It's Cold Again...

It was so nice and sunny and then BAM!  We're hit with rainy weather in the thirties.  Blah, I want the sun back!  I'm trying to tell myself we need the rain so the flowers can come, but it's hard when I have to bring the dog out and the wind whips us in the face and Ingrid cries to go home.

We tried to continue going outside, but even Ingrid didn't want to, so we found some inside things to do.  We met some friends at Urban Toddler the other day, where they go to play and scream and run and I didn't have to pick up after them!  We went to the library and got new books.  We have colored.  I did a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle, with a little "help" from Ingrid.  And yesterday we got a package of fabric from our friends Heather and Penelope, so we made some new pants.

Ingrid liked them :)

We also made some bread yesterday, since Ingrid was bored and getting on my nerves.  I thought that perhaps doing something together would make us both happy, but she kept trying to eat the flour and get her hands in the warm gooey yeasty mix.  I ended up getting more irritated, I'm such a bad mom!!  When it was time to knead the bread, though, she did a lovely job with her piece.  We had a miniloaf pan so she got to bake an Ingrid sized loaf of bread.  She thought that was pretty cool.

And today we are meeting some friends at Ikea.  They're shopping, Ingrid and I will get meatballs and browse around for our new house.  Not very exciting, but that's our life.
