Home: exploring, baking and more.

“Let Nature be your teacher.” – William Wordsworth
This weekend: We explored through the garden. Searching for worms, beetles and what other interesting insects we came across. Our daughter caught a few with her insect net and placed them in her bug catcher. Soon after exploring with her magnifying glass, we released these tiny critters back where they belong.

We also enjoyed our time exploring flowers. Up close and personal -using the magnifying glass. We discussed the different shapes, textures, designs and more.

In my garden: Flowers are bloomed, bees are happy-buzzing around and hummingbirds stop in for a visit.

In the kitchen- My husband decided to make a few donut balls.- Warm and iced over with a sweet delicious frosting.

We enjoyed every last bite...

Later in the kitchen- I prepared a side dish to go along with the brisket my husband had been cooking for hours.  I put together one of my favorites-cauliflower bake with green olives, parsley and chopped croutons. You combine everything with olive oil. Then season with a bit of salt and pepper.- Oh my, it's delicious. We used habanero olives that we picked up from World Market.

We enjoyed our time spent exploring, baking and cooking. We also took our first hospital tour. We have our next one scheduled for this upcoming weekend. I took some notes and I'll compare the two. We experienced rain on Saturday. It was quick, but nice. After the rain came to an end, we went on a nice family bike ride. On our bike ride we saw, horses, trains and the sky was absolutely beautiful as the sun was setting.

Hello and welcome new readers. I hope you all enjoy your stay! :)
