Friday. Such a nice day. We finished our Gershwin movie in school, finished our chapter on primates, and watched A Child's Christmas in Wales on Youtube.
A friend joined me in front of the fire for the afternoon -- needed down time for both of us. Life never slows and unless I force myself to stop, I don't. We talked knitting, crocheting, books, and life in general. And we enjoyed Mighty Leaf decaf Earl Grey (two pots) and several gluten free treats as well as sliced persimmons (one of my favorite seasonal treats that also makes an awesome addition to a salad).
After tea I raced down to pick up Rachel from school, get her home and dressed up for her Winter Social at school -- which of course meant racing her back to school by 7 p.m. While that was happening I did manage to feed the family a new food -- black bean noodles from Costco in a vegetable stir fry. They were SO good!!! And, they have 25g of protein per serving which means you aren't missing the meat! I think I'll make this a regular staple.
I dropped Rachel at school and headed to Craig and Emily's new shop via every scary and deserted street Google maps could think of! My job was to letter several large signs that will hang at the back of the shop. Three hours later they were done and I was on the road again (via my own directions) to get Rachel picked up and head home to bed!
