Got a chance to run into the bookstore last night to take part in one of my favorite monthly rituals … picking up the latest cooking magazine imports. Each and every one has something I’m drawn to this month. Donna Hay’s current issue has a feature on bite-size nibbles and tapas (we love tapas!); Nigella Lawson is featured both in Australia’s delicious. (baking secrets) and on the cover of the British Waitrose’s Food Illustrated with her perfect “picnic plans.” Should be some fun reading.
Nicholas had a playdate today. I swear I think it’s harder to juggle his social schedule than ours! No diapers today, and not one accident – we’re very excited about this new phase, believe me. We went to the store this morning to return 3 brand-new boxes of Pull-Ups, and as soon as they saw what we were returning, and Nicholas in the shopping cart, they all started clapping and yelling, “Congratulations,” knowing, of course, the reason why we were returning them. He was pretty excited – they even gave him a small present. He can’t wait to tell his teachers tomorrow.
With any luck, an early night tonight. We’re real behind on our Netflix movies, so I’m trying to play a bit of catch-up.
