Productive domesticity!!!

My "big" girl's 1st cup of milk...not in a sippy cup

Pancakes--from scratch

Lentil Soup & Dumplings

Pinto Beans, Hoecakes, Onions & Collard Greens

I, Ducky, made three meals from scratch yesterday!!!! I'm very proud of myself and somewhat tired. I'm just glad it was enough food for more than one day so I don't have to do much today--works out well especially b/c my allergies have exploded...most likely due to the neighbor cutting his grass last night while I was outside getting the last of the laundry off the line. Yup, it was a busy day--cooking, washing clothes & dishes, and vacuuming! Off to rest during naptime and help my poor teething Zoey!

Never want to grow up...

My baby is 2!!!! I can't believe it...they just grow so fast. We had a nice quiet, rather warm day at home to celebrate. And she just loves having music of her own to listen to, dance to, and fall asleep to. She put herself in bed tonite--no fussing, no being told to lay back down, nothing. Now tell me why I didn't think of this sooner.

Looking forward to a busy week of making my house company ready and learning to cook a few things besides pb & j and bbq pizzas. I'll post pics of the finished products--no matter how good or bad they turn out... And my new & improved clothesline is up so I can catch up on laundry without having to leave home b/c the dryer is counteracting our poor tiny window air conditioners... someday I'll live somewhere w/ central air or maybe even somewhere that doesn't believe in temperatures above 70.
