2. Post the rules - Done
3. Share 6 non-important habits/quirks about yourself:
*Room must be clean before I scrap, but I don't mind messy once I am creating (Probably the only time I don't mind messy!)
*Habit--cuticle biting when tired
*I can put something off FOREVER, but if it gets put on my "to-do" list, for some magical reason, it gets done that day.
*Must close shower curtain after shower
*I have to eat Pot Roast with tortillas.
*I love tv, but I try to minimize it for Tate.
Yea, I know, I am a total hypocrite.

Paul wants to haev a big going away party before we head to London. Sounds fun and all, but the to-do list is currently GINORMOUS. To make things easy, I am thinking about:
1. Catering/Take Out
2. Easy Party Food
ANY SUGGESTIONS? If you went to a party, what would you want? What are your favorite party foods? Think about appetizers, main entrees, and desserts...
**Thanks in advance for your ideas:)

***Paul has camera, so pics next posting.
1. CKC St.Louis was GREAT! photos to come. My favorite part was making an acrylic album. So cool and pretty easy to make it look good.
2. Last Minute trip to FL--awesome to be barefoot, have to stop eating after viewing bathing suit pics.
3. Returning to tons of rain AND a crack in our basement. People are awesome, though, because the company we called that repairs basement floods, was booked a month out, walked Paul through step by step as to how to repair it.
4. Tate currently lying to me about his diaper status.
5. Market Research interview tomorrow about TV, Fashion, and Home Decor. Can't wait!
6. Bread Recipe from Shining Rivers Waldorf School: (we make it weekly into small rolls)
Shining Rivers Bread
1 ½ TBS dry yeast
1 C warm (not boiling) water
dollop of honey
1 stick butter
1 large wooden spoonful of honey
1 TBS salt
3 C warm milk (or warm water)
4-5 C white flour4-5 C wheat flour
Optional Ingredients: sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, cinnamon, raisins, millet, rolled oats, nuts.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle yeast in 1 cup of warm water mixed with a dollop of honey. Let the yeast float on top of the water without mixing. Put aside in a warm place until it gets foamy.
Put a stick of butter, the large wooden spoonful of honey and alt in a large bowl. Pour the warm milk (or water) over the butter, honey and salt. When cool enough to hold finger n for a count of 10, add yeast.
Sift in the flour, alternating white and whole wheat, stirring with a wooden spoon to make a sponge. The children love to make it “snow” in the bowl! Add and of the optional “secret ingredients”. Cover with a “blanket” and set in a warm place to rest for 10-15 minutes.
Add enough flour to make the dough kneadable. Put a little flour on the table in front of each child for kneading.
Yield: about 2 nations
Bake: about 30 minutes

Firstly, we made a birthday banner out of all the scraps of fabric we had in the house. I had white flannel, so I let Tate glitter/marker/paint/glue on those pieces. This took all week, but we will use it in in years to come. So much better than throwing a paper one away....
Actually that is the way I got the idea. I wanted to make a paper banner and then I realized at .60 a sheet of scrapbook paper..."let's opt for something else". I then remembered the collection of fabric that just sits in my house. In fact, I have a few friends that I am unloading the rest on to this weekend.
And our "bookmaking/art kit" that I mentioned in a previous post. Also from Soulemama...
