Rock painting

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

I found a new hobby of mine today, rock painting! Oh my god it’s funny. It started with the boy asking us to do that on Monday, bu the had playdates and so on, so we couldn’t do it until today. After we dropped off the girl at school we collected a lot of rocks an when we got home I washed them (must have been a sight, washing rocks like they were real dishes). We put them out in the sun for a few minutes, and then I set the table outside on the porch. The photo explains that.

It was really nice sitting out in the sun for a short while and painting rocks. I had to stop half an hour later though because I promised the boy I would make pancakes today also. He had a temper this morning and the since my patience isn’t as good as I would have hoped it would be by now, bribing is the only thing working. But I like pancakes and I make it healthier by decreasing the number of pancakes and adding a lot of fruits/berries, like strawberries, blueberries and banana. I also have yoghurt instead of whipped cream.

In my freetime I did some shopping. A birthday is coming up (in more than a month) :).

When both the kids were back home I decided we should do some more rock painting. The boy didn’t want to but me and the girl sat at the table and painting some more rocks. I have some in my window now that I’m pretty proud of. The best one is of a rainbow but the one the kids really love is the one that I tried to make look like a converse shoe. It wasn’t so good, but they want one of their own so I will make them one each some time.

Dinner today was kind of a success again. The dad and the girl said they liked it. The boy ate his piece super slowly so I guess he didn’t like this either… I think he makes up his mind before he even tries it… It makes me really sad everytime that happens!
But I thought it was really good! Oh, yeah, I made homemade tacopizza on scones bread. On the crust they put honey or jelly. Dinner, dessert and breakfast, all in one ;).

I am super tired and I think I actually am going to bed now… before the kids!
