Day 135: Corn tortillas

Today was a pretty good day.

After breakfast this morning the kids were making Q-tip and pipe cleaner dolls and some other things for a bit, then Girl got dressed to play outside in the fresh snow. Boy stayed inside to make dough for corn tortillas, then joined Girl outside while the dough rested. They stayed out there for an hour or more. When they finally came in, Boy made tortillas for everyone for lunch.

After that we went to the library so I could pick up holds, and both kids picked out some books on their own to read.

When we got home Boy started reading Charlie and the Chocolate factory until it was time to get ready for ballet, and I fed him dinner before he left. While they were gone, I wrote a chapter of Girl’s musk-ox story for her, and we did a couple of other little things together.

When Papa and Boy got back, Boy was completely immersed in his book until it was time for bed, and kept reading in bed, too.

Tonight it’s going to snow more, so Papa will be home with us yet again.

  1. I used to make tortillas (mostly flour, but occasionally corn). Then we moved to Colorado and I found that I could buy fresh ones that were cheap and better than my own 🙂 That is something I’m going to miss about this place.
