quiet & productive (with a side of james)
I dropped Nicky off at 8:45 and stopped at the store for some cabbage. I came home, had some coffee and made this soup, doubling the recipe and using homemade chicken stock. I will eat it all week. I'm exciting like that. I then started sewing, first finishing some lonely projects left this close to being finished last year:
Here is a shot of a headband I made on Saturday that was too small for the intended recipients. Nicky rocked it for quite a while that night. I made 3 bigger ones today.
All of this stuff is in my etsy shop now!
The school called at around 11:15 and said James was in the office not feeling well. He coughed a few times last night but said he felt good when he left for school this morning. He was pale when I got there and was so happy to come home. He said he wanted something hot for lunch, like a hamburger from Culvers, so off we went. :) Poor buddy. He laid on the couch all afternoon dozing and watching old cartoons on Netflix.
I just got back from picking Nicky up and he is now fast asleep upstairs. Sarah (his sitter) said he didn't nap today...too hard to fall asleep with a bunch of other kids playing, she thinks. He was really good for her though, so that is good. When I asked him this morning if he wanted to go see Sarah and Bo (her dog) he pointed at the door and brought me his shoes. :)
happy day. needed this.
