Yesterday was my birthday. I spent it doing things I love.
Breakfast involved chocolate chip sourdough. It is one of my favorite breads to make and eat, but I only make it for special occasions. It is enjoyed too quickly in our household, so we can’t have it around often.
After breakfast we headed to a homeschool group hike. We made s’mores after our hike. It was cold, in the upper 20s, but it felt great to get out. After the outdoor fun I took the kids into the Nature Center to explore. They happily colored for a half hour. They only left because I bribed them with a surprise.
After our hike I took the kids to Goodwill and let them spend $5 on whatever they wanted. It was the easiest way I could think of to guarantee some afternoon knitting time. You never know what you are going to get when you buy a taped shut box at Goodwill, but we did alright. The Marker Maker was a bust, but the craft and the race track kept them both busy.
I ended the night playing Knitting the Card Game with John. I won. I’m pretty sure he let me win, and I don’t even mind.
Today it was back to normal. I’m wishing I could bribe the kids with cheap used toys for knitting time everyday.
