Did you take part in the readathon over the weekend? I sort of did. I knew I wouldn’t be able to do very much as my parents are in town and we would go out and do things, but I still wanted to join in for a bit. And I ended up reading four comics on Saturday!
Here’s what else we did this weekend:
Took my Dad to Texas Roadhouse for prime rib and those delicious soft buns that they have.
Did lots of gardening. We’ve had such a wet winter this year in Northern California – it was just raining again last week – and I haven’t been able to really get out there and handle all the weeds and plants that didn’t make it through the winter! I finally got to doing that, did some tilling of the soil, and hopefully the kids can plant some of their seeds soon. They selected some vegetables and some flowers and I haven’t exactly been successful planting flowers from seed (except sunflowers) so I hope they won’t be disappointed!
The 8yo and I made this Vermont Whole Wheat Oatmeal Honey Bread (recipe from King Arthur Flour) and it was fun teaching him how to knead the dough.
I started watching How To Get Away With Murder and am hooked!
