We hiked through the jungle that is the corner of our yard to get to the elderberries. And Sylvia happily picked me one slightly unripe apple after another. So, I made some honey-sweetened elderberry-apple sauce. Only Ayla and I liked it as it was pretty tart, and possibly a little scorched. Ooops.
Camille cooked a simple dinner. Mama and Papa watched Project Runway. The girls watched Arthur. Sylvia is now doing the dishes because she loves to play with soap and water ( I won't show you a picture because she is wearing absolutely nothin' but rainbow legwarmers ;-) . Ayla is nursing to sleep as I type one-handed. We don't have (arbitrary) limits on 'screen time' or enforced chores. Life is good.
