, that usually involves getting up at least once, or when co-sleeping, half waking up a number of times). When I'm pregnant eight is the bare minimum to keep me from falling asleep during the day in the middle of the play room floor.
4. Do you prefer to swim in a pool, lake, river, or ocean?
I think that was actually the last time that I went surfing...
On the other hand when we were at the fish hatchery a couple of weeks ago Mae tried to rip her hand out of mine and throw herself in to just about every single fish holding tank that we saw. So she apparently has no problem swimming with large numbers of not-so-little fish.
5. Do you know any poems by heart?
|Finally! Someone who likes memorizing poems|
as much as I do!
6. Do you use the public library?
We do! Although I haven't been nearly as often in the last couple of months as I had been before the final semester of law school arrived. For quite a while Sadie and I were making weekly trips after her ballet class on Saturdays. Hopefully we'll be able to start those trips up again now that things are a bit less hectic!
