during nap time
today during nap time i decided to air out the house. i turned off the heat and opened the windows. the heavy rain outside was the soundtrack to my quiet morning activities.
i sliced potatoes and put them in a saltwater bath. there they will stay until dinner when they will be tossed with oil and tossed into a hot oven. then they will accompany pork chops and asparagus for a hearty, yet fresh spring meal. perfect for a rainy friday night. maybe we'll even build a fire in the fireplace.
before nap time i dropped by my favorite bakery to pick up another springtime rite of passage, a rhubarb danish. eaten with a steaming cup of tea and the chilly, wet breeze from the open window. so perfect.
and now nap time is coming to an end. time to walk the little one up - so he'll go to bed at a reasonable hour - and get ready for the big one to come home. she's out seeing her very first theater performance, a matinee of Alice in Wonderland, with her preschool. and the poor wet cat is meowing at the door...
