I've spent a couple of productive days at home getting a few jobs done that I've been putting off. The girls have been happy playing on their ipads and dressing and styling their American Girl Dolls.
They have really enjoyed each others company these holidays, being really nice to each other. They have been a pleasure to have at home. Tomorrow is kind of the last day, well at least for activities as dancing starts back this Saturday. School goes back on Tuesday for Ella and Wednesday for kate.
With tons of eggs in the fridge at present, I made a vegetarian quiche which was a huge hit.
Gordon has been inside alot more due to the cooler weather. His favourite place to sit is on the ottoman.
It's been nice to unwind from our regular busy days. Kate has been sleeping in late (as they do at this age) and going to bed way too late. Ella has been sleeping until about 8am which is good for her.
It's been good to find the time to dust properly and change things around a bit. I love to move bits and pieces around the house. It keep things interesting.
I really love this lampshade. I bought it on Mother's day for myself, and at first I wasn't sure, but now I really love it!
I roasted some veges while I cleaned the kitchen. We ate half tonight in a stir-fry and kept the rest for tomorrow night.
While cleaning the kitchen, I decided to move the microwave down from it's spot to the bench so the girls are safer to start using it themselves.
I popped some jars in its place. Not sure if they will stay yet or not.
My desk got a good clean too. I know the calendar says 2011, but I just keep it for the picture. One of the girls made it for me (I can't recall which one!)
It feels good to get to the end of the day and get rid of some of the clutter and go to bed with a clean and tidy house!
