Joys of Life

Well, I've been neglecting my blog lately. Part of it was catching a cold and not feeling like doing anything, part of it is catching up after my cold, and part of it is that my husband has been needing the computer for school in the evenings.

I'm excited to be on my feet again after being down for two or three days and have been trying to slowly but surely get my housework under control. I've been working on laundry, cooking and dishes.

Yesterday I made Boston Baked Beans and Brown Bread. Unfortunately, I didn't plan quite enough cooking time for the beans, so they weren't entirely done cooking. The bread, however, turned out scrumptiously. Mmmmm...even though it takes two and a half hours to steam, I'm definitely making it again!

Little Man has been busy toddling around all over. He still does that cute little half-march walk, but he rarely crawls anymore. He is a busy busy boy and is rarely still. Yesterday I managed to catch him by the seat of his pants as he was tumbling down the stairs head-first toward the concrete floor! I think I'd better keep a closer eye on him, what do you think?

He is enjoying being able to carry things around the house. Here is what I found when I went to put on my shoes yesterday. I found a cracker with my toes when I put on my boots the other day. ; ) This is such a fun exploring stage.

Well, I need to go and take advantage of Little Man's nap time. I have more dishes to wash and laundry to fold. And I'll bet my fire needs some more wood.

i had to laugh at the last two pictures--the middle one with delight, and the last one with amusement.

:) I love the toddling stage--but could do without the heart-stopping saves! lol! Glad you are feeling a little better.

The bread looks wonderful!

It's so fun reading your blog because we have so much in common, it's a little freaky ;)

Your son is so adorable! My daughter started crawling a couple months ago but she's still having a ton of fun seeing places of the house she was unable to get to before. She is going to have a field day when she begins to walk!
