My girls are talking pretty much all day long about this and that, most things they are pretty decent at pronouncing but one particularly humorous miss-pronunciation is 'flower' for which they say 'power' this results is hilarious statements such as;
Lots of people have asked me about these monkey (doll) ergos I made for my girls. They are super cute and were fairly easy to make. I bought the pattern off of Etsy here.
If I made them again I would make the waist strap a little smaller and possibly rig up a chest buckle since the shoulder straps often fall off but they love to carry their monkeys around when I carry C
Ok, summer is here, enough crockpot recipes, it is getting too hot for that. On colder days when my bananas are going bad I like to make a few loaves of banana bread and put them i the freezer, they make for an easy picnic with fruit and cheese sticks on summer adventures.The gilrls love to help with these and mash the bananas.
1 3/4 C Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/3 Cup Butter
1/3 Cup Suger
1 Cup mashed banana (about 2)
I like to add 1/4-1/2 cup of hemp hearts as well as sprinkle a few on the top.
I am not the most crafty person, but I like to fake it sometimes.
There was a gap on the wall by my desk just screaming to be filled with something and clutter on my desk of things that could really use some sort of cork board. I found some cork board squares at the dollar store and picked out some fabric I had that I liked. I really liked the fabric but the small peice I had was not quite big enough to wrap around the edges, so I added ribbon around the edges to give it a more finished look.
I cut one board into two smaller pieces and let the glue gun the work! I like how they turned out, I still need to pick up some thumbtacks so I can get some stuff off my desk :)
I don't know about you but we go through so many fruits and veggies here. I was naturally pretty excited when I discovered the 'Good Food Box.' About once a month you can order a small/medium or large box of fresh produce, you pay in advance for whichever size you want then pick it up on a designated day. When I added it up I figured I was getting things for about half price and it was making me experiment with new things I never buy like eggplant and beets. You can find more info for Calgary locations where you too can get cheap produce here.There are no pick-ups through the summer but it will be back up and running in the fall.
