they were here

My children do have mornings when they just read books and draw quietly. Like today. There must've been a myriad of planets x3 that aligned just right and not a millimeter off this morning to turn my children into quietly-sitting-and-drawing-or-reading type. Thank you, planets!

And we got to make this again. Didn't have time to finish it though... Any guesses what it could be? We've been enjoying this stuff for the past few days. Kids are hooked!


I've had about a dozen of links open in my browser for weeks, waiting for a perfect day to cook, sew and do some uninterrupted reading. I had to quit and restart my browser several times since then, always worrying about loosing my open pages. It's time to put an end to it, and have at least one area organized in our house, even if it's just a browser on the computer with a very cluttered desktop, both virtual and Ikea built. So here they are, my precious links that I've been holding onto all these weeks.
