We were all feeling more normal today, I'm happy to report! I was glad we had the weekend to recoup some more and maybe begin venturing out some after a rough week stuck inside.
The kids and I made our own paper books after breakfast. Rosie wrote a cute one about our family and what we all do. My page was my favorite.
"Mommy does dinner." Yes. Yes, I do.
I was tickled at the fun things they came up with and wrote about. It felt good to get creative with them.
After we got dressed and ready, we decided to go visit our new city's library and get our library cards.
The children's section is on the first floor with the community rooms and check-outs, so it's not a super-quiet floor. The adult floors are upstairs. That's great library planning! The kids loved this painted bathtub to lay in and read.
Everyone there was so friendly, and it was full of people. There are tons of programs each week for children, and it seems like a really vibrant, active place in the city. We were pleased!
The gentleman who helped us get our cards was a Hispanic man in a fedora who reminded us of our Papaw. That made me miss our families. He was so kind and helpful.
We got loaded up with books, videos and music, and we headed for a couple more errands. At home, we tried our hand at homemade tortillas.
They were OK, but not the greatest. Next time, I'm going to have to get some lard. There's just no other way, I think. I'll likely never make them as well as our aunt Betsy! J helped me cook them, and he toasted them on the iron skillet in some bacon grease. That helped a lot. We had bean and cheese burritos for dinner with them. Not bad!
The girls had a great day and seem to be on the mend. It was so good to get out and have fun together as a family.
