Well, hello there!
We've had another stellar day, and it's not quite 2pm!
Got up early (thank you, Claire.) Made experimental pancakes for breakfast. We had no all-purpose flour in the house, nor vegetable oil, so I substituted self-rising flour for the flour, baking powder and salt and used olive oil. The result was pretty dang tasty. Fluffy with a little understated whiff of the oil. I usually make small pancakes, and these were good with butter and syrup, but would have been fantastic with a bit of creme fraiche and smoked salmon or caviar.
After breakfast we headed out - this time, heading to our storage locker so I could swap out my summer clothes and get my fall/winter stuff to the house. Yes, it's 70 degrees today, and will be getting warmer this week, but I had to go now, or I'd be more beholden to Kayakboy's new work schedule.
On our way, we passed a big community yard sale and stopped in. While the rest of the family wandered around, I rummaged through one table that was nothing but bins of baby girl clothes. More stuff for the little girl. Hats for the fall, some more pants and a cute jacket for when the weather turns cooler. (I do object to Elmo and that other muppet girl on there, but I didn't object to the $2 price tag.)
Then we went to storage, at first, Kayakboy and Claire stayed around, and I got started, but I realized it would be easier if I were on my own. I wanted to get into it. So off they went to go to Home Depot, and I was left with the bins. By the time I was done - all the clothes were better organized into Kayakboy, mine, and maternity. I had two bags of donations to Goodwill, and I had my fall winter stuff organized and ready to come home. I still have to work on getting the stuff organized in my dresser and closet.
Then we came home, had a little lunch, and Claire is now, NOT napping. She's miserable, but I am trying to be as hard-hearted as I can.
