I’m liking this at-home thing (she says on day three). This morning I made spaghetti sauce from scratch in my pajamas. It’s still a novelty being home so it’s still a novelty to be able to cook when I feel like cooking rather than rushing to make something while the tired, hungry kids are hanging on my legs.
Yesterday I made bagels (bagels!). We easily go through 4 or 5 bagels a day and the good ones at the neighbourhood grocery store cost 65 cents each. Baking bagels fulfills my two goals of saving money and occupying the kids. Actually, I got excited and made them while both kids were napping but next time I’ll share the fun.
Today we went to the park where the kids braved the freezing-cold wading pool and Malli, despite strong discouragement, insisted on using his shoe as a boat. K. came home to find them both (not me) naked in the backyard wearing only rubber boots. It’s nice not having much of an agenda.
