Nice.

Wootton Wonders and Woes

    Ah, Mother’s Day. A holiday I love. I love the handmade cards and the breakfast that my kids and hubby do for me. I always get flowers to plant and also ask for one item for the house I know I wouldn’t get otherwise, because how can they say no to a Mother’s Day gift? (Last year I got a new ceiling fan to replace the pink one I couldn’t stand. This year I requested blinds to go in my bedroom to replace the ones my toddler has torn to shreds. It’s getting seriously obscene.)

    I got two unexpected gifts this Mother’s Day. The first came while I was sitting at church with my family, my one-year-old playing contentedly on my lap. Suddenly, my lap felt rather warm and rather wet. Yes, Happy Pee-Pee Mother’s Day to me. Her diaper wasn’t on quite right, so my dress became her…

Weekend In Pictures

Love it!

Merry Magpie Farm

05.13.13a

We let the ducks out in pairs to swim.  A couple of them took right to it; a few others were more interested in escaping.

05.13.13b

05.13.13c

We worked on brushing the dogs and getting them treated with Frontline now that ticks are out in full force.

05.13.13e

05.13.13f

I made a batch of homemade granola using a variation on  THIS recipe from Susan.

05.13.13g

I add cinnamon and maple syrup along with the honey to mine.  This time of year I always use dried blueberries or cherries;  in the fall I like to use pumpkin seeds and dried apples or cranberries.

What did you do with your weekend?

Any of you remember the Disney movie, Flubber? Or maybe even Nickelodeon’s Slime?

Here’s the recipe to make it!! Have fun with this one. Sometimes making a sticky mess can be good.

Mixture 1 (in one bowl):

  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 2 cups Elmer’s Glue
  • Food coloring

Mixture 2 (in a second bowl):

  • 3 tsp. Borax
  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • Stir mixture 1 together in 1 bowl.

Make sure both are mixed well.

Pour mixture 1 into mixture 2.

There is no need to stir the mixture, just knead as you would dough.
(Fact: It is the chemical reaction that actually makes the flubber.)
When it is in a “glob” state, work it for 2-3 minutes
Initially it feels wet but it eventually dries up to the final product.

My Lunch Box

I love the theory here.

Living with my Parents

The following exercise is inspired by Anne Lamott’s book Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. In the chapter “School Lunches” Lamott tells writers if you don’t know where to start, write about school lunches. The purpose of the exercise is to take a short assignment and yield a shitty first draft of detailed memory…then see where it takes you.

Here is my shitty first draft of My Lunch Box.

****************************

When I was a kid my mom used to make me peanut butter and Nutella sandwiches when I stayed for lunch at school – once a week tops. They were my favourite kind of sandwich because it was like eating a Reese Peanut Butter Cup melted and slathered on bread.

The thing is though, the other kids didn’t seem to have the same excited response as I did to my most amazing meal. They would look at my sandwich in shock, then look…

My Main Man Rupert

Great

Superhero of Imperfection

Meet Rupert.

20130513-121558.jpg

He’s a sock.

Well, he was a sock until he became a Rupert.

Now he’s a furry little guy who lives in my purse and comes out when there are children around to marvel in his magic.

I made him for an assignment in my Elementary Art Education class as a closing project. He is created from a sock, two googly eyes, some feathers, two cardboard triangles inside that provide structure to the mouth, and hot glue. Our teacher thought we could make them to take to our own classes one day and use as instructional tools. I might do that too, when the time comes, but in the mean time I have a better idea!

The kids I babysit love Rupert! He intrigues them in a way an ordinary toy couldn’t because he comes alive and interacts with them. The eighteen month old twins don’t understand that…

I am Susie the pig

And I think it is rude to spit.

It doesn’t look very nice and

If everyone did this

It would be like skating on ice.

A friend of mine

Called Freddy the Frog,

Saw someone spitting in the pond.

This is a place that is his home,

Along with all the fish and ducks

Who keep their habitat very clean.

He could not believe

His eyes when he saw

Someone spitting in his home.

My opinion is this,

What if

I spat everywhere I went,

All over the fields

Or in my sty?

What if

I spat in someone’s eye?

I couldn’t imagine doing that,

I must admit.

But, let me tell you about

The chocolate cat

Who lives next door,

He licks himself

Whilst lying on the floor.

He is very vain

But I must admit,

I have never seen him spit.
