It's not often that I set aside a day to be still, so I savored my slow day today even more. What does a slow day for you look like? I'll give you a window into mine.
I didn't have to go in the car anywhere today. Bella is at home Tuesdays so we made homemade play dough. It was so fun and she made a huge mess with it which is to be expected. She presented me with an amazing play dough cake decorated with leaf sprinkles.
I ate lunch alone. It was only 10 minutes in silence but it was a blissful ten minutes and I had a glass of wine which felt luxurious and devious all at the same time. Maybe the highlight of my day.
I made a big double batch of soup. Arabella had a blast helping me peel the skins off the roasted red peppers. I absolutely love having my girls' help in the kitchen. It's such a fun way to spend quality time together. They love getting involved and I love that little things like stirring or pushing the button on the food processor excites them about cooking.
usually do. It was nice to spend the time to do this. Therapeutic almost. Arabella helped me roll the dough and sprinkle it with salt. We all dug in to a fluffy airy-on-the-inside roll when they came out of the oven. Even Ashlynn enjoyed them.
