Hence my absence, not just on my blog, but in general. I'm in major check out mode.
Which explains why I let my son sit in the kitchen sink and eat chocolate cake batter. I should mention he is wearing the same clothes as yesterday, and possibly the day before.
The chocolate cake batter is from my first attempt at a gluten and dairy free cake. I've modified my favorite cake recipe; I'll report back if it's edible.
Taking a cue from the chickens, we are loafing about and eating our way through the days. Unlike the chickens, we are not eating my blueberry bushes. Excuse me while I go shoo the girls away from my precious plants.
It's a darn good thing we have a lot of chicken wire. I have some fencing to do.
Here's a few posts that I've really enjoyed this week:

I haven't been doing much making outside of the kitchen lately (made this soup twice), but I think I'll make some time next week for this bath mat. Maybe a smaller version to go on the counter for drying dishes too.
We're taking our show on the road today. Going down to my mom and dad's to do some more eating and loafing about; taking chocolate cake and black bean soup. Making the most of a rainy spring break. Even going to see a movie - a rare treat indeed for our family. Here's a little preview.
Don't hold it against me, but I'm loving this song.
I'm hoping to check back in by Tuesday when the big yellow bus returns to our hood, maybe even get some clean clothes on my boy. See ya'll next week!
