Katt doesn't want her salad on her plate. Neither do I. The dressing gets mixed in with the other stuff.
Mary P., Madcap Mum, and I like pork products with sweet stuff. They mentioned applesauce with pork, or course, and ham with jam. I hadn't thought of that one but I do make a glaze out of the leftover bits of jelly in the fridge.
Mary P. and I both use sausage to mop up syrup. I thought I was the only one who did that.
The girls are off to school and I just finished a long rant on the other blog. It's time for something lighter. I thought their vacation would never end. Vacation for them but not for me. I did get a couple of weeks without the alarm clock though.
I woke up around 4 this morning (???) to find Rebecca in the bed. I got up for a few minutes and, by the time I returned, she had taken over my entire side, pillow and all. Much pushing and shoving ensued. She never woke up. They don't do that often but once in a while they may have a bad dream and sneak in.
It has stopped raining but it's still clammy and dank (redundant?). I don't like this weather at all but the sun is supposed to peek through the clouds at some point.
This is what our winter is usually like. Snow would be surprising but it stays either wet or foggy and occasionally drops below freezing.
Elcie started out her day by singing "School Days" or maybe it was her Grandpa Ray singing it to her. Someone was singing from her room in any event. I heard her say, "I hate that silly song". Grouch. She was unhappy because I hadn't hung her matching sweater and jeans together. At this point, I couldn't remember which jeans went with that sweater (see photo below). Now I know and next time they'll be together if she'll promise to leave them that way.
R & R were eager to get back. Probably because they had new clothes. They have a streak of vanity that I totally lack.
Madcap Mum has successfully made cottage cheese and she says it's simple. Her instructions are on her blog (see blog roll). It does look simple and I might get brave. Curds and whey? One of her commenters warned against spiders.
Enough for now, I'm just rattling on as usual.
