Week 13 – March 26 – April 1, 2012
Monday, March 26th: I made these “Knock You Naked Brownies” for my book club meeting. I should mention that my book pick was The Birth House. Here is the link to the book on Amazon.com. It was a book enjoyed by everyone! Thank you, Aunt Barbara for the recommendation!
Back to the brownies…
They were very yummy. I shouldn’t have made them in my last weeks of pregnancy, because I wanted to eat them all! While I was making them I realized I had made them before. I had trouble taking them out of the pan (both times) while they were still warm, like the recipe says. They were easier to remove from the pan once they were chilled. It was frustrating and I swore I wouldn’t make them again (both times). My friends’ response to the brownies convinced me that I will have to make them again. Click here for the recipe.
Tuesday, March 27th: Henry played outside a lot today.
Just before dinner we saw him on the small gate talking to Mystique. Jack went out with the camera to see what he was doing. I thought he looked cute until I saw these pictures of him aiming the toy gun at her.
Wednesday, March 28th: Another beautiful evening and perfect for a walk. I think the boys had some kind of monkey in them today because they seemed to want to climb on everything!
Thursday, March 29th: Robbie played basketball in the barn a lot this winter and now he has been spending time on the cement pad outside the garage dribbling the ball.
Friday, March 30th: I started cleaning out the garden. Last fall I didn’t have the energy to pull the corn stalks and milo out. Today I did. It took me two days to pull about five rows out.
Saturday, April 1st: I got a little help from Robbie today with the milo.
Sunday, April 2nd: We headed out to the garden after Jack tilled an area for us.
Robbie planting our first row of sweet corn. It might be a little too early for this!
I guess this is how Henry digs for worms. I also saw him doing a head stand in the big hole that he and Charlie dug. “Me looking for worms!”
We walked down to the edge of the field to make firewood, first stop was to climb on the rocks in the pasture,
and finally we were able to help Jack with the firewood.
