( to complete by 10 AM so we can go to the park and run errands in town)
  • call council regarding garbage collection of broken suitcase.
  • clean kids window and shower stall
  • wash dishes, counters, floor
  • hang laundry
  • wash mattresses- all three
  • water plants
  • take down pictures from black board wall to get ready to repaint it

List of interruptions to far.....
  • girls insistent need for 'popsicle tattoos' to be placed on arms (free in package)
  • Stella's need for help in cleaning her toys up from all over the living room floor
  • fight on sofa regarding someone kicking someone ( an accident? doubt it)
  • Stella needs NEEEEEEEDS SOMEONE to play the 'alphabet' game (which in reality is a math puzzle game that is meant for older kids but she refuses to accept this )
  • general distress and finger pointing over who put the kids toothpaste where
  • repeated questions regarding the lost toy of Woody
  • sofa troubles again, someone took someones pillow. 
  • help needed in cutting windows for a shoebox house for the cat
  • confirmation needed by middle child (third time in the last hour of how many days till the visitors from England come)
  • cup of tea for myself only to realise we are all out of milk. blasted!

It is nearing 9 and only the dishes and hanging the laundry have gotten crossed off the list. 
Boy am I wishing we had milk, a cup of tea is needed. 

May your day contain a decent cup of coffee or tea and an accomplished list of done things. 

There is someone in the house who is good and relaxed though.

Summer moments

Along with local and Sicilian peaches ad nectarines, figs are back in season here, 
so ricotta and fig tarts ahead. Fruit smoothies are a daily treat round these parts, 
above we have the addition of little Gabi at the kids table. 
As is obvious she blends right in, such a dear, suppose this is good preparation for four!
