staycation day four
:: cut up some plums for a picnic and discovered why they call them 'elephant heart plums'
:: did a child-led creative project (the best kind)
:: visited the Santa Barbara Natural History museum and the butterfly pavilion
:: picnicked in the museum back yard
:: had our usual Thursday night children's produce stand
:: read books and watched an episode of Project Runway season 2
Thanks for all your good wishes about my root canal. I'm feeling much better and the area is only a little sore now. Today will be a mellow day hanging out at home, breaking out some new legos, swimming at the pool, and hopefully cutting out some fabric for a new throw quilt (we'll see about that). The weather has been lovely and summery and the garden is so fun right now. The boys had an awesome time harvesting the radishes for the farmer's market last night. This staycation and staying close to home is exactly what I needed.
