dreaming of summer
I've been so busy at work this year that I've had less mental energy to think and plan for summer. I do have a short list, though . . .
:: make Barefoot Contessa's herbal iced tea (from her Family Style book--the little boys can drink this too)
:: plan a fun picnic in the park with hand pies (this one is on my list every year but I have yet to make hand pies as picnic food. Maybe this will be the year.)
:: I'm totally inspired by this to make snickerdoodles and eat them warm from the oven--with the boys' help of course!
:: paint wooden beads and beeswax polish them and string them to make bracelets (like here)
:: figure out the perfect salad "formula" and find a homemade dressing that I like
:: read actual novels and get lost in another place and time (suggestions are welcome!)
:: take knitting lessons
:: sew as much as possible
:: draw. Follow the ideas in the current issue of 3191--stock up on cereal boxes and Sharpies.
:: write something
:: go hiking
Hooray that summer is almost here!
