After a week of no phone and no internet, it feels really great to click on the Firefox logo and have my browser open perfectly every single time. It’s even faster than it was before, due to this awesome tutorial. My page load times are so much faster, it’s seriously amazing.
I still have no new project pictures to put up because I have been too disgusted with the whole no internet thing to care about uploading pics. That’s a rotten attitude, I know…so I’ll try to get to it tomorrow.
We have been really busy around here. The marble magnets are a thing of the past; now we have moved on to making magnetic bookmarks. I would include a link here, but we’ve been making our own up as we go along, so there’s no link to include. I will try try TRY to get pics tomorrow.
We have also been making lapbooks and mini offices. As far as I can tell, there’s not a difference between the two, but maybe I’m missing something. We have one for Math and one for Language Arts. They are both based on next year’s curriculum so we haven’t used them much yet, but they are a fun project, and I’m seriously hoping it will cut down on the “Mommy how do you” questions!
The garden is exploding with green tomatoes, crazy amounts of zucchini, and beets that are bigger than my fist and really sweet. We are having a great time checking out how fast things can ripen and how fast seeds become plants (little does she know she’s actually doing science! lol). We are, in fact, getting swamped with zucchini, and there’s only so much fried zucchini one family can stand, so it was time to look for new recipes. Tonight I tried Paula Deen’s Zucchini Lasagna and it was delicious! My one complaint was that the final layer of cheese burned to a blackened crisp and for one split second I was sure I’d ruined an hour’s worth of work. Turns out that the cheese was easy to remove as one big hunky layer, so it didn’t ruin anything. If I make it in the future I’ll just omit that last layer of cheese, because frankly, it may have been too much cheese. I know, I know, there’s really no such thing…but in this case there’s the possibility that there was.
I’m really tired and grouchy so I’m going to shut up now. And maybe upload those pictures…although making another book mark sounds like a lot more fun…hmm.
