busy busy

Ted loved RMDC. Archery was his favorite. How cool is that?! Sam and Mae were happy to be back at the JCC. Heather brought them home for me and I got TONS done!
  • baked Raisin Bran muffins (these are sooo good)
  • blanched & froze last week's CSA greens (7 servings worth)
  • pressed, marinated & baked the tofu for tonight's Tofu Lettuce Wraps and Thursday's meal
  • did the grocery shopping
  • washed, line dried and folded 3 loads of laundry
  • took a 3 mile run with Ole and showered (!!!)
  • unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher
  • prepped Ted's bag for tomorrow and made his lunch
  • made little snack bentos for the kids to eat in the car on the way to TKD
  • planned meals for the week
I just had to put it all down because it was a good day to have after quite a few weeks of what felt like NO alone time, translating into no time to get things done. When I have the time to keep the house running smoothly, I magically have the energy/patience/time to spend more time with the kids. We talked, we read books, we snuggled. I love the structure these 3 weeks will have.

And for the record, the Tofu Lettuce Wraps were our local meal of the week thus far. CSA lettuce, CSA zucchini, CSA onion & garlic, backyard garden mint and local tofu.
