By which I mean here. At home. It has been raining like crazy for the last two and a half days, and considering the baby's lack of enthusiasm for tromping around in the out of doors in a storm, plans like sailing paper boats down at the lake have had to be put on hold. Which is fine, I suppose. It's four o'clock on a Wednesday and I'm in my pajamas, and if I were younger or cooler (or both) I might try to pretend that this doesn't constitute my idea of awesome. But I think we all know better.
I needed to re-up on my various gluten-free flour blends, so a few minutes was dedicated to that cause this afternoon. I'm pretty much exclusively baking out of the magical book at this point, so I use the flour blends from there. I have strong and deep feelings about the importance of having the kitchen situation run as smoothly as possible these days, hence the need to mix up larger batches of flour ahead of time so that I can just bake when the whim strikes (instead of doing lots of measuring and mixing when I would just like to eat a cupcake already).
In other news:
- Imagination Soup has a nice little post about Alphabet Glue up, and you can find both a free project download and a discount code by hopping on over to check it out.
- For Read Aloud Book Along families, the first surprise activity has been posted to the site, and you can find it on the picture book page. The chapter book activity should be up in a day or two. I've chosen the books for the July round of the Book Along and will be sending out an email with the selections by the end of the week. They are uniformly awesome reads, and the chapter book is so incredibly good that I cannot wait to read it along with you. If you'd like to join us for July, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you set up.
- It is more than possible that I have been secretly working away on a very fun project that I will be sharing with you all shortly. Hopefully by Monday, if not sooner. You'll totally know it when you see it.
