Thursday, I took a pretty good fall trying to rush a paper to an engineer so I could get out of work and my foot didn't lift high enough and I fell up the stairs my hand slamming into the guardrail and then my chin following after it. I hurt pretty bad for a few days.

Thursday also though Brielle and I made rosemary jelly! It was our first time making jelly and my pot wasn't big enough and we lost a bunch of it as it boiled over and I'm yelling at Brielle, "Get a bigger pot!" As I'm holding up this boiling over, foaming pot of hot death. Huge mess on my stove but we continued!
Later that evening when I had both the girls we made Strawberry Bread. The girls had fun mixing the ingredients and I got to show Brielle how to use shortening and flour on a pan. Katherine got to learn how to fold the liquid and powder (plus strawberries) together so that the bread was well mixed but not over mixed.
Peter's parents came in town and Saturday morning they took the girls for awhile and Peter had to work so I cleaned house! I also made the frosting for the bread which I was a little iffy on when I read the ingredients but with the girls gone I found myself licking the beaters clean! YUM! Love cream cheese frosting.
So Saturday night we went to Peter's Aunt Ann's house to have mutton and I brought a loaf of strawberry bread. I wasn't the biggest fan of it. I think it needed more strawberries personally but 3/4th of the loaf was gone by time we left and people kept going back for more. At first they'd slice off a paper thin piece and then end up coming back to take a much bigger piece so I think overall it did well!
So here it is Sunday with no kids. 11 am and I am still sipping my coffee and pretty much just relaxing and Peter finally has a day off after 13 days straight! We were talking about going to the movies but we are quickly finding out by time we get out to the movie theater the movies we want to see are almost out of the theater therefore not 3D (which is fine in my book) or not in the theater at all! But when you are talking a $15 for two people for a matinee just to walk in the door it is no wonder we don't go out to the movies very often.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
